ok here's his total allergy breakdown

Seasonal Allergies

  • Grass pollen
  • Weed pollen
  • ragweed pollen
  • tree pollen

No animal dander allergies :woohoo:

Perennial Allergies (year round)

  • mold
  • cockroach (dust)

but not dust mites.

Anyone want a most disgusting explanation of the cockroach allergy? Even though we don't have cockroaches in our home, we still have cockroach dust in our houses, and come in contact with it in institutional places like schools, grocery stores etc. We bring it into our home when we bring home groceries etc. Are totally skeeved out now?

She has dx'd him with allergic rhinitis, Reactive Airway Disease (NOT ASTHMA!!!!) and atopic conjunctivitis. She completely agrees with me, (or I completely agree with her) that these allergies are the cause of the majority of his illnesses, they have not been viral, but the small percentage of the viral illnesses he's had have turned into secondary infections because of his allergies. The biggest of his allergies is mold. Jax's mattress is very old. She recommend we encase it in a zip up allergen cover. I asked if we should just replace it, and she said it wouldn't be a bad idea, but that she would still recommend it be encased. We are doing the prescription form of zyrtec daily from March to June, as needed in July, and then back to daily through oct until the ragweed count goes down, then as needed through the winter. She also prescribed him an eye drop for his eyes. She thinks he will grow out of the wheezing and her first thought about it, is that it is pretty much the direct cause of the RSV we had last year. (tells you how serious that virus is)

There is so much to catch up on... I don't know why I have been so much busier than usual, but I kinda wish I could just sit around for a while. lol

Thanks for the link, Mel. Is that the same company as last time? For the cold vs. allergies, I was actually talking about me. lol Two weeks ago, I had a wicked sore throat for 2 days and lost my voice and got what I thought was a cold with a bad cough. I never really felt SICK, just had all those symptoms. Finally started to get better, but then woke up yesterday with all congested and it's much worse today. I've been constantly blowing my nose all morning, much more than I ever needed to for the past 2 weeks. So now I don't know what's going on. My DH says that allergies are like never-ending colds... I just want to feel better! Both of the boys have congested-sounding coughs, but not really runny noses. Brian's allergist said on Friday that he seemed congested and wanted him to start taking zyrtec.

So we saw Brian's allergist on Friday. Did I post about this already? I can't remember. Sorry if I'm repeating myself. We just tested him for sesame, but it was kind of silly because he had such a bad reaction to it the one time I gave it to him that I already knew that was the allergy - but I guess it's good to know for sure. So now Brian's allergic officially to eggs, all nuts, sesame. He's never had any kind of fish (we're really not fishy people lol), so I don't know if he's allergic to shellfish or not. She suspects he might have some seasonal allergies, too, but doesn't usually test them for those this young because she likes to wait to see how they develop and she treats them the same regardless (if they're having symptoms). So she'll probably test him for seasonal allergies next year. In the meantime, she wants him to start taking zyrtec, but when i mentioned this to DH, he said that both zyrtec and allegra make him feel lousy and don't really help him, and he's had much better luck with claritin. so i called the allergist and she said that was fine. but does it really matter if we just all have colds??

The boys had their 18 month check-up yesterday with their new pedi... and I had a job interview right after that, so we hit the ground running this week!!

I like their new pedi. Several of my friends see him and he's very well respected - it's hard to get into his practice and the only way we were able to was because our pedi left. Anyway, I was impressed by 2 things. 1) when he first walked into the room, I had all 3 kids in there by myself and it was a CIRCUS. Micah was wandering aimlessly whining. Noelle was upset because Brian had taken one of her crayons. Brian had JUST discovered that these magic crayons actually make marks on stuff and was writing on the door (thank God they were washable crayons and wiped off easily). So I'm trying to introduce us to the pedi - making a wonderful impression, of course lol - and the first thing he said was that Brian was acting absolutely appropriately for his age. 2) I really liked the way that he carefully observed the boys and paid close attention to their behavior in addition to just checking them physically. He was very intent. Also, he's not at all concerned with their limited vocabulary right now. He said that the most important thing is that they are trying to communicate and able to do so with their signs. He also had a response for everything they tried to say to him, which was very sweet and something I also try to do. When he left, he thanked all 3 of them for their time. lol

I wasn't thrilled with our brief discussion about vaccinations. We don't do the MMR or the chicken pox (I'm trying to find the individual components of the MMR so we can do measles and mumps and skip the rubella) and he gave me some grief about it, stating that Dr.Sears cites himself several times and didn't have adequate medical evidence to back up his claims. I did point out that we have stayed on the schedule for vaxes (which he conceded) and he also offered to investigate the whole aborted fetal tissue issue (which is the reason we've skipped those 2). So I guess it was sort of resolved, I just didn't really like the way the conversation felt - but I bet he has to fight with parents about vaxes a lot...

About the job interview - I've been hired to teach class piano and private lessons at a local university. The chair of the piano dept was incredibly kind and gracious and completely willing to be flexible with my crazy schedule. She was also glad I am going to be taking a 4-6pm class for her because that means she gets to leave earlier on Tuesdays next year. I'd much prefer to just be a SAHM full-time, but since I do need to supplement our income, this is going to be a great situation and she was willing to give me as many sections as i wanted, so this will allow me to add hours if I want as the kids get older. The pay is great, too, better than I expected, so we're pretty happy and thankful. I agreed to teach one class and 2 hours of private lessons, so that brings up my total number of teaching hours to 9 a week.

