The Parking Garage from HELL!

Docs appointment went well, but we almost didn't make it there. Stupid parking garage! Luckily Bubba did not have to go potty while we were driving around for 25 minutes looking for a spot! It was like there was some sort of flippin convention at that place! I am soooooo glad that I only have to go there once more next week for the kids checkups....I hate it there! But all is well with me, post baby...and I did manage to keep James up near my head during the internal exam...poor kid might have been scarred for life! Yes I take my kids to the doctors with me, no choice here. No major birth control talk though! She was pretty happy with my educated answers...and told me after our losses and Ladybug's birth, we should definitely been seen in a high risk place BEFORE we get prego again.....but we were already prepared for that...Then we were off to the McD's play land place where there was a daycare Mom about 45 years old with 6 toddlers!!! Seriously what a brave lady. After Bubba played with them for about an hour, she gathered all her little people up and told them to put on their shoes. Bubba said "OK!" and proceeded to get his shoes on. I wonder if I would have stopped him from going with her if she hadn't noticed? Part of me seriously reconsiders homeschooling when I see things like that...but then I remember why we have chosen to do it and know it is the BEST choice for our family... I did search out a Moms Club in VT where we are headed and am anxious to join. My little guy needs friends!

And Beanie, you want to know about him right? He's alive and had a crap free night thankfully! Ladybug however is taking her good ole time falling asleep tonight...Bubba did pass out in my bed and I am soooo not moving his heavy butt. How can a kid look so lightweight and feel like a bag of bricks when you pick him up? 3 years old and weighs 42 pounds...I should take out a loan now to shop at Costco when he is a teen. And Ladybug sure is on her way there too! For a tiny 6 pounder, 5 pounder when we left the hospital, she sure has put it all on! She looks so fat. FAT! If you cannot see any portion of neck, someone is hitting the bottle a bit too much...But who cares, soon enough she'll be running amok chasing her crazy brother. If her standing on my legs already, bearing weight for about a minute is any indication at 9 weeks, whoa nellie. So my babies are well and my hubby will be home "soon". I used to hate keeping secrets but it is fun knowing when he is coming home when not many others do!!! I tell Bubba every night how many more days and he gets so excited...This was a short deployment and the last for about 2.5 years! Then the real hard time comes...6 months at a time! Yikes...we try not to look that far ahead, because if we did and I saw myself homeschooling 6 year old Bubba, entertaining 3 year old Ladybug, and bouncy a newborn on my hip, I might puke;)

Time for me and a date with my "Friends". When J deploys, I watch all our Friends DVD's...that show is awesome and since J introduced me to it, it's fitting...Night all.


  1. I hear you... I drove around in there for 45 minutes, missed my appointment, parked in a handicapped space, got a ticket and cried for 2 hours during and after the ordeal. I screamed various threats to blow the building up while I listened to all 3 kids in my car cry because they were hungry/tired/bored. That place blows.

  2. I just saw an add on the left for Puppy Potty Training Bootcamp. How AWFUL would it be to work there? Where people send their rowdy pets to you and you have to deal with their bodily funcitons until they go outside? Ew. There's someone in the hood btw that lets their dog REGULARLY crap right in front of the gate that leads to the backyard. WTF? Warm strange dog poo on your toes first thing in the morning on the way to school is NOT the way to start a week... J doesn't walk P&B over thisaway in the morning does he?

  3. Ha no. That's just gross, and mean. When we do walk them, we have a crapbag in hand don't worry! And that has to be on Dirtiest Jobs!
