That looks like a fun place to play! Maybe when Leah nurses less frequently, I'll take Andrew myself to our community one, and we'll see if its similar.

I can't believe how slow Toys R Them is being with your refund! Sheesh! Sometimes places do not comprehend customer service - if you talk to one person, and the message doesn't get relayed correctly, you get stuck. That happened to me with a Gymboree refund - LONG story. Eventually I got store credit but not without a lot of bumps along the way.

Praying for you for both the fundraiser and the babysitting. I think you'll be surprised with the fundraiser. My DH is not very outspoken usually, so the first time he wanted to coordinate Financial Peace University at our church, our pastor didn't really have much faith in him. Well, DH is incredibly gifted with FPU, and he did a great job. As for the babysitting thing, I'm sure the boy will be happy since you have a kid friendly house already. I think that's more important than size - as long as there are toys and things to do.

Today DH and I are going on a dinner date - woo hoo! For Christmas, SIL gave us a gift card to a fancy restaurant and coupons to redeem for free babysitting (She'd babysit for free anyway though). Now that Leah is taking the bottle (again), I feel okay leaving her. I'm really looking forward to it!

I wanted medical clearance just for my own peace of mind.

Now I understand about the medical clearance - that makes sense.

I saw on FB that you went to Red Lobster this weekend - how did that go with the kiddos?

We actually have a pretty small yard. Someday that will be awkward for Andrew as I'm sure he'll want to hit a baseball around or something, but we just don't have it in us to maintain a big yard. We aren't yard people, at least we don't think so!

Sounds like your DH has some kinda silly excuses for not wanting a third baby! I'll keep praying for that situation - its good that you talked about it and are marinating for a bit.

There really isn't anyone local to ask about drs. The closest women to me distance-wise are at church, and they tend to do everything in their area, which is 25 min away. I'd prefer someone closer. I may ask my midwife when I go for my next pap - she is from my suburb and her family still lives in my area, so she might have some good ideas. I'm worried about delaying that decision until March when I go to see her, but then again, I'm too busy and stressed right now to go meet a new dr before then!

We got an update on my aunt - the latest tests show that the cancer has not spread, and now, the drs are recommending radiation in hopes of shrinking the tumor to the point that they can remove it, not the entire leg. So that's good.

This is going to be a busy week. Tuesday, Leah has a pediatrican appt (well visit). DH has a chiro appt at the same time, so hopefully he can get his mom to watch Andrew so I don't have to take him along! Then Thursday I have a dentist appt for a filling (yuck). Sometime this week I have to find time to go to Target because they have nursing pads on sale so I need to stock up. They are showing the "Courageous" movie at church this Friday, but now that I know they don't need help with childcare or anything, I think we will skip it, because it will go past the kids' bedtime.

That's good that dinner went okay. That's cute that Julia gets to touch a lobster if she's good! I'll keep that in mind. Maybe when Leah is on solids, we'll try to venture out to a restaurant again.

I know how you can drive yourself crazy trying to make an important decision like having another baby. I went through it a little and more and more I'm sure we won't.

I hope your dentist apointment went well!

We'll definitely watch Courageous sometime - sometime when I don't have to worry about Leah so much.

So today I had to take Andrew along with Leah for her appt. DH had a chiropractor appointment, and I kept reminding him to ask his mom to watch Andrew, and he kept forgetting to ask. Monday he found out that his mom had to take her brother to court :( and by that time, it was too late to reschedule DH's appt. Andrew did okay. When I was talking to the dr, he kept wanting me to read him a book, but otherwise he did fine. Leah is growing like crazy and everything is fine with her, so that's good.

I asked the dr about Leah's changing routine and the dr didn't seem too worried and not at all surprised that she'd be more demanding when I'm around vs when I'm not. She said lots of times babies don't get into routines until they are on solids. Okay.

Here's a TMI... DH wanted "lovin" today and I almost cried. I'm so tired and stressed with work and its just another thing. There are times that I think DH should just get a job, any old job, just so we can get day care for Andrew and Leah. Then I realize that's stupid and that the best thing for the kids is to be home (for free) with their dad. But when I'm home, its mostly me, and its exhausting. I have to keep telling myself that it will get better, but right now, the pressure at work is a bit overwhelming. I want to talk to DH about it, but I don't want to upset him that he's not pulling in an income. I'm perfectly happy with him being home but he's not fulfilled.
