Halloween this year was a lot of fun, at first didn’t think D was going to be able to go due to work but he decided to call off 🙂
A friend of ours who is like a sister & her son came over then we went out trick-or-treating. We only hit a few streets but the boys did get a decent amount of candy. Of course this being western new york, it was cold when we started & kept getting colder.
Later after our friend & son went home T wanted to watch “Spookley the Square Pumpkin”. Trent had a good time except at one house, the lady was a bit older & took forever passing out candy. So the kids had to wait & wait, once it was their turn the lady asked T if he was banging his bucket on the stairs railing, he said yes & she said well you don’t get any candy. Seriously?! These kids are waiting forever & just being kids & you’re going to do that? Poor T he ran to us crying, he’s just bad & can’t have candy. Of course other parents are looking at us giving us looks, like really people, it was bullshit, but whatever we left bitching & D was highly pissed off. It took a while before T was calmed down & back to himself, it really bothered him. Needless to at we know where to not go next year. Atleast he was able to finish his Halloween on a good note with chicken nuggets & a movie 🙂
We hope you all had a fun/safe Halloween. Have you ever had a problem like we did this year?!
It was Friday 09.30.2016, myself & D were relaxing and getting ready to eat lunch when I got the phone call. I recognized the number it was the school, I looked at D and said “now what?”. It was the school nurse, she said that the kids were out at recess and T was up on the slide and fell off the side & the kids were saying it was about 4 feet. T is crying and saying his arm hurts, you need to come get him & get him checked out. My heart sank because I knew, if he was crying that much it was very serious. D quickly got ready & started walking to the school (we live like 4 blocks away) & I called my ma saying needed to get to Ts school cause he fell and have to take him to the hospital.
We take him to our local hospital, the poor kid is in so much pain, had two ice packs on his arm. Took forever til the doctor finally came in to see him & request x-rays. Get the x-rays done and wait again for an answer. Found out he fractured his wrist & forearm bone buckled. They put him in a splint & sent us home. We gave him some Motrin & let him sleep. A few hours later & research on a buckled bone, we weren’t happy on how the hospital treated T with his arm. So little after 1 am we take a trip to Rochester Strong hospital for a better opinion on his arm.
We get there is 2am and we get told where to go, apparently they have a separate section for children in the emergency department. After about 2 or so hours we are finally seen & explained everything, they were kinds stunned about what our hospital did. Finally they did x-rays as well and said the same our hospital did BUT they actually casted Ts arm. He picked out blue which is his favorite color. He was so good about being at the hospital from 2am – 7am, what helped was they had TV and he got to pick movies to watch & of course they had Thomas & Friends so we watched that. The room was a split room so there was another patient, who was a little boy maybe 2 years old with a nasty cold. But the kids played together, found out they both love trains lol.
We are official parents to a child who’s broke their bone. It was a very stressful day getting him proper care but that’s what parents do 🙂 He still has the cast on and is already getting tired of it but loves he don’t have to do gym til further notice. Whenever our insurance stops being assholes he’ll finally be seen by a orthopedic surgeon, that doctor however did take out of his own time to quickly look at his x-rays and said Rochester did right by casting it, and that when we are able to get an appointment with him, that he’ll remove Ts current cast, let him itch his arm, clean it & put a new cast on. So let’s hope my insurance will get me the damn referral I need since he has an appointment Wednesday.
It’s been an interesting journey having to help a kid care for a broken arm. It can be challenging at times as well, cause T likes to try and do a lot he normally would & can’t due to the cast. Let’s hope soon his arm will heal great & will no longer need the cast much longer.
We are currently sitting on our front porch enjoying the nice day. It’s one of those days were you just wanna be outside instead of doing homework. So today T and myself are enjoying the afternoon then later we’ll get to his homework. Besides his homework is so easy, read 15 mins, math flashcards and spelling.
Are there days you let your kid(s) do their homework later so they can enjoy a nice day?
