  1. More bad news from the eye doctor

    I took Jillian back for a follow-up today at the eye doctor. Apparently her in turn is getting worse which is atypical for this point following surgery. The glasses that she prescribed at Jillian's last visit are helping at distance, but not correcting the problem at near. The doctor has now prescribed bifocals. If the bifocals don't correct the problem Jillian will need another surgery within the next year. If the bifocals do help than we have to watch and wait. According to the doctor ...

  3. A couple of big "firsts" this week

    On Sunday night Jillian had her first sleepover. It was one of our very best friends' 3 year old dd. She slept on the trundle in Jillian's room and they had such a good time! They were actually pretty good, but I had to yell at them to go back to bed when they got up at 4:45am! They actually did! I know I am going to be getting alot more requests for sleepovers in the future......

    Today Sari made pee-pee in the potty for the first time. She has woken up ...

  4. The kid doesn't catch a break!

    Today I took Jillian back to the surgeon because her belly button hasn't been looking too great. After her surgery in September (umbilical hernia repair) it looked pretty good. She was so proud of her pretty new "inny" belly button. A few weeks later we started to notice that her belly button had popped back out. I asked the pediatrician about it when we were there for something else. She looked at it and said that she had actually never seen a belly button that had been ...

  6. My story

    Monday morning dh and I spoke to our nanny about some of the issues we've been having. We told her how upset we were about the bathroom, especially since she didn't tell us about it. I also mentioned the safety issues with the Pine Sol left in the bathroom and leaving the oven on. I didn't even mention anything about the computer or some of the other things that have bothered me. I was not happy with her response about how the bathroom incident occurred, and I pretty much let her know that in ...

  8. After last week it's amazing I still have a job

    After another week of h*ll on Thursday I finally told the partner I work for that I hate this job and I'm thinking of quiting. To make a long story short, she told me she really likes my work and wants me to stay. I told her that I can't spend 10+ hours a day away from my children to be miserable. If I am going to be there I have to want to be there and enjoy what I am doing. At the end of the day she told me she had spoken to the managing partner and he told her to do whatever she has to do ...

  9. Surgery Update

    Jillian went back to the eye doctor yesterday and we got more bad news. Apparently, her eyes are crossing and it is worse than it was 2 weeks after the surgery. The doctor gave me a whole lot of technical information, but the long and the short of it is that Jillian will need to wear glasses again - maybe forever. The concern is that she will eventually need another surgery, but the doctor said that her problem at its current stage cannot be surgically corrected. This time the lenses will be ...

  10. So far, this week isn't any better

    As if my accident last week wasn't bad enough, we just discovered that someone hit my parked car and broke the other review mirror. I'm not sure when it happened, but I'm assuming it was today. My car won't be fixed until next week so we had it parked in the street in front of our house. I don't know how someone hits a parked car and leaves the scene without so much as a note.

    Well, it looks like my office knew exactly what they were doing when they canned my friend ...
