Do you ever sit down at the end of the day and say, "I'm so tired and I can't even remember what I did today because I did SO much?" That's how I have been ending my days the last few nights.

I am so glad that my kids are in school. It gives me the chance to get things done that I haven't been able to do in awhile.
 It's given me the chance to apply for jobs. I have been applying for full time paraprofessional jobs in the school district so I can be on  the same schedule as the kids. If nothing pans out, I will continue with my para subbing that I have been doing.

Our busy schedule started in full force this past week. It goes like this:

Mondays: Girl scouts, and Swimming lessons.
Tuesday: I work the home swim meets for Appleton West.
Wednesday: Religion
Thursday: Ballet
Friday: Nothing

Some weeks I enjoy the busy schedule because it makes the week go by faster, but other times I just want to crash at 6pm.

Besides all the hustle and bustle, we've been busy with our doctor appointments as well. Carson had a appointment with Urology yesterday in Milwaukee. They did a VCUG to make sure that the kidney reflux that she had a few years ago had not come back. Everything looked great. BUT, we know Carson has a tiny bladder. At this point, it is smaller than where is should be for her age. She is still having accidents at night and we are now concerned that its because he bladder is too small and can't hold that urine that is being produced. Dr. K wants to watch her for 1 more year to see if her bladder will catch up. There is nothing we can do to speed up the process, all we can do is and watch and wait. If her bladder does not catch up or falls further behind, we will have some serious thinking to do........would she benefit from a bladder augmentation? So.... all we can do is wait and see.

Carson also has had some memory issues the last couple of months. Our neurosurgeon recommended that she have some neuropsych testing done. One of the medication she is on can cause memory loss, so we are in the process of trying to get her off it and onto something else that will work for her bladder just as well.

So, that's what's been going on the last few days. I will try and update at least once a week. Thanks for checking in. :-)


First day of 4th and 1st grade

It's a bitter sweet feeling that my kids are back in school. Bitter being that the summer went way too fast and that my kids are growing up so fast. 4th and 1st grades already. WOW. It just seems like Riley and Keegan were just learning how to write their names and  tie their shoes. Its seems like Carson and Cooper were just learning to walk and talk. What happened to my babies?  The sweetness of it all is that the fighting has seized! FINALLY! But most of all,  these years are going by so fast. I need to step back, take a deep breath and enjoy what I have, because I'm going to miss this if I don't.  (If you haven't heard the song, You're gonna miss this by Trace Adkins...Grab a box of kleenex and be ready to shed a few tears.)
