It's our anniversary party today (business, not wedding, ha) so it'll be a long crazy day. Of course, it's chilly and cloudy and windy.. but hopefully the sun at least shows up this afternoon! Waiting for my parents to get here and then I'm heading over to set up my stuff!
Rainy and gross here, so no current plans to leave the house. M is being a terror and needs to chill. She will not stop crawling on me and over me. She will cling to my legs as I walk down the hallway. STAHP. I love you, child, but get out of my personal bubble space for 2 seconds!
A friend talked us into going to a haunted house tonight. EEK. I hate being scared. Another friend, who haaaaaaaaates clowns and haunted houses, will sit at the house while M sleeps. FX she passes out and doesn't make a peep.
Question: M had a yeast infection, which traveled to the crease between her leg and lady bits. We did Lotramin, per the pediatrician who diagnosed it at the 18-month appointment, and all was looking good... until last night. The area got raw and bled after bath time. Would you put some Neosporin or Vaseline on the area? Call the pedi? I was worried it was her diaper getting small and rubbinb, but she's in a size 4, which is 22-37lbs. She's 22lbs., so that can't be it... right? Ugh. Poor girl was hurting.

malvo I would try a bigger size just to make sure it doesn't rub raw too much. I would do newsprint then maybe Vaseline on top to protect. I now have e in size 6 diapers at night and 5 during the day until 5s are gone.

D was up at 615 this morning but then the best thing happened. We sat on the couch to drink milk and he climbed up on into my lap and just chilled. And if that wasn't winning the lottery, I always give him baby massages so he began to massage my knee! So just over here dying from all the sweetness that he's usually too busy for!
Anyways, soccer today and then my family is coming over for dinner tonight. Need to clean so bad.
We paid way too much money for this crazy lighted little mermaid bubble blower at Disneyland one night when V was losing it, but it has come in handy today. This is basically the only thing stopping the screaming and fussing. Three teeth coming in and we are not pleased. Forgot to mention it plays the Under the Sea song on loop. I kinda love it.
ladymike and graciest719- good luck today! malvo- I would use Vaseline to protect the raw area. Or we have been using aquaphor with good success after our awful yeast rash fiasco. We basically use it every change now. babys2015- It's going to warm up today here. I think I'm ready for fall temps though! maddisonrose- So sweet. C didn't really understand snuggling on the couch until he was about 2 or 3. Always too crazy and busy, but now he enjoys it

Tomorrow is my hb's birthday. We are having a late lunch with his family. Who knows who all will be there but we know his grandmother will be. He isn't looking forward to the meal any more then I am. The place we are going to is ehh as well. Haven't been in years before we moved but it is kinda in the middle and as far as we know grandma will eat there.
We went to a pumpkin patch this morning. It was super fun for the girls with all the things to do. A was a gem which was SO nice! She loved it all. Especially looking at the farm animals and the jump zone. Hopefully she takes a good nap.
Now we are relaxing before my H's grandparents, dad and aunt come over for dinner. R, my H and his aunt all have birthdays within 4 days of each other so we celebrate all together.
Definitely getting sick. Body aches and all that jazz. Not cool. I'm not being a super awesome high energy consultant today, but oh well. The good thing is I can just shut the doors and leave if it gets bad. No packing up to go home. But damn... I don't wanna be sick :-(
Took the kiddies to the pumpkin patch today with my mom, sis and her family. It was so fun but windier and colder than I thought! F had a ton of fun and was so cute with her little pumpkin
So, I should be starting any time but haven't! And C from my office is on a pretty close start date with me and just found out yesterday she is expecting her first! But why haven't I still started? I have a whomper headache and cheeks feel flushed (I've experienced this at the beginning of each previous pregnancy) but I have an IUD and h and I are certain we're done. Come on af!! Fx this yucky feeling is because AF is going to grace me with her presence!!!

ladymike - I hope that you feel better and that your event goes well! Free platform to sell LuLa is always a good thing
@megaugust10 - GL with lunch/dinner! Happy birthday to your H.
graciest719 - I've finally starting doing more events since I wasn't supposed to onboard until early September so I didn't book anything until October to get my feet wet. Now I'm looking at my calendar and asking myself wtf I got myself into. Hopefully it's a kick ass event though and it makes it worth it.
malvo - I feel ya on the clingy. Have fun tonight! I would be the friend at home watching M. Haha. And I would say definitely put Vaseline or some type of protectant between the diaper and skin. I would wonder if the diaper was too big/mobile and that's what the issue is but I'm not sure if snug is better than loose here. Regardless, FX it's short lived.
babys2015 - Enjoy the warmth! It's only 50* and cold and rainy and windy here today. We have fall. I'll send it your way.
maddisonrose - I LOVE toddler cuddles!! Hope that you have fun at soccer and with dinner!
sjep922 - Glad the pumpkin patch went well! Have fun celebrating!
rvamama - Looks like fun!! You can pee on all of the things whenever you're ready. Haha. I'm not clinically knowledgeable enough, but I wonder if C's pheromones - the ones that can make roommates schedules adjust to the same week - have any influence on you in this case?

Trying to remember when I was here last. LLR is busy. I was up til 3 trying to go through 160 pairs of leggings. For messing up my Halloween leggings, they doubled my order from 60 to 120. They sent me 120 2 packs so I shipped 40 of those packs to Coley and have 80 2 packs to deal with. Yay but holy leggings! We FINALLY had our Early Intervention intake appt this past Thursday. They're coming for a speech eval on 11/10. Mind you we got the referral and I called on 9/22. I feel so bad that they're that short staffed but I'm also being the selfish mama over here like come on!
I made it through the day. Sales were good in the afternoon and then I packed up around 6.. at that time, everybody was pretty content just chugging wine and listening to music. I didn't even carry my shit home because I just did not have it in me. As soon as I got home and sat down, my body just gave up. So many aches, congestion, headache, sinuses.. all of it. :-(. I miss my girl, she went to bed a few minutes after I got back. Just hope I have the energy tomorrow to drag my shit home and hang out with her!
