Barely Staying Afloat

I feel like I am just barely staying afloat right now.  Work is starting to get very busy/stressful.  Today I dealt with a very difficult student.  In fact, I was shaking after I was finished with him.  In addition to this, I have a lot of professors that are turning late orders, so now I […]



Full Weekend

We’ve had a full weekend.  Laura’s been fighting a low grade fever for a couple of days.  There have been 5 confirmed cases of strep at daycare.  Saturday morning she woke up with a sore throat.  I didn’t want to mess around and wait so I took her in to the doctor.  Her 9:30 appointment […]



Adventures in the hospital

It all started on Friday. Laura was scheduled to get her tubes in. That went ok. Then she was nauseous all Friday. We chalked it up to the anesthesia. She was able to eat a decent dinner Friday night. Saturday morning at 4 am she woke up and puked in her bed. I was up […]




I ended up putting my blog on a hiatus while I was getting through book issue.  I’m sure that it would have helped to be able to type out my frustrations at the end of the day; however, I was either too tired or too worried about what I may post and get in trouble […]



Warren’s Stats

I wanted to post Warren’s stats from his 2 year doctor visit: Height:  32.5″  11% Weight:  28.2″  50.5% Head circumference:  49cm  81% More posts to come!



The Party’s Over

If Laura had her way, she’d still be celebrating her birthday.  She had a blast, minus the minor fall.  The poor girl has my grace.  For birthdays 1, 2, and 4, she has fallen and gotten serious bumps.  Her first birthday she fell off the bed onto the concrete floor in the basement.  Her second […]



Another Good Day

Today was another good day for me.  Warren had a follow-up appointment with the ped. urologist.  Robert just took the day off so he could be at the appointment and have a day with us.  The appointment went well.  The cream worked, but the foreskin is still a bit tight.  We aren’t going to continue […]




I have been away much longer than I intended.  Between work, Dance Theatre, and trying to stay sane, the blog became neglected.  Last week I worked 5 days.  I saw the kids between 5:30 (or whenever they woke up) and 7:15 Tuesday through Friday.  The rest of the day was spent in River Falls.  It […]



18 Month Appointment

We took Warren to his 18 month appointment on Tuesday the 8th.  He weighs 26 pounds (50%), is 32″ long (36%), and has a head circumference of 48.7cm (73.5%).  So far he has been in the 50 or lower percentile for his length/height.  It wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up being tall later in […]




I didn’t mean to leave this neglected so long.  I was home Thursday with both kids.  I made it a day to just sit and relax as much as I could while still taking care of two small children.  I worked on Friday while Robert stayed home with the kids (he took a furlough day).  […]
