Q&E Babble

Okay, I give.   I am doing it.   I miss PPWM too much.

I want to babble.   I think you all want to babble.  So let’s babble here and then go back to PPWM when they finally get us fixed.   I know, it’s discouraging now, but I am too optimistic for my own good.   I do think iVillage will get this mess fixed.   One day. 

For those not on FB, Shelly is monitoring Waylon, debating on a trip to Pitt.   He ran a fever all day yesterday and most of the night.   At her last check in, he’s down to 99.   She’s calling the coordinator this morning.

I had my work party last night.   I took a platter of Jalapeno Cheese Grits.   I have never had 6 people ask me for a recipe before.   I heard they were, “on point” and “ready.”  I love it when I bring the most popular dish.   There wasn’t a scrap left.  

Off to get dressed for work.   As of 3:00 today I am done until January 2nd.   And then I can start counting down for my spring break beach trip.

That's okay, Susan, all the cool kids are still sporting their Valentine's Day look.   Even though we all changed them weeks ago.

I breast fed both babies.   I didn't find it to be a hassle at all.    I think I bought one canister of formula for both kids.   That was to thicken up rice cereal.   By the time I was mentally done with breast feeding, and all the stockpile I had in the freezer was gone, it was 12 months for both of them and we moved on to whole milk.

Another thought about the cloth diapers is the laundry.   I would think you can't just throw a poopy cloth diaper in with other clothes.   That's gross.   But maybe that's where the pre-wash Guss talked about comes in.   I really did want to do it for the green factor, but the disposable ones were just too easy.  

Susan, I just noticed that your spring sig shows in your post that I see (as the last post in this trhead) as I write this.   I am sure we will both be hearts when I post though.

I'm lazy right there with ya Gus, I didn't breast feed either of mine.  Didn't even try.  Are you close to Ft Collins?  I saw they had evacuations with forest fires.  I hope everyone is safe.

Wellllll I guess I am with Sandy here on the cloth diaper thing, you have to either prewash them, or put them in a diaper pail with detergent to get some of the pee out of them, and then wash them in warm water. You figure Garrett sleeps thru the night and goes thru 6 diapers a day, so not sleeping thru the night he went thru like 10, so 24 diapers is a good start, but I would suggest more:-) LOL I considered cloth diapering Evey to be green but it just seemed like such a hassle I was like nooo, I have a costco membership and for $35 I can get a box of diapers that last about 6 weeks.  Worth it to me. Are you going to breast feed or formula feed Mel? I was going to breast feed Evey but with her brace that was kinda impossible so I didn't bother trying with Garrett, I am a lazy parent I guess.  Oh and BEST potty training advice I got was to let them go naked or almost naked then they can use the bathroom when they want, worked like a charm, I thought my MIL was crazy when she first told me that, but I guess she was right ;-/

Okay anyways Tracy your ex is a tool. I mean seriously. $25 is too much for him but he can take his gf on trips out of town? What a gem.

I love my daughter but I love when she is at school, my house is so quiet right now. All little dude does is smile and babble..all I have to do is sit by him and he is happy.  I need to get up and go work out but I really don't feel like it, I did Insanity yesterday and my legs HURT.

Alrighty maybe I will find some housework to do, there is enough of it but I am feeling lazy.

I was so angry this morning.   I went to get DS out the door for school.   His genious father failed to send any shoes from his house.   All he had at my house was dress shoes.   He had to wear them or go barefoot.   Guess who buys all the shoes that are sitting over at the toad's house?   You got it.

Then I got an email to the whole softball team saying all their clothing is in but no one will get their orders until the whole amount is paid in full.   DD was on the list of not paid.   I paid $320 for those clothes.   There was one hoodie left off the order I paid for because they didn't have the price verified at that time.   The toad said he'd pay for it.   Generous, huh?   The hoodie turned out to be $25.   He never paid it.   So, I was publically called out for not paying my bills, and she can't get the stuff I already paid $320 for since he owes $25.   I am livid.   Why can't he move to Alaska or something?  

Mel, did you get the plastic pants to go over the cloth diapers?     And yes to the increased amount of laundry you will be doing.   It is going to skyrocket.

Cloth diapers have come a long way Sandy!  They look more like diapers and are waterproof and stain proof.  Nothing like the cloth diapers of yester-year. :)
