My daughter has had a medical issue that has required a few trips to the pediatric office over the last 2 weeks. When I called the office to schedule the first appointment, I was informed that they didn't open the schedule for appointments after 4pm unless my child was a student.
Excuse me? I don't understand.
Well Danielle, we save those appointments for kids that go to school and can't make it here during the day. If we didn't do that, we would be here until midnight.
How about for us single parents that have jobs and don't get paid for the hours we are not at work????? So, because my daughter is only 2 and goes to daycare, I have to take 3 hours off of my already low paying job to take her to the doctors office. 3 times now!
Then, my co-pay is $45 per 15 minute visit. Not to mention the prescriptions.
Can you say bend over single mom and take this????
My biggest pet peeve in the world is MOUTH Noises. All of them. If I can hear any noise coming from your mouth that isn't a word, laugh or song, I want to claw your eyes out. The biggest one is cracking your gum. EEEEKKKK!
My parenting style is to be the huggie, kissie, wrestle and play kind of mommy. My daughter and I are constantly rough housing, bantering or cuddling. I LOVE it and she does too, BUT someone has to be a teacher and provide her with more than a few random cuss words and a bear hug.
This why I have these people.
Grandma- My mom. She is the most "Martha Stewarty" person I know. She spends hours knitting, making candles, coloring, painting and much more artsy stuff that I have NO interest in. She and Toots can sit at the kitchen counter and entertain themselves for hours.
Papa-My moms husband. Toots can't have anything without telling him what color, how many, what it does, what letter it starts with, etc... It is fun to watch. She is at the age where this is cool. He is also the hardest working (physically) person I know. He has taught her the difference in screwdrivers, nails, boards, etc... She loves to help papa build things.
Papa- My dad. He just lets her do what ever she wants cause, "that's what grand parents" do.
Steph-Daycare/Friend. She is all of the above. She is a teacher, a loving hug when needed, an art teacher, gymnastics's coach, disciplinarian, and best of all a GREAT friend.
And... I am not sure which one of us taught my daughter to say "I gonna kick your asssss! :)
