Sweet things Wrong Timing

I imagine I’m not the only woman out there that has a significant other that has the worst timing in the world. I imagine there are millions of us.

Who in their right mind thinks “hey she’s changing a massive poopy diaper this is the perfect time to rub my wife’s shoulders”??? Like really dude I’m trying to make sure not to get poo all over the baby not to mention myself and you choose now to rub my shoulders…..get the hell out of here or I’m going to throw her dirty napalm of a diaper at you.

I’m not sure what possesses him to think that the proper time to be sweet and lovey is when i’m diffusing a bomb of a diaper but here we are.


18 months old today

Choking noises are hilarious mommy!

Holy crap does time fly by. I’m only able to post this because the little princess is taking her afternoon nap. It’s amazing how much she’s grown physically and mentally in the last month. She’s finally getting interested in the dog and actually petted her for the first time last week! Jelly still isn’t so sure about Katie yet but that’s because Jelly is a huge wuss and is afraid of cords and wires which Katie has an a lot of cords and wires. Last week Katie sneezed and the dog literally ran away to hide in the bedroom closet. Anyhow she’s getting better at crawling, standing, and doing wonderfully with eating by mouth.

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of her trach and G-tube placement and hopefully come the 28th the doctors at U of M will start the weaning process. It seems like it will be a long process to wean but hey as long as she’s healthy I’m happy. So I’m guessing no later than September for her to have the trach removed! I may have to do a double party for her second birthday and for her finally being off the ventilator.

I’m thinking about trying to set up a preemie clothing drive sometime this summer. I’m not sure how I’m going to go about it but I’m sure I’ll come up with something. It’s amazing how much preemie clothing costs, especially the clothes designed for babies that have PIC lines. 12 dollars a smock isn’t that insane!?! I think I’m going to learn to sew because I hate when people take advantage of an already crappy situation. I’ve priced it out and for the materials alone it’s like maybe 10 bucks to make 15 smocks for micro preemies. So less than a dollar a smock yet they charge 12 dollars each. Pisses me off just thinking of it actually.

Anyhow I hope everyone has a fantastic day and enjoy the spring weather!!!!!

Someone has something against Japan

Holy crap 2 earthquakes in one week. How nuts is that!?!! Someone must really really hate Japan is all that I can come up with. 😦 Maybe the universe is trying to tell them something like move off my damn island. Tsunamis, earthquakes, nuclear meltdowns holy shit I’d move. Of course I could say the same to all the people that live in Tornado Alley. Don’t rebuild MOVE maybe the universe or God is saying hey so this is my space GTFO or else I’ll blow your house in quite literally….

I can’t believe it’s April already

This is insane. Where does the year go and matter of fact why can’t it be the end of April already. Katie’s next U of M appointment is at the end of April and I’m hoping that they will FINALLY make some changes to her ventilator. She’s been doing awesome and I’m finally getting her to creep towards her toys. The PT lady has been trying for months with no avail so I asked a nurse friend of mine what she did with her kids and it’s so simple just put them on the floor and leave their toys out of reach and BAM creeping like a superstar. I’ve been trying to get a new PT person, she’s not a bad therapist just I think we’ve hit a wall that we can’t get over at the moment. OT has been great and has been training my husband how to feed her without her trying to vomit on him. Last night he feed her on her own for the first time!
