Whew it’s been another crazy week for me. A has had yet another round of a bad cough and on Tuesday I had a stomach bug.
My brain is all over the place and I miss you all so I have a few random topics to chatter about. Yeah, I’m kind of losing it
Do you ever suspect parents send their kids to daycare when they are sick? I do and it’s not fair but there’s not much I can do about it but hope the sick child is sent home before other kids get it. Kind of irresponsible if you ask me. I also keep hearing that it’s great A is being exposed to all these germs now but it doesn’t make it any easier for me.
On a brighter note, A started the next program up at school. All the kids are advanced walkers, talking and getting more independent. It’s amazing what she does every day. She knows her hat goes on her head, socks and shoes go on her feet and arms go in the coat sleeves. My little baby is getting so big.
Last weekend we noticed A’s belly was quite bloated. She started having some major blowouts so we tried eliminating certain foods like pasta from her diet. We are praying she doesn’t have a gluten issue since she’s already allergic to milk. Four days into no pasta she’s still averaging 4 outfit changes at school (sorry, Miss Amanda!!!) so now we have eliminated oatmeal and are hoping her tummy shrinks and stops producing bombs. Is it possible oatmeal is the culprit? We’ll find out in a few days. It’s so hard to figure out what works well in A’s diet. Seems her stomach can be so sensitive. We’ve been trying to make most of her meals from scratch but its not always easy to do. Do you guys have kiddos who love a certain food one day and then hate it the next or is my daughter a food diva?
One other random mommy thought: overnight diapers are worth the hype!! We’ve had less leaks then ever at night since we started using them. Seems we were hanging the sheets at least 3 times a week just on leaks alone. We’ve been using Huggies Overnights and are quite happy with them.
Lastly, I want to thank you all for the comments you’ve left me and notes you have sent me. I’ve been contemplating on putting this blog on hold due to time constraints. I have so many ideas in my head of what I want to ramble about yet I don’t have time to execute them all to the fullest degree. We’ll see how things go these next several weeks but I truly have enjoyed hearing your mommy stories and getting your wise mommy advice. I need all the help I can get.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
