Puppies make life just as interesting as kids do!! George, our new dog, still hasn’t fully settled into his new home. However, with each passing day he gets a little bit more comfortable. As he gets comfortable, more of his lively personality comes out. He is the most difficult dog/puppy I’ve ever had to sleep with though. He loves to get curled up underneath my neck and literally snore in my ears. I can move him 1500 times throughout the night, but some how he wiggles his little tail end right back to that spot. Talk about getting prepared to be woke up in the middle of the night to feed a baby,….no, I get woke up in the middle of the night to take a puppy outside because he can’t hold it. He will literally resort to pawing my arms with his long toe nails and licking me to death until he gets me up to take him outside. He does it in such a manner that he doesn’t wake anyone up, but ME. This is all for a dog that is suppose to be for my son!! Now, I know you veteran parents are out there saying, don’t you know when you get a child a pet, your the one who takes care of it. Yes, I knew that aspect, but my oldest son, I’m learning that no matter how much I may want him to be an animal lover and how much I want him to share in that feeling about animals. I’m starting to see it may NEVER happen. My youngest son, he’s always been an animal lover, and he does everything he can to take care of the animals.
However, every person has wonderful unique traits about them that makes them great. My oldest son is my little smart man, and when he’s in a good mood, he’s the most loving child alive. He seems to really be loving his new school, and I can’t begin to tell you how much that warms my heart. He has been to two other schools, and he was thrown out of the first one and almost thrown out of the last one. His teacher’s didn’t know how to properly handle him. Now, in their defense, Jimmy can be a complex kid because of the life he’s had, but he’s come a LONG ways over the past three years. He’s a totally different child, and seems so much happier with his life! Some of his actions and some of his comments sends out to many red flags to others who don’t know the WHOLE situation, and therefore, we’re having to deal with a lot of drama in our lives as a result. However, despite what everyone wants to think we have nothing to hide. If we did, do you think I’d be so willing to talk about it across the entire internet?? We’ve been cleared by DSS on a number of investigations. I’ve told them each time they’ve came the doors are always open to them at any time. I’m just sick of others budding their noses into our lives and ASSUMING the worse of us.
I can’t believe I’m going into my 24th week of being pregnant. 🙂 She’s growing like a bad weed. She’s constantly moving around. Del was able to feel her kick last night, and you would have thought she gave him a million dollars the way he reacted. With Little Del he couldn’t feel anything, and he was always so frustrated because he wanted to. 🙂 He finally fully accepted her name. I still believe we talked about in length over four years ago when we decided to start trying to have another baby. However, I guess I was wrong. Thank God he is so willing to please me, and I got to choose her name. 🙂 I’ve had my heart set on this name for YEARS.
I just have finals left to do in my two classes, and I’m done with another two classes. Then starting on Sunday, I’m only taking one class. I won’t know what to do with my extra time with only taking one class. Now that I’m starting to feel better I’m enjoying doing my school work, but since I felt so rough for so long my grades are no where close to what they normally are going into the finals. I know I’ll pass both classes, but with what grade I’m not sure at this point.
You know what I’ve been finding odd lately in my life. I’ve literally been talking to my Dad’s ex-fiancee’ and my Dad’s ex-wife, and I’ve been corresponding with my first stepfather, the one who is amazing! Yet, I’ve barely had any contact with my own flesh and blood father. He called me the day I found out that I was definitely having a Zeva and then called on my son’s birthday. With both phone calls AND him talking on the phone with both boys, the grand total for BOTH phone calls was 8 minutes. That’s the most contact we’ve hand in almost a year. I don’t know for the life of me what happened to our relationship. Yes, I don’t approve of how he’s handling his relationships with the women in his life, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to be around my father. He’s a grown man, and as long as he doesn’t try to interfere in my marriage, then I’m not trying to interfere in his relationships. He asked me for my input, and because I didn’t tell him something he wanted to hear, ….low and behold he’s pretty much decided that he doesn’t want anything to do with me. My youngest son keeps asking me if my Dad is still alive. My youngest son has seen him two times in his life, and that was when he was a baby and around his second birthday. The sad fact is he lives less than 3 hours away. He knows that I’ve had vehicle issues for years now, and don’t trust making that long drive. I’ve offered to pay for him to be able to go to certain events with us, and he’s canceled at the last minute. Please don’t get me wrong, my Dad does have his faults, but I have MANY of my own. I’m just venting about how frustrated I am that he has so little to do with me and my kids. I can’t help but wonder if he’s so hurt by the fact that I made the decision I made concerning my daughter that he can’t stand to be around me. However, if he did come around more, he could see a lot of pictures of my daughter to clearly show she’s happy as a lark and doing well. I’ve made many attempts over the past couple of years to keep our contact going, and I feel like all I’ve hit is a brick wall. I’m done trying. I spent all of my life trying to gain a relationship with my mother, and when she passed we had a small one.
Well, I’m being paged to go into town with my family. Saturday and Sunday’s are our days to go off and do things usually as a family or him and I as a couple. I hope you are having a good day.
