I have been know to pass on news that I find offensive or relates to me somehow someway.....But this one takes the cake.......How could they (the manufactor) do that to our impressionable children....Are they absolutely insane........I hope that the person who is trying to get this stuff banned in oklahoma can and will succeed.........I know not everyone shares my opinions on this but to me its just asking for trouble.......I can just imagine one of my kids saying they drank cocaine and then someone offering them cocaine for reals............UGH............AS if as a parent we don't have enough on our plates when it comes to raising our children right........

Alyssa

We had Alyssa's IEP meeting today......She is doing wonderful in school.....She has 5 A's and a B........They are very pleased with her progress as well as I am.......They are trying to dc her ot services and said that her teacher doesn't have any concerns at this time.......According to the teacher they never talked to her.......UGH.........I just got a phone call from her therapist who is fixing to meet with her to find out what is going on.....

she has been complaining of a sore throat since last night and wouldn't you know it she shared it with her momma, UGH.....I got a call from the school earlier saying that she was complaining that her throat hurt again and was crying.......I asked them to give her some motrin and to let me know if it worked.....I haven't heard back but I called to check on her and they won't transfer me to the teacher hopefully she is doing better.......If she isn't any better tomorrow morning she is staying home......I will deal with the aftermath.......She is trying to not miss a day of school because they reward the kids with a movie every month for perfect attendance.............She has been doing awesome.........I have noticed as long as she has a goal she seems to do really well with achieveing it.........She has a goal right now to get all As and she is pretty darn close to achieveing that goal..........HUM now to find something to reward those good grades........Had to run and pick her up from school........She looks worse now then she did this morning........And she is awfully quiet, right now she is making herself a cup of tea to help with her throat.....kids, kids, kids

Joshua's first birthday party






Joshua had his first birthday party today.........He was invited to the skating rink by one of his classmates who turned 5........It was awesome and Joshua loved it.......I'm sorry the quality of the video isn't good but I used my cell phone to record it.....I also added some pics of a little girl who he seems to be joined at the hip with.....

Me

a me post, LOL..........We haven't had one of those yet.........but why do women suffer from insomina when they are in the 3rd trimester.........I am uncomfortable......It doesn't help that I have another cold......My head fills like it is full.........(thanks sherri, guess I didn't realize it was that bad yet) I have taken benedryl but the effects of it are sleepiness........OK so I need that........I'm also having bh's but they seem to be less and less......#1 I increased fluids, thought that maybe I was getting myself to dehydrated and well I don't think that is the cause anymore #2 I started taking benedryl on a friend's recommendation (she has had numerous early deliveries and lots of kids to boot, LOVE Ya) and #3 I went and bought the mag citrate(spl) that she also recommended for it but with the benedryl slowing them down and me increasing my fluids, I haven't started taking them yet......but have them if I need to......Now I need to buy some tylenol cold and sinus nighttime so I can get some sleep......UGH maybe I should go to bed and lay down and toss and turn and keep Kent awake.......Oh wait nothing can keep him awake even our 3 rowdy kids running through the house with me hollaring at them..........

Did anyone see wifeswap tonight.......I usually don't watch the show but since channel 6 did their complete swap to digital tv we are having a hard time getting a signal on the digital box.........This lady on there had 9 kids.......Her house seemed to run so smooth.....Quiet, not rowdy and the kids helped around the house without an issue of it........Now seriously can it be that quiet.......I have 3 at home and at times it seems the noise is deafening.........but then again when they are asleep the quietness is deafening even with the tv or the radio on......

Baby boy names

We have finally settled on a name or at least we have for the time being........His name will be Jace Andrew Lane Loving.......I'm excited to say the least........Finally something is prepared for him.......nothing else is.......Its not like we don't have a bassinet, crib, swings, carseat (though mommy wants a new one) clothes.......I don't feel like rearranging my room to set up the bassinet in there (I need to) guess the more kids you have the less you feel that you need to prepare for them....

The colds have found their way back into the house.......I'm sick again as well as Austin has a runny nose......UGH.....its not as if I didn't get really sick and put in the hospital in december........There is nothing I can really take........I have taken some benedryl but we all know benedryl makes you tired so I try not to take it unless absolutely needed.......

Alyssa

Has a sensory processing disorder.........Normally this is not a problem and the teachers all work around it.........However today I got a phone call from the school because Alyssa wouldn't do her work and when talked to by the assistant principal........she had a major meltdown.......hence the mood stablizer she is on doesn't appear to be working, doesn't appear to be causing any issues either though.......But the teachers are not recognizing the signs of an impending meltdown or an overload.......To remove her from the situation before it happens......UGH......Why can they not read her IEP and implement it.......Alyssa does not know her limits, we are working on them........Is it to much to ask that 3/4 of the way through the school year that they know what can set her off, what triggers it and how to prevent them from happening...........I did go and meet with her and the principal...........Got her settled down.......Left her at school to finish out the day.........Now she is getting herself into trouble at home to because she has had so much overload today........UGH.......WHY can't they prevent it.......

