battlefield update

Posted: 04/10/2009 in life

ahh yes Chase is 4 months tomorrow, he’s cute, laughy, happy, smiley and still not sleeping. yay me. I told him he is no longer my favorite son and will never be as long as he continues to interrupt my sleep  ha ha.

I’m busy, its tax season so I have been working a lot. the brother of a 22 year long friend committed suicide last weekend. depression and/or med mixing (due to incompetant dr’s and pharmacists) may be to blame. he had a 13 year olf daughter. This guy was the happiest most stable guy I knew, he was a big brother to me for 2 decades and I am still dumbfounded.

Babseball season started, for Anders which means busy again. I suppose I had better get used to it with 2 boys right. never a dull moment. Chase has been eating 1st food for a month now. F the Dr.’s they say wait, that kid was hungry and is much happier now. Dr.’s with no kids giving a veteran mom orders, indeed!

Love and miss you all…be on this weekend as I have some time alone. here’s Chase: enjoy!0407090732_00010328091705a

    Such a cutie!!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by again. Actually a couple weeks ago I drove across town TWICE during the same trip without strapping LG in. I am so lucky we didn’t wreck he would have flown right out the front window. Yep, I’m a great mom. My kid will be lucky to make it to adulthood.

    well Anders is 8 and I must have done dangerous horrible forgettful things with regard to him everyday…and I swear he’s fine (he’s odd but fine). Like I said parenting really is trial and error even supermom has a brainfart day or several. You find me one Mom who didn’t do that throughout their kids lives esp the first kid.

    I actually added a reminder alarm to my cell phone reminding me to pick Anders up from scholl Tues and Thurs. why? Cause I left him twice and didn’t realize til it was like 20 to 30 mins after school let out! yeah horrible! I’m literally a 3 min walk down the street, but they will not let anyone in 2nd grade leave without a parent or parents permission. I have since sent a note with at least 7 names of people who can get him for me…

    Craziness doesn’t even begin to describe all we do and have to remember on a daily basis, for Christ sakes we have to remind our husbands/boyfriends of their obligations their own side of the family’s obligations, kids obligations, our obligations, still have dinner ready and try to look cute doing it wearing strained peas, spit up, mismatched socks having not showered in 2 days! give yourself a break sweety! laugh it off and move on! (i know I know, take my own advice right??)

    I’m so sorry to hear about your friend’s brother. That’s so sad. As for Chase, he’s adorable. And I hear you on the whole feeling like a bad mom thing.. Last night Skyler screamed for hours and I was so exhausted I just gave him my boob and tried to go back to sleep, but he kept crying like all night long and I didn’t know what the problem was but I couldn’t seem to wake up enough to do little more than change a diaper. So finally I get up in the morning, go to feed him and notice 3 giant black and blue hickeys surrounding my nipple. I was starving him all night because he didn’t have the nipple in his mouth. At least that explained why feeding him was so painful. I thought I had thrush again.. lol.. ah I’m an idiot sometimes..

    So sorry to hear about your friend’s brother. That is so heartbreaking and my heart goes out to his daughter and family…and you of course too.

    I am not raising two boys, but I am a part time nanny to two of them and it’s HARD. There’s never a moment to take a break, much less to pee! So I have a new found respect for you and mothers of multiple children. It’s rough and “they” don’t tell you what it’s going to be like. Mistakes will be made and it’s okay.

    Love you and miss you and I wish it was us “meeting” last week.

    Happy Easter, Sweetie!

    So sorry about the passing of your friend’s brother. I’ll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. My really good friend growing up committed suicide when we were 18 – it totally changes everything. Not that it was completely the same as what you described, but needless to say any young life passing is so tragic. your little one is so sweet! He is so adorable and I can’t believe he’s 4 months!
