Feeling more in control

Thanks to everyone for their compassion and encouraging words. I had a good cleansing cry the other night after Charlie fought going to bed to the point of projectile vomiting everywhere. That's a new problem I need to address- trying to get him to go down on his own without getting so upset that he chokes and then throws up. But we'll get there...

Yesterday was a MUCH better day and today I have a more relaxed and calm attitude. I'm lucky to have friends and family that support me so often. Being a mother is harder than I ever imagined it could be, but when Charlie is asleep at night I miss him and look forward to the adventures the next day has in store for us.

In other news, we have an accepted offer on that house I had mentioned before. I'm holding my breath until the inspection (more likely until closing day when everything is signed), but I really think this house could be our forever home. It needs soooo much work (new kitchen, baths, paint, roof, windows) but we can do it all on our own time schedule.

It's a colonial on a nice a quiet road with plenty of land for Charlie to run around and for me to garden to my heart's content. Joe and I can turn that old kitchen around and breath new life into it, I'm sure. And there is enough room to invite our family and friends over for get-togethers. I can't wait. I'm looking at paint colors, dreaming up Charlie's room (I think we're going to go for a nautical beachy theme for his room and the whole house.) I'll leave you with a few shots from our first kitchen and bath reno...

Oh my goodness, you did SUCH a good job remodeling...want to come over and do mine? Congrats on it. Hang in there with Charlie, we both know you are doing a good job as a Mommy and this too shall pass. Right now when I coach my son to call me Mommy instead of Nana or Daddy I tel him, "Call me Mommy, I earned that name!" These are those moments you'll reflect on when that happens to you, I know I do.
