DH got the big v yesterday and I'm surprisingly ok with it. I thought I'd walk of the hospital bawling but I was fine. He did promise me that if a couple of years if i still feel strongly about #4 then he'll consider reversing it. I think just knowing that is why I'm ok with it.
Oh, and my mother moved in with us...and she is driving me nuts. I could vent for hours but I won't bore you!
Glad he will consider to reverse it. Good Luck with your mom. if you need to vent.. vent away.
Glad you're feeling ok about it- I know that's been a big stressor for you guys.
Mom moved in? Ooh, stories, please! I love my mom but I think I would go nuts if she moved in with us!
Oh my, Where do I begin???!!!! Firstly we invited her down for the weekend, she's been here a month now. She's a complete slob. She was changing the garbage and put the full bag on the counter, where I prepare food, instead of the floor and it leaked on the counter. I asked her to keep an eye on the babies so I can do the laundry and when I come back she was memorized by the tv and the baby had crawled in the kitchen where she can't see them and they were playing in the dogs dish. But the one that set me over the edge and we had a good blow up about was due to sleeping issues. Brad is STTN (yay) but Kaylee is worst then over (waking every 1-2hrs screaming). So I'd had enough and decided to let her OIC and actually stick to it. So she crying and it was breaking my heart but I knew this is what I needed to do. So I hear mom go in the room so I told mom leave her alone, I'm trying to get her to CIO. what did she do? She went and picked her and told me that's it's wrong to let her cry like that. I was mad. She totally stepped on my toes. And that wasn't the Only time. Shes always parenting Sydney and it drives me crazy. But i think the one thing that is upsetting me the most is that next Friday we are moving to a new house and I was excited because the babies were getting to move into their new house and this is the house my kids are going to grow up and I feel like the specialness is being taken away because she is moving with us. It doesnt feel like our house. It feels like we are sharing it with her.
Anyway, I've gone on long enough and I could go for much longer. I think I needed to vent. I love my mon but she is honestly driving me crazy. Thanks for listening
Oh my gosh! I am staying with MIL for now (vacationing) and today DS#1 threw a huge fit when we had to leave McDonald's (almost had to drag him out.. he weighs 78 lbs cause he's 8 for peet's sake!) even though it was to go look at the city pool for times and cost, etc. City pool is next to a nice play park and when he copped a fit over not getting to go into the pool right that minute and not tomorrow (they are closed) and not Monday cause they are only open 1-4 and gramma has a doc's appointment 2 hours away right smack dab in the middle of that time frame and I'm not taking 3 kids to the pool by myself..... so when he threw THAT fit, she said "well, let's go play at the park." I snapped a little. NO! I am not taking him to the park after two fits like that in a row. I'm not a piece of garbage for him to walk over and get mad at me for something I can't control. I'm not rewarding his poopy behaviour!
I'm so sorry that you can't move without her. I hope that she leaves soon or that your new place has a scream room (a place with padded walls to bounce off of).

Sorry about your mom. I love my parents but sometimes they do things that drive me absolutely batty up the wall.

She got a full time back home and she's moving out but the funny thing is that I will kind of miss her. Although she messy and lazy and drives me a little crazy she was a big help with the babes. I'm alitalia scared to have to do it alone again
