If you have a wet shop vacuum I would try to get up as much as possible immediately. Then I would call a carpet cleaner and utilize their expertise. Some chemicals can cause fading and bleaching. If it were on your hands, I would recommend lemon but not sure about carpet. Ammonia and water gets out smells but not sure the type of carpet you have so a professional is advised.

Isn't raising children fun?

((((RW))))), I do know the feeling you must be having right now. It's frustrating, to say the least, when just corecting normal problems is a little out of our financial realm. It's scary on the weeks that the money I have is the money I have-period. You may concider keeping a little box hidden somewhere that you always throw your loose change in, just for in case. Not that it would help in this situation, but it feels better knowing that if you absolutely had to live outside your basics budget, it would be a little doable.

I think if you pour some baking soda on it and vacume that up, then when your husband gets home, maybe hit the grocery store and get a 75 cent bottle of club soda and pour that over it to bubble up the remains, blot it with a towel. Sooo sorry to hear you're having one of those frazzeled "I must be the only one that deals with this stuff" days--if it's any comfort, exoticbaby filled my shoes with cat-litter the other day...then ate some for good mesure. You are not the only one, I promise, there are others out there who are totally beating their head into a wall over normal parenting problems some days. Hang in there, you're doing great, hon.

Well, my therapist says, just by knowing what mistakes we made or what mistakes our adults made, we are guranteed to give our children a better foundation by at least 50%. I'll take that 50% happily!!!!

they are cute but there is now doubt that you will eat your words lol. Life happens we just have to learn how to deal with it in a rational fashon. Yes I am on the good side of my Bi polar disorder and I am making the best of it. Later today I am going to go buy a few coloring books one for each of my boys and one for me. Yeha I got to go

RW2, Wal Mart has thse little 88 cent magnadoddle type things in their novelty toys, Exoticbaby loves hers. Just something to think about.

Rev, there are some days that all the cuteness in the world can't get her back on my good side, but other days that I'll walk into the room to find her buck naked with marker all over her and drawing on the TV and just MELT becasue seh looks so delighted with herself or to see me. As RW says, you just kind of take it as it comes, the moodswings as wella s the rest. I wouldn't trade it for all the posh relaxation in the world though. Never EVER planned to like being a mother, but it's what it is now, and it's the only thing I could ever imagine myself being.

And yes, about a millon times, rev, you will eat your words. I STILL do it and I've had her for two years already! "Oh, she's so cute" turns to "that kid is a demon, literally" more often than I care to say! 😉

Ladies:

I would like to pass on a bit of info an elderly lady at church told me when I was pregnant the first time. We won't discuss how long ago that was of course. But, she told me.... "pray every night for your child by name and you will see all the difference in the world". Well, I have been mostly faithful to do as she had suggested me to do and there is a big difference. I think there is a difference in their attitudes and in your handling of things. And... I think that if you pray for your child every night by name it's kinda hard to kill them when they become teenagers.

Enjoy your kids every day. They are the biggest blessing you will ever receive. Even in the hard times.

🙂
