Sorry, just needed to vent to fellow dreadies and submerge myself in a positive environment right now


General Talk

Just an update for everyone: Took my daughter to the doctor and got an O.K. from her. So I got that base covered. Went to the daycare, showed her the note, and told her that my daughter would not be returning. She looked pretty pissed about it, but I have yet to hear from CPS, and I know that usually if there is a report filed, they would check in within 48 hours. I've dealt with DSS previously after a bogus report was filed (its the east coast version of CPS), and that's how they were, so I'm assuming the same with CPS.So hopefully everything will be ok. It's been nearly a week since I turned in the note and unenrolled her, so I'm crossing my fingers.

An idea on sea salt...


Dread Products

I think I got it from wal mart about a year ago. It's one of the vertical standing humidifiers rather than the flat square ones. Cost me like 20 bucks.

at the very beginning


Dreading Methods

I didn't start separating until they formed up a bit more than what you are at now. As long as they are not forming together at the root you should be fine. If you are really worried, go ahead and separate them it shouldn't hurt, just don't overdo it.Also, until they start to become more solid, there is really no need to blow dry. That very well might blow apart any babies that have formed and hinder the process at this stage. As long as your dreads are drying at a good rate, basically as long as they don't take more than a few hours to dry, then you should be fine without blow drying.

An idea on sea salt...


Dread Products

Something I discovered last night with sea salt.I have a humidifier which I use regularly otherwise I get all dried out when I first wake up. Sore throat, chapped lips, etc.Anyway, It has this little cup on the top of the contraption, where you can add oils and different what nots to it that the steam will pick up as it exits. So I had an idea, I put some sea salt in it, and left it on while I slept.And holy cow! Not only did I not wake up all achy this morning (for once), I actually see a noticeable difference in my morning dreads after just that one night.Has anyone else done this with their humidifiers before? Positive/Negative thoughts on this?

It makes me smile. :)


General Talk

I got to thinking this morning, that dreadlockssite has become a sort of dreadlock family week recently. Think about it, everyone is uploading beautiful photos of mommies with babies, happy families. There have been lots of discussions between members on forum and off about changes happening in their family. And not to mention an absolutely GORGEOUS pick for the featured photo on the main page.It all just brings one big happy smile to my face. So many things happening, some negative but mostly wonderful news! And that's just it, families have hard times, but when it boils down to it, that's what a true family is. No family is perfect. But as long as there is love and light and happiness, you know that everything will be ok. :)Really, I can't stop smiling.Much love to all the dreadie families out there! We are all so very blessed.

Recycling ideas with old clothing :)

Reading about crocheting made me actually wanna pull out my yarn and needle yesterday. In the midst of looking for my yarn basket, I actually found a shirt I was in the process of making last year and I finished it. Hooray for an extended attention span! lol

Oh dear, it seems as if I'm going to be staying in our bedroom tonight again, away from any social activity with the soon to be mom-in-law.

She just informed me that the reason why she is so upset about the situation is not because my child's well being is being threatened, but because she is worried that this might lead to gossip from other parents at the daycare, which may make it's way to her workplace, with will then reflect negatively on her and any possibility of promotion, raise, or that they might fire her for it. She also expressed to me that "you just don't understand how stressed I am about this, because it isn't affecting just you, now I might have to deal with gossip at work. Gossip, Mandy! I'm sorry, but I just don't deal with the stress of gossip very well."

I nearly flipped out. I think you could see steam coming from my ears...

I'm not sure if I can deal with all this. Is anyone here very good at positive affirmations or long distance energy work? Because I could sure use some positive energy right now.