Crap, Brian just woke up. Sad I'm so glad he sleeps well at night, because he is such a bad napper.

Where is Julie?

Hiya! Sorry I've been missing but was having log in issues that hopefully are all fixed now!!! I didn't even lurk here because I knew I couldn't comment lol! But I missed chatting with you guys!!!!!!

I'm sure I'm going to miss a lot commenting lol!!!

Emily that is so cool about the owl at Miles' school!! And so glad his party went well, a bouncy is always a big hit!

Peg LOL that Alyssa pulled the pinata on the first try!!! Go girl lol! I bet it was a great party, was it all good even with a Tangled party the previous day?

Colleen, love the swing set pics, that is one cool set!!!!

Mel, so glad Jax has a dx on the allergies!!!!! I hope they lighten up as he gets older and it's not life long. And hope he gets some relief as well, especially with the secondary infections!!! Love the MJ stash and pics, I cannot believe how big Abs is, she's beautiful!

Nicole I'm sorry about your MIL, I'm sure that's painful!! And sorry about the clothes being given away too...that happened to me with my cousin's wife...jumperoo, exersaucer, mat clothes, etc...she sold ALL of it, and I specifically said I wanted it all back. Stupid people!!!

Candace hope the girls are calmer for you today! So are the boobs built into the bras? I would imagine it would feel itchy or something after awhile against the scar tissue, I like your plan of putting on the tatas when you go out but just relaxing at home!

Okay that's all I remember I'm sorry!

Hi Kelly, Karrie, Emily c3po, Allie, Ruth and anyone else I didn't mean to forget lol!!!

"luangwa" wrote:

Ok, first. I'm sorry you can't tell if you are sick or if you have allergies. I can't explain the differences and how I tell if it's allergies, other than I feel sick when I have a cold, and am just miserable with extra snot and mucus when it's allergies. Maybe if you google allergies symptoms versus cold symptoms you'll come across a great site where someone has compiled a better description.

You had not told about Brian's (man I hope I chose the right one Wink ) allergist appt last Fri. and (this is just my opinion) but side effects from medications (zyrtec vs claratin) are very individual. And if Rick had said to me what Al said to you, I think I would have taken it with a grain of salt and gone with the original recommendation of the allergist. Zyrtec does nothing for Rick but makes him drowsy for the first couple of hours. But, a placebo would make Rick drowsy. Zyrtec works great for me. Claritin does not work for anyone in this house. Allegra is my second drug of choice. FWIW, Claritin doesn't work for most people. This is what I learned today, yes it does matter even if you just have colds. Because if you have allergies, you already have a sinus cavity that is irritated and ripe for an infection, add to that an increase in thick mucus and you have the perfect recipe for a sinus infection that will need an abx. Keep the mucus production under control with an antihistamine and keeping it thinned out with a saline nose spray and you have less chance of a bacterial infection setting in.

Yay, Julie's back!

Ruth, congrats on the new job. I bet you will LOVE getting out and teaching for those hours per week. A little time to be YOU and focus on something you love. Great that they are willing to flex etc.

Mel, wow, your allergist sounds awesome! Hope that the new prescriptions help to keep Jax feeling well.

Emily (ms), that owl sounds fantastic!

Peg, funny that Alyssa pulled the string first. I'm sure that the kids enjoyed the stuff in in, even if they didn't get the "mystery" of when it would break!

We just got approved for a home equity loan...yay! We are consolidating all our debts into one, which eliminates a HUGE amount of money out of our monthly budget that is going strictly to interest. And we renewed our mortgage at a lower rate, which also saves me money each month. Sigh...that is such a huge relief for me right now!

Candace, I meant to comment on the tatas...yes, I would only wear them out and about too...may as well be comfy at home. My aunt has ones that are just individual, that you stick into the pockets of the bra. Similar idea?

Mel, love the pics of Jax and Abigail!! They are both so cute. And wow about her closet! That is a lot of MJ.

Colleen, that swingset looks like a lot of fun! Are you still rowing?

Julie!!! Nice to see you back chica!

Nicole, congrats on the loan!!!!

Candace, hope today is going better for you. Yay for new boobs though Smile

Peg, sounds like you were crazy busy during Alyssa's party. It is hard to actually enjoy kids' parties because we as moms are too busy making sure things go as planned. And the last two birthday parties that I went to that had the pull-string pinatas all the goods came out after the first string was pulled.

Ruth, congrats on the new job!

Hi Kelly, Kat, Emily, Allie, Deb, Karrie and all other wonderful BBB'ers!

"msmama" wrote:

Ruth - FWIW, Clairitin seems to be the only thing that works for Miles and I. And yes, I have argued with both of our docs about it because, like Mel said, usually it's the opposite.

I have to say, I notice a HUGE difference in both of us now that we're both taking the allergy meds daily. Ours was definitely allergies and NOT a virus like I was thinking. And, ever since I moved to New York, my allergies present differently. I don't know if it's just a different allergen or what, but I get a really bad cough and sore throat (from post nasal drip). But if it STARTED with a sore throat, I'd be more inclined to think virus, personally.

