A Bad Case of the Mondays

I heard her is hard not to when the Pack-n-Play is located just a few feet from my head. I glanced at the clock and realized I only had 30 minutes before my alarm went off and "Mission Impossible" began. (As a refresher that is the morning routine where I attempt to get out of the room and ready for work without waking the baby) I thought I might get back to bed for 10-15 minutes or so...

That was before I heard it...

The "up the back" blowout...that occurred while she was in my arms. Lovely.

Even after changing her diaper...and clothes...and the changing pad...I had hope.

Until the third diaper. Sigh.

Side note: We use cloth diapers by day and disposables at night. Speaking of which it is time to place yet another order...

I was fortunate to get everything done yesterday that I needed to. The Irishman was great and did all the shopping. Nana took the baby for a walk. I graded papers and planned lessons. Not fun, but it is done!

Best of all, the Irishman bought me these at Costco yesterday. I may or may not have added them to the list with a coupon attached...

If this morning is any indication the four pounds of goodness they may not be enough to get me through the week!


All complaining aside...please pray for my friend Mauree. Her youngest son, Silas has had tummy issues for the last several months. They had some blood work that didn't look right on Friday and then Saturday they rushed him to Little Rock with a suspected mass in the abdomen. Yesterday the oncologist said there is no mass (thank God!) and he is seeing some GI specialist now to try to get to the bottom of this.

Mauree is one of the sweetest people I know. We had pre-cal together in high school but I didn't really get to know her until college. She was the only person from home at the University of Arkansas and she became my Kappa Delta big sister. She has always been a good friend..she sent me a couple of supportive e-mails a few weeks back when Caitlin wasn't taking the bottle. (Including a super sweet one addressed to Caitlin herself!) She is a wonderful mommy to three little boys.

So...please pray for Silas and the Nantze family!

I'm sorry about "the Mondays". I hate those, too. I'll keep Mauree and her little boy in my prayers. Keep us updated.

Rylee is seeing a GI specialist right now too so I feel her pain and fear. I hope everything is okay!
