Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Y'all I hope I didn't offend you! Seriously! I was only 24 when I had Morgan. Actually only 4mths into 24. It's not really my niece's age that's her problem...it's her maturity. Also, I still think of her as a "child" so no matter what age she is, it seems too young to me. kwim?

Please forgive me for coming across the wrong way. I'm just really upset about the whole situation. I could get into some really boring details but to make a long story short...My sister's dh is an obsessive freak. He is the only person in the house with a driver's license even though my sister and her two dds could have one. He barely allows them to do anything. My sister hasn't had a friend in 20something years except his family. They all live in the same "neighborhood" so they are all my sis has. My sis and my nieces have been brainwashed into his way of life. All they know is family drama and that type of nonsense. It's just a very sad situation. You know my other niece is 17 and has the boy that will be 3 in Dec. I know there are much worse situations out there, but this one is very close to me. I've tried to help them sooooo many times. I finally had to give up several years back. You can't help people that won't help themselves. I listen to my sis rant every Sat morning for an hour or more. I give what advice I can. I try to talk to them about church, but it does no good.

Girl, don't you worry about it for a second. I'm totally not mad at you or offended or anything. I just like to remind people that us youngsters (LOL) can be good parents too. There is just this idea these days in our culture that you need to be 30 something to be a good parent and ready for children, and that just isn't true. The truth is, if I hadn't have had Cooper when I did, I'd probably never had kids. I will likely have a hyst before I'm 30. I had to take megga injectable fertility drugs to have Cooper and I was 20 when we started ttc. It took several cycles of treatment for me to get pg, so he is a huge miracle for us. That's where I'm coming from, but it is nothing against you. Don't sweat it. I still love ya!

WHEW! I thought my big mouth got me in trouble when I didn't mean for it to, lol. I'm glad y'all weren't offended. You know I think no less of anybody based on age. Heck....y'all are the best moms I've ever known! And like I said...I was only 24 when I had Morgan and if I had gone through this stuff...there prob wouldn't be a Maggie now.

Love y'all!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
