Thanks!!! You don't know how frustrated I am today....I just sent Danie an email about 30 pages long, lol.

I tried to call the woman today just to ask a stupid ? so she wouldn't forget about me :)

She wasn't there. I guess she took off for the holiday. So I guess I will go Monday to observe the class and hopefully know something then.

I was awake from 330-515 or so this morning. Thinking about stuff. I pulled out my old teaching materials to refresh my brain.

I'm really not happy at my mmo program. I have been offered a job at Walgreen's and I think if for some reason I don't get this job, I'm gonna go to Walgreen's. I won't gross much money after daycare but it'll be something and pretty soon Mags will be in school. The Walgreen's guy gave me till Wed. to let him know.

I also have a couple possibilities in the school district, but I'm not too hopeful about those. You have to know people that know people to get those.

I'll just tell you this....there's lots of snotty women at our program. I don't like working with snotty women. Do your job, mind your own business, and everything is cool. Don't stick your nose in other people's classes. A girl asked me "was somebody just crying in your class?" As if it's a terrible thing for a 2yo to cry??? Really! I let her know that yes, somebody was crying but that's what 2yos do.

I guess women are like that everywhere, but I think we have an excess of it. I just want out of there. It's a church program for Heaven's sake! And do you know that the churches I've worked with are the worst with the gossip? I worked at the elementary school with the most Christian people I've ever known in my life....how does that make sense? Ok...shuttin up.

Hi! My mom just found this forum for me as none of our friends have babies with GERD and I desperately need somewhere to ask talk with others who know what it is like to have a baby who doesn't sleep, eat or go an hour without crying for reasons unseen. I was a teacher before we had Katie and worked at a "Christian" school where I wrote up a boy for telling me what I could do with myself and the principal tore it up because she didn't believe he really said that or was that kind of boy. I quit the next day.

Hi Katie's mommy! Thanks for your reply to my vent :) I'm sorry about the experience you had too. I just don't get it.

You should make a new post about your little Katie so we can all meet ya. Hugs!

ARGH! I was hoping for good news today!! One thing that you can do is mention to the director on Monday that you have a job pending, but were really interested in the job at her center and were holding off letting the other place know. That may help force a decision. That's what I ended up doing before I was offered my current position (my boss is a terrible procrastinator...).

I hate it that the women at your mmo are so snippy. Why do some women (esp Christians) have to be like that?

Well, I feel bad talking about my fellow Christians this way, but women in general are just gossipers. WE really have to watch ourselves. I'm guilty of it too, just not at work. The environment there just isn't what it should be or once was. We used to have a lot of teachers there from our church, now that's not the case. They've all left...mmm, I wonder why.

Thanks Maggie's Mommy! When Katie was 3 weeks she projectile vomited on me one night after feeding and for the next week whenever I would feed her at night she would wake up about 30 minutes later with her head covered in vomit. I called the peds office to ask about gripe water and they wanted us to go in. She was put on Zantac and responded well to it. Every so often we would have to up her dosage as she would get very cranky and not eat but she was gaining weight so we weren't too worried. Ped. said she would soon grow out of it....she loved solid food and ate really well and would still take a bottle at night. She started to get bad again; not eating solid food and not taking a bottle; not able to put herself back to sleep at night and throwing up after almost every meal so we went back to Ped and in 2.5 months she only gained 7 ounces so he switched her medicine from Zantac to Prevacid. It was taking longer to help so I wanted to meet with gastro. and they started all the workup on her. We meet with the allergist on Tuesday; my mom thinks that me having milk really affects her but we haven't had any mucus in her poop yet so I am hoping its not milk allergy (forget the abbrev.). Little frustrated that her Ped. needed me to request a referral since she wasn't gaining weight but think he is just overworked and didn't want to alarm me. I am scared of the possibilities of what they can find but very glad to be actively doing something and not just hoping that her meds will continue to work. Since none of my friends have gone through this this forum is so nice to read that our Katie is showing the same symptoms as others and that other mommies out there are dealing with the same and harder issues than I am. Thanks for the hugs and they are more than returned!!!
