A Full House!

As I sit here and speak to you all, I have a housefull of children! I am tired, but can you believe I am enjoying it?! Am I crazy!

I have my regular late sibling set, a 10 year old and a 20 month old, and I am baby sitting a sibling set that was in the daycare previously but moved ot a different city, 3 year old and 1 year old. Plus, I am watching my friends' grandson, 7 years old due to a death in the family. My grandson I am still taking care of until grandpa (my ex husband) comes to pick up both our teenage boys and the baby for the weekend.

Yes! my household is quite busy right now! When it is all over, I will totally colapse into oblivion! Too bad daycare providers are not paid enough for all that they do! One has to be insane to do such a profession :)! There ya' go...I must be insane! LOL!

Have a happy and fulfilled weekend!....presious

Teething Sadness

My grandson, now 5 months old, is teething pretty badly. Poor baby, you can see where the teeth are pressing through is gums. Yesterday was pretty tough for him. Last night, I gave him some tylennol and a nice warm bath, rubbed him down with baby oil, gave him a nice warm bottle of milk, then wrapped him in a blanket and rocked him to sleep. He woke up only once in the middle of the night.

He is having a wonderful morning so far. He is not crying, in fact, he is smiling and having a good time playing with his toys :). He should be getting ready for his morning nap. It's so hard when they teeth and there's not a whole lot we can do for their discomfort. This time, it worked out well. Nana is happy and I am certain that my grandson is much better!