This post is a bit over due, but I will be attending RetroGameCon again this year and will be in the Artist Alley. At first I was a little bit skeptical about going but decided to just do it. This year the event is 2 days so that means I have a lot of stuff I need to get done. But being the way that I am, I am procrastinating again, I’ve had a few months to get stuff done and I’ve only gotten magnets finished. I need to stop putting stuff off and get things done, but finding the energy is not easy. Another issue of mine is actually figuring out what exactly to make and how much of everything since last year I did up pillows, dice bags, etc and I’m lucky if half of it sold. But, I know I will get everything done in time, just gotta stay off of World of Warcraft, since the new expansion I’ve been working on that instead. Convention is a little over 6 weeks away, wish me luck on getting stuff ready in time!!! I know I can’t wait to go, it’s going to be fun and interesting like it was last year!!
That’s right, my little man lost his first tooth yesterday (09.18.2016)!!!!! He has had 2 loose teeth and the one was really loose for about a week. I went to check his tooth for him and boy that sucker was ready to come out, so I kept telling him to wiggle it, after some wiggling and eating & Gigi taking a popsicle (those ones in the plastic that kids complain their hands get cold) and telling him to bite down and she’d pull the popsicle out and the 2nd time his tooth came out. He didn’t complain about any pain and didn’t complain about the little blood until I told him to rinse his mouth, he freaked a little but was calm after it stopped. Of course this mumma teared up a little bit 😦 because my baby boy is growing up more now that he’s loosing his baby teeth. He was so excited and proud that his tooth fell out. We told him he had to put the tooth under his pillow for the tooth-fairy, and when he went to bed he did and made sure he didn’t sleep near the pillow so nothing happened to it. He woke up today freaking out saying the tooth-fairy visited him and took his tooth and gave him $5! Some people were surprised he is just now losing his teeth because he’s 7 years old, we just kept saying the dentist says he has strong teeth and it would probably happen around 7 years old.
I just can’t get over it, T has lost his first baby tooth and already got another loose one.
That’s right it’s every parents favorite time of year, when the kiddos go back to school!! September 7, 2016 was T’s first day of school. He was excited and nervous that morning, he goes “my tummy hurts” I said do you feel a little uncomfortable about going to school? He says “yes”, I said hunny that’s cause you’re nervous about starting school, you’ll be okay 🙂
This year T started 2nd grade, so that means he’ll be up on the 2nd floor of the school, so I can’t blame him for being nervous. When he got home from school, he just kept going on and on about his first day. He was saying his teacher was funny and that he got to see all his friends from 1st grade when they went out to play. He was really excited because he got to see his girlfriend and had to tell me how she has a Pikachu backpack and she liked his Pokemon backpack.
I can’t believe my baby boy is in the 2nd grade already! Time sure does fly when you have a child, I can only imagine what it’s like with multiple children. I’m just glad he has a good teacher and had a wonderful first day of school 🙂
I’m the type of person who is always downing herself but will praise others. I don’t see beauty in myself but can see it in others. I honestly don’t know why I am this way, it may have something to do with being bullied as a child, always being called fat & ugly, maybe it’s just something I’ve implanted in my mind because that’s what I see when I look in the mirror. I wish I knew why I feel this way, I don’t care about myself and at times just give up, it’s what I do, always give up on things.
I’ve been trying to change all this ever since I met my fiance 9 years ago. He is always telling me I’m beautiful, smart and a great person to be around and that so many people think the same way. If that’s so why do I feel like that’s not true, I feel the complete opposite. Yes I’m plus size, have been since I was about 12 years old, back then I was like maybe 20lbs over weight, now a days I’m way overweight, I have PCOS and it’s a bitch. I’ve tried to lose weight & the struggle is bad.
Lately I’ve been having a lot of bad days, I get really down and depressed, a lot of that is because I do have depression but refuse medicine cause I can control it, and my son has been a terror lately. But every so often I’ll be sitting on the couch working on projects and I’ll pick up my phone and just start taking pictures of myself and laugh at them and actually like them. I feel like I’m beautiful and no matter what I am completely happy, but then a few days later it goes away. It’s really tough trying to overcome something you’ve dealt with for a very long time.
I know I’m getting better at starting to love myself and see myself as a good and beautiful person, but it’s a progress that’s going to take sometime. I know I may sound crazy with this post but everyone’s life is different and mine is definitely different.
Here are a few of my photos I’ve taken on days when I feel positive about myself, and I’ve had a good laugh over them every time I look at them. I will admit I’ve gotten better with feeling positive but it will always be a struggle.
