Mad Crabby Baby...


#4 is having a melt down of sorts... She has a runny nose... one of those change in the weather colds that we seem to catch whenever the weather starts to cool down... On top of that, she's dealing with her jealousy issues with the new baby... As I was concerned might happen, she took a little bit of a dive on her potty training, where I could take her around town or to any one's house and she would behave perfectly, using the potty and staying dry. But after we got home, suddenly she wet everything I put on her, continuously, no matter how much we would remind her or try to encourage and reward her...

Thankfully, the past few days have been an improvement. However, NOW she tends to INSIST on ME taking her to the bathroom most of the time. On occasion she will allow her dad and SOMETIMES even her siblings to take her. But if I'm holding the baby, I'm the only one... *sigh* makes for some tricky maneuvering... But hopefully this will all work itself out in another week or two... In the meantime it's back to school tomorrow for a short week, as we prepare for Thanksgiving on Thursday.

Please say a prayer that between the Zicam and some extra rest we can all get past the colds in time for the holiday festivities, and then Sam's baptism will be next Sunday morning at Mass. Yea!!

Oh geez, that sounds tough. I'll be keeping you in my prayers.

As for the colds, I've found that a humidifier helps enormously w/ colds and the changing weather. I really had no idea what I was missing out on.
