ELLA- I'm so sorry about what they did to you in the assistanship... I would be so mad!!!!! I can't tell you to quit or not, it is up to you. All I can say is that you should focus on the plans you have for yourself and your family. If the Phd is wha tyou really want, then, try to power through it. But if along the way, you've lost enthusiasm and you really can't remember why you are there... then please leave!!!
ERICA- How are things going with Jonah??
CHRISTINE- Fede is down to only one nap. Keep in mind that in our culture, we wake up later and go to bed later. So, Fede wakes up around 9:00, we play and do watever we feel like, have lunch at 1:00, and he is down for hte nap at 13:30 or 14:00. I let him sleep 2 or 3 hours. So, by the time it's 22:00 he is nicvely tired and (usually) goes to bed easily.
AFM-Thanks to all for the comments on the craptastic week. LOL!!! To answer some of your questions:
Phone- I suppose technically we could have tracked it. But cellphone theft is so common in here that i doubt the police would pay any attention. I did get another phone by now, but what bothers me the most is that I lost the entire contact list.
Debt- Luckily this month DH got a bonus at work, so we could pay it. $$$ will be tight the rest of the month, but at least I'm clean with them now. I'm still figuring how to get more jobs so I can make more per month.
Hair- Still ugly, wavy and unruly. My sister donated me her old hair straightner so at least I can look decent whe I go out. LOL!!!!!
Fight- We are better now. We've talked about it some more, and we've even reached the point to make a little joke about it. We do know it was serious, and it shouldn't happen again, tough.
Thyroid- I will be going to an endocrinologyst soon, so this gets all sorted. In the meantime, I think my body is getting rid of it, because my heartrate feels more normal. Altough, perhaps the huge fight might be a sign that my emotions are still a little nuts.
Mari- sorry about the fee!
Katie - Thanks for the insurance info! I know our state has a program for uninsured kids, but not sure about PG mamas. We actually looked into it before we bought our private policy but because we make too much, it was going to be just as expensive for Selin as our private family plan. I'll double check it again though.
Adrienne - FYI, I just sent you a PM. Wanted your thoughts on something related to natural medicine. :-)
Hi everyone! I'm so so sorry I haven't been posting! I told myself I'd keep up with the August thread and now here it is halfway though the month (eeeek!) and this is the firat time I've even checked in! Since there are 85 posts, I don't think I can read them all but I will try to at least keep up from now on!
Girls, I have two questions for you:
1st- Alyssa's post got me thinking about how much a kid of Fede's age should be eating. I think (from reading your answers) that he is eating to little. I'll try to sum up his daily
Mari- That sounds like quite a bit of milk to me. I think I would try to cut back a bit as now at his age milk shouldn't be his main source of nutrition. Other then that it all sounds good.
Teddy will now eat a really good amount for example a breakfast for him is often about 1-2 scrambled eggs,some fruit, and a piece of toast, BUT only if I make sure to try to only offer him food at meal times and two snacks. Letting him graze all the time led him to eat really poorly and be quite picky but it doesn't sound like that is the case with Fede.
Plus you know if they look healthy you have to be doing something right:)
RE: Food - At 7 years Ray is still hit or miss with food.
