I am almost confident enough to call it, I think I may have a child who STTN. He did it again, from about 8:30 to just before six. There is no point me even bothering to try and put him down earlier, even yesterday he didn't nap so was tired and when I tried earlier because he was acting tired it was a no go, eight thirty he was out in about 10 minutes
Yay Wendy, that is awesome that Ronin is STTN! WTG Ronin!
It only took nearly 26 months, but he finally did it.
You know what 's awesome? Spending all night preparing for a hearing, and then as you are ironing your shirt, the court calls and tells you it's going to be rescheduled for two weeks later. Seriously. It was canceled about fifteen minutes before I had to leave to go to it. I spoke with the other attorney, and he was already at the courthouse when he got the call. So frustrating!
I'm trying to bribe Rowan to poop on the potty, but it isn't working. She always knows when she needs to go, since she begs for a clean diaper to poop in, and she flips out if anything is in the way of her private little corner that she likes to crouch in. Yesterday, mid-poop, she announced that she needed a cage, then brought a stool over to block the entrance to her corner (the corner, by the way, is behind a chair and right next to the couch, where there is a lamp she likes to hold for leverage).
Wendy, congrats on getting Ronin to STTN!!!!!!
Ack! Sara! You need the book we're using! She has answers for all of that. As awful as it sounds, most of that is actually awesome--she's so close, you just have to help her get that final piece. Have you put her potty in that corner? No go?
That court business sounds INSANELY frustrating.
Congrats on Ronin STTN, Wendy! That's huge!
Sara, Argh. How can they cancel that **** on you like that? I hope you still get paid if it was the client's fault. I know you've probably tried putting her potty in her poop corner but have you tried putting her in the bathroom with the potty when she makes it known she wants to poop? When Teagan poops, she requires complete privacy. She sits on the big potty in the bathroom, asks for reading material, and then tells us to GO AWAY. She takes a good 20 minutes in there ... which is weird because she can poop in 30 seconds flat in her poop corner at school. I don't know what her problem is at school lately. We're trying! Hopefully the long weekend will knock something into place.
I spent all day writing a fellowship proposal instead of studying. I better get this damn thing, seriously. Oh well. Off to pick up the monster! I sure hope she didn't poop at school.
I am destined to NEVER get another picture of my kids with Santa. I think I may just give up. I tried 3 times with Lyla last year and she lost her mind every time. I just went and thought it was going to work but as soon as the kids were on Santa's knee the both went nuts and started bawling! It makes me sad that I can't have a cute Santa picture.
Apparently, the judge is out sick today. I don't know why they didn't notify us earlier this morning though.

Anna, I think pics of kids crying on Santa's lap are cute.
Santa pictures are overrated. ;) Aiden is intimidated by the fake blow up Santa at Lowe's, so I'm not so sure how real Santa will go. There's a free one coming Dec 3rd to the base that I want him to go to. Maybe it'll be our practice Santa before I spend money on the mall one. And if he freaks out, maybe I'll just have a Zoe with Santa picture and move on with life.
Erin, I can't believe that T wants privacy and reading material!! And stays in there so long!! :lol:
Anna, I am sure Simon will melt down at Santa again this year too. Makes me sad because I want a good picture!!! At least the baby wont mind! :lol:
YAY that Ronin is sttn!!!! I'd be a wreck if Simon wasnt!!!
Simon always has his places he goes off to poop in private, but doesnt seem to care if you come in the room. But he always and I mean ALWAYS poops when we play upstairs in his room. Even if he just went, he'll force out a turd I swear!!
So I was so disappointed at my chiropractor today. I started seeing her over the man I used to see to see if she could help more with the SPD, which she has, since she gets "all in there" which I cannot blame that male chiro for not doing. Hello lawsuit?!?! :lol: But anyways I was telling her about how my OB was talking about inducing at 38 weeks and how I think it's not needed if she is thinking it's due to baby's size, etc. And she was agreeing with the OB!! "well if the baby is big they are ready to come out!!" Reallly! OMG!!! I told her the scans are so not accurate and they were off by a pound with Simon. And then she started talking about a csection like that would be no big deal, etc. WTF?!?! I'm thinking of going back to the male chiro I used to see since he was very for natural/noninduced births. He just wouldnt get all up in my crotch! :lol: Which at this point I think does nothing. It's my other side that is tight anyways and not in the pelvis but hip which had can work on.
Sorry for the mini rant. How do I explain to him why he hasnt seen me the entire pregn though?!?!?
