Aaaah, Yes! The joys of children

Yippee! All the babies are home, happy, safe and healthy. We picked them up last Sunday, thus explaining my absence for the week. Did you miss me???

The Soldier and the Princess had doctor's appointments on Monday. The boy grew 2 inches and 14 pounds in the last year and a half. Yeah!!!!! We have done every kind of test (I mean ALL) imaginable, and I am so glad that he is finally growing. Of course he eats us out of house and home daily, but I will do whatever is necessary for him to be healthy in the end.

I know some of you read earlier when we were having such trouble with The Soldier so here is a little update. When we went to the doctor, C and I told him everything...Every.Thing. We have started him on a low dose of some medicine and we will see if this one thing will help. Otherwise, we will have to do a dual med and I don't know how I feel about that yet. I do know I will do whatever it takes.

The best thing ever happened at the dr's appointment. The doc looked at C and me and said "Who is the biological mom, again?" I love him for that! There is never any judgement there, they just act like we are regular parents!

Anyway, just wanted to let you know I was still here and hadn't fallen off the planet. Oh and to The Mother, my work internet keepers won't let me comment on your site from work anymore and that sucks because you have had the funniest posts this week. I love your survival guide!

Everybody have a wonderful weekend, maybe I'll take pics or something this weekend. Wouldn't that be neat?


  1. Your kids are home and you're HAPPY? I'm desperately counting the days when mine are GONE again.

    What's wrong with my site? Too much honestly about sex and the ancient misogynists? Says something about your employers. Not that they don't have a right to stop employees from internet hopping. Just wondering why I've been singled out.

  2. @The Mother-maybe in a couple weeks I'll be ready, then they'll all be going to school anyway.

    It's not just yours, there are several that use Intense Debate that won't let me make or see comments. I'm just happy it will still pull up your posts.

  3. Best wishes with the Soldier. I had to put Little Man on Zantac at three months b/c of his GERD but he's outgrown it now and it definitely was necessary. Don't worry about doing too much - you'll know when your little one is feeling better.
