My little getter into everything. :D

C has been getting into everything lately.  The refrigerator and freezer, the pantry... drawers... anything and everything.  :D

The other night he was trying to get the mini marshmallows that I had moved to a higher shelf.  He couldn't reach them, so he used the dustpan to reach.  When he did that, he knocked some cans down and one of them cut his nose.  I'm very thankful that it wasn't a big can, or that it hit him in his mouth.  :(  He was very lucky.  I was so upset though... I felt so bad... like it was my fault he cut his nose.  I know that he is a boy, and this isn't going to be the first time that he will get hurt nor the last... but I still feel horrible when he gets hurt.  :(

On another note of getting into things... tonight he brought out the seaweed wrapper things that were in the pantry.  Then emptied them all over the living room floor.  Lovely...

Oh goodness... now he is running back and forth in the living room... maybe he will go to bed at a decent time tonight... Here's hoping.  :D

 This was AFTER I published this post.  He poured out a whole bottle of Italian seasoning, and soy sauce into a couple pans that I had stored in the pantry.  Lovely!!

Happy Thanksgiving.

There are so many things to be thankful for this year.  We are healthy for the most part.  C is growing like a weed and talking so much.  He sure does keep me on my toes.  I am thankful for my Hunny who works so hard to allow me to stay home with C everyday.  I'm thankful for the Jones Institute for working their magic, allowing for new growth.

Wow... things have been busy this week.  I started by making some Thanksgiving supper items earlier in the week.  I knew I was going to have to be on my feet a ton... and I wasn't looking forward to it.

I even challenged myself to make collard greens for Hunny.  I had to improvise a little on some of the recipe, but Hunny said they were good.  I also tried to make homemade rolls from a recipe I had gotten from my godmother.  Both times I tried, I couldn't get the dough to rise.  I'm not sure what I am doing wrong... ugg.  I had to send my nephew out to buy some rolls.  Next time maybe.  :D

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving... We had tons of family come up from NC, although we did miss my brother-in-law who was in the hospital.  I hope he gets released soon, and can come up for a visit soon.

Right Brain / Left Brain

I noticed the other day that 90% of my gray hair is on the right side of my head.  Does that make me Right brained, or left brained?  If I remember correctly from school it is the opposite side.  This leads me to believe the left side of me is more stressed than the right side.  :D 

Could it be that C is left handed... so he is causing all my gray hair to be on the right side of my head?   I think I'm going to go with that.  :D 

On a different kind of note... Why do gray hairs have a mind of their own?  Mine stick up in all their glory.  Not straight ones... they are nice and wavy and straight up.  I would pull them but that only means that more will return.  Now that I think of it... I think the reason I have so many isn't because of C, it is because M pulled one of the obnoxious ones out one time.  That has to be it.  It is all because of M.... although it still doesn't explain why they are primarily on the right side of my head.... Ideas??

Little Helper

I have a little helper in the house.  C has been helping me all around the kitchen lately.  Anytime I go in to cook, he wants the little step stool so he can be at the counter with me.  I think it has to do with the time I let him up there to help me make pie crusts... or a cake... I can't remember.  I was baking something. 
I can go in just to put some dishes in the dishwasher, and he has the pantry open for me to get the step stool out for him.  I let him play in the sink with some bubble water the other day.... Oh my did he have a great time.  I had water everywhere on the counters, on the floor and even in a cookie sheet that was on the counter.  I loved seeing his little mind work to pour from this container to that.  I just wish it was a little less messy for me to clean up.  :D

He also loves to help me empty the dishwasher.  He will take out one thing at a time, tell me what it is and hand it to me.  I think his favorite part is the silverware.  :D

Yesterday, I attempted a trial run of making homemade yeast rolls from a recipes I had gotten from my Aunt.  I want to make them for Thanksgiving dinner.  Anywho, as soon as C saw the flour come out... Oh my it was on!!  He opened the pantry for me to get the step stool and he was ready to bake.  I gave him some flour, tablespoons, sifter, cookie cutters, and measuring cups, he was in Heaven.  There was flour EVERYWHERE.... I don't think I got it all, but with the baking that I am going to be doing in the next few weeks... what's a little more.  :D

I did order for him a Little Partners Learning Tower today.  It will be so much safer than the step-stool in the kitchen.  I can't wait for it to get here.  I have my fingers crossed that it will be here like sometime this coming week.  :D

I don't know where it came from, but the sickness hit me.  It started with faucet nose, and the moved on to scratchy throat... and on and on to the other stuff.  Then, I unfortunately gave the sickness to C.  He now has faucet nose like you wouldn't believe.  Between that and the boogers I can't keep up.  Plus he started running a fever last night. 

