New Job, etc

We are still anxiously waiting for the 'certified letter' supposedly sent to us last week. That was Friday and today's mail has already come. Mail doesn't usually take so long, which makes me think they are once again lying to us. It doesn't matter. The lies are just like raindrops that hit the ground and soak in, disappearing immediately along with the million other raindrops/lies bombarding us. Who can focus on just one drop?

We are busy around here, planting and gardening, enjoying the one truly gorgeous time of year in south Texas. All of you who still have snow and cold weather? Check back with me in late July. We will be miserable with the heat and humidity. 

Poo Review: Ahren is loving being a baby. He happily crawls in bed each afternoon and takes a nap. He wears a diaper all the time. He even wants us to feed him. So far, no poo on the potty. If I ask him to choose, 'try and poo on the potty or take a nap', he gets mad but chooses the nap. I just keep reassuring him it's OK to poo, but he is in control of where he decides to put it and whether he is a baby or a big boy. I think we are in this for the long haul. At least we don't have so many poopy clothes to clean up. The odd thing is he still pee pees in the potty all day long. He is quite happy about that!

I started a new job on Monday and LOVE it!!! I asked to start out part time and they are fine with that. I plan on being part-time until the summer is over. I am just having too much fun with the kids to give it up right away. My new boss is totally supportive of that. I love the people I am working with and what I am doing. I consider myself enormously blessed, and all the credit goes to Candy. Girl, you are the bomb and I owe you!!!!!

I hate all the lying, they love to say things that make us happy or at least shut us up, and then nothing, it is amzing to me how they do this like its nothing. I wouldn't worry about the potty training I hear the same thing from so many people with boys, I swear it has something to do with the fact that they don't always site down like girls do. Take care.

Congrats on the new job!

As for the baby thing, I would let him just be a baby. Even though he was in a good foster situation, he still wasn't "their" baby. He needs to be "your" baby. It will pay off big time down the road. We did a whole big baby regression thing with Matthew last year. There's a label on my blog called "regression." It will bring up all the posts we wrote about regressing our boys. Best thing we've done, I tell you!!
