Whine alert

Some day, when Roper is better, I'm going to leave Katie with him and go out to lunch. I'm going to go to a restaurant that will bring me a meal that I did not cook, on a real plate.
And I am going to spend an entire hour and not once have to deal with or even talk about pee.

Poor Gretchen!

You sound like every other young mother I've ever known or met. *chuckle*

I understand completely - and I'll bet my husband would understand even better. :) My sympathies.

In 3 weeks I will be there. You will leave Katie with me. You will go have a meal with someone that you like that is not Roper, and you will enjoy it.

And when you get back, you will feel refreshed and ready to be a mom again.

You do not get a choice in this, btw.

And if Roper is not better by then, I will baby sit him, too.

You see, Roper is an a heavy duty diuretic to try and get the swelling down. He can't easily walk so he has been using the urinal. So, I'm dumping his bottle with quite a bit of frequency. Then last night I went to change Katie before bed and while I was in the process she cut loose. So it was all pee, all evening.
Yeah, I'm laughing at it all, but sometimes ya just gotta vent.

I DO BELIEVE I said you don't have a choice in this.

We'll discuss details soon.

The Pee Channel - all pee, all the time.

Actually, I understand the situation, really. My sympathies. Right now, we're trading colds back and forth. Ooh, this one's sparkly and makes you throw up!

Actually, I would like to follow up to this and say that you have no choice... but I'm hoping that Roper is up and around enough by then... I mean, Katie is one thing...

in our house this is known as "Mommy time", which Cary is just about due for another dose of (thanks for reminding me).

Ah yes.. those kiddy times when you can go to a restaurant that isn't painted in primary colors, doesn't have cartoon characters hopping around and doesn't supply crayons. Where you actually take two bites of warm food in a row without having to spoon food into someone else.. or wipe off a face.. or pick up a tossed toy. A place where food comes on a real plate, isn't wrapped in paper or foam.

Give it about 10 years.

I am so there with you lady. It does get better; probably not tomorrow, but it does.

I've always said
the advantage to being an older "young mother" is the ability to take the long view. This, too, shall pass. Meanwhile, yes, take a break when you can.

Amen. *hug*

I so understand where you are coming from.

Welcome to motherhood.

Hear! Hear!
Yes, make sure to take care of the mom, too, as often as possible.