And yea, what made you think to test sesame?

Mel - did you ask to be referred to an allergist? I was under the impression that most allergests wouldn't test for the seasonal kind of allergies at this age. Or maybe I'm just forgetting that our kids are getting older, lol.

Yay!! Julie's back. Love the picture of your kiddos!

Emily - love your new siggie pic, too!

Colleen - WTG with the rowing!

"mist1006" wrote:

Belle and Ben are both on Zyrtec daily. It's really been pretty effective for them, aside from the hope that it would help keep the fluid in Ben's ears under control. They both have quit coughing horribly and sneezing. Belle has also lost her allergy shiners.

"Jumarse" wrote:

Ruth very cool about the job opportunity! That is perfect that it works into the schedule! And man on the allergies, I can't believe sesame though, seeds are so rarely allergens I thought, unlike nuts. Does dh have any food allergies or just seasonal?

Kerri cute stash!

Hmmm, I was thinking Colleen has a pretty good MJ stash! Hmmmmm?

Emily c3po love that siggy! How have you been? What's the date on dh's return now, I forget.

Ms Emily Claritin works for me too lol! Well, as well as anything can work....does anyone feel "all better" with meds or just not as bad as without?

Kat how did Sophia do on her first flight?

Hmmmm some waffle cone ice cream is calling my name!

"EmilyC3" wrote:

Julie, and I love YOUR new siggy! Colby and Daphne look so much alike. Mmmmm waffle cone ice cream sounds yummy! DH is coming home at the end of August. Hopefully they do not push that date back a third time.

Colleen, holy crap an hour of rowing?? :bowing: and that is all I have to say about that Smile

Kerri, you have got quite the collection too!

Kat, how is Sophia doing with the PT today?

I get the meanest mother of the year award today..... Gweny has been TERRIBLE lately. Fit throwing, talking back, yelling at me, telling me no, not listening, laughing at me when I put her in time out or take toys away from her....and the list goes on and on and on. Finally today I snapped and completely lost it. I went and got her my little ponies and I made her throw them in the trash can Sad She was so upset. I have never seen her that sad before and it wasn't a fit throwing cry she was doing, she was really hurt. I made sure to put some plastic bags in the trash can before I made her throw them away so I could take them out of the trash. After letting her cry it out for a good bit I did give them back to her and she was the most grateful I have ever seen her! She has been good as gold since so I guess I got my point across, but manoman I really do feel bad and I hope I didn't traumatize her or anything Sad

Julie- Sofia did really well on her first flight. At first she.wanted to sit on my lap, but I convinced her to sit on her seat. They didnt complain about their ears at all. I brought the DS and the LeapPad and they were good as gold.

Emily- hit and miss today. She held it for a while but peed at Mil's. Came home and peed onbthe potty again. Then she peed and pooped in a diaper. Then peed on the potty. Finally sat her before bed and nothing. I hope she holds it over night, but she usually does. I think what you did is not at all terrible. It is hard to watch our kids heart's be broken but you let her know there are consequences to her actions.

"YooperGirl8" wrote:

ugh..allergies. Claritin does NOTHING for my allergies. In fact, Zyrtec knocks me out, but doesn't really help. Allegra used to help, but then stopped. The only thing that did help when I had allergies in full force (thank you Grace) was Clarinex combined with Singular and some nasal spray and eye drops. I think the effects of each drug really depends on the person.

Emily, I am THIS CLOSE or this close[SIZE=2] however I should type it - to doing something similar to Cadence. She is acting so crazy these days and it is obvious she doesn't believe anything I say. I don't think you did any long term "damage" to her at all. Yes, she may remember it, but in a way that will benefit you!!!

I started this post hours ago. Gonna have to go read again to see what else I was gonna reply on. lol

Emily and Julie, LOVE the new siggies!!

you got me. Wink

When they did the blood test on Micah (I think it's called RAST? - it's just a screening test for the common allergens), sesame came back as a possibility, so that's how I even knew to suspect it. Apparently, sesame is not a common allergy for the average person, but it IS a common allergy if someone already has other food allergies, if that makes sense. There was no doubt that Brian reacted to the sesame. I gave them a little snack of hummus on sesame seed pita chips and even though Brian didn't like it and only had one bite, he started reacting very quickly. It was his worst reaction so far. Poor kid was just miserable until the benadryl kicked in. I don't know what else he might be allergic to that we haven't tried yet (aside from shellfish). I feel like he's eaten just about everything except fish by now. I really hope he outgrows these allergies!!

Sounds good to me. I'd like to think allergies wouldn't make me this miserable. That, and my DH is allergic to just about everything and he hasn't felt that bad today... I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Waffle cone ice cream? Nope, DH doesn't have any food allergies (except his skin reacts to red wine - his face gets splotchy and his lips turn gray. kinda freaky.). I really hope Brian outgrows them. And I hope Micah isn't allergic to anything (we haven't tried peanut butter with him yet, but he's been fine with everything else... although he does have eczema so there's something out there that he's allergic to).

Candace, yay for boobs! My grandmother liked that she could take hers off. lol

Nicole, awesome news about the home equity stuff!!!!

