First let me just say thank you to everyone who sent the wonderful emails and messages last week. The D&C was done last Monday and I am feeling much better to have put it behind us. I just needed to take the week last week to just recoup and be with my family. It was good for me to do that and I think it helped a lot with the healing/grieving process.
We saw the NEW awesome Dr W today for my post-op follow up. He thinks that we should be ready to begin the process again in December. So that is what we are going to shoot for. Time will tell how my body reacts to everything and what the exact time frame will be but I am very optimistic that next time we will get a healthy pregnancy.
So moving on to funnier things, since that’s how I roll, yo!
Today while I was in the shower, Monkey was playing around the bathroom waiting for me. When I got out of the shower, he stood there frozen staring at me.
Eyes as big as saucers.
In one hand he held the toilet brush *gag*.
And in the other… MY TOOTHBRUSH.
And guess who hadn’t brushed her teeth yet? Just thinking of all of the things that he could have done with that toothbrush while I was in the shower made me a little dizzy. LOL
At twenty months of age, Monkey has already learned the yummy goodness that is the “Cookie”. This has recently been realized as a pretty cool thing. Here is why.
He doesn’t like to try anything new. ANYTHING new. He turns up his nose and hollers at me every time I try. By his reaction, you would think I offered him a flaming turd!
I want him to try new things, so I have to be creative. I try to trick the toddler brain. Last week I got him to eat slices of cucumber by asking him “want a cookie?” Today, slices of Apple, same thing. How bad am I?
Eh, it works. I am going to go with what works.
Ok, I have a serious issue. And I really need some advice from y’all.
The babysitter. Monkey LOVES her. But she is stinking up the house! It’s insane how bad the smell of dog urine is after she is here. As soon as she walks in the door I am smacked in the face by it. I have no idea what to do about it. I am sure she doesn’t realize this and up until now, I haven’t felt that there is any way that I could tell her. But now, I think I have to. I am using a TON of febreeze and Lysol every day now to rid the smell from my house. I have to febreeze everywhere that she sat. Which isn’t hard to figure out because the green smoke rising from the carpet or couch cushion is a good indicator.
All I can think of is that while she is here, Monkey has to suffer through that smell. If it were me, I would go crazy. I never get used to the smell. I can’t imagine how anyone ever could.
I have been checking my carpet with the black light almost every evening now to make sure it isn’t my dogs.
I don’t know what to do!!!
Would you tell her? How?!?! Please tell me what you think I should do because I don’t want to lose her as a Nanny but I can’t deal with it anymore. *sigh*
