it's Grady, but I figured that's who you meant
hehe, sorry! i have had 2 glasses of wine. lol
so what do you do when your ex is over with the kids? do you talk to him or ignore him and wait for him to go away. DD1's dad was always terrible about spending time with her when she was little. he always had better things to do (aka...drink with his buddies!)
I try to go get stuff done and hang out in other rooms, but inevitably the kids come to me and he is horrible at actually watching them, so I usually then end up in the same room, trying to get him to spend time w/ them. *sigh*
he tends to just sit and watch tv and let them do whatever. he really hasn't changed.
and for example, he is supposed to just come over at 6 pm on wed nights (b/c that's his night), but tonight he txted me and said 1st it would be 6:45 when he got here, then another txt said 7. and I guarantee it will be even later than that when he actually shows up.
it's strange, the kids are very wary about him. it's like they know . . .
maybe they are just picking up on my moods around him? idk.
but they totally love my bf! lucas laughs when he sees him and lets him pick him up, etc, and lily pretty much climbs all over him and plays. i'm sooo glad they like him!
i'm really nervous that his kids won't like me. he's says they will, but i'm still nervous about meeting them!
Hmmm, where did Christa go?
Sorry to bail on ya. Going to meet DH, will catch back up when get home
Ah, 7:05. only 1hr 5min late. story of my life w/ him.
Had to post 1 more time to make 4100 even
He's gonna miss out on so much.
I'll get you tonight!
We're watching The Princess and the Frog right now. I'm boycotting Dora so that hopefully Lucas will learn some new words.
we watch Thomas here!! lol so far it is the only thing he will stop and give his full attention to. seriously for the whole 15 minutes today he stopped and stared at the tv. except when it showed their faces up close, then he giggled. I like Thomas actually, but he gets into trouble every episode. oh Thomas:rolleyes:
ahhh Veronica how frustrating:(
Christa, have a fun dinner!
I don't like Thomas. Those trains kind of creep me out! Lily will watch it occasionally, but luckily she doesn't seem to love it or anything.
Everyone and their mother wants me to vote for their kid for the Gerber challenge. Does ignoring them make me a bad friend?
I ignore them all. I don't get why all these friends want to be the gerber baby. We haven't bought any of their foods at all.
Is everyone attending to their kids/dinners?
Yep! DH got home before 5pm! Shocking, I know! I tried yet another whole wheat pizza dough recipe (still haven't found one I love) and made chicken and spinach calzones. Washed a load of cloth napkins, bibs, rags, etc. Fed the boys. Discovered Aiden doesn't like watermelon because he hid them all in his seat. :rolleyes: Washed dishes. Folded the laundry. And told DH that he had to make his own lunch for once. lol.
I'm hiding out in my room the rest of the night. I'm hoping he can manage to get the kids in bed w/o my help.
as long as it's not Caillou I am good haha
Jackie, we have food hiding going on over here too
So I have a blocked duct that I've been dealing with since about 4am this morning. I can't get it to go away! Now it's starting to get red. I wanna cry. I don't want mastitis again!!!! I was pretty much bed ridden for 3 days the last time I had it because even with meds I kept a fever the whole time and was shaking.
Oh, and I don't have a doctor here either. I can either go to see the flight doc which means I get to stand in line behind every single active duty person who wants to walk in to be seen (as in they all get to skip ahead of me no matter how long I've been waiting) OR I can go to the emergency room in town. Neither one sounds like a great option alone with a baby. :banghead:
That should be interesting.
oh Jackie that sucks. do you have any medicine left over from last time?
No. They gave me antibiotics and I took them all. I still have a bunch of hospital grade motrin though. I only took like 3 or 4 after my c/s. lol.
Oh no Jackie! I hope it goes away quickly. Are you keeping a hot press on it? Have you tried getting the pump out to get it moving more?
Veronica- sounds like your ex and mine are related! some day he's going to kick himself in the a$$ for being so crappy to his own kids and not taking an interest in them. I have never said a bad thing about my ex to DD1 and I always tell her, he's trying the best he knows how, but now that she's older, she sees it and it's kind of satisfying. Although I ache for her to have to go through it, it's nice to be given the credit I believe I have earned for ALWAYS being there for her, kwim? You'll get it someday too. And it sounds like bf is doing a fantastic job filling the dad role!
Janice- get princess & the frog on dvd, it's awesome!!!!
i heard it was good
Jackie - :bigarmhug: I'm sorry about the blocked duct, hope it gets better soon!
It really is better than good! DS watches it in the van and I love listening to it. We have it DVR'd so he can watch it in the bathroom while I shower and we also have a DVD so he can watch it in the van.
DH wants to know why the green beans he picked 3 days ago are in the fridge still and not canned. I told him I was busy winning stuff. He asked what, so I told him, virtual crowns to prove I talk a lot. He's not impressed. He's stupid!
omg! maybe blockbuster has a previously viewed one i can buy. i doubt he will sit still long enough to watch it all, but maybe it will entertain me
Lucas is in bed now. So wtf has my ex been doing in the living room for the last 10 min while Lily has been in my room w/ me? He's supposed to be watching her. Ugh!
I'm here! I'm even ignoring DH to chat with you
mine wouldn't get it either
Not for him silly, for you
um, inquiring minds want to know. my guess is sleeping on your couch
are you gonna go in there and see what he's doing?
lol i know it was dead quiet and then i posted it and you guys started talking again
He's probably watching TV
see^^^^ even lucas thinks it's funny!
you butted Veronica, now my post doesn't make any sense
