Mommy Monday

Monday, 20 August 2012

Well, after finding out soy is bad for Bug, I switched her back to regular formula. She seems to be tolerating it well enough. She isn't throwing up much, which is good since she had started to regularly throw up the soy. Only problem is that my sweet, quiet, unbelievably pleasant little girl now has a streak of monster.

Yesterday was especially tough. It was one of those days when I really could've used a little help from my mom. It's made me miss home even more.

There is good news on that front, though. For the last 2 days my hubby has been actively searching for a house near my mom! In the same town even! Anyone who knows us knows what a big deal this is.

My dad has offered to help us, but he has limited time at work, so we have to make the jump in the next six months of so. That's for the best anyways since his health is rapidly deteriorating. My one big worry is that he'll never get to hold his granddaughter, so I'm happy to go as soon as possible.

The downside to this, of course, is selling all of our things and finding a way to ship the stuff I can't part with. Oh, and the flight. Don't even get me started on that. I have no idea how we are going to travel from Manchester, UK to New Bern, NC (3 planes) with our suitcases, 5 year old, 10 month old (at most if we leave in 6 months), dog, & cat.

So, today I have Bug's passport interview (she needs it for Rome), and along with the 16 other things on my to-do list, I'm going to start researching things for the move-- like pet regulations and international moving companies. And prices to shop things to my mom. Box by box.

This may be the start of another really big adventure...
