I'm giving up on sleep

I've decided that I'm not going to get LP to sleep through the night. She has some other problems that play into it. She has a hole in her heart that makes her sleepy during the day. This making it hard for her to actually sleep through a night when she has slept all day. Also she has acid reflux and spits up quite a bit through out the day. So I'm not surprised if every thing combined that she is actually not tired and actually hungry. So I've just decided to accept the fact that I will not be sleeping a whole night for a while. I will be having a mourning period for lost sleep tonight at dawn. :)

Shopping Therepy

I love it. I went to the Big City and went shopping today. I feel a lot better. I don't know what it is about shopping, but it always makes me feel better. I bought lots of stuff for the babies and BAB. I also got a few things for myself. I have been trying to go to the gym and work out.... So I bought myself some nice work out clothes to try and enthuse myself.

Baby boot camp Part Tres

LP slept from 7pm until 5am. I was in such a deep sleep that I was stiff and sore trying to get up and get a bottle. It was awesome.

Baby boot camp Part Duex

Ok if you all must know LP is in my room sleeping. I will most likely get up with her when she cries. If she continues to do this I think I will have to put her downstairs though. I think she might be teething again since she drooled a bucket today. This is the only thing saving her from my evil plan. So I'll be a nice little mommy and tend to my baby....... Plus, Pilot is going to be home tonight so he can tend to her too.

Baby boot camp

LP is going to go to Leslie's Baby Boot Camp tonight. She had been teething and has been sick for the last couple of months. This has brought on many bad habits. One of them being getting up ALL night. Last night she was up every hour to 2 hours. This has got to stop. She is in our room because she has been waking up all night and I don't want her to wake up LM who shares a room with her. Tonight, she is going in our 4th bedroom and I am not getting up to put a pacifier in every hour. If she is hungry I will feed her. But other wise she is just going to have to figure it out. Because she is almost 7 months. There is no reason for her to get up all the time. I can understand needing to eat at least once maybe twice. I am so tired. I need this sleep. I NEED this sleep.

Peek a Boo

LM and LP are playing peek a boo. It is REALLY cute. They seem to be 'playing' more with each other lately. I love it! BAB plays pretty good with them to.

In other news, LP is 6 months old and is still not able to eat solid food. I am a little worried about this. Her doctor is too. But she said give a little more time. I try every other day in hopes that she might swallow it, but she never does.

In other other news, LP finally slept through the night (mostly). She slept from 6-4:30! I was sooooooooooooooo happy when I woke up and saw what time it was. I may finally get some sleep!

Foster parenting

Sometimes it is hard to be a foster parents. Ok it is mostly hard to be a foster parent. It is just tougher sometimes more then others. Right now I feel like I am the only advocate for LP. And her Guardian At Lidem. The system is broken. Broken. WHy am I the only one questioning weather a certain 'situation' is safe? I think the system is desensitized. They have seen to much. How sad. *sigh*

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Pilot wakes up this morning and turns the kettle on to boil some water for coffee. I'm still in bed pretending I'm sleeping. As I'm laying there I smell something burning. I was like 'oh there was prolly something on the burner.' and I turned over. After about 10 minutes I still smell it so I head to the living room. The smoke was so thick I could not even see the other side of the room. I turned the corner to my kitchen to see what was burning. Pilot had turned the wrong burner on. The one he had turned on had the pan from the night before with a few scraps of food in it and the serving spoon. The smoke was going crazy coming out of the pan. I opened my porch door and flung it over the railing. I am sure that there was flames at one point, but there was nothing left to burn after I went to get it later. Not to mention the spoon was melted in half. So then I put my shirt over my mouth because I'm starting to cough like crazy. I open all the doors and windows. Then I went and told Pilot, who was having a nice hot shower, that he was trying to kill us all. The end result was he was disappointed that it didn't have flames. rolleyes.gif Also I am still
coughing from the smoke inhalation. We had to keep all the kids in there rooms until the smoked cleared. BAB was not happy about the no breakfast situation.

*****No kids were harmed in the making of this story.**********

potty training

BAB is potty trained. In 5 days. We just told her there was no more diapers. She peed a couple times in her underwear, but she got the hang of it soon and just started going when she needed to. It was great! (ok so there was a little more then that, but you get the idea)

In other news- LP has finally stopped her teething and cold/virus/fever stuff. So she has been feeling and acting better. Although I can't seem to figure out her problem tonight. She is a little cranky. But the other 2 are in bed presumably sleeping. YAY!
