She actually saw a guy walking around with her bag and she got SO angry that she ran up to him and tried to yank it out of his hands. She was furious and refused to let go and he tried to fight her to get it back and finally she was able to call over a police officer and he ran away.

    But you feel so violated when someone targets you like that. I'm sorry.
    Thanks I know. I think I would even feel better if it had been my stuff instead of his. He is 17 and at that age their band and concert shirts and stuff mean so much to them.

    On a happier note....my kids are in their second of two weeks of day camp at one of the local YMCAs, and every afternoon this week, Nathaniel gets to do Lego Camp. The boy is SO happy!! Yesterday he gushed about how great it was and when I said, "I'm so glad it's as good as we hoped," he said, "No Mommy, it's BETTER." He's loving every second of his 4-hours of Lego Camp. I'm thrilled. I feel like if I did one thing right in the parenting department this summer, that was it.

    We have more family coming tonight, my little brother & his wife & two daughters will be at our place by dinner. They're staying only one night, then they're off to Fire Island to see my Dad, but we'll all meet back up on Sunday to take the kids to Matilda. First Broadway show for my two, they're very excited.

    I want to go to Lego Camp. Or Baking Camp. Or Star Trek Camp. Beatles Camp. Food Network Camp!

    Totally understand. My concert shirts still matter to me!

    At least it's nice to have connections I'm sure his Dad has already put the word out to any officers in the area to be on the lookout for it. It probably won't turn up but you never know.

    Gloria, that's awful .

    Kim, I think it's great you're giving the doctors as much info as possible. I can't imagine how tough this is for you all.

    Laurie, have fun with your family!

    So is it bad that I really am ready for no family to be visiting??? I might have mentioned earlier that my sister came up on 7/20 with her two kids (my niece is 9, my nephew is 13). Our family life pretty much gets put on hold when they're hear. They stayed with my parents, who live about 5 minutes from us, and we have been up there every single day, for hours at a time. Then my sister left yesterday, and her kids are staying until Sunday. My mom is still having hip issues, so she really can't do anything with them; my niece is scared of my parents house and doesn't want to be alone at all; and I have hardly gotten to see my husband since I've been heading over to my parents house right after work most days. Plus now they're getting on each other's nerves...it's going to be a long 5 more days.

    Gloria, i'm so sorry that happened. I think even though it was probably spontaneous, it always kind of rattles your feelings of security when something like that happens.

    Laurie, I would love to go to Lego camp too! I've been pitching for someone to give me one of those fancy lego sets for my birthday or christmas...but it hasn't happened yet. I may have to just go out and buy them myself.

    Carolyn. Its not bad that you feel that way. Hang tight and get through it!

    AFM, Nathalie threw up again this morning while she was out with the sitter at a park. Seamus is bringing her home now, he had to miss a meeting to do so. Sitter has my car so i couldn't go get her. Doctor called me back last night, most of her blood work was normal. Her monocytes were slightly elevated? I guess that could possibly mean a virus or bacterial infection but she still sounded uncertain. She told me she doesn't know what to do next. She is going to talk to another doctor today and we may have to go back in and see this doctor.

    Gloria, that totally sucks! I had my favorite jacket stolen out of my truck years ago, and I still miss it. It wasnt even an exceptionally 'nice' jacket, but my favorite.
    Laurie, I'm not so into lego camp, but would love to go to camp. I have been debating going to a french camp, but it is a sleep away, 6 week program, and I think the kids are probably still too little for me to go. Maybe just a nap camp. I could totally go for a nap already.
    Carolyn, I understand where you are coming from. I love having family visit, but I also love when they leave It is probably worse when you have to spend all the time at someone elses house. At least when people stay at your own house you can get your own things done. Plus, it seems like they have been there a long time!
    Kim, THat must be hard that they cant seem to figure out what is wrong, but at least it seems like your doctor is being proactive and consulting with others. Hopefully they figure it out soon, or even better, it is just a virus that will quickly run its course.

    So, I had my first night out with the girls last night since the baby was born (he is one). DH does well with him during the day, but he is not a great sleeper, and wants to nurse all evening still. Anyways, I had been out about an hour when I got this text 'stopped crying, still bleeding a little' which freaked me out. Checked back and I had missed this one 'THe little one is bleeding and crying a lot'!!!! So then I was really freaking out and called home right away. Turns out he fell in the bath tub and bit his tongue. Thank goodness I had missed the first text, cause I would have rushed right home when I got it, but by the time I got the second one (4 min later) and called home, he had stopped crying and the bleeding had pretty much stopped, so I stayed out. I felt so bad thought that I came home early and he was sound asleep cuddled in bed with Daddy! I am so not needed any more!

    Gloria, that sucks what happened to your son. It's really a violating feeling, even if it's your car that gets broken into. Kim, I feel terrible for you. I can't imagine a child so sick with no answers as to what's wrong. Kyla, glad you got an evening out but poor baby! Ben fell in the tub once and hit his chin on the edge and bit his tongue. It bled like crazy and really hurt, but the bleeding did stop pretty quick. AFM, Ben is sick and I will be taking him into the doctor today. Last night he had another pee accident just as we put him in bed. He said suddenly that he had to go pee and when I took him into the bathroom his pjs were already soaked. He peed, went back to bed and around 10ish he started whimpering. I went in and the smell of diarrhea hit me. Thankfully we had put him in a pull up because he had terrible explosive diarrhea. I laid him on a towel on the floor and it just went everywhere - all over the towel, the carpet, up his back. No more diarrhea so far today, but he has a low grade fever and also a terribly puffy face (he gets brutal sinus swelling when he gets sick) and runny nose. Argh. I am starting to worry about urinary reflux again. Combined with his foreskin problem I think reflux could be responsible for this ongoing incontinence issue. Like, he was awesome from the day he was potty trained. NEVER had an accident, never wet the bed. Now I would say he's having at least 10 accidents a week. The doctor thought that maybe he was just so into whatever he was doing he didn't want to pee and would just hold it until he wet his pants, but now he's not able to make it home in the car, he's having accidents right after going pee at bedtime, etc. I think we will need a referral to Claire's urologist. He will be able to address the wetting and the foreskin problems.

    Ugh found out last night that his $100 pair of running shoes were in there too. Back to school shopping just got way more expensive. We are leaving tomorrow to visit my son in Tucson so am now having to scramble to find him some clothes to wear before we go.
