Sarah, what a sweet conversation! He knows his stuff. :) Our homeschool meeting last night was so fun and SO exciting! I can't wait to get started.

Christine, I'm really sorry about the job. Hang in there, friend.

Emmy, we like our 3 year spacing. Fletcher turned 3 one month after Jonah was born, and Charlotte was born about three weeks before Jonah turned three. That was our preferred spacing to begin with, and it worked out. My sister and I are three years apart, and I thought it was ideal. HOWEVER, I can totally imagine a 2 year gap. If we planned a 4th baby, I think I would even choose a slightly closer spacing only because I wonder if the jealousy factor might be a little less. Fletcher wasn't jealous at all (or didn't show it!), but Jonah is still struggling.

Let me apologize in advance for being a Debbie Downer...

Well my crappy week continues. I found out today that I did not get the teaching position I interviewed for two weeks ago. They gave it to someone who was already teaching 4th grade at another school. I was so shocked and my heart just sunk. I mean I had a referral from the asst. principal and my interview couldn't have gone better. The principal even asked me during my interview how my current principal would take the news of my leaving so it's like he all but offered me the job. And then to tour me around the school afterwards? I really wish they wouldn't get candidates hopes up like that.

So naturally I'm angry and upset but trying to stay positive that something better is out there for me. I do believe everything happens for a reason, it's just hard to see that right now. It would have been so awesome to be so close to home, but I guess I should just be grateful I even have a job in my desired field right now.

Thanks for listening ladies. :smileysad:

Sandy,
I would have my band melted down into a new band that would go with your mom's ring. Then I would do as Ruby suggested and have the engagement ring made into a pendant or just wear the ring on a chain (after the prongs are secured). I'm really sentimental about my wedding jewelry!

Sandy,

You could have the stones taken out and reset into a pendant or another ring. Thats what I would do. Good luck!!

Sandy- I am feeling much better, I am pretty sure that the yeast infection has cleared up. Hopefully that is the last one that I have for a while (And you too!)

Andi- Poor Juliette. I can't think of anything that you haven't already tried that would help. Did you end up trying the Pedialyte Pops?

Ruby- I hope that everything works out for you. It all sounds very frustrating.

Liz- It is a lot of fun around here. Haha, Lucas does that too with the diaper rash cream, over even Tylenol.

Erica- What an awful week you had. I hope this week goes much, much better for you.

Christine- That is so exciting that you be graduating with your Masters next week. You must be so proud!

AFM- We went a looked at a few vans the other day. One we liked, but they weren't willing to give us what we wanted for our trade in ( Our 2005 Pathfinder) we are in no hurry though. I am sure the right vehicle will come along. Let's just hope it will before November.

It is snowing out today. It's a rainy, snowy, slushy mix. It really hasn't stuck a whole lot to the ground, but I just think that it is crazy that it is almost May and snowing.

Christine- I know how you feel. Sometimes it would be better not to plan TTC and just get PG but I know you said also it would be better if you have a spring baby. If all goes well we will be TTC in July also. I just hope I can get this stupid yeast infection and bacterial infection to go away. No chance this month since we only DTD twice this whole month with the stupid infections. The medicine they gave me for the bacterial infection one of the side effects is a yeast infection so that is why I got another one. I took the last pill today for the second yeast infection and there is still some there but not as much so I'm thinking it's going away. She gave me one more prescription in case I need it and if it's still there to call back. Not sure why it's being so stubborn, the doctor's office said sometimes that just happens. But I've been doing everything I can to make sure to prevent it in the future.

My mom is here until Wednesday afternoon. I took today off work. Sometimes I wish I could just stay at home but at other times like trying to get him to nap, I'm happy I do work. I think work would be better for me if I didn't dislike my boss so much. Things used to be so much better when I started 4 years ago and then my old boss left right before I had David, and ever since things have gone downhill. But I like working at home and I don't know what else I would do so for now I'm staying. Maybe if DH gets a better job I could stay at home but until that happens, I'm going to be working even after we have #2.

For those who have kids who get constipated, David still gets constipated sometimes and yesterday I noticed his butt was red and I put some diaper cream on it and it was fine today. His issue is that he will go but it's like little rocks so I have been giving or have the sitter give prunes every few days if he hadn't gone in a few and it seems to help.
