Thanks Kati! Our families don't particularly like it.. and neither did DS but oh well. LOL DS decided he is gonna call him Dax. That's fine because that's what DH wants to call him for short too.
Hope you have a fantastic day! It is a really busy day! I am babysitting my SIL's 3 kids for the next couple days. I dont' know what time we start today or anything though. I'm a little overwhelmed by it. I don't like watching them that much. Two of the kids are boys and they are foster currently (attempting to adopt). One adores me and respects me. the other doesn't even say hello to me when I come over and hardly listens to me. The third is a girl and she's pretty sweet on me but she's also kinda brat some times. It'll be interesting. DS will be going to his dads house this evening so at least I won't have 4 kids to haul around.
We were going to try to move in this weekend but it isn't going to work out. Which is probably good. I overdrew our account on accident so I need to try to sell some more stuff. ITS SO STRESSFUL> We have had to put $$ into the house we are going to rent and it stinks. My school $$ doesn't come in until next friday and next friday is also payday so it'll be a relief to have some and not feel so tight on money. The house we are moving to is about 20 miles from where we are now so it's hard for $$ and gas going back and forth every day. It'll be fine i guess. DH works close to were we live now but DS is going to school by the other house. Hoping that everything works out easily.
lol I obvious like matchy names Trinity Taylor Sydney and Sophie. lol well kinnda matchy. Whatever. People will always have something to say about the childs name until their are born. At least thats when the comments to your face stop. My ex does not like the name Sophie and neither does a few other people and I told them all well if thats what I decide the name will be then you will just have to get over it. It goes good with the other 3 and goes awesome with Lynn and good with my last name so meh. My kid i get to name it not them
So today was insane. Had the kids dentist appointment and my youngest did good needs to brush a bit more, my oldest one has to go back in a month to get her spacer out and new imprint done so maybe they can place another spacer till her adult tooth comes in. My son has to go back in a month for a cavity. Wonderful.
Then we went to the girls dr appointment waited there a hour and then finally was seen. He thinks its a stomach virus thats going around should be good within the next day or so. He asked if I had anymore questions I said not about the kids lol. (My dr is a family dr so he sees all of us and sees me for my pregnancy and will deliver the baby to) I asked if he had a chance to see my ultrasound? He said yes and asked him if he heard they wanted me to go back to get the rest of the pictures. He said yea I will go back 6-8 weeks from when I had the original ultrasound so I have another 4-6ish weeks till I get to see lil one again to make sure she is still a she and to get pix of her mouth/face and her heart (they couldnt get all 4 chambers last time). So after my next appointment on the 23rd I will get to schedule my next ultrasound. I asked him if he knew that they wanted to change my due date to the 12th. He said no BUT that we were going to keep it the same (December 6) because there is a 6 day either way margin of error before you need to worry about changing it at 7 days one way or another. IDK so we are keeping my due date as December 6. He did say that we wouldnt be able to induce then around black friday and would have to be into December before we could. Which I am ok with. I did bring up the fact that my kids dont like going near their due dates anyway, Trinity was a week early, Taylor was 3 weeks early and Sydney was 2 weeks early.
So we left there got into our parking lot when I get a call from my dad telling me I needed to go to their house my mom possibly broke her foot. So we hurried over there and got her ice and crutches so we could take her to the er when my dad got back(he was out somewhere when she called him and I was closer than he was). So we got her loaded up and took her to the er. Even with her saying I shouldnt be helping her get up and pushing the wheel chair blah blah blah. So we were there for awhile and we ran into my best friend. She was there for something with her gma. We left after awhile and came home finally. Got the call a few hours later from my very drugged up mom saying she didnt break her foot. Just some contusion(sp) or something. IDK. Its been a quiet night other then a few people trying to get stupid with me. Whatever.
How were you guys' day?
Maddie whats up with your SIL's kids? How old are they? BTW girls are brats lol horribly so sometimes.
Totally forgot while we were at my parents house my mom has completely accepted that I am pregnant and she is okay with it. Talking to my kids and me about the baby and everything. Asking questions and everything. So didnt take much time for her to get over being upset about this lil one.
So we had our garage sale yesterday. We probably have enough stuff for a couple of more.
Here's the rundown:
It was hot, humid, and miserable. You stepped outside and your clothes just stuck to you as you began to pour sweat. Ugh.
We had a ton of business bc 3 of us went in together: me, my SIL, and her sis
We collectively made $200 in about 4 hrs.
We took all of the leftover stuff to a local ministry that helps folks in need.
It started raining about 2 hrs before it was supposed to.
No more garage sales until I'm no longer pregnant and its actually comfortable outside!!!
Overall, it was a success!
And this morning I'm up making desserts for our little party we're having for your pastor/pastor's wife, whose bdays were both this last week. Smells yummy in my house. Coconut pound cake, Oreo icebox cake, chocolate creamcheese cake. Mmmmmm!!!!!
What a crazy weekend. Thankfully its time to rest and relax before sleeping tonight then work tomorrow.
Today we had my parents 40th anniversary we just did it "small" ny brother that lives with them was there, and my other brother came into town with his wife and 4 kids. So we had 7 kids 8 and under and 6 adults plus I had my friends kid. We hung out at their house grilled and ate, then took everyone to a park. Everyone had a blast. I got some bigger clothes 24 month-6T and some shoes. Sounds like I will be getting the family bassinette sometime before miss Sophie comes. Which is good. I took my friends kid home and came home. Weve been watching Cars since we got home. My youngest and I fell asleep in the chair here for a little bit.
Tomorrow is back to school night for Trinity. Ug still have details to work out for her so we will see. I have to put her name on all her supplies tonight.
hey- woah. you guys had a busy weekend. Sorry I was babysitting all weekend. I'm home now thank goodness.
My SIL's kids are 7, 8 and 8 or something like that. She has her one little girl and the two boys are in the process of being adopted from foster care. I can tell you ladies... I don't even want to do that again. It was a headache. and they aren't my kids who go by my rules.
Yea thats the problem with babysitting. They arent your kids and not your rules. Im just glad my one brother's kids have alot of the same rules as mine and we are completely comfortable disapplining each other kids. My other brothers kids are horrible for their mom but better for us when we have them since we dont deal with the bs. She supposidly cant deal with them and are up half the night. Here they go to bed at the same time as my kids with me or my brother.
I have a rule for babysitting anyone's kids....they go by my rules and I discipline the way I would my own kid, or I don't babysit. After a couple of times of crossing me, they learn that it is much easier to just do as I say the 1st time, or if the parents have a problem, then I just don't every babysit for them again. But, yes, it can be really stressful/tough Maddie! Sorry you had it rough!
We got to out to McD's tonight with some friends of ours and we really enjoyed it alot. We don't get to see/go out with friends often, so I cherish the times that we do. Overall this has been a really fun/relaxing day! Not sure I'm ready for the week...but ready, or not, here it comes! haha
