Maizey is 6 months old! Already... Before I know it, we'll be celebrating her first birthday and I'll be going back to work. I better get signed up for daycare. Daycare seems like an impossible task. I mean with Angela working such random hours and me working the 3-11 shift some times. I guess ultimately we'll need 4 days a week, 3 of 8 being afternoon shifts for me, and one weekend a month. Maybe my mom will be willing to help with the afternoons and the weekend if need be. I am willing to pay her daycare rates. I was hoping that she would retire in October and be able to be the daycare. I would totally pay her. I don't expect my mom to raise my kids. Thing is, now that my mom is recovering from her ostomy, she can't do that much physically without getting tired.
The other thing is that we're hoping to be in a new house, living with angela's dad by then, so maybe he could help out too.. I don't think he has much experince with little ones though. If we are in a house, Angela is going to give up one job and work part time hours only, so that could help too.
HA! I just thought of something funny! If we do try for a second child... Living with ange's dad... Lol what's he going to think when our guy comes over to make and leave the specimen !!!

So frustrating

Ughhh... I have been trying to publish a post for days now. It is stuck on my phone on the blog press application. Everytime I try to publish it is comes up with "it seems your network is not ready to publish" or something similar to that.

Breifly it was an update on us surviving the cold. After Maizey had it, both Angela and I got it. Mother's day, I got a fever, and Ange had to drive her dad to the airport, and well, I just put Maizey to bed, and went to bed. She must have known that I wasn't well because she slept through the night for me that night.

She doesn't sleep through the night often. She usually sleeps for 3 or 4 hours, wakes to eat, then sleeps again.

So, the $1 millon cottage that we were planning on staying in this summer got sold. We've had to pick a new one. It is not quite as nice as the first one, but it is nice still, and a little bit cheaper. The beach at this one is a lot nicer too. That will be nice for the kids.
I am really looking forward to this vacation!
I'm also hoping we can move out of this ghetto sooner than later. I'm just tired of coming out of my house to find a wal-mart shopping cart on my front walk way, or laying in bed listening to the neighbours have some very colourful conversations in the middle of the night, while I inhale the smoke from their ciggarettes that they smoke under our bedroom window. It's not so bad in the winter when no one is outside, but in the spring and summer, it's almost every night.
I'm also hoping to go camping for a few nights in June some time. The only thing holding us back is a lack of dog sitter. Usually ange's dad watches them for us but he's away until july. We'd take them, but that'll be too much. Especially since it would be our first time camping with Maizey.

Maizey's First Cold.

Maizey woke at 2am last night for a bottle and a diaper change. She is all congested and coughing, I can hear the mucous loosely in her chest/throat. She hasn't yet a fever. I will see how she is when she wakes up again. I was dreading this. I have a pretty good idea where the cold came from as my nephew (4) has been with us for the week, and he is constantly blowing his nose. He told me yesterday that he thinks he caught his brother's cold.
This is a first that I was not looking forward to. Poor little girl. I don't even know what to do. Do I take her to the doctor? or only if it gets worse? I hate that these things always happen right before the weekend.

We've had a busy but fun week.
Monday we met up with some friends at the indoor play gym. That place can really tire you out. After that we went to Wendy's for lunch (by request of Zach) and then did some shopping.
Tuesday we met a friend for Lunch at our favourite restaurant, and just hung out there for a while. There is a "race car" arcade game there, so Zach was entertained by that. I can't believe how quickly the time went by.
Wednesday we went to a "stars and strollers" showing of "Rio". It was really a cute movie. It was my first time going to one of these and Maizey was really good. I can't imagine she would be every time, but that was encouraging.
I am not sure what we are going to do today. We will only have a short day today compared to other days. We will be dropping Zach off at his mom and dad`s work at about 2:30, because we have an appointment to go to at 3.
Friday, still not sure what we are going to do. I was thinking about going to one of the indoor water parks in Niagara Falls, but now that Maizey has a cold, I`m not sure that`s such a great idea. Who knows. I am sure we will find something.
Tomorrow is my birthday.. Whoopee. LOL.
