Dr. Better-Shape-Up-Jackass

We all know how much I love my beloved OB/GYN – Dr. SoNice. I love him with all of my heart. And up until June – I loved every other doctor in his practice. Just not as much as him. Which is a good position to be in. Then, I met Dr. Jackass with my last miscarriage. I began hating him with all of my soul. Well – now it’s time for the rotation portion of this pregnancy. I have to see each doctor in the practice at least once in case I need them for the birth part of...

We don’t say douchebag. 28

We don’t say douchebag.

Our family has always been in the habit of making up words or phrases to Goof-i-fy our lives. My husband does it the most often, as he was the one who started adding “-pants” on the end of any adjective to indicate an EXTREME AMOUNT of that descriptor. Like, “That song is crappy-pants.” Or, “You are acting crazy-pants.” It is something we all did for awhile, but it has since faded as various other bizarre phrases take it’s place. When MrZ started using flickr he started using the word, “Jambo!” as some sort of exclamation or curse word. It didn’t...

Update: Case workers will be investigating me soon.

We decided to wake NikkiZ up before MrZ went to work so he could see how she slept. When I opened the door to her room, she was sleeping on the floor near her toybox. We started laughing and she immediately ran towards us in a sleepy haze. We asked her, “Why are you sleeping on the floor? You’re supposed to sleep in your bed! Not next to the toybox!” Well – she has translated the incident in her own mind. When she helped me wake up her brother she exclaimed, “I’m s’posed to sleep in bed, but I slept...

Night One Out Of The Crib 13

Night One Out Of The Crib

Well – about 7:30pm last night – NikkiZ asked to go to bed on her Diego sheets. She does ask to go to be sometimes, but we thought that was a good step towards a successful night in her non-jail bed. We all three tucked her in to celebrate the big moment. She didn’t seem to be phased. We haven’t heard from her since. This is like the ease at which we transitioned her from co-sleeping to crib-sleeping. Something I dreaded for months and turned out to NOT be a big deal at all. My life mocks my anxiety. We...

A girl and her new sheets.

We’ve been busy today moving NikkiZ’s stuff into the BIG bedroom so we can paint for LilZ to take over the smaller bedroom. Since chaos is going to reign over this transition in the next few weeks (we paint this weekend) we decided we might as well take her out of the crib amidst the insanity. We can’t really afford to buy a twin mattress or bed right now, so we just decided to buy her some new sheets and put the crib mattress on the floor. We thought the new sheets would help her distinguish the BIG GIRL BED...
