Yep in our universe of the never ending sickness Jo has two ear infections. The good, we found out before we went on vacation and she will be on the mend, the bad...Two fricking ear infections!!!!!!! Sorry vent over.

Beth, hope this weekend goes well and poppy is ok!!

You should try taking her to the chiropractor. They help rid ear infections.

MA, Interesting! I had never heard of that. However I'm not sure how much help they be on a little person. According to my doctor it's because the tubes are too small And when they're little, the tubes are more horizontal than vertical, there-by trapping more fluid, but thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Anna - I'll update my weekend later but I wanted to say that we took poppy to the dr on friday afternoon and no ear infection but the dr said it was really early in the cold and he may very well end up developing them.....he told me if things don't improve by next wednesday to come back and check the ears again (of course, if it gets worse then go in right away). But anyways, it's no unusual for them to be seen then a few days later to develop! hang in there momma!!! xo

It works like a charm actually. I have a bunch of friends who have had to do it. They waited because they weren't convinced it could help and they said they could have saved so much time had they done it sooner. It also helps for adults too but children can benefit quite a bit! Go with a Pediatric Chiropractor and it's not as invasive but more gentile. I believe they use instruments instead of actual cracking as I went during my pregnancy with Amelia and they didn't do what my usual chiropractor does. Check out these links to see if they may be something you may be interested in. While most Dr.'s are open to alternative care, MANY of them don't really believe Chiropractic care can do the job. They just aren't educated in most alternative options. They get more education from Sudo-Pharma companies than they do on preventative care.

I don't want to start a war here but I am so against chiro's for personal and family reasons. And not trying to be a jerk but here's a link from an actual chiro on why it's not a good idea:

Not trying to devalue what MA says - sometimes it works for people. It's just good to get all sides of the spectrum. No disrespect, MA!

As someone who spent a year out of school with ear infections and who has used chiropractic treatment in conjunction with medical Dr.'s I couldn't disagree with you more.

My daughter also has gone 18 months without any illness so I'd say that something is right but I'll end this discussion here. I'd also like to take it a bit further and say that in wanting a child for 10 years I would NEVER put my child at risk for hurting her bones or muscoskeletal part of her body. I kind of take affense. But whatever you have to do to prove your point Beth. I'll take one for the team!

Oh MA, as I said, no disrespect meant. Nor was my thinking in ANY way meant to insinuate any offense to Anyone. I'm sorry I opened my big mouth, it was not meant to be anything but both sides of the picture. I only meant to have a healthy discussion, not for anyone to take it as an attack. I had meant it when I said no disrespect. Please know that what I said was a personal opinion - I personally and members of my family have had very negative experiences with them and I wasn't dropping an insult to anyone.....like I said, sometimes it works for people,sometimes not.

Hey ladies,

Man, I miss being able to be on here more!

Really quick - Anna so glad you are going on vacay but so sorry about Jo's ears!

Beth the pasta sounds yummy and I am as always in awe at your mad skills, lady! You are awesome! When it gets to 8:20 and I have nothing done for dinner it's pizza for sure, lol unless I have freezer pleasers on hand!

I'll stay out of the chiro debate except to say I've never been. :-)

Uh oh, babies crying, so sorry, more later! Hugs and love!

Hi Ladies,

Happy Monday! I am still at work so this will be somewhat quick - unless I end up writing another novel like the other day LOL

Katelyn’s day party was a lot of fun. I will try to post some photos. It was low key in that the biggest attraction for the 2 and under crowd was the big bubble wand I bought. They LOVED chasing the bubbles and trying to pop them. As I suspected, the Pizza was hit and we probably could have just had that as EVERYONE had pizza not just the little kids so the 6 pies we bought went fast! Party started at 2, but folks didn’t arrive until about 2:30/2:45 which was ok, because I was still trying to get the decorations finished at 2pm. FYI- don’t try to run errands the day of the party and think 2 hours will be enough time to set-up, decorate, get yourself and your little one dressed. In hindsight, since the party was at the house, I should have decorated the inside of the house the night before and at least did all the gift bags as well. Party was pretty much over by 5:30 which was ok since party was 2-5. By the end of the night, my lower back hurt so bad I could barely stand and I sciatic pain shooting from my left butt check to my calf and could hardly walk. My mom sent me to bed at 9 LOL.

Anna – So sorry that Jo has a double ear infection that is the pits, but at least she will be ok before you leave. Thanks for the heads up about the storm! My mom was supposed to leave for Denver on Tuesday, but changed her flight to Wednesday.

Like Angela, I’ve never been to a chiro so I have nothing to say on the matter.

Hope everyone else had a great weekend! Katie has a Dr appointment tomorrow and then I have an appointment on Wednesday. I will try to post some photos either Wednesday or Thursday of the baby!

Hugs to all,
Step

Evening Ladies - quick post before I need to crash watching tv in bed...

Steph - the party sounds so fun! Glad you had a great time! Loved the photos on fb! Katelyn is so adorable. Glad your mom helped! Hoping to see new pics of that precious new little baby! I'm living vicariously through you and would love love love to see it.

Angela - I'm so curious to know how you are doing with two - do they nap at the same time? Is Ethan on one nap or no nap? Does he need to use a quiet voice when Reece is sleeping or does he sleep through a train running through your house??? lol Do you collapse at bedtime!?!?!?

Well, again, sorry for ruffling feathers, wasn't my intention and hoping to not revisit it. One thing I am sadly surprised in is that, MA, you unfriended me on FB over this. That is unfortunate and obviously not anything I had intended, but I respect your actions. Take care.

Ok, must go crash. Waiting on a few new patterns to crochet, but I'll keep working on an afghan I do in between little things for poppy.

hugs!
