Jadyn Funny

Let me first start by saying that Jadyn is aware that she has 2 Mommies and a Donor. She isn't exactly sure WHERE the Donor steps in and what he I just tell her that he gave a piece of his body to help make her.
A few days ago JJ and her friend Missy were playing in her little pool. They wanted to play house. So, JJ played the baby and Missy played the Mommy for a little while. It then came time to switch roles. Missy says "Ok I will be the baby now and you be the Mommy." Jadyn then exclaims " NO, you be the baby and I Will be the Donor."............


Yesterday we were at McDonald's Play place by our house. Jadyn is couting the kids.
"Hey Mommy ,look, 1.....2....3...... kids."
" Good Job JJ".
" And Mommy there is 1....2......3...... Donors."
I had to explain that we are parents... not donors..... Children don't usually interact with their

"Why does JJ have TWo Mommies??"

Our Little neighbor boy Jerrod(3) and his Mommy had a conversation like this ( Teri is the mom's name).
J: " Mommy, why does JJ have two mommies?"
T: Well, That is just the way it is."
J: "Where is the daddy?"
T: "There is no daddy Jerrod, just two mommies."
J: " They can go buy a Daddy."

After Teri told me the conversation with her son I started to question him a little.....

Me: " Hey Jerrod, Where exactly is there a Daddy store? Have you ever seen one?"
J: "No".
Me: " Hmmmmm, I wonder where we can get a daddy then?"
J: " You can have my daddy because I want Two mommies.".......

Updates on Us :-)

Everything here is going well :-) Jadyn is FINALLY pooping on the potty. Just when I thought I might possibly believe she would really go to high school using a diaper to poop..... she got it!! Why does it always seem just when I think I have finally had enough she starts doing what I want her to do?? She just knows these things, I swear!

Last week Jadyn and I went to Tractor Supply to get some bird food and some seeds so I could start a little garden with J. They had some baby chicks and ducks in the store. They were so cute and Jadyn just couldn't get enough. Jadyn was standing there looking at the cute little birds when she decided to touch the heat lamp would be a fantastic idea. She received burns to 3 of her fingers. My first thought was to get her out of the store and get something cold on it. AND That is just what I did. I called her doctor and they told me just to bandage it after all of the blistering was done. I then decided I better call Tractor Supply and let them know that they need to cover those heat lamps if they are going to be keeping them in a child's reach. The manager acted like a complete Doodah..... " Well. most of the heat lamps are covered." Well idiot, MOST is obviously not good enough.
I then called the corporate offices. All I wanted was to make sure they keep the lamps covered so no more bitty fingers get scorched. I just wanted to call this to their attention before it happened to another child. I know A LOT of people are sue happy. They are pretty lucky they came across me....... I have better things to do than to sit in a court room over something as minor as this. If it would have been her face or was going to cause drastic scarring that would be a whole other issue.
Anyway, Jadyn is healing up nicely and almost all of the blistering had reabsorbed already!! 'Tractor Supply is sending her a $25.00 gift card. They really didn't have to. I just don't want any more baby fingers to get burned.
Sue is falling to She had a groin injury way back in November?!?! Hell, I don't remember when it was. She is still having pain from that and is scheduled to go see a surgeon on Wednesday. She is also suffering from a pretty painful case of tennis elbow right now. So she is about as helpful as a rock right It is no fault of her own so I guess I will keep her around for a little longer :-)

Conversations with Jadyn

On the way home this evening Jadyn told me she had TWO Brothers. This started the conversation:
Me: Oh? Who are they?"
Jadyn: "Teppo and Tyson."
Me: "Did you know you actually do have bothers and sisters? They are your Donor siblings. Remember when I told you about you have two mommies and a donor? Well, these kids have the same donor as you."
Jadyn: "Mommy? Remember when you told me if I poop on the potty I could get a Donor Bike?"
Me: Ok, this conversation went well!"



Some Cute things Jadyn says:

Hot Sudge Funday ( Hot Fudge Sunday )
Hostable ( Hospital )
Brown Milk (Chocolate Milk)


A Song Jadyn was singing in the tub the other day:
"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Like a diamond in the sky
I want Mom to wash my hair
I don't want to go to school
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Like a Diamond in the Sky"

Things I say daily over and over and over......

