Hair cut…Don’t try this at home.

Wow, when I came home from the shower last night I was greeted with an unpleasant sight. My five-year-old decided to give himself his very first auto-haircut. :yikesAnd woooeee it was a doozy. Almost to the scalp in the very front. I wasn’t too angry at him until I saw he’d decided to practice on […]

Quick entry

Wow! Trying to find computer time while caring for thirteen kids is tough! Things are going pretty well now. The one little RAD kid is finally coming out of his shell though, and that’s difficult. But other than that, we’re all surviving! The kids really like me, and yet hate me at the same time. […]

My baby the bully

Oh my goodness. My baby is becoming quite the little bully. He doesn’t hit me, but he does hit the older boys when he’s mad, or sometimes just to be funny and they hate it! Today he pushed his best friend, Alena, down (she’s 5 mos older but 10 lbs lighter than he is) and […]

Missing Playgroup yet again…

Well, we will be missing playgroup again because Ollie woke up vomitting this morning. :yikes It’s probably from the moldy yogurt(yes moldy, you have to know yogurt is bad if there’s mold on it!!!) I found my baby eating yesterday. Who knows where he hid it. He must have put it away for safe keeping.:wink […]

Wonder baby strikes again!

Well, this morning as I was leisurely soaking in the tub, enjoying my ME time, I heard my 20 month old son wake up and start crying. He climbed off the bed and came looking for me. He knew I was in the bath, but usually he cries at the door for a second and […]

How long does RSV last?

My 20 month old has come down with RSV. I’m lucky he’s still breastfeeding and that he’s a toddler because it’s not bad enough to be in the hospital. BUT the Dr. has basically quarantined us(RSV is so bad here that those with young children are being urged to stay home as much as possible […]

Vacation and Ollie’s accident-originally posted 7-9-03

I guess I’d better start off with little Ollie, so you don’t have to scan the post. About 2 hours after we arrived home from our vacation, my percocious, curious, and VERY FAST 13 mo old baby burned his right hand on my brother’s motorcycle exhaust! Luckily there is no permanent damage, but it is […]

I have been so down-originally posted 7-12-03

I think I need a break. This burn thing has been so hard on little Ollie. He’s still in a lot of pain, especially when I change the dressing. The blisters on his fingers popped and when the dead skin was removed it was discovered that he has 3rd degree burns on some of his […]

Update on Ollie originally posted 7-21-03

Well, Ollie’s hand is finally looking better. The doctor says I have done a superb job caring for it and that it is healing perfectly with no adhesions! He got to go bandageless for a few hours today which was nice. He’s not in too much pain anymore and I’m not feeling as emotionally drained. […]

Birth Story-originally posted 5-30-02

Not much time so I am copy and pasting my story! I didn’t get to have my homebirth. My experience wasn’t empowering, but it was beautiful, and most of all it was mine. I made all the decisions and called all the shots. No one hurt me or degraded me and it was a peaceful […]
