Normally I would love cuddling with him, but for some reason I have a hard time with it, like I just feel so claustrophobic and do t want to be touched any more. Has anyone else felt that way or am I just a terrible ice queen mom?
    When I was BFing full time, yes, I would often get "touched out." I always thought it would be nice to tandem nurse... until I had the second baby, LOL! Tiven was 5yo and she was not patient enough to wait until I was done nursing, and Weston wasn't patient enough when I got home from work to wait for Tiven to get her snuggles first. I would try to find ways for her to get her "touch quota" without driving me bonkers. One thing that worked really well was for her to sit on the floor with my legs wrapped around her shoulders; she would read a book, or she would hold a book up & I could read it to her, or sometimes she would watch something on PBS. She felt like she was being hugged, but it didn't involve my upper body. Another thing that worked was for her to lie down with her head on my leg; I could look her in the eyes, stroke her hair & tickle her ear with my free hand, but I didn't feel smothered. It lasted until Weston was about 4 or 5 months old and eating solids. DH could give him a snack right before I got home, then Tiven could get her snuggles before Weston needed nursing. Good luck!

You can tell him that I know lots of 4 year old boys in night pullups, nothing to be ashamed of. Our family has slow learning bladders for most of our boys. Its hereditary, but causes accidents at night till they are older.
    Fingers crossed it's just a tummy bug, but tell him that plenty of kids need pullups long after they are 4yo. I wish we'd had pullups when I was a kid! Tiven wore them for a long time after she probably didn't *need* them, but she was up in a loft bed and I didn't want to change her bedding any more than I absolutely had to, LOL!

    Kyla - check out the Running Room, they have beginners walk/run program and tons of support, pretty sure they have stuff online. And just a quick bit of trivia, the running room started in Edmonton

    We called pull-ups at night "night-time" underwear, went over better when Robbie was 6. At 8 he is still having accidents but not so often. I did love hearing that he wet the bed 3 times at my MIL's (I really hate that woman).

    I have now had a migraine for a week. Really thinking of going to the ER for a shot but I hate going in with a migraine... yuck.

    Margaret, have you ever considered a bedwetting alarm? We used one with Claire and after one week she was dry overnight every night since. Not one accident. Malem makes great ones and they have fantastic results. I think I read that on average kids were trained to stay dry overnight in 2 weeks.

    Too funny about me peeing the bed last night. LOL

    Stacey, that is a good idea about having him sit on the floor at my feet and "hugging" him with my legs. I think he would go for that, and that would make me feel a lot less claustrophobic.

    Jessica - I get hot too, which is part of the problem. Last night I said "Can I have some space buddy? I'm getting really hot." and he said "Me too, I'm all wet!" (with sweat, gross!!!!)

    Margaret, I hope that you feel better soon!

    Haha, I thought this was so funny (although my FB friends may have already seen this story.) This morning I put Reid in his car seat and then asked T to sit with him while I loaded all of my stuff (purse, pump, laptop, lunch...I carry so much crap with me these days) into my car. I asked him to sing a song for Reid, expecting him to sing a kid's song like "The Farmer in the Dell." He busted out with some Taylor Swift "We are never never never getting back together." I died laughing. I don't even know how he knows that song because we always listen to my iPod in the car and I don't have it, and I can't picture DH jamming out to it in his car either. Hilarious!

    Margaret, why do you have to go to the ER for a shot? Can't your primary care doctor do that? Or don't you have something like urgent care for such non-emergencies-but need-to-see-someone-now things? Hope you're better soon!

    Ha ha Alissa. Ben does the same thing. He just starts singing "We-eeeeeeeeeee are never ever ever....getting back tooogedderrrrrrr." Claire has the Kidz Bop version of that song on her LeapPad and that's where he picked it up. Ever heard the Kidz Bop version of Tik Tok? It is hilarious. Totally clean, and totally hilarious!!! I have the real version on my iphone and the lyrics aren't exactly kid friendly, so when we're in the van and I know there's an 'adult' line of the song coming up I belt out the Kidz Bop lyrics over top of the bad ones. Claire always looks a bit confused.

    No, it is stupid but they send you to the ER. My family doctor could give me a prescription for something stronger but I can't get in to him until next week. I did go to the medicentre (urgent care) and they said if the migraine continued to go in for a shot. I toughed it out but was pretty dehydrated and that made things worse. Usually when I go to the ER for a migraine I need the fluids more then the meds.

    Actually, he has less then 1 accident/month so I thought it was really funny that he wet the bed 3 times in a week. Usually accidents only come when he is sick.

    Robbie has started to ask about song lyrics, his latest was asking what a "midnight toker" was. Sean got to explain that one.

    I hope you are feeling better soon.

    We just got back from my older two having swim lessons. So fun. We started out the day with cooking classes. They made a candy pizza from scratch. Then after lunch were swim lessons. Alyssa swam from one side of the pool to the other. The girls had a wonderful time and it was nice for me to be able to sit and visit with the other mom's. Fun times.
