Some times the mum needs mothering! DS would sleep well for a few days and
then have an awake marathon out of the blue. I didn't know whether I was
Arther or Martha.

I consoled myself by telling myself that by the time he was 21, I wouldn't
be getting up to him in the night! I hope you're little one sleeps through
the night soon.

Oh, man, I usually don't say anything, or *think* anything, either, because I
don't KNOW anything.  Except that I was once a kid, of course, and I might know
what I'd have liked.....which isn't always what a kid *needs*.  I am totally
ignorant and aware of that fact.  But I'm a dog expert!  (Was a pro)

Yeah, me too.  For me it was Cairn Terriers.  That's how I got Sophie the
Wonder Dog.  She's so atypical for a Cairn (they generally aren't wusses),
that rescue would have put her down if I hadn't taken her.  People who want
Cairns generally don't know what to make of the kind that are afraid of
tinfoil, plastic bags, snowmen and need to be with "Mama" 24/7.

She would have been an idea doggie for an elderly person, someone spry enough
to take walks.  But we're not giving her up, unless DH tries one of these
days while I'm asleep.  (And he knows better.  I tell him that Sophie's
middle name is Medusa.  If he gets rid of one, two Cairns come in her place)

Yes, you're right - and I was right when I told Bob.  I was wrong in
recounting the tale.  At any rate, it was enough to keep Bob from doing any
harm (like he would, anyway) to the little dog.  He just blusters a lot,
because he feels it's "less than manly" to like such a small, wussy dog.

On the subject of getting one's mythological figures mixed up, we have a
Beauty salon here in town named Medusa.  It always cracked me up, and wanted
to see the wicked ugly people on the way out.

Hey! We have a Medusa salon here in Toledo, too. I went there once. They
live up to their name.

Everyone knows exactly how to raise children, and this knowledge mysteriously
evaporates the moment they have children of their own.  As for me, I mutter a
lot, tell everyone that they're loved at every opportunity, and figure that
my baby will never care if the carpet is spotless, but she'll always know
that her Mama had time to play.

I'll let you know in 20 years if I was right.

Hon, don't be alarmed.  I was nodding along with agreement and rue with your
statement.  I thought, "Little weiner only has three brain cells at first,
how hard can it be?"  Everyone I knew who was childless thought roughly the
same thing.

Until the kid arrived.  What we didn't realize is that they spent their nine
month sentence "in the hole" plotting and planning on what to do when they
finally escaped.  They even had one enourmous advantage:  they could hear
their jailer and everyone close to her.  They knew when she slept, what she
ate, what made her tired.

They come out of the hatch looking so sweet and innocent, and no one dreams
that they've already formed a huge portion of their personality and that you
have to ways to go:  to try and mold it (hahahaha) or to learn what it's like
and subtly make it work with everyone else.  Fortunately, they're still so
tiny, cute and lovable that they allow us to think that they aren't in
charge.

Re: OT, sorta: No chance to make beads grrrr!
Oh, man -- I think they spend their entire life *before* being born plotting.
I believe in reincarnation.  So they're born with all these plans, and goals,
even revenge -- and they can't talk or walk.  They're so frustrated they could
explode right then and there, and who's handy?  Mom!  Let's take it out on Mom!

Re: OT, sorta: No chance to make beads grrrr!
That was basically my philosophy in child rearing too, Kathy. I loved my
son, let him know he was loved, and gave him my time and attention, and gave
him the responsibilty for his own choices (at the times when he was ready to
handle that job) and since he has become a man grown  I have asked him if he
thought I did a good job. He said I was a good mom. I tell him, I had good
material to work with. :-)
And I am proud of the man he is, the child he was, the father he is to his
son...
But as to the carpet being spotless..well... lets just say he noticed, and
is a Much better house tender than I will ever be. Did he care? Ill try to
remember to ask!
Being a parent means not having all the right answers and trying to figure
out the right questions!
Diana, going through it again, none the wiser....for each child is unique.

Oh my gosh, it is a growth spurt! Why don't I remember these things from
the older kids? I must have been so tired that I blocked it out. Geez!
I'm REALLY glad she chose a day when the other two are at their dad's
house, so they couldn't be swarming me all day. (Children's First Rule:
the amount of attention demanded must be in direct converse proportion
to the amount of energy parent has available; therefore, when parent is  
fresh and eager to interact, ignore parent and play as far away as
possible, whereas if parent is exhausted and under pressure, needs must
be presented in unbearably whiny tone every 1.5 minutes.)

As far as eating... LOL! I'm living on jerky, nuts, and nectarines right
now!

On the plus side, Ophelia slept for five hours straight last night (yay
sleeping!) and woke up with a dry diaper, which she promtly drenched
just in time for DH to change her. Go Ophelia! Now, I just hope she
sleeps a bit today... I don't just WANT to make beads, I HAVE to make
beads because I do not, not, NOT want to go back to work full-time in
two months.

I think she may have caught on that Moxley and I have taken advantage of
a couple of her naptimes to, ah, ahem... and she's afraid of
competition!

Maybe if I just calmly and maturely explain to her that we're being
careful, she'll nap for me.

I can no longer remember her nighttime awakenings that occur prior to 5
am, so have started counting the wet diapers in the morning... usually 2
between bedtime (11-ish) and 5 am, one at 5, one at 8, when we get up,
and another somewhere in-between.
