People say he looks like Ash all the time. And he does! And I should probably start praying NOW that I wont be that mother in law. I already squish his cheeks and tell him he can live with me forever. For some reason, I feel like Im raising my girls to be independent and very capable. And I feel like they already are - I can tell they will be very able to care for themselves. But Little Man? I keep thinking, he NEEDS me! I indulge that a little, because he was a surprise baby, and having a boy was an almost bigger surprise, so Im enjoying that. But I know Im going to be teaching him to be capable, independent, and a loving husband, too... To: crystal0901@hotmail.com

Dayna, believe it or not I couldnt believe he was so white. ;) And when he told me he doesnt tan I went so far as to try to prove him wrong bc I just couldnt believe it. An hour after dousing him in baby oil (!) and laying out with him, the poor man was a lobster! He looked at me, all pink and wincing and just said, See, I told you. How can you NOT date someone who will go through that for you? To: crystal0901@hotmail.com

Everyone gets the impression that I have immaculate floors and I DO NOT HAVE IMMACULATE FLOORS - by any stretch. I get a flood of light in my kitchen in the afternoon and between the white walls and cabinets and all the light, it reflects off of the floor enough that you can't see all the milk stains and crumbs in the cracks in my pictures. In real life, though, you can see it all almost too well for the same reason - all that light. You would laugh if you actually saw my floors...in fact, I think I discovered a pee stain this afternoon. ;) To: crystal0901@hotmail.com Subject: [My Longest Year] Elizabeth submitted a comment to 'the blankie game'.

I'm pretty sure our library has a program where all you have to do is put in a request for an item and they'll stock it. The thing is, I've used it before and it can take anywhere from weeks to months to get it in - and in the end I'm looking for an entire shelf to choose from, not a specific cd to rent for two weeks. BUT, having said that, I'm sure they would be willing to at least START stocking them if I were to just ask. So I will definitely try that before getting into too much a huff. ;) ITo: crystal0901@hotmail.com Subject: [My Longest Year] Misty.Creek submitted a comment to 'friday find: audible.com & audiblekids.com'.

As a librarian in a former life (before kiddies), we always got what the public wanted unless it was out of print or impossible. So, Crystal, if your local little library doesn't have books on CD that you want, talk to the children's librarian and put in a formal request. I'm sure you're not the only parent wanting/needing that resource. Commenter name: Misty.Creek Commenter email: misty.creek1@gmail.com IP address: 74.140.4.44 Authentication: None Enjoy!

A new comment from “Jen” was received on the post “losing independence” of the blog “My Longest Year”. Comment: Crystal, I'm chiming in so late, sorry! Not sure if you ever knew...but I'm a Physical Therapist. I work with elderly folks and I can tell you that a broken hip does not have to be the beginning of the end. :-) They can definitely move back home, but it is of utmost importance to have someone (a physical therapist, occupational therapist, RN) do a home evaluation to see what needs to be done to make the home safe. Things such as: removing throw rugs, moving phone cords, electrical cords, and furniture out of the flow of traffic. Installing grab bars in bathtubs / shower stalls, as well as non-slip pads. Ordering raised toilet seats and shower seats (this should be done prior to leaving the rehab hospital), for the return home. A home health aide can come to the home and help cook simple meals and do light house cleaning 1-5 days a week, and it's fairly affordable. I think it's important that they both stay as active as possible, and have someone "safe" to talk to their feelings about. Most folks don't want to "burden" a family member with the feelings that come along with aging and the accompanying issues. Hope this helps!!

I'm glad you've found some of the older posts a bit comforting. You will be surprised at how strong you became when your family is finally on the other side of this deployment.

My husband has been deployed for 9 months now and I am still adjusting to being without him and being a mom to our 9 month old son(my husband left the day after he was born). Your blog posts from that time in your families life brings up emotions that I sometimes would rather not face, but it also helps me know that this will be over soon and we can be a "normal" family again. THanks again and your family is beautiful!

He's so grown! Is little man able to use it very well? My oldest started using the internet pretty much by herself (pbskids.org exclusively) at around 20-24 months. Its amazing how easily she picked it up and learned to navigate and play games. I think some video games can be a healthy medium, just as TV can be - because its interactive. I used to say in my workshops that the TV box by itself isn't dangerous, its the way people consume it that this. We have to approach everything in life with balance and purpose. They're adorable.
