    i’m the opposite! any time i’m around a kid under 3 i think to myself “nope, no more kids!” especially babies.

    i’ve seen both seasons and i love it, it’s smart and raunchy all at the same time and i love that it’s about women!

    i will say if you dont like foul language or explict sexual material it’s probably not for you.

    were it me i would be wary. if my child had no serious symptoms i would not continue to give her medicine until they know what the problem is or they could some how demonstrate that the meds were at least helping. for all they the lethargy could be from the prolonged course of antibiotics. antibiotics are not the completely harmless medication people think they are and can have very serious side effects, esp with prolonged use.

    if she is still ill after this long on antibiotics then what she has either 1. doesnt respond to antibiotics so it’s pointless or 2. requires a stronger/different antibiotic.

    we haven’t gone yet. i am absolutely dreading it though. Deven and Alley are both a nightmare to shop with. you take them to the clothing section and they just stand there as if they have never seen clothes. they do not browse. you have to tell them, go look on that rack, what about these? have you looked over here? we took Alley to target to get a dress for 8th grade graduation this year. after an hour she took 3 dresses into the dress room and was in there for an additional forty five minutes. when we had to buy Deven winter coat last year it took us four hours and we went to FIVE different stores.

    i had the brief thought to make hubby take them by himself so i didnt have to deal with it but no teenage girl, not matter how frustrating should have to go clothes shopping with her dad :P

    @ pokey i wasnt very clear, sorry. :) he only messes in the house if he’s been feed and not taken out and given ample time to do his bussiness. we live in an apt so he have to walk him, which we do 4 times a day. since we moved he’s been taking longer and longer. if he waits till i get up to eat so i can take him on a long walk in the morning he doesnt. we never had this issue during the school year.

    he came pretty much house broken. the only times he’s ever gone in the house have been very clearly our fault, like we slept in and he didnt get to go out to pee, or i forgot to take him out before going to bed at night.

    i am 100% sure the whining is for food b/c as soon as i open the door he starts doing his little “FOOOD!” dance which he only does at meal times. i’m a little wary to have him in the bed w/ me b/c in the AM Gigi is often in my bed. she is a thrasher and poor axl is a meager 8 lbs. so i’m worried she’s gonna hurt him in her sleep :( no only would it just be awful for the little guy to be hurt Gigi would be devistated if SHE hurt him.

    unfortunately sometimes he takes a VERY long time to do his #2 business and hubby usually doesnt have time to take him on a 20-30 minute walk in the am. if no one is up and about and he has the living room to himself he’ll do his business there. if people are up and he has an audience and he will just hold it until the next time he gets taken out.

    i lived with my father until i was 12, i would gladly eat a meal off his bathroom floor b/c i know it’s that clean. years of scrubbing floors on my hands and knees, sanitizing the insides of dirty laundry baskets and getting up early to vacuum the carpet before i went to school left me with a hatred of cleaning.

    1st, break it up, decide on a system, figure out how you’re going to attack it, then make a list. i have to have a list. today i’m going to do xyand z. i put the list somewhere prominent, ususally on the refridgerator so it mocks me every time i walk by telling me i’m a crappy house keeper b/c i havent achieved my goals for the day. it also helps to envision the level of cleanliness in the home of someone who’s house you think of as clean.

    thanks pokey, we’ve actually had that talk with her already. Gigi’s just a really kind hearted person who wants to be forgiving and honestly likes to play with this kid when she’s not being awful. Gigi will be 8 in august. i talked to Gigi again. yesterday i heard her tell the kid “if you’re going to be like that, i’m not playing.” so it’s a step in the right direction.

    if the other kid didnt realize she was being a jerk before she met us, she did after. i cant tell you how many times i’ve talked to her about treating others how you want to be treated. she’s an only child that gets very little discipline. also we found that where we lived in ohio the adults had very little expectations of children in general. even at school they were simply not expected to follow the golden rule. we had an incident where we reported a kid on the bus hitting our daughter. it took 3 seperate incidences for his parents to even be called. he was not officially punished by the school.

    according to the website Amy is on coke bottles, but i live in the south and it’s a pretty common name so i havent seen any in the store yet.

    i’m probably not going to buy one though since i cant have caffine for fear that one of the kids will accidentally put it in the fridge and i’d drink it.

    we can get our lists online anytime, though the teachers sometime have request lists that you can only use once you get your teacher assignment which happens about a month before school starts. we have a tax free weekend here. some times we do that, but often we dont b/c i do not like the crowds. people suck.

    we’re very glad to be back in the south so we dont have to buy everone parkas and snow pants this year!

    it is the first year we’re shopping for all three girls and the older two are going to need alot clothes wise. Poor Alley is going to need capri’s. she’s so tall even modest shorts would come up above her middle finger so she cant wear them to school. in ohio they didnt care but here in NC they will send your butt home or make you wear something out of the school closet. yuck!

    thanks for the info, Embra. we’ve been doing some research on this and discovered that in ohio a landlord isnt required to do anything b/w tenants. the only stipulation is that the property must be safe to reside in. So, while the letter of the law is that we are not responsible for normal wear and tear, since they arent required to even clean it between tenants they can technically charge of for anything they feel like and we’d have to go to court to fight it. in our case that means a six hour drive and time taken off work, something we cant afford if we lose or even if we win and the judge decides we arent entitled to have them pay us back for those things.

    this is SO messed up. every state i’ve lived in in the the south the landlord was required to paint, have the carpets cleaned and have the place cleaned between tennants.

    there are things we do sometimes to set peoples minds at ease. several years ago Gigi developed this very serious fear about death, she would cry and shake and be inconsolable sometimes for hours at a time. it only took a handful of incidents before i decided to lie. instead of telling her “i dont know what happens when we die” i told her “you’ll go to heaven to be with jesus and all the people you love.”

    no one thinks it’s weird or wrong that i told her that even if i’m not sure that’s what happens.

    i’m agnostic. i was raised mormon and when i was 8 i was baptized. being baptized didnt stop me from forming my own religious views when i was old enough to understand such things.

    if this is really important to you, then stick to your guns, but if it were me i would probably go ahead and do it. getting baptized doesnt mean you have to believe or go to church every sunday. if your children’s great grandmother is catholic and this is important to her then she honestly believes that her unbaptized great grand children will burn in hell. personally i would just look at it as setting an old lady’s mind at ease.

    Magster, i think we’ll get her some ear plugs. that might help, but we have told the older two that we might have to take Gigi home early. she once ran into the street to avoid a lawn mower making noise fifty feet away. :(

    Gigi asked to go see the fire works.

    this is a big deal for us b/c she has always been so sensitive to loud noises that we’ve never actually taken her so i havent been to the fireworks in 8 years either! we’re just going to a little show the town puts on at the local elementary school. that’s all we really have planned.

    i have been known to walk around on alsphalt barefooted (i actually walked the dog like that this morning lol) and i also wear flip flops all the time.

    i use a pretty standard foot emory board at least once a week. it’s best to do it when you’re right out of the shower. then i put on aquaphor, bag balm or vassaline if a dont have one of the other two. you should aslo have a daily lotion regimine.

    i grew up in a time and place when rough housing was expected, esp among siblings. sometimes it escalated. every group of siblings i knew had a story about the time so and so threw X at whoever and whoever had to get stitches.

    we used to throw each other all over the house.
