Imagine, if you will, a two year old with a beard. Oh yeah, it's that bad. And no, he will not even hold still. BUT he's so cute! I have a huge pad around his neck, another one on his lap and still another one on the floor. But by the time I am finished we both have hair and whiskers all over us. THEN he does not EVEN want to get into the shower. I finally persuade him by making him understand that he will be itchy - itchy - itchy if he does not get in the shower and rinse off all that hair.
After potty time and the brushing of the teeth he is FINALLY ready to diaper, dress and put to bed. It usually takes 2&1/2 to 3 hours for the whole ordeal. And guess what, I get to do it again
in a few days. Well, the hair cut and shave and eyebrow trim in about two to three weeks. The rest is every day.
Tomorrow my sister, Glenda will be bringing Trammell and me a set of twin BEDS!!!! Her father-in-law, Herb Ballentine, is giving us the beds with everything that goes with them.
See, I had to sell my DREAM bedroom suit a couple of months ago. I had a tooth that kept getting infected and then the infection got into my bloodstream. I was sooooo SICK! ( But as you Moms know, we get NO SICK DAYS)
The cheapest place I could find to help me was Piedmont Dental - Affordable Dentures. They pulled the tooth and made a partial for $500.00. It would have cost between 1500.00 and 2100.00 at all of the dentist offices I called, just to save the tooth. ONE SMALL "FRONT" TOOTH!!!! HOW do dentist SLEEP AT NIGHT.
(IN VERY EXPENSIVE BEDS) LOL.
Anyway - the partial will have to do until 2014 when the girl who bought our house will pay us the balance. We will then be able to buy a home, pay off some doctor bills and I'll be able get GET A TOOTH! YEAH! LOL
ANYWAY - Herb is sending use two twin beds. Trammell, who has been sleeping on a cot for
the past 8 months will have one for his room and I will no longer have to sleep on the sofa, which is really not that bad. The other one goes in my room. David, of course, who is bed ridden, sleeps in a hospital bed.
Glenda is also going to let us use one of her older TVs so I will have a TV in my room for the Baby Monitor I have for David. That's how I keep an eye on him at night.
I get up every 3 hours to check his diaper but other times I just open my eyes to check the monitor and make sure he is OK. If his eyes are open I go in to make sure he's not afraid or to turn his cartoons on until he falls back to sleep. Very now and then he goes psychotic at night. I have to keep an eye on him all night then.
Speaking of sleep - I'd better try and get some - it's 10:15pm. I'm going to check a diaper and hit the SOFA (for the last night!!!) GOODNIGHT ALL!
