Helping Mama Blog

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Maya has decided, since Sunday night, that the only place worth being is with mama.  Now, not that mama minds, but occasionally she'd like to pee alone...  I get that the door has to be open, but especially because of the whole "surprise gift from Mother Nature", I'd really like to have a few moments in the washroom without a child either in my arms or screaming because I banished her to her carseat (in the bathroom no less!) so that I could do my business and wash my hands.  So, as I type, Maya is sitting in my lap "typing" on the desk (since she cant reach the laptop).  If only I could get a picture of that!

I almost wonder if she isnt feeling well.  After Sunday night's "mommy-over-daddy" experience, she spent yesterday wanting to be in my arms and, when Peter came home and took her so that I could have a moment, she screamed like she was in agony.  I was trying to get Bobby to sleep, so Peter walked with her, took her upstairs, sang to her, you name it, but Maya wasnt having it.  The second- literally- he took Bobby and placed Maya on my chest, she snuggled in, stopped crying, and calmed down.  Ten minutes later, she was asleep, where she stayed for the next 10 hours, until she woke up around 7:30 this morning.  I put her down to shower and she screamed.  I put her down to get dressed, tears.  Every time I have put her down today, crying, except for the 20 minute nap she took (which is unlike our 2 hour napper).


Could be her gums or maybe a seasonal cold or something... She has no real symptoms of anything except she's unhappy and wants me over Peter.  She's definitely going through a growth spurt and is eating like crazy (no complaints there!)

And, in happy and not-so-happy prayer request news...

  • Today is my FIL's birthday!  Please join me in a Happy Birthday shout-out!  I told him I'd make whatever he'd like and his selection... wild boar (if you know him, you probably arent too surprised, LOL).  I told him if he found it, I'd cook it.  Well... He found it!  So, I'd best get ready to figure out a menu! :)
  • Sonja is still pregnant and celebrates 26 weeks today!  Visit her and wish her well as she plugs along to June! June or bust!!!  Let's see these babies hit 34 weeks!!!
  • Noelle has received some news about Baby B that has her heart breaking.  Baby B has severe IUGR and Noelle is very concerned and worried.  Please pop over to her blog and give her some warm thoughts and love.  
  • Alexander's godmother and my very dear friend, Terri, ran her first half marathon!  I am so proud of her!  Reading her blog makes me want to train for one!!!

As much as Mommy and Maya time is important, I do hope she feels better. Poor little thing. :(

Coop is going through momma obsession right now, too! I have to admit that it was really enduring in the beginning but like yourself, I just need a few minutes a day to myself to do normal human things ;)

She's right on time for separation anxiety...

Tee hee! J went through the 'mama, forget peeing alone' phase!

She doesn't mind so much now. Just the occasional bang on the door and an angry shout at being shut out of the bathroom.

And J loves typing. I've given her an old keyboard to bash on which she loves. I'm sure she's busy composing her own blog! Maybe she could read Maya's! x

Oh, I hope she's feeling better if this is caused by any illness! It's so sweet that she loves mommy so much, though!!

Poor little Maya, something must be bothering her or she is just going through a mama stage. I am so happy that you have them to love. I am so glad that Sonja is still pregnant. Please keep me posted. Also, I feel so bad for Noelle. I went over and read about it and I will pray that all will be well. Please keep me posted on her too.

So cute about Maya wanting to be with her mama. . . but yes, using the bathroom alone is always a nice thing. Hee hee. :)

You read my blog and it made you want to train for a marathon? Are you nuts? :-)
Ah, one of those common things about motherhood...never peeing alone. Isn't it great. CJ's almost three and we're just to the point where I can go alone about 50-60% of the time. The remainder of the time at lease one other person or feline has to go in there with me or shows up while I'm mid business.
