the other side

So after 2 and a half years that we have had BAB I still have to deal with stuff from her past. BAB still has what I call a food obsession. I wouldn't exactly say that it is in the area of full on food hoarding, but it is close. If BAB sees food she is literally obsessed with it. She can not think of anything else until she has that food. If it is not available at the time she will sit and watch until it is. She will scream and throw a fit. She will beg. She will ask until I finally say go to your room. And her eyes NEVER stray from the food. I was hoping that this would disappear as time went by. Not so lucky. I would not say that it was worse, but it is always there. Just differently as time goes by.

BAB went to Vacation Bible School last night for the first time. She came home that night and spit up. I don't mean she puked. It was like her stomach was literally just gushing out of her mouth. So now I have to figure out a polite way to tell the nice VBS workers to not over feed\water my daughter. I don't want to, but I have to. I don't want them to feel bad. I don't want them to think I am mad at them. Because honestly, if a 3 year old was asking me for a drink I would say "sure, its just water!' But for her she will drink until she is sick. She has no shut off. The adult has to be the shut off. YUCK!

The girl's were driving me crazy this morning. All they did all morning was pick, pick, pick. LM has found her scream. And uses it often. Especially when BAB is 'bugging' her. AKA-BAB knows how and will do anything to bug her. So after 2 hours of this nonstop headache inducing crap I sent them outside in the cold, wet, windy morning. Yes, you read right. I was sick of listening to them. Actually it worked. I went out and read a book and they got out and played in the mud puddles. After lunch I put them to bed. I took a nap. And then it started all over again. sigh.....

I am contemplating trying to see if LM will potty train. I think she could and I have heard that at 18 months it is possible. I don't know....

I am half watching a Min Pin. This thing is half the size of my cat and as dumb as a box of rocks. Ok, so its not that dunb, but it isn't the smartest dog around. At least if half comes when you call it. Most of the time she just stands and looks at you like 'What?'. Oh well. My mom is actually watching it. I am just watching it today and had it yesterday a little.

I just read My Sister's Keeper. If you haven't read it and want to stop reading this post! I was NOT expecting that in the end. Wow. What a sad story. The whole time I wanted to slap the mom. But the ending is what really cooked it.

This day can not get over fast enough.

old faithful..... or not?

We had to put an invisible fence up for Sheila. After we moved I was really hoping that she would behave better. She always comes when she is called. But she is REALLY protective of me and the kids. If the neighbor is out she will be aggressive and run up to him. And it is typically the guys. Then she started running out to the road and barking and chasing bicyclists. SO we finally had to surrender and put the invisible fence back up. This fence will warn her audibly with a beeb and then give her a little shock if she tries to go over. ( I have tried it. Its really not that bad. But apparently dogs really don't like it) I don't think that she would ever really bite a person, but she nips at them to try and herd them. She is a herding dog. It is her instinct. So when my nephews come I have to put her in a kennel or something so that she doesn't try to herd them. I do it because that is what a good owner does. I don't like that I have to 'protect' my nephews. Really it mostly scares everybody because she is so aggressive looking and sounding. I'm really not sure to the extent that she would go. Although it does make me feel better knowing that if I or the kids was ever in real danger she would be there to protect me or the kids.

This was put to the test last week. Pilot had the kids on our boardwalk that literally goes 500ft through some marshiness and out to our dock. He had taken them for a boat ride and was on his way back. Sheila was uber pissed because she could not go past the invisible line and had been barking the whole time. BAB decided that she was going to jump to a board prolly 4 feet away. I'm still not sure how or why she thought this could happen! Either way I prolly don't have to say that she fell in the marsh. While Pilot was avidly pulling her out and paying all attention to her, he did not notice that Sheila had run through the invisible wall to save her child. And that is why I keep her. I know my kids will be safe with her around.

The Phews

I had my nephews out last night. I believe we all went to bed at about 10pm last night. After BAB wouldn't leave the boys alone I sent her to her room. They were trying to have a 'camp out' in the bed downstairs. Which I thought was hilarious. LM kept getting scared because a stupid toy kept going off in her room. By the time I figured this one out it was close to 10pm. Oh well. They slept in a little. Thank God! After we made it through breakfast we went out to play. And didn't come back in because I said so.... Ehn, not really I'm a big softy when it comes to my nephews. We went in and out all morning.

In other news, I'm hungry. But I finally weighed myself the other day. I really haven't gained that much weight. I have gained about what I did with LM. That made me feel better. I feel HUGE anyways. I am only 31 weeks. Le sigh....

Mom2mom sale

Well, I am going to be setting up for a mom2mom sale this morning. It went from 40% showers to 90% showers this morning....ugh. I am hoping that it is inside. Cuz seriously..... I do not want to sit out in the rain. On the other hand I do not want to lug 20 boxes of clothes and crap into the building. Yuck.