Having issues with the isp so I had better get off of here and quit blogging while I still have a chance to post it....LOL

Tuesday

Even though I am posting wednesday morning.......I am offically in my 3rd trimester.......My feet are starting to swell.....I'm trying to stay off of them as much as possible but with 3 kids at home, a dh who had surgery almost 2 wks ago and is suffering from cellulitis its nearly impossible......I need to clean house tomorrow and do some laundry.......I had it mostly caught up over the weekend that was until Alyssa decided she was going to bring her dirty laundry out of her room........Hahaha I bet half of it isn't even dirty..........She irratates me to no get end about that....I can't seem to get her to do anything with her room, I have tried taking away her tv, her bike, threatening to burn it (we are under a burn ban, so can't) bag it up and haul it off nothing seems to phase her......Shoot I can't get her to do anything to help me out in the rest of the house either.....I need to tackle the boys room sometime this week while Joshua is at school and go through the toy boxes and get rid of a bunch of toys that he doesn't play with nor Austin and make a trip to the giveaway place before he gets home from school.......Wish me luck........I am going to start a to do list on here or what some might call a housework game, maybe it will get me caught up enough that staying caught up won't be so much of a hassle........

President's Day

Today has actually turned out to be a good day.....And will probably even get better......but I think that I would be even better if I go back to bed for awhile........that is if I can quit sneezing long enough to relax........

I have my last ob appt today....And I have already talked to her today on the phone....it will be great.........She has finally gotten me into another hospital but with the same specialisit........Apparently being pg with diabeties is high risk........and now no one wants to deliver me.......I hate this but its ok as long as I don't have to go to the other hospital that she thought I wanted to go to.........Its ok to do a consult there, just not spend anytime in the hospital there........

My kids have school today unlike many schools but they didn't have school on friday...........when most of the other schools did........diaper duty is calling me.......will update again after my dr's appt

Thursday pt duex




The kids got to ride Shadow today, they had so much fun....here are pics...

Friday the 13th











Yesterday we spent the day gone all day long......It was crazy......First we got a phone call from Kent's surgeon who said that when they did a culture on the infection he had, it had started growing something and that they needed him in yesterday at 10 am.......The kids were out of school because of PT conferences......So we get the kids up and manage to get out the door shortly after 9, mind you we should have left shortly before 9 because we needed to go to the post office and stop at the gas station.....So we were running late.....We stopped for gas in Wagoner and it was 10 am.....Luckily Wagoner is only 15 mins from there so we called them and let them know that we were running behind..UGH......We get there, I drop Kent off and let him go to the drs appt by himself and I take the kids to the park........The following are pics that I took while we were over there....They had so much fun especially Austin, plus they all got to feed the geese and ducks.... His appt took over 2 hrs to complete.......As you can tell the kids had so much fun......It was freezing cold out side....It was suppose to have the sun shining and be about 60 outside...........UM nope the weather man got it wrong again, It was cloudy and windy with the temps in the 40s but of course felt a lot colder than that with that darn north wind going......Spring needs to hurry up and get here.....I'm tired of winter already.........

After his appt we went to see a friend and then we went and checked on my bff.....I haven't seen her or hardly talked to her since everything happened.........She has lost a lot of weight and is stressing about everything......I'm so worried about her......She said she isn't sleeping and she isn't eating.........Then yesterday they had his court hearing, I guess it was a bond hearing........They charged him with one count.....Can you believe that.........Its feloniously pointing a firearm.......which carries 1-5 yrs........They set his bond at 50,000........Then he had the nerve to tell the judge that she would come bond him out.......Now that said, she has her taxes back which is a little more than that but she said if she did that she would be broke and has no way of getting away from him........She says he has got to be nuts if he thinks she is going to bail him out............I hope she stays in that frame of mind and doesn't bail him out.........But I also know that it is part of the signs of being a batter woman.......I did get to spend time with her 10 yr old daughter.........She asked if she could come stay with me again.........she doesn't handle chaos at all........Poor girl.........So that is my friday the 13th in a nutshell, LOL.......

Joshua

Joshua has learned how to ride his bike.......WOOHOO he has been hollaring for his training wheels to be put back on but he seriously doesn't need them......We just need to work with him and he is also going to need a bigger bike so that is what I have decided to get him for his birthday......Now if only I could decide what to get Austin for his 3rd birthday, LOL.......I didn't think to grab my camera to document it but tomorrow afternoon I am sure we will be outside again and I'm almost positive that he will be riding that bike again, LOL.....

Parent teacher conferences

Today was the kids' p-t conferences....I remember when I was in school I use to dread these things.....But I have come to love going to the school and talking to the kids' teachers....

