I'm sure I've mentioned before that sometimes all that goes through my head is static. Ben wonders how I can ignore the constant 'mommy' calls from 3 different children. Static. It's easy, really. And somehow I can still decipher between one that truly needs attention and one that doesn't, or the hacking/gurgling from Theodore that really means he needs suctioning and the one that's just noise. It's a temporary break from reality that can instantly be gone the second I sense trouble.

I don't know why I feel so inclined to write this because I'm not sure how it fits into what I'm going to say. But there you have it. Information for the general public I guess. Which I'm sure will be used against me one day. 

I really have no direction for this post. It's been a good week on the whole. Busy but good. My mind just isn't cooperating with me. I feel like there's a lot I want to say but can't form it into anything sensible (hence the first two paragraphs.) So bear with me as I sloppily give you some info in no particular order.

Rambo is doing much better! Yay! Tomorrow will be his last day of antibiotics and they kicked whatever he had right out of him. Woot!

He's learned something new:

He obviously didn't get like that himself, but he did hold himself there for as long as his legs were locked. I'm not sure how standing like that's going to benefit him.... Watch, he'll probably end up walking around like that instead of crawling. Just my luck. It would be hilarious.

Actually, he's learned two new things:

Yeah.... that's a lot of fun... going for the electronics. Every kids dream. Every parents nightmare.

I have cancelled two appointments for him in the last two weeks. I just couldn't talk myself into getting ready for them. He was sick and the weather was bad so thankfully I got to use that as an excuse. But this does kind of make me feel like a bad mother..... 

The puppy is doing really well and much better at the house training. Not perfect, but better. He's also growing extremely fast. I look at him and see a full grown German Shepherd sometimes. Crazy. 

I know there was something else I was going to say, but I can't think of it right now. I'm going to go ahead and post this before I reread or second guess it and delete it all. 

Enjoy my scatter brained-ness.... or not. 


  1. So I totally enjoyed ur post, as usual! Made me lol...for real, as usual. Also made me feel like I'm not alone and that static is okay! We knew that already didn't we! Xoxoxoxo m. <><

  2. scattered brained-ness accepted. You are a fine tuned mommy machine (as most of you mommies are), don't let a few unworthy kid screeches or cancelled routine appt's get you down. Sure your case is special, a "tad" more difficult. Sure your road isn't as well paved like most. But I promise you, you have plenty of teenager time coming your way to make you truly feel worthless. LOL Save those battles and your energy for them at that time. hehehe You rock and deserve any break you can get, even if it is a numb static feeling for 6 seconds when you are taking it. Enjoy...

  3. LOL, Dewey!! That link is my life completely!! Something tells me that you're right and I should enjoy now because the teenage years are going to be tricky, to say the least. Haha. I'll probably wish that "Mom mom mom mom.. Hi" was my biggest problem.

    Thanks, Max!! Glad I'm not alone!!