"Stop It!"
"Pick it up!"
"Stop picking your nose!"
"Get your fingers out of your butt!"
"Go wash your hands!"
"Put your clothes back on!"
"Go atleast put underwear on!"
"Would you PLEASE stop going outside naked!"
"Quit putting your junk on my desk!"
"Stop playing in the water!"
"Soap isn't free you know!"
"The puppy has your toy!"
"Stop putting water in all of your little cooking things. They just get spilled all over the floor!"
"Go find a towel!"
"Would you PLEASE just listen to me?!?!?!"
"I told you that was going to happen. If you would listen we could have avoided that fall/injury!"
"Leave my boobs alone. They are not yours to poke, slap, pinch or smack."
"Could I PLEASE just go to the bathroom by myself ONE time today?"

There are several more but these I thinbk are the ones I have used so far today and it isn't even 11:00 yet!!!!

The Importance of walking.....

The Importance of Walking.
Walking can add minutes to your life.
This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month.
My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old and we don't know where he is.
I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.
I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing..
I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.
Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.
The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'
If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years,...... just getting over the hill.
We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine.

The Great Hunter

I knew Teppo was going to be a special pup the minute I laid my eyes on him. 8 weeks old and already showing up the big dogs............ If you can't run with the puppy... stay on the porch....haha!!

Introducing Teppo Toblerone....

Here is our new little family member, Teppo ( a Sabre Hockey player) Toblerone ( A chocolate candy bar). He is such a sweet baby boy! He has that yummy puppy breath. He sleeps more than he is awake right now. He is like having a
Teppo is doing well at going potty outside. I am sure it helps we take him every hour or so. I take him 1-2 times in the night too. We have been quite busy since we picked him up on Saturday.
So, Here he is:

It's Time...... It's really really time......

I got the call tonight that our little guy is ready to come home to us :-) We have plans to go pick him up on Saturday. My mom and nephew are coming up Saturday morning . My mom wanted to see the expression on Jadyn's face when we tell her he is hers. We canit wait!!

Our New "Dude"

I went to go visit our new little baby today. He is 6 weeks old. He isn't quite ready to come to his forever home yet. He isn't eating as well as he should be. He eats good, just not real good. So, I took a few photos of him.
The little girl holding him in the one photo is the "little owner" of the puppies. She is such a riot!! The pup is a little wet in his photos. He just got a little bath before I got there.

First Dentist Appointment

Jadyn had her first dentist appointment today....... I know, a little late, huh?? I suppose it isn;t to bad though seeing as though she didn't have all of her teeth until she was almost 3...haha!! She made out well..... No cavities..... She does have a "tiny discolored" spot on one of her teeth but it could be nothing. I guess if it doesn't change by her next appointment they won't worry about it. She got her teeth cleaned, flossed and a flouride treatment.She got a new toothbrush (Tow Mater)..... bringing her grand total up to 7 toothbrushes in the She got some yummy crest kids bubble gum toothpaste and a Princess flosser.Since Jadyn did so well she got to choose where she went to lunch today ( We had to wait 30 minutes because the flouride has to sit on their teeth that long before they can eat or drink.) She chose Pizza Hut!! Yummo.....

A new baby........

Ok, so it isn't a HUMAN baby but it is still a baby. I went and put a deposit on a chocolate lab puppy on Saturday. We have his name picked out already BUT we are not sharing that info until we post a photo of him. He is 5 weeks old so, we still have to wait 3 weeks to get him. He is such a cute little honey boy!!

Oh yes, and we are NOT telling Jadyn until we go pick him up......... or I will not hear the end of it for 3

Nothing New

There isn't really anything new to report. Life is boring right now......... I am sick of the cold and the winter already. We only have about 3 months left before it gets at least in the 50's. No wonder so many people I know are on Living in the North isn't always fun, but, it sure beats tornadoes and hurricanes!!!

Jadyn is good. She has had a few weird episodes of throwing up. Friday morning she woke up and threw up all over. She was then fine the rest of the day. She did the same thing yesterday. I wonder if it has anything to do with reflux or indigestion?? I guess if it continues we shall have to ring a call in to the Dr. Besides this, she is well. She has grown like an inch in the last month. She was short and stubby for a LONG time. She is actually starting to get some legs on her now....ha!!

Sue should be buying herself a new (used) car in the next few weeks. We are all pretty stoked about it. Now, Jadyn and I won't have to get up early to take Moma to work. Jadyn's new princess bed should be here soon too!! It was a special order and they said it would take 6-8 weeks. I think we are nearing that sometime soon........

See, I told ya, nothing real new to report......

Super Jadyn To The Rescue

I just discovered this website. They make super hero capes. Not just any super hero cape though... REAL ONES :-) I had to order Jadyn the princess one. 10% of all of the proceeds go to a charity AND you can also donate a cape to sick and needy children.
For me I know there is nothing like feeding a child's imagination. I LOVE watching Jadyn and her imaginative play. She is so funny!! When she grows up all of her magic and imaginative play will be no more. So, I feed it as much as I can right now. I remember believing I was a super hero. I was so in to it.
Here are some photos of Jadyn's super hero suit. They are a little expensive but there is no price for an imagination.