First I met with Joshua's teacher who is on maternity leave, she will be back March 9th, When Joshua first started school, he didn't recognize most of his letters, he could sing them......And while he was home I didn't think about trying to make him recognize them......But he has come a long, LONG ways and is doing awesome......We still need to work on drawing and recognizing a rectangle..........He has to know that before going on to kindergarten........Basically his teacher started with a clean slate wiht him and is impressed with all that he has accomplished, wtg Joshua.........

On to Alyssa......First I met with her mainstream teacher who has been having issues with her and her attitude and not doing what she has been asked to do......HUM sound familiar.........But regardless of that something is working........She has brought her math grade up from a D in december to a B midway through the 3rd 9wks......the rest of her grades are all A's........I'm so proud of her........She is doing awesome....However she is still having issues with her routine being interupted and dealing with large amounts of kids around her........Her special ed teacher says she does awesome in her class........I can not fathom pulling her out of her mainstream class at all but I considering she has never had under a B in that class I wonder just what all we need to address come next wk when we have her IEP meeting.....I am going to have them do an IEP for behaviors.......I had the meeting scheduled for thursday but after I got home I remembered Kent had a dr's appt for the ENT to schedule for his tonsils to come out..........He suffered through a bad bought of tonsilitis and strep a mth or so ago........And had 2 different antibotics before he got over them and then they still haven't gone down much.......So I am rescheduleing my appt because it is so hard to reschedule his.......No big deal I will just call Ms. Jones in the morning and let her know.........

Update to thursday's post

He has been caught.....The bad news is once again he is going to get off with a slap on the wrist.....UGH......She is moving back to her hometown as her uncle is going to sell her a trailer......Its for the best but I also am concerned what will happen when he gets out...Won't take much for him to get out as its just a misdomeanor charge........

thursday

Well no news is good news right...........They still havne't found him.....I have this feeling he is no longer in the area.....usually I am right about this......he works in the oilfield so I am sure he is jumping from one to another and knows how to get around at night when no one will see him....he will probably lie low durning the day...Seriously they need to start thinking like him not like they have been trained to do........But I did find her a trailer down the road from me for $300/mth.........If she takes it we can be there in less than 5 mins but he doesn't know the area very well.........He knows the county that the live in like the back of his hand because he grew up there.......And has lived there his whole life.......

The craziness of my life

Today has become more and more crazy.....My bff was involved in a domestic dispute today.....Her SO is on the run......he shot a hole in the floor of thier trailer house, tried to break into the school where her kids go to school at.....Why do men think that they have to do this........Years ago I was involved in that type of relationship and managed to break away.....My bff however seems to leave one abuser for another one who ends up being worse then the previous one.........All I can do is offer her an ear to bend and a shoulder to cry on........Domestic abuse is a bad problem here and else where.......Women are dying every day at the hands of someone that claims to love them........There are so many forms of abuse, besides physical, there is mental and emotional abuse........I knew that he was mentally abusive but didn't realize he was willing to go to this extreme....She is in a safe place right now but for how long we will not know until he is captured......There are innocent children involved.......

Baby Boy names

Ya know I have never had this much trouble finding a name for one of my boys………….Joshua was named by the time I was 15 wks pg…….I knew he was a boy……With Austin he was named when I was 31wks just after we found out he was boy…..and now this lo is a boy to and he doesn’t have a name and ya know I have known since I was 17wks almost 18 wks pg that it was more than likely a boy but I didn’t want to believe it………Why oh why do they have to be so hard to name…….We had tossed around Justice, Jarrod, Jayson, Jace, Nicholas, Jaythan and I know we have tossed around more than that…….Now its just finding something that we both can agree on……..I am leaning towards Justice Andrew or Jayson Andrew, maybe even Jace Andrew……….Yep I have a thing with Andrew…….Joshua and Austin both have family names and Andrew is another family name……..Its Joshua Aaron Lee~Aaron is after my great-grandfather and little brother, Lee is after my dad and Kent’s dad and then later on we found out Joshua was a family name from way back when on Kent’s side…….Austin James Levi~James is after my grandfather both maternal and paternal also dh’s brother…….Levi was as close as I could get to Lee without naming him Lee again……….Clayton Matthew as named after a friend from high school……..So suggestions would be great if there is any out there…..LOL
It has been a crazy couple of days around here…….Kent had surgery last thursday and now it is infected and draining…..Then Joshua ended up being home by himself for an hour and a half when he was suppose to go to afterschool care…………….And no one thought anything about him not being where he was suppose to………..But everything is worked out and he is safe and sound………..Then yesterday he brought me home his first valentine that he has made for me…..here is a picture of him holding it……..




Ignore my dirty kitchen……….It says Valentine, Valentine I make two and give them both to you…….Then he also made a blueberry muffin that says it has 4 blueberries………Its so cute……..I love this stage of learning, I also love this age where boys still worship their momma……I know in a few years that he won’t/act feel the same way……

New to blogger

I have another blog but am having issues with it so I am trying out this one as well........We will see how it goes.
