Healthy body, healthy spirit, healthy mothering. This is the journey I have set out on with my two amazing children.

Trying my patience

Just from the title, those who know me well are thinking

"What did Nevaeh do NOW!?!"

Well, she didn't actually do anything.  Not on purpose anyway.

The child hurt her neck.  One of those, pinched nerves that makes it hurt to blink, let alone have to move.  And my darling Nevaeh ALWAYS has to move.  She is a wiggler.  She squirms.  She makes odd little noises in the back of her throat for no apparent reason; and this week all this movement was causing her to sob her way through her entire day.

Normally, having a child that is hurting makes a momma sad.  This past week, it was sad and frustrating all at the same time.  It was my 1st week of classes at CU and I had to miss my physics lab.  Because I missed the FIRST physics lab I was automatically dropped from the class.  So I was sad that my baby was hurting.  Pissed off because I lost my spot in a great class.  Feeling guilty because I was pissed off.  Basically, I was a giant emotional wreck.

So, I spent about 3 hours today trying desperately (on a Saturday with no registrar help available) to get back into a class.  I'm stuck on a wait list and if I weren't so damn stubborn I might actually even be asking the big guy in heaven for a little supernatural help on this one.

new info: sunday 9pm  I just heard from my professor and this had nothing to do with the fact that I missed the 1st lab day.  The school itself screwed up and scheduled two different sections for the same time and there is not enough room (literally) for two sections worth of students.  Now I need to go to the physics department and see if there is a way for them to schedule me in the section that I need that works with my already full schedule.  This sucks.

Pure love

First I give you a kiss.

Then you kiss me back.

                                            I'll scratch your belly.

                                                    You rub my chin.

                                Please do not interrupt our moment.
