~Teenagers & Toddlers~

I'm wondering if I'm really going to survive having the teenage and toddler years in one house at one time! Oh my gosh, you have no idea...unless of course you've been there and experienced it yourself.

This is the honest truth...being a teenager and being a toddler aren't that far apart...they are both usually in some sort of crisis mode...Meredith over whether she can have 7-Up to drink and Josh over whether he can chat on AIM or not...I kid you not...it's amazing! Maybe that's why teenager and toddler both start with t's...LOL!

I'm so far behind on my website and I haven't had a moment to do anything about it...maybe next week sometime.

~Long Time, No Blog~

Wow, I can't believe how long it's since I've posted an entry.

The weather here in North Texas has been just beautiful, sun has been shining, highs in the upper 70's!

Meredith went to her gastro doctor on Friday, her reflux has gotten much worse of late...not sure why. She's going to have an endoscopy done, her last one was March, 2002 so it's been two years almost to the date. They will be checking for damage and swelling and if they find any, the course of treatment will be "more" aggressive than if they don't. Surgical intervention was mentioned seriously for the first time ever...and frankly, I've heard only negative things about having surgery for reflux. On the positive side, she has no pulmonary symtoms at all and her head/sinuses are the most clear they've ever been since birth...I really think that having the picc line in for 21 days last spring did the trick for her sinuses because she's been mostly well ever since.

I really have so much to write but she's pulling on me as we speak and her daddy needs something too...more later~

It's Monday, isn't it? Are you sure? I'm still wondering.

It's 3:15 in the afternoon here and it's the first time I've truly sat down and had a moment of quietness today. There is no tv, no radio, no dishwasher, dryer, washing machine...nothing but quiet...blissfully quiet. I think I can even hear the molecules moving around in the air...LOL!

Meredith is taking a nap, oh gosh does she ever need her naps. She must have come out of her room for 15 hugs and I finally told her that I would swat her if she came out again and within five minutes she's asleep...thank goodness.

I have some ebay auctions closing tonight and ugh...talk about awful...cheap, cheap, cheap...oh well...that's the way it goes right?

Marc and Josh will be at an Eagle Court of Honor tonight so it's just Meredith and I for dinner...guess I'll have a salad and fix her a grilled cheese and tomato soup...she loves that!

I'm just rambling about nothing now, so I'm going to sit here in my chair and enjoy the quiet while I have it!

1. Do you put both your socks on then your shoes or do you put on sock, then shoe, then go to other leg and put on sock then shoe?

~First socks then shoes...I don't like wearing shoes so they are the very last thing I put on before walking out the door~

2. When you button your shirt/blouse, do you start at the bottom buttons or start from the top?


3. Do you put your deodorant on before or after you put your clothes on?

~Waaaaayyyyy before I get dressed...that's part of my after shower routine~

4. Do you floss before or after you brush your teeth?


5. You are out to eat and spill sauce on your light-colored shirt/blouse, do you try to get it out and just decide to let it be, or do you go and buy a new shirt/blouse because it is too embarrassing?

~Would depend on how bad the spill was and what my plans were for the day~

~Woohoo...Sleep is a Wonderful Thing~

We moved Meredith to her new big girl bed on Saturday night and last night is the first time she's actually slept through the night without waking up the entire household.

She would go to sleep just fine but then wake up several times and come in to us and wouldn't want to go back to her bed. We were so tired that we even tried putting her in our bed...she's never slept with us...she's never liked it. She didn't like it this time either...well...except to jump up and down and yammer and talk the entire 1.5 hours she was in there.

We were both walking zombies yesterday...poor Marc was running on about 1.5 hours of sleep.

She's tried to stop taking naps and yesterday I decided that she still really needs one. She cried and fussed for a while and since I told her she couldn't come out of her room she fell asleep on her back just inside her room right next to the door...LOL...what a site! She slept for about and hour and last night was soooooo much better than the last few.

She even slept through the night in her own bed...wonder if it's because she had a nap.

Ok, this has turned into a rambling post...sorry about that!

Have a Great Day!

~Are Naps Gone?~

I guess they are gone for good. Meredith won't take one now and by six pm she's such a crank. She and Marc only have a short time to spend together in the evenings and she's so cranky that it's not even enjoyable...poor baby and poor daddy!

Tonight she cried through most of dinner and just kept saying, Daddy...I need you...she wants to sit in his lap instead of her chair and he wants her to sit in her chair. She's right next to him but still gets upset if she can't sit next to him like glue.

Now that she's in bed, I'm going to rest!
Night, Night!

~Thankful Thursday~

Oh Happy Day! Oh Happy Day!

I can't believe it...Meredith is now potty trained! She did it all by herself...oh my gosh...just amazing!

I'm still kinda in shock about the whole thing.

She started using the big potty last Thursday night and has only had one accident since then...and she was running to the potty when she had that one.

Woohoo! Yeehaw!!! Atta Girl!!! Way to Go!!!

Can ya tell what I'm thankful for this week...LOL ;)

~Being Mommy~

I just love being a mommy...pure and simple, hectic and complicated, peaceful and crazy, every part of being a Mom is just perfect with me right now!

Yesterday was so wonderful...Meredith went to Mother's Day Out and didn't have any potty accidents...so she' basically trained herself in four days...woohoo...well...makes me a little sad too. My last baby is growing up so fast. She told me that she doesn't wear diapers anymore because she's a big girl now.

I managed to get several things done while she was gone yesterday...cleaned a bit, grocery shopped, finished shipping the last of my ebay auctions, etc.

After I picked her up from school, we came home and had grapes for a snack, made a strawberry cake...her bubba's favorite kind and just messed around together...all in all a fun day~

Josh is supposed to have a track meet today but it's been raining so we'll have to see if they cancel or not.

Hope you have a Great Day today!