Emily, you gotta do what you gotta do. You were nice to give them back to her. I made Noelle throw something away a few months ago and she didn't get it back... so I guess that means I actually have the title of world's meanest mom. lol

OK, I forget what else I read, sorry. Gotta get to bed.

New thread whoohooo lol!!!

Emily, you are totally not a bad mom at all! Really I use the "throw away" thing all the time....I just put the stuff away long enough for him to remember it was thrown out and why, but forget about the actual toy itself...we have so much crap in this house, it's hard to miss a few things lol! I hear ya on the behavior, Colby does the same thing, laughing at stuff, and that PISSES ME OFF to no end!! I think you were nice to give G back her ponies and hopefully she'll remember WHY they went in the trash!! And I really hope they don't push the date anymore for DH to come home...and that he's home for a good while!!!

Okay, Daphne really wants to wake up now, gotta run lol!

But just sore to touch....he is up on his tetnus,so i just washed it real good, and put triple antibiotic oint. On it...called pedi...and he said just watch for infection...poor little stinker....i actually cringed when i had to use a little muscle to pull it out of his foot....it was in there.....right through his shoe and alll....so i guess i'll wear him on my backor push a stroller...not gonna let him walk too much on it today....

Aww, poor little guy, Colleen!! I think the stroller sounds excellent.

Poor Cadence would be absolutely heartbroken too if I threw certain toys away. Some of them she wouldn't care. Other things I would never hear the end of.

In fact, the first consignment sale we did was when Cadence had just turned 3 and was being a holy terror and I told her I was giving her toys away because she couldn't listen. So in January when we were tagging stuff again she told me that I had given such and such away the other consignment sale because she was a bad girl. I NEVER tell her she is a "bad" girl - and dh and I had only kidded with her about giving her toys away if she didn't listen. But it stuck in her head for sure!! And Brandon put some of her toys in the attic when I was staying with my mom after surgery and when I came home she told me almost exactly everything that was up there and how it was okay to give the things to other people, "except for her pink puppy. she loved her pink puppy." They are sooooo smart!

have more to write but h2bak...if a 4 yr old is a baby, that is!!!!!!!!!

Usually a threat of taking toys is enough for Miles. We actually took a ton of stuff to the basement for his party and he hasn't missed it a bit. I'm thinking it might stay there temporarily until I figure out how to get rid of it. The basement is where toys go to die in my house, lol. Sadly, I never know what to do with them so it's basically filled with toys.

Hope Jacks poor foot feels better! Ouch!!

This is the first time my house has been kid free in more than 2 weeks. I'm enjoying the silence, lol! I have a feeling it's going to be pick up way sooner than I'd like.

Morning all,

Emily C3, good for you. Whatever it takes to get the point across. We are having issues with DJ too, and his toys regularly go in time out. Fun times.

Poor Jack! Hope he feels better soon.

Emily (ms) Enjoy the silence!

Hi Karrie!

Well, its still fun times here. My boss chewed me out over a mistake today. Told me I'm not detail oriented enough. I've pretty much had it. I thought I'd stay here until I was old and grey but I'm beginning to think its time to move on. U of Guelph posted the "perfect" job for me today....and I'm seriously thinking about taking it. I'm not sure what it would do to my pension, that is the only question mark. It would mean a bigger commute, about 45 minutes each way compared to 20...but I'm so over being yelled at for mistakes in things that are NOT actually part of my job....I'm doing their jobs and its frustrating. I think I'm going to go ahead and apply for it...any comments?

Gotta run to a meeting.

Okay, so I guess what I did was not really that bad at all. I just feel like I am always yelling and it doesn't help that I always have to be the "bad guy." I think I just need a vacation Smile

Nicole, I say go for it!! I know that I would not want to go to work and be miserable every day. It wouldn't hurt anything to apply.

Colleen, awwww poor Jack Sad I hope his foot is feeling better and you all had a fun time at the zoo.

Peg, hope you had another nice day!

Kelly, this weather is amazing, isn't it?! I know after last week it is good to see the sun.

Mel, I may have missed you mentioning this a while back, but how is Jax doing with his glasses?

Candace, isn't it amazing the things they remember. I know Bradley still mentions things that happened when he was a toddler and I have no idea how in the world he could even remember that happening.

Julie, oh yes, laughing is the worst! That really frosts my cookies when she does that.

Karrie, I hope your day was not too busy.

Emily, I hope you enjoyed your quiet time.

Nothin exciting happening here. We have math night at Bradley's school tonight so that should be interesting. They are supposed to have child care for younger sibling so fingers crossed that Gweny and JD do okay.

Good Evening ladies.

Went to my cousins 4 year bday party today and saw family I havent seen in 10 years. It was nice. I was still my shy self, but at least I tried to engage in conversation. It is weird to feel slightly like an outsider when you are surrounded by family though. I got my aunts address so hopefully we will be hanging out again soon.

Had Josh's follow up appointment today. She wants him to stay on half a cap full of Miralax since he had to accident on a full cap full. She also got us into an earlier appointment with a neurologist. YAY. I am so happy for that. Now we go a whole month earlier. May 23rd is our new date.

Kelly- sounds like awsome weather.

