It was so good ! I've had Belle for nearly three months now so she's still fairly new to me. Feels like it has been so much longer! Haha the woman should have changed it from Alice to Alex or something similar, that's what I would have done !

Robyn - omg! That's so cute! I want mimzy to cuddle like that with me! I know she trusts me but I think she's just too hyper to settle down like that for any more than a minute or 2 hehe. She'll lay with me on the floor but no real cuddles

Bumble- what a surprise! Definitely good thing Ollie can be girl or boy name hehe. I'd be so sad if mimzy was a boy lol.

Hope everyones week has been good so far!!  I swear, it has been dragging for me like theres no tomorrow.  Maybe because I have to work Monday-Friday, ALL NIGHTS!  I hate working all night shifts.  By the end of it, I just feel dragged and getting up in the morning is so much more difficult, I don't know why though.  

Celebrated my birthday this past weekend -- which was loads of fun!  My boyfriend cooked the most amazing meal ever.  He's such a good cook.  Here's a pic:

 

 

 

It was a little depressing at the same time though.  My best friend came down from NY to visit me for my birthday for the weekend and she has changed sooo much -- or maybe she hasn't changed but rather I have.  She has a daughter and she's only 21 and her daughter will be two next month.  And it just astonishes and appalls me really... that she is so irresponsible with her baby.   It makes me angry really.  She loves her but her parenting style is definitely not one I approve of.   Maybe I'm just being too hard on her.  She is a 21 year old single mother.... who knows. My boyfriend made my birthday AMAZING though so I can't be too sad about the weekend!

 

I've been having so much trouble with one of my boy buns, Fleury.  He's been neutered since June and is STILL spraying.   He just won't catch on to his litter box and we've all been getting so frustrated that he's been even worse.  And since he gets put in his litter box as soon as he comes out now he won't even come out.  And if he does he'll run back in as soon as he thinks you're going to make him go in.  He's becoming less friendly so I told my boyfriend we're going to have to go a  different route with him.  He's getting flustered at us, we're getting flustered at him and it's putting some tension in our relationship with him and I definitely don't want to do that.  If anyone has any ideas, lemme know!  I made a post about it on here.  Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.

 

 

Hope everyone has a great day!

I was getting dressed to go to the gym and all of a sudden I hear bunstruction! I thought it was Chacha going at her cardboard box because she loves boxes! Uh, well, it wasn't. I walked into the sunroom and saw a SQUIRREL attacking the window screen! The windows are open for fresh air (but there are screens on it, plus my dad and I live on the top floor of an apartment) and I shrieked and closed the window!

I LOVE squirrels, just not when they are trying to get into the apartment! EEK!

We have a friendly squirrel at our new house. He's not afraid of us. He just comes near us and stares. Usually with a big nut in his mouth. LOL. But I don't blame you for shutting the window on him either Chacha.

TL, that pic made me hungry! lol. As for the friend with the baby, you can just hope for the best. And hope that she has a good family support system to help take care of the kid. No matter what age you are I believe it's important to have a good support system.

I'm having a really crappy week but I'm trucking on. :/

I honestly have no problem with younger people wanting kids. My mom had me when she was 20, and I turned out fine.

LoveChaCha I hope your dad feels better!

Tanlover I have to say, I totally and completely want to grab into the screen of my computer and steal that steak. It looks so darn good!!! But I totally feel you with the friend. I don't think it has anything to do with her being a single parent though. My mom was one and raised my brother and I fairly well. If anything she's using her being a single parent as an excuse for her lack of good parenting. My bf has a much older sister who had her first kid at 21 and she has a husband and her mom helping her out with raising the kid.  And if I'm being completely honest, even with all that help she is not doing a good job. I just don't agree with her parenting style. She refuses to discipline her son and lets her mom do it. And if her husband tries to discipline the kid will run to grandma and tattle! It's just not right in my head. The kid, love him to death, is a total brat. And my bf's sister just had a second one a few months ago. Good golly. It's just craziness. I would never raise my children that way.

Frankie - aww I'm sorry you're having a bad week! We're halfway done, hang in there!

I think that as long as someone is mature, responsible, and ready, she can be a good mother - it's just that the probability of this happening increases with age. Not saying that there aren't bad older parents...there are most definitely those too, as well as good younger parents. Haha who am I to judge; I can't even imagine having kids anytime in the next 7-8 years.


Speaking of kids though, I got to play with babies today which was really fun. I spent the afternoon in the hospital nursery and learned how to do physical exams on newborn babies. Literally newborns...less than 24 hours old!

