Be who you are, and say what you feel because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter

That is a great quote from Dr. Seuss! I'm not a huge fan of his books, but I am becoming a bigger fan of the man himself.
It makes me think of what Jeffrey is going through every pincare! He SCREAMS! I mean not just a cry or a bawl, but an all out deafening, blood curdling, I-am-being-murdered scream. Everyone hears him whether your ear drum happens to be right up in there or if you're a few floors up from the basement, where we are. I know it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, but it's tough when people make comments like, "Oh, you're the screamer!" "Yeah, we know you were doing pincare. We heard!"

Jamie and I are trying to figure out how much of it is pain and how much is drama. You can make a child stop doing something when they break the rules, you can make them finish their vegetables, but how do you make them stop freaking out during pincare?
During and after pincare we are sweaty, frustrated and just need to exhale. Sometimes, I've even cried.
We try to just post as much positive aspects of this as possible, but we are also keepin' it real. PINCARE SUCKS!!!!!


  1. Yeah.... remember you are in a whole different dimension and you won't be there forever. It's not like all the other 'real' life rules apply. You guys are doing great. "Just keep moving forward" like you are and when you're faced with situations... laugh some and cry some as the need arises - isn't that what Jeffrey's doing?

  2. You're a good Mama.