Candace- Josh doesnt remember things from the past. I am not surprised though. I have the worst memory. I dont remember the things I did last week.

Colleen- poor Jack.

Emily mile's mama- Enjoy the quiet time.

Emily- fun times. Hope Gweny and JD did great.

Well, its still fun times here. My boss chewed me out over a mistake today. Told me I'm not detail oriented enough. I've pretty much had it. I thought I'd stay here until I was old and grey but I'm beginning to think its time to move on. U of Guelph posted the "perfect" job for me today....and I'm seriously thinking about taking it. I'm not sure what it would do to my pension, that is the only question mark. It would mean a bigger commute, about 45 minutes each way compared to 20...but I'm so over being yelled at for mistakes in things that are NOT actually part of my job....I'm doing their jobs and its frustrating. I think I'm going to go ahead and apply for it...any comments?

Gotta run to a meeting.
Nicole

I say apply, the worst is that you don't get the job, right?

I was shopping and there was a plat upload. I missed it, but Candace didn't.

Okay, so I guess what I did was not really that bad at all. I just feel like I am always yelling and it doesn't help that I always have to be the "bad guy." I think I just need a vacation Smile

Nicole, I say go for it!! I know that I would not want to go to work and be miserable every day. It wouldn't hurt anything to apply.

Colleen, awwww poor Jack Sad I hope his foot is feeling better and you all had a fun time at the zoo.

Peg, hope you had another nice day!

Kelly, this weather is amazing, isn't it?! I know after last week it is good to see the sun.

Mel, I may have missed you mentioning this a while back, but how is Jax doing with his glasses?

Candace, isn't it amazing the things they remember. I know Bradley still mentions things that happened when he was a toddler and I have no idea how in the world he could even remember that happening.

Julie, oh yes, laughing is the worst! That really frosts my cookies when she does that.

Karrie, I hope your day was not too busy.

Emily, I hope you enjoyed your quiet time.

Nothin exciting happening here. We have math night at Bradley's school tonight so that should be interesting. They are supposed to have child care for younger sibling so fingers crossed that Gweny and JD do okay.

Jax is doing great with his glasses. The whole problem back when he got them was not the glasses, but his allergies. His eyes were so very irritated from all the pollen and the mold from the new mulch we got.

Good Evening ladies.

Went to my cousins 4 year bday party today and saw family I havent seen in 10 years. It was nice. I was still my shy self, but at least I tried to engage in conversation. It is weird to feel slightly like an outsider when you are surrounded by family though. I got my aunts address so hopefully we will be hanging out again soon.

Had Josh's follow up appointment today. She wants him to stay on half a cap full of Miralax since he had to accident on a full cap full. She also got us into an earlier appointment with a neurologist. YAY. I am so happy for that. Now we go a whole month earlier. May 23rd is our new date.

Kelly- sounds like awsome weather.

Candace- Josh doesnt remember things from the past. I am not surprised though. I have the worst memory. I dont remember the things I did last week.

Colleen- poor Jack.

Emily mile's mama- Enjoy the quiet time.

Emily- fun times. Hope Gweny and JD did great.

I'm glad you had a fun time at the birthday party. I do hope you stay in touch with your aunt.
So very happy you are getting into the neuro earlier. You just made my stomach do flip flops, our appt is 3 weeks away.

Jaxon had a block episode last night. First one in a LONG time. He couldn't recall how to say his sister's name. It completely freaked him out, and he actually screamed "I can't make myself remember how to say her name" Sad I said "Abigail" He said, "I know her name, I can't say it." Poor kid.

Emily, I got mad once and threw away one of Jax's FAVORITE books. This was a long time ago, back when he was still in First Steps. He has this obsessive habit of picking stickers and such off of everything and he started peel the pages off all his board books. I had talked to him about it and threatened him etc. He peeled the page back on one of the 'board pages' in his truck/tractor book, and I made him throw it away. I did not get it out. I did not get him a new one. (I feel awful about that now) BUT, he quite peeling pages off his board books.

Aw Mel I'm sorry about the block. I can't imagine how frustrated he must feel, and you too.

Kat glad the party went well! I hope you can keep in touch with your aunt!

Emily how did the kids do last nite? Are you still doing PT? Just wondering if JD is better with other people! When my mom was here I had a doc appt and left Daphne with my mom....first time left with anyone other than dh and she did great!

Nicole I'd apply for the job! Are you vested where you are now? If so I don't think anything should happen to your pension....if not I think they can take back their portion of the investment when you leave. KUP!

Colleen how is Jack's foot today?

Peg glad ou got to enjoy a great day with the kids yesterday!!

Okay forget what else.....

Hi Ladies

I've asked for a catch up day today at work, I'm just sooo behind and I need a day to clear everything from email, mail and worklists. So hopefully i'll get a minute to chat. Other than that I'm physically feeling great Smile just mentally tired and drained because of work.

I hope everyone is doing well, I hear Jack got a boo boo Sad poor kiddo.

oh and I saw the Hunger Games last Friday. Why did noone tell me how freaking HOT Cinna is??? I'm going to marry Lenny Kravitz LOL. TEAM CINNA!!!!

