Sierra - I hope Camden gets to feeling better. If you still think something is hinky, keep pushing.
Wamommy - Your hair looks great! Sorry to hear that your 5 year old wasn't immediately into it. I remember when my mom got contacts instead of glasses when I was around the same age... she just looked weird for a couple of days.
Helena - Hooray for posh camping! It sounds like you had a great time. The evening with your girlfriends sounds fun too.
DH and I had a huge fight on his birthday. He had promised to be home sometime around 10 or a little after. As it approached midnight and I couldn't get a hold of him I sent him a rather snarky text asking if he even cared that he was ditching his family responsibilities. This led to a rather drunk DH coming home and yelling for 3 hours and telling me we were getting a divorce. With that behavior I said do what you want. He also stormed into the house, woke my parents and grandma up, and thought about driving away on his motorcycle.
Well, things have calmed down a little bit. He apologized to me, but is still angry (why?) at my parents and grandma for calling him out as being drunk. His words: "There is a difference between being drunk and being angry. I was angry." Given I could smell tequila from across the room... Then my dad had the audacity to ask DH to help move the new freezer from the barn to the garage. A task DH had volunteered to help with mere days before. Now he is sulking around and muttering about being a good little boy/slave/son-in-law. I just want to smack him!
I have honestly never seen his behavior be this bad. He needs to realize that my family sees him as a son and only wants to help.
Kellen, I'm so sorry about the fight you had with DH That is NO fun, and I hope it gets better. I'm sure it adds to an already tough situation that your parents and grandma are involved as well. I hope he snaps out of it, though... because having a fight is bad enough, but moping around about it afterward doesn't help anything!
Thank you all for your kind words about my hair! I'm trying to do anything to make myself feel better about my looks lately. I've felt SO down as wrinkles start to pop up and the last 8 pounds just don't want to budge. I'm feeling every bit of 34 (and not in a good way).
Good luck with that dragon xx I suffered depression when I was about 20 and was on servant (paroxetine) for a few months. Helped me a lot
I hate rowing with DH..hope it all settles soon Kellen x
Kiara has been spoilt recently. Se had her first baby yogurt the other day..loved it! Ten today was her first finger food - a baby biscuit suitable for 5 months plus. Is hard so she can hold it but goes very mushy once in her mouth. Oh my word, she loved it! When she couldn't quite get it in her mouth and I took it off her to feed her it she cried and screamed like I had stolen it! Hehe. Se is definitely going to be a child who looooves biscuits! It's nice to have something I can give her as a treat already
Dragon, I'm so glad they saw you! I really hope the meds help.
We're dropping the girls off at a family friend's house this afternoon so that DH and I can go out to a nice, quiet lunch. To be honest, it's actually because the kids LOVE this friend and have a blast at her house. The time would be better spent cleaning my house, but oh well. I've already told DH that I'm renting a UHaul and tossing half of our belongings... I'm that sick of clutter!
Dragon - I am glad to hear that your appointment went okay. I hope that the medication provides you with some relief.
Helena - Kiara sounds like quite the firecracker! That is cute that she already loves her treats. I'll have to look for some of those (or something similar) when Teagen gets big enough to start eating that sort of thing.
Wamommy - It feels great to get rid of stuff. We got rid of tons of junk when we moved across country... and I did another clean out when we moved from the house to the RV. I'm glad that you and your DH get to have a little alone time. It is important.
DH and I are back to normal and I told him his attitude recently has stunk and it all just came to ahead. He had a tooth pulled today and is now in bed sleeping. I don't think we'll be making our motorcycle club meeting tonight...
Yesterday Teagen was introduced to cucumber slices. I held them for her, but she chowed down on two of them. Last night's poop was interesting to say the least. Today she gnawed on some cauliflower at lunch. DH is very insistent that if she doesn't like a veggie I am not to force it on her (he will not eat veggies...). So far she has loved all the fresh foods we have tried. She cried when I put them away.
We also got her a miniature wading pool. My mom had gotten her a swim suite a couple of months ago... it was too small so she got to go skinny dipping and loved it! She in the middle of the pool and kicked her legs and waved her arms and got all the adoring adults wet.
Glad Teagen is enjoying her food too it's fun isn't it. I read tht it can take several exposures to a taste for baby to like something sometimes so I will keep on trying carrot!..Kiara just had breakfast - baby semolina /porridge with banana then some apple purée. Then a lunge and suck on my bread. Cheeky.
Bet Tagen was adorable in the water, splashing Kiara went in a pool for first time last weekend. All eyes were on her, she still looks so small. I was proud
In fact someone said this week she s so small for 5 months old. Another person couldn't believe she was on solids already. I think the lack of hair confuses people too
