The Joys of Parenting

Kaleb got into my makeup (With a little help from Zach, I'm sure)
he really didn't like me taking his picture, he screamed the whole time
this was the very next day, the boys found my markers and thought
it would be fun to use Kalebs legs as a canvas.
This is what they do to each other, in this case what is done to Kaleb.
I have to have locks on my refrigerator and pantry so they don't go "hog wild"
with the food. It happens all the time now that the refrigerator lock is broken.
I'll be doing someones hair in the other room assuming that they are occupied
with a cartoon and the snacks and drinks I have given them, only to come in
and discover that Zachery has gotten into the refrigerator and pulled food out.
It would be ok if he just ate it, but he chews it up and spits it out, or in one case
he opened up a yogurt and flinged it all over the walls, and smeared it into
the couch cushions! AARGH!!! He is notorious for crushing his crackers and
cookies all over the carpet, and spitting his grape juice or milk all over Kalebs'
head and the walls and furniture and tv. Thankfully we as parents learn
our lessons and try to not give him things that encourage such behavior, but
what do you do when you ask him WHY he did it in the first place, and he
tells you "because I was mad at you". What did I do to make him mad? Is
it because I am doing hair, and not right there with him? I have been doing
hair at home since he was born, and he is now expressing his dislike for this?
I hope he can appreciate me more when I stop doing hair for the next
couple of months and we can work something out. He is almost 4, and I
sure wish he could behave a little better and be a good example for his brother.
I can't blame it all on him, after all, he is just a kid, and I could be a better mom.

here I am again

this is me once again @ about 7 months.

I am a bit bigger now @ 8 months, and very uncomfortable
as you all can imagine. I am starting to swell in my legs and
feet and hands and my face. Not fun! But at least I only
have one month left! Along with that comes the weekly nst's,
ultrasounds and doctors visits, which aren't so bad except the
fact that it takes me 30 min just to get there and I have to
find a babysitter for each visit, and gas prices have once again
gone above $3. But once I'm there it's nice to sit and relax for
a little bit without the boys.

So this is what I learned today at the specialist. The anti E is still to low to worry about, and the doctor is confident that it will stay that way for the rest of my pregnancy. But, there still is a chance that it could get out of controll, so with that said, he'll let my doctor handle all the blood tests and ultrasounds and such and if it gets out of controll then I'll come back to him. So yay! I guess. He was way more concerned about my gestational diabetes, he firmly believes that I have type 2 diabetes, because we tested two months early and the results came back high. He thinks that if they would have tested at 19 weeks, it still would have been high and they would have been able to diagnose me with type 2, but they tested too late and now I have to get tested after I have the baby. He said a hemoglobin A1c test isn't good enough, but that I need to have a glucose screening test done. Then he sent us off to their nutritionist and she set me up with a set diet plan, which I have to report every friday. I have to write down the exact amounts of everything I eat and drink, for all my meals and snacks. Talk about a headache! The funny thing is, is that I have small babies, so it makes me wonder if I didn't have diabetes, how small would they be? Normally the babies come out large and swollen, but not mine, they come out small. Funny, huh. My doctor attributes that to how well I controll my diet... well should I not so they come out a little bigger? So anyways, the fun is not over yet, I still have to get my blood tested regularly, and we don't know what the result is from the test they did on monday, so we'll see (for the antibody). And I can look forward to an awefull remaining two months of my pregnancy, of a strict diet, and possible insulin shots. So I guess you could say we got good news and bad news... And I believe the many many prayers have been the cause of the good news! Thank you All!!
