Between this horrific sore throat that crept up on me within the past 5 hours and my brain refusing to shut off…along with baby #2 tickling my ribs, it is impossible to sleep tonight. It’s approximately 11 pm Sunday night and I am up thinking about blogging.

As for the title of this post…poop…this is what I thought I would share with you. Literally.

Yesterday, we had a fun day at my parents house. Hay got to go in the spa with my dad and sisters and wore herself out after only two hours.

She napped on the way home and as well as in her room when we finally got home (it was a 46 minute drive…I hate the drive to my parents) Anyways, we thought it would be a great idea to nap as well. So we nap for an hour or so and then we wake up to her playing in her room. I tell G that I’m not ready to get up yet…I needed just 20 more minutes. He said “Cool. No problem.” I quickly drift back to sleep until I hear G yelling “No, No No!” and then I hear the back door open and slam shut. My mind is still half asleep as I try to piece together a senario…then I hear G’s heavy footsteps (I laugh as I type this because he is so freakin loud when he walks down our halls…it’s like he stomps or something hahahha) and then I hear the bath start in Hay’s bathroom. So, I roll out of bed to see what all the excitement is about.

As I opened our bedroom door, I smelled the stench. I knew exactly what had happened. Poop. Hayden was wearing a dress and she had experienced a massive blowout and had decided to play in it. Literally, there was shit everywhere. I started gagging as I walked into the bathroom. I asked G why he didn’t come get me to help. He replied “You asked for 20 minutes so I was going to give you it” UMMMM there is shit everywhere. On her bed rails, her bed sheets, the carpet, her toys…everywhere. You were going to let me sleep? LOL! I guess he gets an “A” for thought but and “F” for effort since it seemed as though he was trying to wake me up with his yelling, door slamming and foot stomping.

Oh, and about the yelling…I asked it what that was all about. He proceeded to tell me that as he was changing her diaper, she decided to grab herself-poop and all. I couldn’t help but laugh and shake my head…and gag. We both found it funny by this point even though I could tell he was so incredibly stressed out.

I made a deal with him, I would clean the room if he cleaned her. He gladly took me up on the offer. He told me if he cleaned the room, I would be having to go in a re-clean it after he threw up in it. Ya. It was that bad. Oh the joy of having kids! :0)

First off, here is a picture of what I look like about 31 weeks pregnant…I think it would be fun to start posting weekly pictures on here so I can look back down the road and see the progression over the last part of the pregnancy.

About two weeks ago, I had an energy spurt one day and I literally cleaned the whole house. It drained me the two days after, but boy was it satisfying. I posted on fb about my cleaning extravaganza and my friend Michelle said “nesting”. I thought replied “no way, I’m way too early still to be nesting..” (being only 28/29 weeks)

However, I think she was absolutely right. Ever since that day, I have been cleaning like a maniac. Literally, to where now I’m like “hmmm there’s not much else to clean”…so now I’m organizing! I can’t believe this is starting so early. I’m ecstatic!! I still have a good 8 weeks to go. WOO HOO! Do you realize how much organizing I can get done in 8 freakinweeks??? I think a trip to Ikea and The Container Store is in need very soon!

I tried to capture Hay cleaning with me today on my camera. I was sweeping the kitchen and she went into the laundry room and brought out the mini dust pan and broom. I about died from cuteness. She still doesn’t quite understand how to use the set, but she put the pan on the floor next to my dirt pile with little rocks…(because we have about a half-acre of just dirt as our backyard) and with her mini broom in her left hand, she picks up the tiny rocks one by one with her right hand and sets them in the dust pan. Once again, I about fell over from how freakin’ cute this was. I really wanted to call G and tell him, but I know with him being a man and honestly just a story wouldn’t really do justice, he would say “haha ok, that’s cute hunny…” which is code for you really called to tell me this? During my really busy day? So, needless to say, I didn’t call him. I saved him the time and myself the unintentional hurt feelings.

The next best thing I thought would be to get my camera out and capture this moment. The camera read “dead battery” Doh. :0( I really need to buy a second battery to have on hand. That and 3 new lenses that I have on my wish list.

Oh, the wish list…this will have to be dedicated to a completely different post. I’ll be sure to do this post next. :0) That will be fun!

So, basically…I didn’t tell G about the cute cleaning move Hay did and I didn’t get pictures. I’m sure she’ll do it again, but it won’t be the same. *sigh*

Well, I’m off to do my one load of laundry with 4 shirts and 4 shorts…lol man I need something to do to keep me busy…

Quality is sucking…I apologize

Back in high school and even college for that matter, I loved my English and writing classes. I really do love to write. I didn’t necessarily love sitting in the classes, as I often missed them, but I enjoyed the fact that they were so easy for me. I would say that I truly sat down and strived for that perfect grade maybe a handful of times-and I would only say that occurred in the college classes.

Can I blame it on laziness? Yep.

I knew I could devote myself for an hour or two and pull something out of my ass and it would be “B” quality work. So, why try harder? That was my attitude. I really regret it now. Particularly because it was habit-forming. I have noticed that 90% of my posts (possibly more) are just pulled out of my booty. I don’t think about it. I just sit and type whatever comes out of my mind. I wonder if I took a day to plan out my posts before I write them, would they be that much better? Probably. They would most likely make more sense and have a better flow about them too. I’m thinking I should start doing this…hmmmmm

Can you tell? This is another post…just like I described. HA! Maybe I’ll start tomorrow.

Happy Thursday! :0)

PS Please keep us in your prayers this morning, I didn’t sleep at all last night. Ugh.


One busy mama!

Between chasing a toddler, trying to find my groove with the house being occupied by two fewer people (meaning less cleaning {yay} but also less help chasing the toddler) and being pregnant, I feel like this week is flying by! This past Memorial weekend, we BBQ-ed and relaxed. definitely what we, as a family needed. I didn’t realize how disconnected G and I had become since his parents had moved in with us 6 months ago. This weekend was all about getting back to us…without us really knowing it. I realized last night that we truly couldn’t be better than where we are now in our relationship. My love tank is currently full and I’m all giddy like when we first started dating again. :0)

Later today I have my doctor appoint which is occurring every two weeks now. Man, the $20 co-pays really start to add up once you think about it. Sure it’s only $40/mnth but I’m only in the doctor’s office for a total of 15 minutes…tops. It’s kinda ridiculous if you think about it. Ugh. Now I’m grumpy and I want to “forget” about my appointment today haha. I could be getting a nice massage for that price when you think about it…

Tomorrow is Hay’s EEG appointment to test if she is prone to having seizures. This will help rule out if her past “twitching” is actually Absence Seizures or if we need to look into other possible reasons. I feel like the diagnosis either way is a negative and I really don’t like thinking or talking about it. You hear of medical issues that kids have, but you never really think it will be your kid or you sitting in the doctor’s office trying to keep it together when the doctor is telling you he thinks your kid is having seizures. I keep reminding myself that there are plenty of moms out there receiving much more devastating news about their babies and I we are still blessed.

So, her appointment entails us keeping her awake late tonight and then waking her up early tomorrow and keeping her awake until we get to the appointment. We are hoping this will be enough to have her fall asleep on me, but I know my daughter and this isn’t going to happen. We will have to give her the hydro-chlorate (I believe) medication to sedate her. The nurse I spoke with on the phone said it’s completely harmless, so that’s reassuring. She will have wires hooked up to her head reading her brainwaves for two hours. I can already tell tomorrow is going to be a hard day… for all of us.

It’s a good thing we have Lake Havasu with some good friends to look forward to this weekend. I think it will be really good to get out of the house and do a mini family vacation.

Where Am I?
