And I've Got Nothing :S

Really, it's empty. There is so much swirling up there, that it's empty. I cannot possibly write it all down because by the time I get to it, I forgot what I wanted to write.

This is your brain...




This is your brain on four children...




Wonder why Michelle Duggar has her older kids paired up with the younger children? Take another look at the brain on four children above. Now multiply that by how many other kids she has. The woman could not possibly function without the help. Plus it is a great form of birth control for the older ones. Truly. I know. My eldest has already told me he's never having children. At least not until he's much much older. (insert evil smirk here)

My children are driving me batty lately. My daughter has become more and more defiant, but extremely needy. I'm trying to be more consistent, yet, she finds ways. She's a sneaky little dudette. She waits until I am busy with L, nursing, or feeding. Or wait for it, in the bathroom. Then she takes off out of the house. Whenever, it is time to come in the house, she runs down the street so I have to run after her. She's screaming "No", while L laughs his arse off as I book it after her with him in a football hold. Today she told me she was gonna punch me and spit on my couch. Nice. I'm trying to spend a little more time with her. It's really hard as L is still pretty needy being only seven months old.

E is just whiney. Cries at the drop of a hat. Continually cries as as his sister beats him up. He is really helpful when she is being crazy. He's been helping clean up without me asking too which is nice. He talks a lot about his imaginary friend Nicolae. That is a whole post on it's own. He comes up with the craziest things though. Today he told me, "I'm gonna get married at 17 and then have facebook." I'm not sure what being married and facebook have to do with each other, but waiting until he's 17 to use it works for me. When asked what he was going to be when he grows up a few weeks ago, he told us, "I'm gonna grow up." Well then, that is great. Not totally sure what else that includes, but we were not getting anymore information out of him as he changed the subject.

L is just cranky. He's doing well playing on his own for longer periods. He's just not happy. I'm not sure if he's teething or not. No teeth anyways. Yes, he still looks like an old man, all gums. Not sure if you all remember but we went to the Children Hospital to get an EEG done. The doctor called yesterday and gave us the DL on that one. Apparently they are rated 0-5. 0 the best, 5 the worst. L was at a 1. The pediatrician said that he was abnormal. They saw some clouding over, but they were not sure if it was because he was so drowsy or not. Okay, well they were the ones that wanted me to keep the kid awake and him that tired. 1 obviously is not good, but they did not see any epileptic happenings so that is good. Seeing as it does run in the family they want me to keep an eye on him. If things happen more frequently again, I'm to inform the pediatrician and we'd get him in to get tested again. I'm happy to note that there has been nothing that I have noticed since a week before the test.

As for me, I'm just trying to stay offline more, get rest and spend more time with the kidlets outside in the great weather. My bid to tame A and her temperment. And quite possibly my own. Still trying to figure out how this new attempt on my part is making me even more tired than before. I think the brain on four children needs to be revamped. It's simply not crazy enough for this household.

  2. That 'brain on 4 kids' picture is hilarious, and so is your son, talking about marriage and Facebook at 17! Sorry you're going thru a bit of a rough patch. Life with kids is always a rollercoaster, filled with ups and downs!

  4. Best picture analogy ever! What about my brain on 2 kids, 1 toddler, 1 newborn, no sleep, and cranky husband? Oh my gosh, I think it's turned to jello!

  5. Love your brain pic. Seriously, you need hook latches high up on each exit door. The kind that not only hooks over the eyebolt, but latches, so a little kid can't climb on a chair and push it out of the bolt with a stick. Or, there's always the dead bolt that works with a key, both inside and out, but I would probably lose the key if I had little ones around. I'm just saying that being able to contain her within the house is a very good thing, and her trying all the time to get out may not be so temporary.
    A friend of mine took the door knob right off of the back door of her house, and to get out they had to stick a huge screwdriver into the doorknob hole, and turn it. Her kid was such an escape artist, it was not funny. He's now 18, and still very interesting, lol. She had to keep him harnessed into a stroller, buckled into his carseat, or harnessed and on a walking lead, or he would be right out into the street. Or he would be doing things like plugging in the display lawn mower at Home Depot and turning it on. Once, she caught him just before he took a baseball bat to a pyramid display of stemware. He erases several days worth of OHIP billings at his doctor's office, in seconds. So, maybe A is not bad, relatively speaking!

  8. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative
    and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i'm very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
