hey everybody. i posted some of this on fb but my little rant is not really fb friendly... i have a friend whos 3 kids are just heathens. last week she asked me to go to terre haute shopping with her and we went cause we needed to get some stuff too. we are not in the van 5 min before all 3 of her kids are hacking up a lung and snot flying everywhere. while shopping her oldest sneezed right in izzys face. that was tuesday, by friday izzy was cranky and looked like hell. it only got worse from there. now she had bronchitis and a nasty ear infection. you cant even look at her with a total meltdown. i dont take her out when shes sick and if people come over i give them a fair warning. its just common courtesy i think. everytime my daughter has been sick in the last year it has always started with one of her kids giving it to her. i know its easy for things to get passed with kids, thats why you take the steps to try to prevent it right?? thats 2 trips to the dr for meds in about a month.
izzy is finally in a big girl bed. i attempted to take the rail off her crib and i could move it back and forth with one finger. i had bought a toddler bed last summer and now realized its missing 2 very important screws. ended up getting a friends' daughters old bed and izzy loves her dora bed. i think potty training will be what izzy fights me to the death over. didnt care about a binky, slept through the night at 3 months, didnt even care when i switched her a cup. i think i can count on both hands the times she has woke up screaming either over being sick or teeth bugging her. she will not use the potty for anything. feb 20th was her first and only time. ive tried the elmo potty stuff including the cute reward map and stickers. its been in 3 different rooms...nothing. she has started a new thing that if she doesnt get what she wants or if shes in trouble she just throws herself to the ground. not fitting and causing a scene but the middle of parking lots, stores, when we go out to eat. grrrrrr
on a lighter note hubby bought me a new car. his car died about 2 weeks ago so he told me to find a new one. he wanted a truck but i couldnt find anything in our price range that would fit 2 fata**es and a huge carseat. so instead we got an 06 HHR. i fell in love with the rental HHR we had last year. came in $500 less than our limit and it has all the bells and whistles. at least it has a good size trunk area and its shape will hold alot more things than my old car did. so he is now driving my old car which knowing him and the shape of the tranny will be dead itself by years end. things are finally starting to look up around here. hubby finished school and his promotion is now complete. now its time to get izzy in school. hoping she will be potty trained by her birthday and if they have an opening then she can start. i really want to go back to school and do something. i was thinking a therapy assistant. hoping that is doable cause going back to work as a cna is no longer possible with as jacked up as my back is now.
