DS has definitly followed the curve. Once his weight was below the 5% but it was above the 10% at his next appointment so the doctor wasn't worried. He eats well but takes after my mom's side of the family, tall and slender.View Thread
What my cousin's pedi advised was to have him go potty in the potty chair if he's using the toilet or use the toilet if he's using the potty chair. Kids will associate whichever they use with the pain and won't go. Once they start going again regularly, they can go back to whichever one they were using.View Thread
Busy but mostly good. My weekend started Thursday since I was off work Friday and that wasn't good as I had to buy a battery for my car since the old one died.
Friday was good. Took DD to pre-school and then waited for DS' bus. After his bus came, I took a nap until DH got home. I had to pick up DS at 1:30p since he had a therapy appointment at 2p.
Saturday was family day. My SIL who lives with us, invited her kids over for BBQ (hot dogs & hamburgers) and my step-daughter and two of her three kids came as well. It was fun visiting and holding my step-grandson since it was the first time I'd seen him since he was born in November. After my SIL left to take my step-daughter and kids home, DS started crying because he wanted her son to stay and sleep with him. He cried for about a half hour.
Sunday I volunteered for a 10 mile run and had to be there at 6a to help with packet pick-up. I got home around 8:30a to find DH hadn't changed DD's diaper or fed the kids so guess who had to do both and make breakfast for DH and me? Went to Costco with DD and then made her lunch and put her down for a nap. DS had gone with grandma and grandpa to buy sandals. Kids played outside most of the day. DH left to go out of town for work around 6p. Kids got on my nerves around 7:15 so both went to bed.View Thread
Per his IEP, DS was supposed to be receiveing physical therapy (PT) once a week. I found out he was not recieving it and the company that was providing it before no longer contracted with the district. I should have been notified but if they left a phone message, DH is notorious for not passing along messages and I don't recall getting anything in the mail.
I contacted the district and was told they were referring me to another company and should hear something soon. I got a phone call this morning from the principal at his school saying someone was trying to sign him out for PT and asking if that was okay. I hadn't received any notification from the company that his therapy was starting. I called the company and they didn't even have a physical therapist assigned to him in their files. They apologized and said they would get more information to me later today.
I'm glad he's getting the therapy he's supposed to be getting but would have liked some sort of prior notification.View Thread
We always go to my parents' house for Easter and she always has baskets for the kids with candy and one toy. I'm 44 and DH is 50 and she still makes us baskets, mostly just gift bags with candy. My brother and sis-in-law always get there before us and their kids have already done the egg hunt by the time we get there. My niece and nephew will "hide" the plastic eggs for my kids and "help" them find them. This year, DS found an egg after everyone had gone in the house thinking they were all found.View Thread
I don't wear yoga pants but have worn sweats to the store but only if it's cold out. I've worn sweats to church a few times but only because I was somplace cold for several hours and didn't have time to go home and change first (leaving work at 5p and mass starts at 5:30p).View Thread
Poor DS. He had a bloody nose Saturday and Sunday night. Nothing like seeing the lower half of your kid's face covered in blood. At least last night he was in the bath when it happened but DD thought she caused it and kept crying and saying she didn't mean to. I reassured her she didn't do it, it just happens.
Both times I just had him lie on the bed watching cartoons for 30 minutes before I let him get up and it seemed to work.View Thread
I wanted to tell DH to leave. Wasn't mad at him or anything but he's been working out-of-town Sunday night thru Thursday night the past two weeks so he hasn't been home. He's worked closer to home the past two nights so has been able to come home but I had my personal schedule and routine going while he was gone and he messed it up by being home.
Really love eating at my parents' twice a week and was glad when DH started working out-of-town because I knew that would happen.View Thread
