I've got this Mother and Grandmother Thing!!



Saying goodbye....


 
Last week was my last week working as a full time teacher. I will still be substitute teaching but I will focusing more on family and Nursing school. Some of these children I have taught since they were little infants. Some of my co-workers got together and gave me a few cards, a cake, several coca-colas, and a farewell poster. The top picture speaks volumes... I will miss them all.

Reading material for a Doula training opportunity

 



I am really looking forward to a Doula training coming to Birmingham. I was lucky enough to get a scholarship to attend. I can't wait to dive into the reading material.

Back Home


Winter sun on our cloth diapers....



I have missed hanging my cloth diapers out in the sun. It was a cold but sunny day. I like this hanger. It is heavy duty and holds a lot....

Changes at this time between Winter and Spring. I didn't quite do all I wanted to do today but I did get some of my personal space set up at home..

What a post-partum doula does.....

There is almost nothing a post-partum doula doesn't do. Housework, childcare, lactation support, emotional support for mom, and so much more.....

Whatever the family needs within reason. I met a new client today...

Etta's well visit

Etta is my tiny baby and may always be.... That is OK but I am a little worried that she hasn't gained weight. She is still getting taller though. Her Provider wants her to increase her protein intake. Her go to was to ask me to give her Pedisure. I just totally disagree with that. Pedisure is laced with chemicals, corn syrup, and useless empty calories. I was worried when I weaned Etta she would loose calories and nutrients but her diet has a lot of variety. She eats everything. She eats eggs, meat, milk, cheese, and yogurt. I really don't see how I can add a lot more protein to her diet. According to Early Intervention she is still globally delayed. According to her medical team she has FTT (failure to thrive) and a speech delay. She is scheduled for more blood work to check on several things. Hopefully we will have answers soon....
