BabbaCo Box #2

This is our second month of BabbaCo. The kids love getting the boxes already. This months theme is detectives. They've done all but one project. We will do fingerprinting on Sunday.
They also will continue with the online activities through the month. The book will probably get read quite a few times as well. Hope you enjoy your BabbaCo boxes!

Neurosurgery Appointment

Took Hezzie to his preop with his neurosurgeon today. They explained the surgery and recovery. He will have to have his hair washed everyday until he has a smooth scar. This won't be fun for someone who is facial and cranial sensitive.
Hezzie was excited to vote in the pumpkin decorating contest that the office had. We all got to vote.
I will stay with him in the hospital for the three or four days he will be there. I may have to bring extra pillows. I want to get Hezzie a big Lightening McQueen or Mater pillow before we go so he can snuggle. I hope it all pans out.
Keep him in prayer as, the surgery is just around the corner.

Sometimes I feel like I'm sort of participating in life. This pregnancy has taken a toll on me more than physically. Mentally and emotionally in spent. I'll be feeling really amazing, then I'll be down for awhile. I'm glad I'm in the downhill slope of it.

Hezekiah will be having his own life change soon. Neurosurgery, the outcome is not certain. Is it really for any kind of surgery? No, not really. I've been praying a lot for him. Praying that it doesn't linger in his memory like his foot surgery has.

Rainbow Baby Shower

On Sunday I had a rainbow themed babyshower. It was pretty fun, I will admit I was tired and sore. I had taken a nasty fall early in the day.
The food and the guests were great. I love watching everyone play the games. I just laugh.
The cake was made by Jimmy, Joaquin and was a hit.

The kids needed new shoes. Well, except Hezzie. He got some for his birthday. So this morning I took Joaquin and Waylon for some shoe shopping. If course this included socks. This evening I took Maggie and Dexter.
It's good to get out. Being in a wheelchair isn't awesome, but I grateful I have it.
We found a fortune telling fish at home, kids love it!
Today I am 31 weeks!

So my kids are in love with workbooks. Okay, I get that. I loved them when I was little. It's funny to me, and I just go along with it. I know a lot of Unschoolers find them repulsive and even restrict them from the home. However, of your kids like them, why hide them?

There are a lot if different ways people unschool. Most of it is hands on. We do lots of that kind of stuff. Not as much as when I was more mobile, but still.

I think Dexter might go to a regular high school next year. That's what he's saying now anyways. We shall see where this path leads us.

This weekend was busy, yet not rushed. I got out a bit with Jimmy. I got wheeled around in the wheelchair. Most of my walking is limited to the house. We did some thrifting and hit Big Lots.
My dad came over yesterday and helped with some things. Then he had lunch with us. It's always nice to see him. His birthday is coming up and I kind of would like to do a dinner for him.
My friend Angie and her mom came over for some baby shower planning.. Talked about games and such, and her moms tasty bean dip.
Today was a bit more thrifting and a Craigslist curb alert. I don't do much on these things except look and get wheeled around. Most of today was chillen at home while Jimmy was doing field day on the house. I was on my left side a lot in bed. I was on my feet a lot yesterday. I never knew how such little strict bed rest changed you physically.
I'm enjoying the new house oh so much. Life is good and I am blessed so much more than I've ever imagined.

Another Day

I spent most of yesterday in labor and delivery. My labor was again stopped. I went to the OB today, my little baby girl is doing great. She's over three pounds now.

The countdown to Hezekiahs surgery is ticking in my head. I love spending time with him. He prefers going through his day solo. That's Autism for you. He likes to watch videos on his iPad and play fruit ninja.

He got a package today. It was from my sister Charlotte. It was coloring books and stuff for his birthday. He likes the Color Wonder markers.

I'm working on decorations for my baby shower. I'm rather excited about it all.

I'm also decorating for fall...or rather trying to.

Ugh! It Has To Get Better

My mom brought over Hezzies birthday gifts today. He wasn't thrilled with the Batman pajamas, yet he is wearing them all day. He got these cool cars called Flip Force. They are pretty awesome.
Jimmy has been grouchy and overwhelmed with everything. Although, I have tried to make it easy. I am trying to make it to where he only had to sweep and mop when he gets home, and maybe make dinner. It's not enough though. Well, that's how I feel. When he cycles it's right on me. I wish he'd have time for meetings or something. I am worried the stress will make him just not come home one day. If that happens, I'll deal. I won't be happy, but I will deal.
I do not expect people to feel sorry for me, or hate my husband. I'm
just frustrated. I am not supposed to do anything. I still do some things though. I hate not being able to have sex. This is when I think a Devi d wife would come in handy for Jimmy or a surrogate.
I am over these women on boards saying that if they can't get satisfied why should their man be able to? How about to stabilize their mood, maybe it's just me. A mothers helper would be great. Or a giant nanny dog that makes sure they don't make messes.
The kids ES for school is on my last nerve. She doesn't call, I'm constantly calling her to get answers. Frustrating and I may just withdrawal them, and let Dexter enroll next year.
On a good not, I'm not behind on laundry. The kids bring it to me, I sort it out and hang thing on hangers. They put it away. The house is cleans d my animals seem happy. Tomorrow I have a friend coming over to visit. My first real visitor. Just to visit. Yes, I'm starved for adult interaction.

I'll learn to be happy in my circumstance.

Been Too Long

I'm on bedrest. Between that and Hezzies upcoming surgery in November, everyone seems to be on edge. I try and do things here and there, too no avail it's not enough. I feel judged and like a burden to my family. I have no help. Not that I expected help, just a bit jealous of mommas who get meals brought to them and visitors. I'm feeling isolated. I'm feeling horrible and am blogging from my iPhone in bed. It's dark in my room. I'm trying to make the best of it, and right now I just can't muster up the positivity. Snide remarks feel the air and kids just want to be kids.
I want smoothies for energy and was asked why do I need energy on bedrest? To feel better.
The doctor took me off my medicine. So I've been having contractions off and all day. More so this afternoon and this evening. My mouth hurts from the ulcers the medicine induced inside of it. I'm hoping when this season is over, love will fill the air again.
