Manic Monday

Well apparently today was a killer day outside...I missed it. James was up early and I was spent for the rest of the day. Nothing like a 13 hour headache to kill the first nice day in ages. Oh well!

Megan learned that Mom isn't a idiot today. Came home "STARVING" and wanted more than her normal after school snack because she didn't get lunch today, unfortunately she used the same excuse she did on Friday...teacher kept the entire class because Tom (the bad kid) was being bad. Well I said I would call teacher because we pay for her lunch and its important for her to eat her lunch...well Megan then decided to fess up to just wanting more of a snack. She did say it was a dumb thing to lie about after we talked. Brat child.

Well that it for now...once my head gets back to normal I am sure I will have much more interesting things to say!

6 year olds and Cholesterol Lipoprotein (a)

Yep...Megan's blood tests came back...all great except her Lipoprotein...this means we are being referred to a Pediatric Cholesterol Specialist in Oakland. As the Mom this is super scary, I have been worried about her diet for a while and especially so since I don't control her diet when she is with her Dad. Apparently something is not going well. The Dr suggested limiting her fat and sugar intake right away and increasing her vegetables as much as possible...this will be fun for a kid...but has to be done. It is so scary to think that my little one already has these issues...what have I done wrong? I hope we can fix this easily without too much trauma to Megan. I have yet to hear from the PCS (I am abbreviating Pediatric Cholesterol Specialist from now on) but hope to sometime tomorrow.

I'm bummed that this is a reality now.

Attempt 3!

Well this is my third official attempt at blogging, I get started and then get distracted. I am really going to try this time so my friends and family will actually read it! So here we go!

I guess I should just treat this as a journal. I'll get better with time right?!?

Today was a not so busy day, but leaving the house seems to make me feel like it was a busy day. I was up and out by 9:30 am (success with a 6 week old), we went to see Grandma Becky for a little while. She looks much better with out tubes in her nose and arms. Its hard to believe she is really as sick as she is when you see her, she is still so spunky.

After a trip to Grandmas James and I hit up good'ole Target for a few things and then had lunch with Daddy (aka Mike). James fell asleep on the way home and continues to sleep, I should be cleaning or something but this is more fun.

I'm making Shrimp Primavera for dinner tonight should be yummy. I really need to get back into cooking, I used to love trying new recipes but since we started the baby process last year I have had a hard time thinking of anything that sounds good or had the energy to make it. Things are begining to feel back to normal these days.

Ok I should finish this up, one final thought...being a Mother of two has been an adjustment. With Megan being 6 it is a lot of fun seeing her be so excited about her little brother, she is a lot of help and low maintainence compaired to her brother. James is getting a routine down and that helps, some predictability will be great for Mom. I have had a hard time readjusting to a baby and his needs, but he has offered some of his frist smiles this last week and makes the lack of sleep so worth it. I am bummed about the way my body looks, but yet am not doing anything about it...I need to get motivated...I'll find a skiny picture of myself and post it around the house that should do the trick!

Ok well that was long winded...that is what I get for not regularly jotting down my thoughts...I'll get better about this I think...maybe...hopefully!

Oh...Megan and James are the cuties pictured above.