After Burn

BAB's birthday was yesterday. We are still feeling the afterburn. She went to sleep crying. Woke up twice crying in the middle of the night. (it is currently 2:15am. Couldn't sleep due to screaming 3 yr old.) It is not uncommon for her to wake up crying. She has always done this. Always. Usually she has no idea why. I will go in there and she is incoherent and crying. I really can't do anything for her. Well last night I heard her screaming at the top pf her lungs "I WANT DAD-DY. I WAS DAD-DY" And the last part of daddy was a scream. This was not a I am being burned alive scream. This was I want daddy right now because I am the boss of the world. I was like "It is 4 in the mother Bleep. I am going to ignore her and hope she goes back to sleep soon." She did. Just a few minutes ago I heard " I want baby." Over and over and over and over and over and over again. I finally went in after 15 minutes of this. She couldn't find the new doll she had got for her birthday that was 6 inches from her face. Aparently this is scream worthy. I, on the other hand, am rather pissed that I have been woken up twice since 1am because my 3 yr old couldn't find a God Blessit doll. Can you tell I am a little irritated that I am awake and 2am in the morning? I think the worst part is Pilot is still sound a sleep.

Conversations from BAB

And just to be clear this was her talking the whole time.

"Get me some applesauce."

Me looking at her from accross the room... not moving a muscle.

"Ok, here you go honey."

"Thank you."

"Your welcome"

"I really like applesauce. Do you or not?"

"Ohhhhhhhhh! *Squeel* *giggle*"

Me rising eye brows trying to not to look like I am listening and watching.

"I like mommy and my daddy likes mommy too."

"I went garage sale today. I got Dora and chair and I was naughty because I can't unbuckle self. I saw a doggy and I like the doggy. I pet her. She has bow on her. I fed giraffes at the zoo. And Zebras. And peapocks(Peacocks). *Making licking and chomping noise.* The giraffe stick tongue out like this (sticking tongue out) and get it....................."

This went on for a full 20 minutes straight. I have no idea who she was talking to. She was sitting at the table. I am starting to wonder if we have ghosts.........

Croupety, croup, croup, croup.

Well, another round of croup is going through the house. LM has it again. I am guessing like last time that BAB will not be effected by the croup part, but will get a general cold. Of course it is the weekend so naturally she is getting worse..... I decided to self doctor until Monday. Unless she seems to get worse. I am giving her pulmicort in a nebulizer. That is what they did last time. So far she really hasn't had to much trouble at night which is when it is the worst. I gave her a nebulizer treatment a few minutes ago and she is bouncing off the walls. Let's see how bed time goes tonight.

This is the 3rd time in 2 days that I have cried. I. Am. Not. A. Crier. Stupid hormones. And when I say cry I don't mean boo hoo.... I mean all out tears falling down my face in a river. I am a big lumpy sobbing mess. ARGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!


I have to take my dog to the vet today. I think she is sick. I am one of those people who think the worse. OK, I'm not neurotic about it, but............. Anyways, she is part Australian Shepard and (I believe) Husky. She is going to be 3 this fall. My SIL had a pure bread Aussie and he died of kidney failure before he was one. It apparently runs in the breed line. My last dog that died was 14 years old I believe she died of kidney failure at the end. Sheila is exhibiting some of the signs of kidney failure. Now she could just have a simple infection, but I can't help freaking out a little. SO to the vet we go.


Why do the kids ALWAYS have to be sick when Pilot is working? ALWAYS. And then when he comes home they are fine. So he never actually sees how hard it is for me to actually do anything around the house. Or how much work a sick 18month old is. Then as always I get the "So what did you do while I was gone." As he is looking around at the after math of a tornado in the house. *Sigh*

Say What?

So we got a van about a month ago. This was a hot subject between Pilot and I for a LONG time. I wanted a bigger vehicle like 2 years ago. He is just now getting around to it.... I wanted to get a SUV because of the fact that we live on a dirt road and it would suit us more. We live in the "Winter Wonder Land" for Pete's sake. That should tell you what our roads are like all winter. Not to mention that the road is like a sand dune all summer long. Also I was trying to hold on to my last shred of non-mommy dignity. Needless to say Pilot got a van much to my chagrin. Today he asked me if I liked it. I looked at him with an ambiguous look. I had no comment. He knows how I feel. This in turn made Pilot laugh and tell me I am stubborn. Which I will willingly admit to. However, then it went into funny name calling. I am apparently a "weiney boob." I have not stopped laughing. I can't even begin to describe the look on his face when he said it. I will take the name as long as I do not have to admit that I like the van. I will say it is a nice van. But my German stubbornness refuses to admit any likeness to said van. So therefore I am a "weiney boob."

New moon

I am such a geek. I am 28 years old and CAN NOT wait until New Moon comes out. I really liked the books. So far Twilight was fun, but I am hoping that New Moon will be better. It has more financial support then Twilight and a more experienced director. I saw the new movie trailer and was pretty excited. Sigh........ I need a life.
