Friday Follow is BACK!

It's P is for Pajama Day at my house today! I think we'll have an in door picnic and eat pancakes to celebrate!I'll be posting more about our letter P week which will include some GREAT pictures from Pizza with Papa( aka-my dad)! Come back and check out my new P post tomorrow! 
But for today...

Friday Follow is back! This is my 3rd week participating and I am really enjoying reading the new blogs that pop up on the list each week. I love getting new followers too! It's an awesome idea for bloggers to check out other blogs and learn.  It is also great for blog readers too! Readers can find new blogs to enjoy! So, Show your support and participate in your own way.

Here is how it works for Bloggers!

--Link up your blog name and URL using the MckLinky below. Only need to add on one blog to be seen on all the blog hops.

 --Follow the Friday Follow hostesses listed in the first 3 slots. 

--Follow as many blogs as you'd like.

--Take a moment to comment on the blogs telling them you're from Friday Follow.

--Follow back when you get a new follower through Friday Follow.

The Blog Hop is the same at each of our three hosts blogs so you do not have to add your blog at each site. Just one - but you can follow each blog. Follow a few or follow them all.

The list is new each week. The links do not carry over. Please link up each week for new participants to find your blogs. The list is only open to add your blog links on Fridays. It will be visible all week to visit the blogs listed.

Due to the overwhelming number of entries each week, we understand everyone may not be able to follow every blog including ourselves. To keep it fun, follow what you can at your own pace. We appreciate your understanding and thank you for your continued participation!"

Snappy Attack.

Sometimes, I feel a little Snappy. 
 Not a good Snappy.
Not the kind of snappy to describe music.
Not the kind of snappy to describe an outfit. 
No, I feel the BAD, Snappy. 
The... grumpy kind of Snappy.
The... I woke up on the wrong side of the bed Snappy.
The... I need MORE COFFEE ,Snappy.
The... NO, I am not in the mood, Snappy.
The... DO what your mother told you, Snappy.  
I don't like when Snappy rears her ugly head.
I am positive no one else likes Snappy.
I can feel a Snappy attack coming.
I try to stop the Snappy attack.
But sometimes, a little Snappy sneaks out.
Snappy is contagious.
If I feel a little Snappy, 
Everyone feels a little Snappy!
A little Snappy becomes VERY Snappy.
Go away Snappy!  
I need to stop the Snappy attack!
I know! Where's the Chocolate??

A poopy poopy poopy poopy day! Literally!

I apologize in advance for the poopy  topic, but I KNOW someone out there has either dealt with this, or will deal with it. Perhaps this blog will be helpful to them. Maybe your comments can be helpful to me. And for those of you who don't have kids, you can just laugh at the fact that I am dealing with this and you aren't. I will do my best to talk about this the least gross and most tactful way I can. I can't believe I am writing this, but I am. Here it goes!

For the almost 2 weeks now, Ruby has been in big girl underwear. She has been really great going pee pee in the potty, but was saving all of her BMs for nap time or overnight. I noticed things getting getting more and more runny ( you know what I mean). I was a little concerned, but I there was no change in her behavior and she never had a fever. Every once in a while she would say her tummy hurt. I would encourage her to go poop to feel better, but she never would.

Well yesterday, things got worse. It was a poopy poopy day! Ruby had 3 BM accidents in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. Each time, I had to put her in the shower, clean her up, and do laundry. At that point I started to really worry that she was sick or something was REALLY wrong. She was obviously caught off guard by the episodes when they happened and she was VERY embarrassed.  So, I called the doctors office and spoke to the nurse.

The nurse was very helpful. She told me that it could be a bug, but she was willing to bet that all of this upset stomach was due to Ruby refusing to go to the bathroom. Stool- holding syndrome??? She said that if it didn't get better Ruby was going to have to get put on a stool softener. UGH! She said to put her on the potty and just let her sit for a long time. THAT is no easy task with Ruby. She cries and cries and says she is all done. I feel like I am just making things worse and that I will scar her about going potty for life.

So, we have to increase fiber, lay off of the milk, and encourage pooping. LOVELY! We'll see how it goes. I guess my little darling really is full of it! I just hope this gets better soon. ANY advice or sympathy would be greatly appreciated.  Today has been a less poopy day. I would have thought that was a good thing, but now I am not sure! OHHHHH. Ruby, Ruby, Ruby! I love you girl, but seriously I'm tired of dealing with your poop! No pun intended... maybe just a little.
