It's TEENY...I must have missed a typo! LOL It's actually her nickname because she was so small when she was born. Just barely over 5 pounds. Course..it doesn't fit her anymore! LOL

Oh we know about small babies on the forum, Annette! We have several kids who were premies. Jenn has two. Maxi was one. Afgrey's nephew. Maxi was 3 1/2 lbs at birth, heavy for as early as he was. Was Teeny full term?

People quipped that Maxi's name was bigger than he was. One dad in the NICU said "Maximillian? Looks more like a Maxi-quarter-million to me!"

Gotta go get ready for dialysis. My girl will throw me in the shower & then I'll be speeding along my way.

See y'all afterwards.

LOL She was 3 weeks early, and Allie, my youngest, was 4 weeks early. I just posted about them on the thread where someone was looking for some help with some research...

ANyway, even though they were early, I never concidered them preemies because they never had all the health issues and developmental issues that tend to go along with it. They are all happy, healthy, normal kids!

Here's a pic of them from Easter 2008...



That's Bunny in the back, Teeny is on the left, and Allie on the right.

Hi ,
Just have a minute to post ... been trying to catch up on all the stuff I didn't do while I didn't feel well this last week... still have a little bit left but the feeling like all I can do is sleep seems to be gone... good thing cause I really can't do that.
I have the boys- they are watching Handy Manny right now- I have 5 loads of laundry to fold now- but they are asking for lunch so that will come first- gotta feed Mom too...
I got this joke off my Make a note letter--- thought it was cute.


JOKE
I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer:"Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail. Amen."

-Unknown(Editor's Note: If your email inbox is anything like mine, I might be praying "deliver us FROM email".)

great Joke!
Good to hear that you are doing better but take it slow and easy. If you jump back into everything at full speed ahead you might relapse and that wouldn't be very nice.

Well, I enjoyed spending the afternoon with Allie at school. I had to leave about an hour early because the field trip got back early. There was NO WAY Wayne was going to sit aropund the school for an hour waiting on ME! LOL

He bashed the play (like I figured he would), but then said "I guess it was cute enough for what it was"!!! LOL Go figure. But Teeny had a good time, and that's what matters the most.

I was amazed at the issues that Allie's teacher has to deal with in her classroom. There was one child that had to sit by herself at the back of the room because of her disruptive behavior. She constantly kept getting up and walking towards the front of the class to get the teacher's attention while the teacher was busy talking. Another student just sat at his desk doing absolutely nothing, and the teacher told me just the fact that he could now speak a good deal of English was impressive enough. When he started in her class at the beginning of the year, he didn't know ANY. There was a little girl in the class that was in the same situation. There were several children that couldn't even read the most simple of words like "pup". These are 1st grade students!

I let the teacher know that if she needed any help in the future, to just send a note home in Allie's agenda. I hadn't been able to help much before because of my job, but now that I'm not working, I think I just might make it a point to try to go help out at least once a week. I don't think she has an assistant in there to help her either.

You are going to get a note every single night. "HELP!"
Actually it sounds like the teacher has a handle on things. It is hard to have that one child so disruptive.

Hi all,
Believe me I am taking it as easy as I can- do have the boys here for dinner tonight and will do the bath,teeth and pj's too- also homework for the oldest... then he will help Joe set up his IPod to get some music on it... kids can just do this stuff- I couldn't figure it out but he makes it look so easy...
I used to do the field trips and stuff when my kids were young- and my SIL went with the kindergarten class to the stock show last month- had to watch 4 kids including Derek- he likes doing that stuff though- even took a day off to do it, when my youngest was little she was a Brownie and all the Mom's worked- including me I worked evenings a lot then... so Joe and our neighbor who had a daughter our girls age too were the leaders for about a yr till one Mom quit her job and took it over- we even had the back yard practice campout in our backyard... in AZ- never rains- did that night- had to bring in 15 little girls in sleeping bags - they never even woke up! had wall to wall little girls that night---.... they had a ball though...
Well have to go and get myself folding those clothes- still haven't done it!
Nana

Annette I'm glad Teeny had fun & Allie enjoyed your visit.

Nana I love you! You and Joe are the best!

When I got home from dialysis, Maxi was napping. I stretched out on the couch & crashed myself for a long time. The kid is still asleep so I better wake him or his schedule will be all turned around.

They are calling for a big storm tomorrow so our day trip to NH might be cancelled. We are both looking forward to it, but we gotta keep an eye on the weather.
