  • Hope you feel better soon @shellbell3845.

    We had one wakeup last night, which isn't horrible, but A has been going to sleep super late lately.  He's always gone to sleep on the later side (9:30ish) because of when I get home from work but for the past couple of nights, he hasn't gone to sleep until past 11.  I'll put him in his crib and he'll just stand up and cry until I get him.

  • LO also decided he was up when DH and I got up. So it's been an adventure trying to wrangle him while we get ready. And by adventure, I mean let's not ever do this again.

  • Good morning! I tried so hard to make it through all of the randoms yesterday but I kept getting super busy or falling asleep. The whale fart conversation had me cracking up, though, so thanks for the late night laughs!

    @paulheath, that's weird. Maybe he was so tired that he was talking in his sleep? Either way, sorry you were up so much last night :(

  • I think my baby is broken!

    I am kidding, but for some reason she refused to sleep between 12 and 4. I slept from 11-12, and DH finally took over around 3 or 3:30. I have a hard time falling asleep, so I maybe slept again 4:30-5:30. She is going to be mad when I get her up for the day in a few minutes!

    Hopefully she sleeps tonight. I have some training tomorrow that I would prefer to be somewhat alert and coherent for.

    Our Angel was born sleeping at 20 weeks due to IC.

  • DD2 woke up once last night.  That's some kind of record, but I am still exhausted so maybe she'll do it again tonight and I can get some more sleep :)

    Work is insane, I hate extra projects and do not have the time or focus to deal with them.

    My kids are too stinking cute and I want to go home and absorb all their adorableness.
    Hallelujah, it's a miracle, I have children AND a signature!

    @kella0708‌ it has to feel so nice to be wanted likevthat!

    It does! I have to say I was quite shocked. She's only been with the organization for a few months, we work very well together and she's become sort of a mentor to me. We talked a lot about "motherhood penalty" and how it could effect my career in the long run. I am going to take everything she said into consideration. I felt so strongly about my decision to SAH and now I'm second guessing everything.

  • Good morning all,
    I'm not sure if I posted at all yesterday because busy but I was able to lurk a bit.

    We've finally committed to sleep training DD to drop her night feeds which seems to be going pretty well and should lead to her STTN. I only fed her once last night and once when I got up, and DH had to soothe her twice. We follow Ferber so no touching, he walks in says a few things to her then walks out. She settled down 2 or 3 minutes after then slept the rest of the night. Hopefully no teeth or sicknesses derail us in the middle of this again. It worked like a charm with DS.

    2 wakeups so not too bad here.
    I hope your cough clears up @shellbell3845‌

    In other news our county has a measles outbreak due to Disneyland, and a confirmed person was reported to have visited our work last week. Ick!! Luckily it was on the other side of campus and hopefully no one else caught it :-SS :-h

    But, happiest place on Earth??
    In all seriousness though, that sucks. It's too bad there are children out there whose parents are idiots and refuse to vaccinate. Are our kiddos fully protected at this point?

    @kella0708 it sounds like you have an awesome boss who recognizes you as an asset.  It sounds like you've thought through things, but it's nice that she's willing to work with you and give you options.

    I haven't researched many of those countries on your list, but Argentina and Brazil are beautiful!

    She's pretty badass. Very smart, her background in international public health is super impressive, speaks four languages, wife, mom. Basically super woman to me lol. I did tell her I would be moving at some point in 2016 so like I mentioned previously my time with the organization in limited whether I go back to work or not.

    Never been to Brazil but H and I loved Argentina! We are leaning towards that as our first choice.

    @kella0708‌ Wow, so many wonderful options! I'm sure it is overwhelming having so many huge decisions ahead of you but that is great that everything seems so positive. Would you want to return to your job even with higher pay and pt hours? Or would you just be returning out of a sense of loyalty?

    That's a really good question. I love my job but I am (was?) very set in my decision to SAH. Now I'm just confused @-)

    This is my lyfe. And the reason we literally have toys in every room of the house - even though 50% of the time she doesn't want toys, she wants ME. I always feel like I deserve a prize if I make it out of the house on time.

  • @paulheath I was just wondering when your due date was this morning. How funny! FX for you!! :)

    @kella0708‌ +1 for Argentina. That's really exciting to have so many different options and opportunities. :)

    @codypup Enjoy your day off!

    Good morning! I feel lost as I read through the randoms. It sucks having absolutely no clue what's going on in here. ;)

    DH and I finished binge watching OITNB last week (staying up until 1 am or later because addicting) and I thought for sure I'd be getting more sleep now that I dont have anything good to watch. Nope. Night time = baby party time, apparently. So as long as I'm up at all hours of the night anyways, what are some must see things on Netflix? And when does season 3 of OITNB come out? I am hooked.

  • Mamosey said:
     @Codypup‌ have you ever told them no? Also, it seems like the scheduling is a little off if they keep having to call you in. I hope it evens out for you and you get the hours (actually scheduled) that you want.
    I have told them no but only in cases where I didn't have child care. I've never said no so that I can lounge and watch Netflix. lol. I'm in that annoying position where I want to say yes as much as possible for $$ and to show I'm serious about this. 

    And YES they have scheduling issues. In my opinion they need to staff preemptively instead of all this last minute scrambling. But no one has asked my opinion.

  • @DreamingBabies I'm 51% sure that it says no touching   ;) . I thought I read that then the baby would become dependent on the touching to get back to sleep. However, I have an older copy so he could have revised his position in later versions or maybe I'm not the best reader when sleep deprived. I haven't read it for months now and even then I skimmed over some things since I had read everything with DS. I just wanted to get down to business.

    Another question from me today. Has anyone wall mounted their TV and hidden the cords? Is it really just as simple as cutting two small holes in the wall and feeding the cords through?

    You can also buy cord covers in Home Depot or Lowes and just paint them the same color as your walls.

  • @kella0708 I second @danaadell! I mean, it's up to you if you really want to be a SAHM, that's great-go for it! I work 25ish hours per week, and it works out well for me-I get some time away from DD, and also get some adult interaction and brain challenges beyond baby-related things. I have had an opportunity to go full-time with my current company, but decided against it because of the flexibility I have with being able to SAH a few days a week. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

  • @sjelwood I thought the same thing when I got that email this morning.  Plus, that's sort of expensive for Old Navy!

  • Think I'm heading for the realms of single parenthood :( SUCKS! I have not been single since I was 17 and met the OH, but we're not handling this teamwork thing very well at all.
    Don't seem to be able to communicate at all, the sex has all but disappeared, and today he told me I'm a fat cow and he doesn't trust me to look after Em with my diabetes the way it's been - for the record I've had 1 low blood sugar in 4 months, no need for a fricking bossy fit!
  • @Dex I'm sorry to hear that. Really. It's one thing for DH to be concerned with your health and making sure you're taking care of yourself, but the term "fat cow" is completely unacceptable. If DH said that to me, I would be very very hurt, to say the least. Sounds like he's not concerned with helping you get/stay healthy but interested in cutting you down and making you feel inadequate.
