nickname earned.

I have been writing blog posts in my head again, posts about baby diarrhea, about moving, about family. I also have a post in my head about the things a mom should have in her car at all times (I re-learned this when taking the girl to the doctor. In a moment of stellar parenting, she "went" all over everything and I only had a jacket, a diaper, socks and a blanket for her to wear into her appointment). Claire has been sick off and on this week with a nasty flu bug. Her being sick conflicted sharply with my desire have a life outside of comforting her. Also, there is a new tooth. Also, she seems to be developing separation anxiety. It's been a week. She has tried my patience with her illness, and it's not her fault, but really, girlie? Enough with the diarrhea. And enough with the screaming.

Here she is looking not so much like a baby, as a toddler. Despite numerous phone calls to friends for prayer and feeling like I can't do this job one more day, when I give her that final cuddle at night, I tell her the same thing every day, "I love you, Pooper. Until I take my last breath. I love you."

Oh Kari!!!
You can do it! I know you can. You will make it through all the poop, and yuck. Isn't it amazing what can come out of a little body.
We have not had those yucky's yet this year. At least you can throw it all away. Wait till she is in little underware! GROSS, that is sick. I have to do "special" washes for those times, and then a cycle of bleach and hot water. Ugh!
You can feel free to call or e-mail any time!!!

As I was writting that, Isaiah came out crying, having to go to the bathroom, not really awake. Darren was trying to get him into the bathroom, but he walked right into the kitchen stood in front of the dirty clothes pile an let it all go.
Oh, the joys of potty issues!

Hang in there Kari. Sometimes it seems as if the crying is never going to go away, and it will always be such a struggle. I promise you, it doesn't last forever.

A very wise women told me once, as I was fretting over Luke's screaming episode (which were quite frequent back then) "Honey, everything is a stage and nothing lasts forever, including childhood. Before you know it they'll be all grown up... and really getting on your nerves." Now that I have two teenagers, I know exactly what she meant. Hang in there:)