He woke up once last night soaking wet from sweating.  I felt so bad for him.  He also had the gook stuff and that kept gagging him last night.  :(  I felt so bad that I couldn't do anything to help him, or make him feel better.  He is still running all over, and going a mile a minute but you can tell he isn't feeling well just looking at his eyes. 

As I type this C has Hunny standing in front of the pantry, but has no clue what he wants.  :D  Sometimes that really gets my blood boiling, but isn't it crazy that it really makes me laugh when he does it to M?  Shame on me.... Shame, Shame, Shame...

Growth Spurt...

Boy howdy has my boy been growing. 

All though the summer he has been wearing his 18-24mo clothes.  We decided that we would buy some 2t jeans for him, and that should last him for a while.  His first time wearing the 2t jeans, they would go over the back of his shoe and he would walk on them.  That was no more than 3 weeks ago.  Now, they are like high-waters.  I should have seen this coming with his weird eating... not eating for a few days... but then all of a sudden he was eating everything he could get his hands on.  :D  M kept telling me that he was growing, but I think I was in denial. 

We went out this past weekend, and bought him some 3t jeans, and long sleeve shirts.  They look huge on him, but I'm sure he will grow into them shortly.  Which makes me sad.  I don't want him to grow anymore, I want my little baby back.  :D

Finally my follicles are growing... well, they have been growing for the last 2 weeks.  Today, there are a couple that are currently at 14mm (or cm) not sure... they have said both measurements... so maybe they are confused.  LOL  We still need to go ahead with the shots for a few more days... and then back into the doctor on Friday to see how things are progressing. 

I still don't understand how the doctor can control these things... but I guess that is why they are paid the big bucks. 

On a cute note... we passed McDonalds today... and C was like ... chicken nuggets Mom, chicken nuggets...

Election Day....

I must admit... I did NOT vote today.  I knew whom I would vote for if I had gone to the polls and voted.  I'm sure there are many of you out there thinking really awful things about me for not voting.  I know I shouldn't think... what is my one vote... and it really has NOTHING to do with my meager vote.  I hate to say it but it has to do with Jury Duty.

I do not want to do my public duty and be a juror.  I spend 110% of my time with C, and have no regular babysitter, or even someone that I could call last minute to come watch C if I had to go in for JD.  Therefore, I believe it best for me to not vote.  I know many people believe I give up my right to bitch, and complain at the way things are going in our government, because I didn't vote, BUT if the person I want to win, wins.... Then I'll be happy and there will be no need to vote.  Hell, my vote didn't get me anywhere but BROKER and having less CHANGE in my pocket with the last Presidential election.

Oh My.... It has been a while

Where ever does the time go?  I can't believe it is November 1st already.  I can't remember much of September or October.  Maybe I was blocking out the bit of bad news that we got... Ready for the break-down?

Long story short... I have PCOS, and had submit to fertility shots to have our son C.  M and I have been talking for the last few years about having a second.  I loved being pregnant, and have had baby fever like you wouldn't believe, BUT I feel guilty.  I can't seem to grasp how I could love another baby like I love C.  We tried for so long to have him... he is so special.  I just don't know how I could share the love that I have for him.  I hear other say that the love is different, but I feel like I will have to explain to C how come he will no longer be #1.  I feel like I am letting him down and that he isn't enough for me.  :(  It really does make me sad.

We went back to the place that helped us have C, and were given the all clear that on my next cycle we would start.  After the first ultrasound, they found a cyst that was almost 4cm on my left ovary.  We were told that we needed to wait a month, and I would need to go on birth control to help get rid of the cyst.  I felt like I got kicked in the stomach.  Just that quick I had gotten my hopes up and then was told that we needed to hold off on things for a bit.

We went back 2 weeks ago, and were given the go ahead.  The cyst was gone and we were to start back on the fertility shots.  I think M is enjoying sticking me with that needle every night.  He has a way of making me relax by making me laugh, which I think is wonderful of him.  C just watches while Daddy gives Mommy the medicine and laughs with me.  Things have been progressing well, and my follicles are growing just like they are suppose to be.  I was told today that by this weekend, the follicles should be ready.  It is exciting, yet scary.  I can't seem to get my emotions in order.  One moment I am extremely happy, and excited and the next I worry about how I'm going to handle a second baby... and share the 110% attention that C gets right now.