OK my boss saw taht I finished my worklist last night before I left so I have full workload today. I hope I can make it in to chat a bit.

Colleen - how is Jacks foot today? Still limping?

Allie - hope you get caught up!

Candace - How did it go last night with the family?

Miles got a science kit (about colors) for his birthday so I told him we could play with that today. Also going to head to the store to get stuff to make eggplant parmasean. Hope everyone has a great one!

Colleen, where are you this morning? How is Jack's foot doing? Did you end up going to the zoo yesterday? Sorry for all the questions Smile

Julie, I am all done with PT but JD has been doing much better staying with other people, thank goodness. Glad to hear that lil Miss Daphne did well with your mom! It is so much easier to leave them with other people when they are not screaming their heads off.

Emily, I hope Miles likes his eggplant.

Mel, poor Jax Sad I hope he was able to get past his block. That must be very hard to watch.

Kat, glad you were able to get an earlier neuro date. And I hope you are able to keep in touch with your aunt.

Nicole, did you apply for the job?

Allie, I am so jealous you got to see hunger games! Did it live up to all the hype? I hope your day isn't too busy!

I reeeeeally need to get on with planning Gweny's birthday party. I just don't know what to do. I would like to have it here at the house, but since we have no back yard there wouldn't be any room for the kids to run around. The thought of having it at a park or at the pool just completely overwhelms me right now.

good morning.......

it was a crazy morning already...LOL.....
had a great day at the zoo yesterday.....we were there for hours......the weather was perfect, i brought a whole bag full of fruit and waterbottles.....so we were prepared.......because it was a perfect 65 degree's/partly sunny......every animal was out and about and frisky.......so it was great.....the giraffes were playing and frolicking around in their little area......the kids thought it was great!!!!!!!!! we saw the baby when it was 7 weeks old......and now it's as big as it's momma(5 months later) just wayyyyyyyyyy more wobbly.....when it ran, it's head bobbed all over the place....it was so funny!!!!!!! and then of course it peed and pooped right in front of us.....and they talked about that for the rest of the stinkin day.......LOL
i've got some pics.......
(pics of the kids not of the giraffe peeing and pooping.......LMAO!!!!!!!)
jack is doing much better.....he was really unbothered by the whole thing.....he is walking much better on it today.....i soaked it (well i let him kick around in the sink while i had epsom salt in it.....LOL......and we played up there for quite some time, then i tubbed him(even more warm water) and then peroxided it, triple antibiotic oint.....then bed......he seems much better today.....poor little guy.....it was a piece of outside corner molding that had fallen off the side of the house, and it happened to fall behind the cat house(we have a heated cat house that is 5 feet long by 2.5 feet high, insulated, wooden box.....) so noone knew it was there........and jack just weasled his way behind and went to climb on the backside of the cat house.....and yeouch....stepped right on the board with 3 big nails in it.....luckily only one went in his foot....

mel.......i can't even imagine how heartbreaking jax's block was......i knowi would have dieing on the inside, but trying to stay strong on the outside.....oh my to hear him say those words........would have freaked me out!!!!!!!!!! ((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))) for both of you........was that the only issue?? can you figure out what triggered it?? totally heartbreaking!!!!!!!!!!!!

allie.......gosh, i hope you catch up and get some chat time in Wink and i can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going....now i need to go check jan, regan and wendy's tickers........i'm glad your feeling good.....:)

msemily.....i love science kits......max had always been a huge fan of them and now he just raids my kitchen all the time for all the good stuff....like food coloring, bakingsoda/powder, vinegar, eggs....LOL!!!!!!!!! but i can't tell you how many kits we used up over the years......he still loves to grow crystals....... the funny thing is........when he is playing with the girls.....he uses the crystals he has grown as "rewards".......LOL......so now the girls have baggies upstairs of their treasures from max.........LOL...

kat........i'm sooooooooooo happy you had a good reunion with your family....that is awesome and i hope this is the beginning of some nice relationships!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!! for breaking the ice!!!!!!

nicole......i would definately apply for the job...i hope the retirement/pension doesn't pose a huge problem......

emilyc3.......how did it go last night??? was bradley a participant in a special math contest?? how were the littles?? i remember sarah went to a math competition and took 2nd place out of all the participants.....that was like in 3rd or 4th grade......LOL......seems like a million years ago..........going to cheer her on in another state so she could do her math stuff......LOL.....

karrie......hope you get some free time to check in today........

so ruth..........lets see noelle's MJ stash........;) i'll show you mine, if you show me yours.........LOL!!!!!!

Hey all, exam day so I' wont be around much. Yes, I am applying for the job...if I get the interview I can ask the details about their pension. Its more a defined benefits thing that I am worried about.

Colleen, glad to know that Jack's foot is doing so well. Your pics of the zoo are great! I always take so many pics of the animals and not my kids Wink

Mel, glad Jax is doing better with his glasses. I'm so sorry about the block...must be so frustrating for him and heartbreaking for you. How's he enjoying the ipad?

Kat, glad you enjoyed the birthday party. Your family is lucky that you are reaching out to be a part of their lives!

Emily (ms) cool science kit! Alicia isn't ready for that stuff yet, but I cannot wait until she is. I'm such a geek!

