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.