The Man of THE House.....

The husband had just finished reading a new book entitled,"You Can Be THE Man Of Your House."

He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced,
"From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is Law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished eating my meal,
you will serve me a sumptuous dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me
and we will have the kind of sex that I want.
Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will wash my back
and towel me dry and bring me my robe. Then, you will massage my feet and hands.
Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my hair?"

The wife replied, "The fuckin' funeral director would be my first guess."

Jadyn's new bed

As some as you may or may not know or may or may not care Jadyn has slept with me for the past 2 years. We were living in an apartment that wouldn't allow us to get to her if there were a fire. So we let her be comfortable in our bed once she out grew her crib ( that was also in our room).
Well now we have moved to a house and she can have her OWN BIG GIRL room now. So, of course she has to have her own big girl bed. She told me she would like a princess bed. Well LOOK what she is getting:

I think I am just as excited as she Wer are getting the full size bed because it will grow with her. You can eventually remove all of the princess stuff and add other things. Like a higher lift, a desk, etc etc.

Busy Busy weekend

We had a pretty busy weekend. We bought a used stackable washer and dryer from an older lady. Saturday we went to go pick it up. Thank God for our friend Ann because Sue and I could have never done it by ourselves. The washer and dryer are like brand new. We are so happy to finally NOT have to get quarters to do our laundry. The thing has run non stop since yesterday. I think we might be in love....haha!! We also got a ladder from my dad when we were home last weekend. Ann also helped us take a ton of things up to the attic! Poor Ann, she always get recruited when we need
Today I spent at least 4 hours in my bedroom putting things away, rearranging and cleaning. We are still a little out of sorts from when we moved here. I feel like I finally made quite a bit of progress around here. I also went outside ad burned a ton of paper and boxes. Jadyn, Moma and Tyson ( the dog) ran around and played in the snow while I was burning boxes.
Although our house still looks like it is quite possible a tornado came through..... we are getting there. We are almost finally all settled in. It sucks moving so close to the holidays. We have had NO time to do anything. I am so glad things are finally looking good :-)

I can't believe people........

I posted on my blogs, craigslist and freecycle asking for measily one yard pieces of fabric to make blankets and quilts for needy sick children. NOT ONE person has stood up to donate 1 yard of child friendly fabric or ONE unused receiving blanket. Not ONE person........ that is sad...... seriously......

Wanted: one yard measurements of fabric

I am in need of one yard measurements of fabric. I need 100% cotton, flannelette, or cotton knits. I am in the process of making things for charities. I thought perhaps if you have any of these fabrics laying around unwanted I will be very very happy to take them.

I also will take any unused receiving blankets.

I am willing to pay the shipping.

Please pass it along!!!

I'm not done, I can't be, I am only 32

I keep have reoccurring dreams that I am either pregnant, breastfeeding or have a newborn baby. I have them ALL. THE. TIME. I wake up feeling all happy and fuzzy! Then reality hits. I don't have another. Don't get me wrong. I am so happy I have Jadyn. I am very very very thankful for her.
I NEED another one. I can't give up yet. I am not even at the age where I need to stop yet. I still have 10 years easily to keep trying. Maybe it is time to start trying again? I do KNOW I will not do injections or Invitro again. To expensive and time consuming. Not to mention STRESSFUL!
I am probably crazy to even consider trying again. What if I am wasting my time and money AGAIN? Do I really need the disappointment over and over and over again....again?? Was the psychic right that I would never physically carry my own child again? What if she was right? What if psychics are real? Time can change your future, right? Just because your future is headed one direction at any given time doesn't mean it can't change........right? right??
I must be stupid!

New Years Eve Party

Sue, Jadyn and I had a great time last night. We stayed home. Jadyn and I made chocolate covered strawberries. We also had crackers, cheese, tostitos, salsa and buffalo blue cheese dip. There were also chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter whoopie pies for the sweet tooth in us. Well, more Jadyn and I have the sweet tooth. Sue isn't so big on sweet stuff.
I rented ( pay-per-view) Kung Fu Panda for Jadyn to watch @ about 10:00 p.m. At about 11:30 we started watching the New Year's events on t.v. Jadyn made it until 12:00 to watch the ball drop. Sue served us wine ( sparkling white grape juice) and we brought in the New Year with a "Happy New Year", a cheers, and a kiss. It was rather kind of fun :-)