I personally think that it just depends on the person whether or not to be a responsible mother, no matter what the age. I mean I think it's best to wait for kids but who am I to tell anyone they can't sooner? But whatever age you are, you should be responsible about it anyway. My mom had my oldest brother when she was 17. She's a total inspiration to me. His dad was abusive, she thought nothing of herself but knew that for the sake of her son, she had to get out of there. She did and moved in with her mom but would not take any help from her. She had no choice but to get put on food stamps & get a job. Then got off food stamps as soon as she could make it on her own

If you're 17 and have a kid but are a good mother, then that's great
But I do know quite a few people who don't and it's pretty sad

peppypoo - That's exciting! First newborn I ever held was my niece last year. She was so tiny! & just beautiful ^-^

I was looking on etsy for bunny things again and found this cute keychain

 

I been trying to look for one for Mimzy. I would like a plush one though because I have a collection of plush keychains I hang on my small purse. I like getting one from wherever I travel :]

Mimzy I want that keychain! xD Too cute!

Peppypoo that is so exciting! I would have been terrified. I'm so scared to touch babies younger than four months old. I'm just so afraid that I'm going to break them.

I was scared to hold my baby niece too lol. But I actually get nervous around little ones or toddlers anyway because the only 2 I really have been around much were my cousins 2 boys. He was really strict on what you could do with them or when you could hold them. I felt like I couldn't touch or even talk to them :/ so now I never know how to be around kids haha

thanks peppy! I think I'll just lay low for the rest of the week... Getting ready for school today I managed to break two toes and can't really walk. I'm going to have to miss class and stay in bed all day with my foot elevated. Bunjamin's enjoying it though. Keeps coming up on the bed to check on me, get his pets, chew my shirt then hop around. lol

Yeah, I understand all that. And it's really not because she's young physically -- but mentally she refuses to step up and BE the mom. She wants her baby when it's convenient for her. And she brings her non-serious relationships around her daughter, which in my opinion is a definite no-no. She has soo many people constantly watching the baby that it's not like she doesn't have time to see these people just on her own... it's simply because she has to work around when they find time for her, so she's willing to give up her baby time to spend it with them... knowing FULL WELL these people aren't going to remain in her life and don't want a serious commitment. Just seems irresponsible to expose her daughter to that type of behavior.

On a completely separate note --- I have no idea what to do with my boy bun who WILL NOT stop spraying. He's gotten so aggressive about it that I made an appt with my vet this Saturday to check and make sure she's gotta everything. I feel bad because we're constantly trying to make him go in the litter box and he gets so upset about it but if we don't then he just pees all over the floor (AND he peed all over my boyfriend the other night! :X) SOOO we're taking this step JUST to make sure... not sure if you guys remember the post from a few months ago about the bun who still had one testicle left! Now I'm all paranoid.... Oy vey.

@tanlover, while you're at the vet ask about possible bladder problems (sludge, infection, etc.). Before getting too frustrated with his litter troubles, you want to completely rule out any possible medical issue.

Doctor said my blood tests all came back normal, except my vitamin D was a little on the low side. I can't imagine that is the cause of all my problems, is it?

LBJ -- Vitamin D shouldn't cause any noticeable problems. I also have Vitamin D deficiency and you don't even know you have it. It doesn't effect you in a noticeable way. So that shouldn't be what's causing all your problems.

Malp -- Good idea, thanks! We love the little guy to pieces but he gets soooooo frustrated when you try and put him in the litter box when you notice he's going to go. And then gets insanely aggressive about it. He was never like that before his neuter at all. BAH. We were getting so flustered at each other that we had one-on-one playtime with just him and I for a little bit and he was back to his normal loving self. I hate seeing him upset. But I don't know how to fix the problem!

Vitamin D shouldn't be a big problem unless it's low along with calcium and parathyroid levels. Then you have a parathyroid issue. Just chipping in my two sense. I'm guessing they checked your calcium though and would've told you if that was low too.

So I didn't make it to class yesterday because I had an accident with a door and ended up breaking/spraining two of my toes or so. So I ended up in bed all day with my foot elevated. I can walk better today but if I do to much they hurt. I don't have any bruising so I'm leaning towards sprain but I have a knuckle that's not facing the right way on one of my toes so that's a little disturbing. Can't do anything about toes though except rest. Maybe it was a sign from the universe forcing me to take a break. I've had a bad week, nothing like LPT's week but a rough one none the less. So ready for it to be over. Boyfriend and I are going on a date to try to turn things around tonight!

Yeah, I don't know. I mean, I know it is bad for you over the long run if your vitamin D is low. It increases your risk for heart disease and such. As far as symptoms go, I don't think it would be as pronounced as the symptoms I am having. Oh well, I bought a vitamin D supplement to take anyway. Now all I am left with is an electromyography (the electrodes and needles thing) and an MRI. If those don't show anything, then he was talking fibromyalgia. He said we have to eliminate other possibilities though first. =\

tanlover - You have no symptoms whatsoever? When I googled it, it does talk about some muscle weakness.

FF - They checked a bunch of stuff. I'm not sure what it all was. All I know is that they took 5 vials of blood. Wow, that really sucks about your toes. I'm sorry. =\
