my sunshines doctor scare


By hippie mama, 2010-08-09
today my husband and i took our son Gauge to the doctor. we noticed that recently this cough he had was getting worse and worse and last night he scared us because he sounded like he was choking on the wetness his cough was producing. we also noticed that his cough was eerily simular to the commorcial for pertusis aka whooping cough. the couching so badly that they sound as if they are gasping for air in between each cough. not a pretty sound that you want to hear your two year old son having thats for damn sure. so as scared as we both were john and i decided to take gauge to the doctor today. after hearing the cough for herself Gauges pediatrician started him on the meds for whooping cough as a better safe then sorry scenario and we had to take him to the hospital to test him for the sickness. in this case they stuck a swab far into his nose and are sending it to be tested right away. we will know in 5 days or so if it was actually whooping cough. thankfully my sons pediatrician assured us that shes hopeful that it wont be she said the likeliness is about 25% chance but just the severity of the cough and already canceling out pnemonia she just wants be be sure since as of now there are no cases of it in our area although i have heard that its making a comeback unfortunatly. so lets hope he just has an upper respiratory thing instead of a severe sickness such as the previously mentioned. but even though gauge took his first dose of his medication today we have already seen a significant change in length between coughing and even just the sound of his voice. he slept for about 4 1/2 hrs today wich is about double the usual amount and he seems like hes on the fast track to a successful recovery no matter what he actually has. ill make sure to keep those of you who read this updated because i know that alot of you on here love my little dready toddler and even though most of you dont personally know him he touches everyone heart with his beautiful smile. i wish you all could meet him in person. hes one of those kids that just light up a room and create smiles on everyone he meets. hes so warm and generous and say such smart and entertaining things. hes definatley ahead of his time in so many ways. hes good at reading ppl and their moods as well as very intelectually advanced when it comes to speech, numbers, animals colors all of the above. i hear from so many diffrent ppl young and old how awesome and cute he is. he really is my sunshine as well as the light that shines on others aswell. i just cant think of one negative thing about him besides the fact that theres only one of him. but i wouldnt have it any other way. im definatly very proud to be his momma.

my family = my world


By hippie mama, 2009-12-17
lately i been realizing that john and i are doing really good on hardly arguing at all. we been laughing together more then lately and hes been way less stressed out. im just so happy that i got to marry a man who meshes so well with me and im realizing how lucky i am. i know alot of people out there have problems finding the right man and i just hope one day they can find a match to them as good of a match as i found for me. i think our secret is that we are such wierdos.. i honestly dont beleive anyone else would know how to deal with us and this is a reason we are soulmates. ive also been seeing that since johns been home more bcuz of the break between semesters that him and gauge have been getting a even stronger bond.you can really see their love for eachother shine. i just hope that it wont be to big of a change when he goes back since he will only be going three days a week next semster. its just so awesome to see the two people you care about most have this great bond and love for one another. i mean u hear these horror stories of dads not wanting to be around their children or running away from the responsibility and im just so thankful that my husband is a real man who will do anything and everything for his son. i know that even if soemthing happened between him and i (im confident that it wont) that he would still be the biggest male figure in gauges life. anyone can be a biological father but it takes a very special man to be a daddy. i just been taking a step back and realizing how happy and thankful for my immediate family lately i mean they arent just my husband and son they are the main two ppl in my life they are my two best friends and i know that we all would do anything for eachother and that no matter what nothing can come between our love for one another. i know if someone would try to hurt either of them i would just lose it. they are my everything and ive never seen such a loving dad or such a beautiful smart happy loving little boy in my life. they truly are my entire world. I LOVE THEM MORE THAN LIFE!

well its official


By hippie mama, 2009-11-10
its official this coming summer my hubby son and i are all going to move to indiana around lowell. i really cant wait. its like a new beginning in a new place. i have heard that ohio is one of the most judgemental places so im hoping this might be a little better. i mean everyone has their good ppl and bad ppl though. im just glad that johns family out there are willing to help me out by watching gauge while john and i both can get a job. its important to me to not make my hubby feel like hes responsible ofr everything especially since hes going to college too, this way i can help with working and maybe take a load off his shoulders. anything for my family. i mean itll be an adjustment not being around gauge all day long by myself but i do think itll be for the better. plus my son will get to know his other more open side of the family. jihns mom is alot like me in the whole eat healthy stay healthy ideal. im just really excited about it and i thought id share.

why look down on dreadlocks?


By hippie mama, 2009-10-01
hi everyone im 23 and im married to a man with dreads as well. we have a son gauge and he is 16 months in a few days and we started his dreads about 2months ago or so. all is good we get the awe how cute the whole family matches comments and we get the questions on how its done and all those good things that i honestly dont mind. now lately since gauges hair has been looking more unkempt then it has in the past i been noticing the rude comments. like we were at the park and i over heard this lady complaining to another parent and all i could make out was " oh my thatg poor child like he doesnt know any better....blah blah blah" then the next week i go to another park and a lil girl goes look at his clown hair and a boy said thats stupid" now mind you we had a bunch of better comments sying its cute and the kids love it but it jsut sucks that as a human being the bad comments linger with you ya know. and then last week this one really got to me. we were walkin through the mall and i let gauge walk instead of forcing him to sit in a stroller and he likes to go to people ans smile at them. so he walks up to this one lady cuz she was waving at him and the lady sitting next to her as i was walkin away with my son she looks at her teenage son and says" now thats just sad" now when i heard this i turned around cuz i was angry and i was about to say something to her but she seen me turn around and her and her son started walkin off. now what am i supposed to do in these situations? i know what i want to do is be like" do u realize that ur judging a 16 month old child?" or say well arent u a beautiful role modle u dumb b***h. or even better yet just plain out say"for ur information my son is ver well taken care of. hes on a vegetarian diet which is not only good for his health but alos our enviroment. hes only had a cold once in his life. we feed him organic food on the regular to make sure he doesnt get any harmful pesticides. he has a mother and a father and best of all he loves everyone and everyone whose smart enough to know it loves him too. and oh by the way since ur obviously ignorant to any other lifestyle then the one you live people who have dreads do wash them" thats what i want to say. but i just dont know how to go about this. i mean i know from my expierence that eople harshly judge us but its alot more personal when they judge my son. then i just get pissed. i mean ask me question dont just think im neglecting him. he looks so cute in them and he loves to shake his dreads so i dont want to cut them either. any advice?
