What a stressful place to be in. And kids, yeah, they will be kids (and why shouldn't they)? You are a saint to not have totally blown a gasket by now. Even though you are a guest, you shouldn't have to feel like you need to be everywhere at once.

We have similar issues here. Hubby has OCD, but has gotten better (a little) over the years. D has somewhat significant issues we are working on. Sigh... I know how it can get sometimes.

Being intimately familiar with this process, I would go the anon route myself. Even IF this person is legit and not a whackadoodle, there is more legal hurdles, and you may have a significant wait on your hands. I wish you all the best no matter what you decide! Hmmm, seems you and I are on a reverse polarity with our lives lately. :-) Click over here to learn about my new path

I was hoping there was a bit better news!! Hang in there. I hope the kiddos make a miraculous recovery very soon.

Carrie, are you in my head right now???? I feel like you just read my mind (long story, I can't blog about it but these thoughts play right into it). For me, guilt. Even when I shouldn't feel guilty.

I love books. I've been doing some reading lately too. It's a wonderful means to escape!

...and as time goes on, we still have so much in common. I haven't blogged about it, but we decided to save, save, save $ and pursue adoption in the future. Perhaps I can tap your brain when I am ready. I'm going to be 42 next month, and although we never will use birth control again... I cringe when acquaintences in passing think plain old sex will still work. Admittedly, when I run into a Mom over 40 touting that they had no intervention to get pg, I am wildly jealous. And, when I come across a very young lady (teen) at Target with a big belly, I really just want to ask if they wouldn't mind me adopting their child. Never gets easier. Not a bit. Yay squeaker!

Leaving the coffee would have sent me right over the edge! I'm trying to think what helped for D., and I do believe the Motrin helped more than the Tylenol. Good luck with the new nanny!

You don't need to be Cindy Lou all the time. I can say from personal experience (when I was a child) that it's very healthy for your kids to see the many sides of Mom. Fake it most of the time, but let yourself be sad a little too. And eat a lot... works for me.

Hugs to you sweetie. Giant ones.

I stumbled on your blog (fellow SVMoms contributor), and glad I did. My 6 yr old son was diagnosed with H1N1 last week... started getting better, and then (not 48 hours into a miraculous recovery) the fever was back, and the tiredness and coughing. I've been watching him like a hawk, but now we are into week 2 and I feel like he is in the same situation as your little one was. We're going to call the ped back tomorrow for guidance. I'm glad you family is on the mend. I hope we will be soon too!
