Emergency situation? What could that be?

We were very, very grateful to have diapers left last night.

Around midnight I went to Monkey’s room to check on him before going to bed and I noticed an odor.  A very unpleasant odor.  Monkey had diarrhea in his sleep.  He was so furious that we woke him up and put him in . . . → Read More: Emergency situation? What could that be?

Waiting and hoping.

I know I’m setting myself up for disappointment but I finally broke down and went to HR to discuss our horrid insurance company.   We have Tufts Health Plan, an HMO.  Between the company contribution and our contribution we are paying close to $2,000/month for this plan and they are worthless.

They paid for Monkey’s . . . → Read More: Waiting and hoping.

Getting paid for a good deed.

Today, the firm that I work for has offered us a chance to spend 4 hours doing community service during work hours.  I totally jumped at the chance.  We are going to be painting apartments for low-income seniors.  Based on the number of volunteers we had we’re set to paint EIGHT apartments in 4 . . . → Read More: Getting paid for a good deed.

He did it!

He wore underwear allll night and stayed dry allll night.  I am so proud of him!

He was adament last night that he did not want the diaper. “No, No, No!  Back!  Away!”  lol   So we took the plunge two days early.

Another one down…we have less than 10 diapers left of our last monster box.  We have another monster box sitting unopened.  I’m starting to wonder…Keep it?  How long?  Donate it? Return it?  Decisions, decisions…

Improvement in the Monkey/Great Grampy relationship

I’ve mentioned before that Duhdee’s grandfather lives in the other half of the two-family house we live in.  We’ve lived here for all of Monkey’s life but, for some reason, Monkey is a bit scared of his Great Grampy.  They both want to interact with each other but Monkey is just very uncertain about . . . → Read More: Improvement in the Monkey/Great Grampy relationship

Countdown to Dryness 2009* – Night 4

Last night Monkey put himself to bed a half hour early.  That, coupled with the fact that he woke up around 10:30 requesting a glass of water, drank it and then asked for more, did not bode well for his efforts to stay dry for 7 consecutive nights but HE DID IT!  He woke . . . → Read More: Countdown to Dryness 2009* – Night 4

I hope he never loses his love of the vacuum!

This morning Monkey began asking to vacuum the floor before my eyes were even opened.  I’m sure a lot of people would find this annoying but since we have two, double-coated, dogs…well, it’s always good to have someone who enjoys vacuuming around!  I did make him wait until after we’d had breakfast but as . . . → Read More: I hope he never loses his love of the vacuum!
