Playing catch up again, but this time I blame Blogger!

I had quite a few things to post about recently and I saw where blogger was going to be down on Wednesday. Then the Wednesday down time stretched into Thursday so here I am playing catch up with the events going on in our house.

It has been a little over 3 weeks since Beanie had baby P. She started a new job that is part time at 2 weeks postpartum. She finally convinced her doctor that she was feeling find and needed to return to work at her full time job, which pays significantly more than the part time one she picked up to try and survive. He signed her release form this past Tuesday.

It makes me so irritated. First because the baby is only 3 weeks old. Second because Beanie is making her first real effort with breastfeeding and is old enough to actually enjoy the closeness it is offering her with the newest one. Third because she continues to do everything in her power to keep her little family afloat, while her deadbeat dickweed sits at home playing Xbox.

So now I have baby P Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday for 12 hours each day. Unlike the other girls who I keep the entire time, Beanie is trying to keep breast feeding so I meet her in the morning with the baby and she takes care of her/feeds her for the 10 hours she is home from work.

Yesterday morning I took her home, Beanie said she had pumped about 7 ounces the night before at work for me to use last night. She was going to pump one last time before I picked the baby up at 6 that evening. When I got there the dickweed (who doesnt want her breast feeding anymore) not only USED most of the milk she pumped for me, but he purposely didnt wake Beanie up to feed the baby for 2 of the feedings while she was home, after she specifically told him to wake her up. Then the asshat took the inside part of the breastflow bottle out, because he felt it was too hard for the baby to get the milk. The ENTIRE point of the breastflow bottle is to make it harder to suck, making it more like breastfeeding. It helps the baby continue to breastfeed when mom returns to work.

He even went so far as to call and make a WIC appt for the baby, so he could get formula. What he doesnt realize is that he isnt watching the baby... ever.  Beanie is pretty set on that, and for that Im very proud of her. Its bad enough that he propped bottles on the other 2 girls as early as a month old. But with Baby J and her run ins with the highway and passing motorists, him watching his children isnt a safe option. 

Now if she would just get the courage to either kick him out or leave the situation. It won't ever get any better Im afraid :(
