I returned from my weekend trip and both hubs and child were still alive, and the dog, too! All with minimal damage, although drama did occur.
Sweet Pea went from explosive diarrhea to total back-up. Hubs kinda freaked after 24 hours of no poop. Of course he did what we both do, asked jeeves, and was instructed to try some karo syrup and prune juice. ewww.
After both of those failed, he sucked it up and took the boy to the pharmacy where he purchased glycerin enemas. Boy did that work!
His comment was 'that was the most disgusting thing I have ever done or experienced in my life'.

After a trip to the pediatrician and some blood work, we've found out Sweet Pea is a-OK. With SEN you never know, so it was a relief.....
We're finally sleeping better at night. Yes, we, as I am the one up with him while hubs gets some z's before having to head out to work every day.
Since I am not a nap person (makes me more tired and I never seem to wake up from them) I am going to bed as close to 8:00 as I can.
Then I sleep in the guest room after the babe wakes up. Thus hubs and I are not exactly spending much time together.
In a way I laugh because I think about how when you have a baby they tell you no sex for 6 weeks.
So I didn't even HAVE the baby, who is almost 12 weeks, and I am too tired to even THINK about sex! Hell, we hardly even see each other, don't sleep in the same bed, and I go to bed so damn early.... Just sayin!
Our next challenge is to get Sweet Pea more used to the car seat. I have to time our outings (what few there have been) around nap time. If he's not sleeping, and he sees you, he screams. It's as though he's trying to tell you that there's no reason he should be in there when you are RIGHT THERE and could/should be holding him.
I have gotten quite skilled at the one handed cart pushing and grocery shopping~
In the next week I hope to catch up with the blogs I read and the bloggers who have lent me their support. I feel so tired these days I rarely get my ass off the couch! But we'll get there. Just need to get reacquainted with this baby baby thing.
We've already discussed if this one goes, we are upping our age range to at least 6 months.
I am convinced I have experienced the newborn thing and am quite over it.
I am looking forward to a time when Sweet Pea is able to interact, go to library time, and so on. I was loving the boy's changes to these stages and am finding it difficult to go backwards.
But we'll get there.
