This week...ugh

This has been the kind of week where mom not being here makes things suck even more. No, not because of Christmas (I'll get to that) but because of life things that I want her comfort and advice for.

I have bronchitis. It sucks. I've never had it before. It's not like it's a super big deal, but it would be nice to have my mommy. I'm trying to drink a lot of fluids and take the cough medicine every four hours, but I'd love to hear her suggestions on how to make the cough feel not so horrible.

Gabe has been using the potty now for at least two weeks. It's so awesome! Well, except for the fact that he won't poop anymore. He has gone on the potty so I'm not sure what exactly is stopping him now. We have tried giving him a warm bath and we even are telling him he can have candy if he poops. But he is holding steady. We gave him a few chewable laxative things, but they haven't truly worked. I don't want to give him an enema. Sometimes we can barely wipe his butt because he gets so upset, how can I give him an enema??

So, it's silly things like a mom's advice that I'm missing most lately. I hope you guys aren't getting tired of all of the mom posts. I hope everyone had a great Christmas!

Update on life

Wow! It's been a long time. I have been really busy and not always feeling in a good place. It's hard to blog when you barely have a moment to yourself, and in that moment you are missing mom like crazy.


Update on jorge.....he's doing great! He recovered from surgery really well and really quickly. He's been having a lot of quality time with gabe and I love it (even though I miss gabe terribly) I'm so glad they are getting time together.

Update on dad...he had surgery on his left knee. He's at home, rehabbing and got his staples out yesterday. He's already set up the next surgery for January 20th.

Update on, has that little guy grown. He's potty trained now, something I never thought would happen. He is even using the regular toilet, not the little plastic potty! He sings 'twinkle, twinkle' all of the time. I don't have a whole lot more though, because I'm not spending the time with him that I used to.

Update on me....still plugging away at Beans (kinda. I haven't touched the sewing machine in a week or more). But, Alli and I did really well for our first craft fair. We sold three Beans and a ton of bows! I'm trying to decide on the next step for my future. I want to go back to school, I just haven't had the time to go talk to a counselor yet and see what my options are. I am assuming that I will have to start from scratch since its been so long. I'm also missing mom. We made cookie press cookies last weekend and inside I was a mess. But they turned out good and we will probably make more this weekend (if there's time!)