Emily C3, glad JD is doing better with other people. For Gweny's party, is there someplace like the dance studio that Ruth did, that Gweny would enjoy that would mean you wouldn't have to plan activites? That is the worst part of it for me.

Karrie, hope you check in today!

Allie, sorry about the crazy work schedule. Do you nap on the GO? You must be made of iron to make it this far along with two littles and an upcoming move and not be sleeping at your desk!

Hi to Peg, Julie, Kelly, Kerri, Deb, Ruth and anyone else I missed.

Kelly, yes you can. You may find that they don't bloom well the first year but they should come back well after that. Just make sure you don't cut the greens back until they die off on their own.

Haven't posted here yet today? WOW I thought I did this morning, but apparently not.

Hey Jules. What's going on in your neck of the woods? Other than Miss D climbing onto tables?

Allie, so let me get this straight. You requested a catch-up day but they loaded you up with offers anyway? So sorry chicka, that bites.

Emily, good luck with the birthday planning. What about Chuck E Cheese or someplace like it that's 'contained'?

Colleen, so glad to hear Jack's foot is feeling better. Smile And that zoo trip looks fabulous. The girls are just too stinking cute in their MJ. Abby is on day 3 of wearing some Gypsy Blue.

Hey Nicole.

Kelly, we did some trimming of the holly and other greenery in the front of the house. Jax helped out, it was hilarious. Of course Abby just ran all over the yard and kept trying to go for a walk. So, anyway have fun with your gardening. Smile

Jax's blocks are just a part of the apraxia. Nothing that really triggers it. The issue is he doesn't have automatic motor pathways, this effects recall. When you speak, your motor pathways are automatic and were made automatic when you first learned how to produce a sound and later incorporated those sounds into words. The best way to describe it is, your pathways are like the expressway, a very direct route. Jax's brain won't always choose the same pathway to make a sound or word, he may have several pathways for each sound/word and each of those sound very slightly different. The blocks happen because his brain just simply doesn't remember how to travel the pathway, or how to complete the pathway it chose.

All the nice weather you guys are having and it is rainy here today.

Colleen- the zoo sounds awsome

Mel- how was Jax today with his speech?

Nicole- good for you, applying for the new job.

Today started out wonderful. Cooked an awesome lunch of Steak marinated in brown gravy and fat free sun dried tomato vinegerette and rice mixed with alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese, tomato trinity, butter, and garlic. It was so great. Played with Sofia. Caught some pees on the potty. Then Dh had another baby talk with me and it bummed me out. I blogged about it and got some feelings out so I feel a little better now. Lets say that with the stuff going on with Josh and the stuff that happened with Sofia that he is scared. I guess I will let him sit for awhile.

Good morning. The site logged me out and then I couldn't remember my password. Finally got back on though, obviously. Smile

Kat, :bigarmhug: just give him time and hopefully you can come to an agreement on the baby thing and both be happy.

Mikayla's bday party is tomorrow, just family coming over. But the stupid dog got sprayed by a skunk this morning. So I'm taking the afternoon off to deal with that this afternoon. Fun times. Anyone have any pointers for getting skunk out of dog???

Don't waste your money with the stuff they sell at the Vet's office. TOTALLY worthless, at least it was 15 years ago. Buy yourself a case of Massengill Vinegar and water or baking soda. Shampoo stupid dog with dog shampoo. This is just to get him/her clean. Then rinse the shampoo, and wipe the dog down with a towel just to get the excess dripping water off, it's ok if he is damp. Then pour the Massengill over him and let him dry. Depending on how bad he got sprayed [or how much he rolled in a dead one] depends on how many times it takes before you can stand to have him around. As long as he is clean you don't need to shampoo again, you can just saturate him with Massengill. FTR, the dog will stink for months everytime he gets wet, or if you stick your nose right up to his fur, so you just want to do this until you can't smell him when he walks by you.
For 10 years we lived on 20 acres and my Shar Pei would get sprayed a couple times every single stupid spring.

karrie.......this is what i used for my dog.......i went through a lot of peroxide.......LOL.......but i washed her at least 5 times with it...i didn't add any water to the mix(and for liquid soap i used dawn.....the stuff the skunk sprays is super oily...so you want to break that oil down)....and the smell was gone.......and she was an akita.....5 layers of different kinds of hair.......but i have heard vinegar works great too......
good luck.........
[LIST=1]

  • In the plastic container, combine 1 quart hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 to 2 teaspoons of liquid soap. Add lukewarm water if needed (for larger dogs). Mix ingredients well. The solution will fizz, as a chemical reaction is occurring. Use immediately - do not store.
  • Do not soak your dog with water prior to bathing. Promptly begin cleansing the affected areas thoroughly, massaging the solution deep into your dog's coat. You may wish to use a sponge or washcloth. Avoid getting the solution in the eyes, ears or mouth.
  • Allow the solution to remain on your dog for at least five minutes (longer if strong odor persists).
  • Rinse your dog well with lukewarm water. Repeat steps 3-5 as necessary until odor is gone.
  • wear gloves!!!!!!!!!

