Why am I doing this?

Monday, April 20, 2009

Time just seems to fly by. We had Parents as Teachers tonight. I LOVE my parent educator. She is awesome. I think the thing I like the best is she makes me feel not crazy and it is ok when I fail as a parent...just remember the lesson for next time and move on. It is a little like therapy for me!!

Anyway, our next appointment is two days before Brodie's 1st birthday. My little baby boy will be one in less than two months!! I am not sure where time has went. The second kids are born you always look forward to the next event/milestone. Those first few months are SOOO hard you wish your way right through them. Then all the sudden you look back and say, "Slow down...stop growing up so fast!"

Brodie is crawling, pulling up and walking around things. He is eating some real table food. He is drinking whole milk and formula during the day (I still nurse him first thing in the morning and before bed).

My boys are joy. (Even now that Dillon is throwing MAJOR tantrums.) They are super difficult, but the loves of my life...Dad included!! I love you all!

Monday night after dinner, Jason and I were cleaning up. Dillon decided to go upstairs. He decided to climb the baby gate (I am sorry to say, he has done it a million times) and fell. We ran in and Jason checked him out. Nothing appeared to be wrong. The weird thing was he sat on the couch all night. We were up with him all night and the next day it was swollen! I loaded up the boys and took Dillon to work with me. I finished up a few things and took him over to Urgent Care. They did x-rays, but could not find anything. The doctor was not buying it though cause of the pain and swelling. They sent us to the orthopedic clinic at MU. Long story - short, he has a fractured elbow and is in a full arm cast for 4 weeks! He is doing well with it. My poor little guy!

I am sitting here on a Saturday night, bored out of my mind! Jason is gone to a bike race and the boys are now in bed. I am seriously sitting here twiddling my thumbs. My lovely angels kicked me all day long. Dillon was a wild man and would not listen to me to save his life. Brodie was GRUMPY, which is not like him. I said it earlier and I will say it again, I am not sure how single parents do it. I would die!

So here is to a better day tomorrow...yeah, right - it is suppose to rain. That means we will be cooped up in the house all day!! ;-)