    Ahh yes Colleen, I now remember that was another method that worked very well. Our vet had told us of 2 different methods, but he recommended that we not use the peroxide one, and it also shouldn't be used on breeds prone to hot spots. We couldn't use it because Shar Pei's have extremely sensitive skin.

    huh..i used to use a diluted peroxide with alcohol on my dogs hotspots....used to clear them up quick....
    and candace....it doesnt change the color of the hair....
    you can use a cream rinse on the dogs coat a couple weeks after your positive the skunk smell is gone, but you don't want to add the moisture back in too soon.....cuz it will trap the oil scent.........so you want to dry the hair out in order to wash the oily spray off....this was my understanding....it worked, but i'm sure there are other methods that work just as good....

    Thank you, Karrie, for the reminder... we do NOT need any pets in this house right now! lol I seriously couldn't handle one more thing to do. I hope those methods work for you. On humans, I've heard that tomato something - soup, maybe? - works well.

    TGIF. That's all I have to say about that.

    We went to the park briefly yesterday afternoon and when we got home, both boys were sitting there teething away on their fingers while they waited for me to open the door. Kind of cute and sad at the same time. I'm not sure if it's the shots or the teething (or both), but they have been soooooooo cranky this week, especially Brian, and he's normally my happy kid. It doesn't help that I've been miserable all week with a cold.

    Enough whining. I read everything but only remember Karrie's dog. lol Let me think....

    Peg, so what happened this morning? And what's this about the baby cuteness winning out??? Are you pregnant for real this time? Wink

    Candace, how are you feeling? Is Cadence doing any better? I started sticker chart for Noelle... if she can go for half a day (from morning till nap and nap till bedtime) without whining or throwing a fit, she gets a sticker. We've been doing it all week and she's earned one sticker so far. Sad But she's doing better, on the whole.

    Emily, I hope the party goes well, wherever you do it. I'd be completely overwhelmed trying to do something like that by myself, too. Can anyone help you out at all? What about doing it at a local park that already has a playground area? That's what a friend of mine did - the only organized things were a pinata and the cake. Kids just played on the playground the rest of the time and had a blast.

    What's more fun than grocery shopping with three kids? Grocery shopping with three kids in the rain! :woohoo: Try not to be too jealous. Smile sorry to everyone i missed. maybe i'll be lazy during naptime today and come back to play...

    My friend used the peroxide on her husky, too. She knew that her dog got sprayed right in the face so was able to actually get the spot where it sprayed so it apparently came out really easily. Unfortunately, the dog had rubbed her fact all over the rug before they were able to get the dog clean - nothing could save the rug, lol.

    I remember when Friday used to be super exciting because it was the weekend. But now they're just kind of other days, lol. Not hugely different than any other day, really. Maybe that'll change when Miles is in school every day.

    Cadence has a dermatology appointment in a couple of hours. She has DESPERATELY needed this for a while, but I've just gotten around to getting her an appointment and taking her. It has been a year since she has been at the doctor. Hope she does okay! Because next week she has to get shots. Sad :(

    eew, on the skunks, btw!

    Last night our DVR'd episode of Little Bear was about making a chocolate cake. So, of course Jax started bugging me about making a chocolate cake. I promised him this morning we would do that. I gave him the box and pointed to the pictures of the ingredients and asked him what we needed to add to the mix. He pointed to the picture of the finished caked and said 'we need 30lbs of chocolate'. ROFL

    Colleen, thanks for talking about hot spots, one of the dogs have one now and I'm going to use peroxide!

    Peg, you can't say psych stuff is happening at work and not fill us in!

    Mel LOL at the cake...I like the way Jax thinks!

    Emily c3po, I hope you can find an easy place for the party!

    Nicole hope you get the interview!!!

    Alrighty, all I can recall...

    Colby was puking yesterday evening into early this morning, fun times...so when Daphne naps I'm going to force him to lay in our bed and watch TV. He absolutely won't fall asleep, but at least I'll get to lay down too haha!!!!

    Sorry on the pukes Jules.

    So last night Miles made eggplant parm for dinner. He cut the eggplant, salted and rinsed it and breaded it all by himself (obviously I was right there). Then I cooked it and he put sauce and cheese on and I put it under the broiler again.

    Time to eat- the little sh!t refused to take a bite. I lost it. I told him that he wasnt getting out of his chair until he took a bite (he'd been difficult al day yesterday). Finally he took a bite through tears. I swear the bite was tiny but he chewed for a good 2 minutes straight before swallowing.

    So anyway, that "cook with your kids and they will be more likely to eat it" crap doesn't work at my house.

    Emily, how outrageously frustrating. I laughed a little, but only because Jax would have pulled this same thing and I probably would be just as pissed as you.

    Oooo gotta go check out Kelly's clothes too.

    Speaking of clothes, After 4 consecutive days in MJ, Abby is wearing Naartjie today.

    Emily, I've been kind of pissy at C lately anyway...and a stunt like the eggplant would have put me over the edge for sure!!!! lol *hugs*

    Mel, what did Abs wear the past 4 days. I wanna know! Smile

    I really have bought way more of the clothes than I ever intended. But I like it! And I only buy with what I have in pp!

    Julie, hope you got a good time of rest with Colby today. I am so tired I can barely keep my eyes open and kids aren't napping now because our "schedule" was thrown off track while I was at the doc with Cadence.

    Okay, started this a WHILE ago. brb
