Its been a busy few days.
Nana and Papa had the kids this weekend. They came to get them around 9 in the morning and the kids were so excited. Its great that Helyn doesn't get upset about leaving us like Liam did. I think it helps to have her older brothers. They had a little birthday party for Nana on Saturday night with cake and presents.

Glen and I went to visit our friends Chris and Sandra that night. Glen helped Chris set up their home theatre and we had some drinks. It was nice to be out, but as per usualy, I over did it. LOL. I think I am starting to feel normal again today.

Helyn is still having constipation issues. We are now 8 days since her last movement. You can see her running around pinching herself to stop the poo from coming out at about 2 or 3 days after her last one. I gave her mineral oil every day last week to keep them softer or easier to come out and nothing. I gave her a laxative starting yesterday and some more today. You can tell that she has to go but she is trying really hard not to. I can't seem to get it through her head that she needs to go.

Liam is starting to go through the pre puberty tantrums now. He gets so worked up and breaks down so easily now. He wants his freedom to do as he chooses, but he is only 8 years old. I know things were different for us as kids and we did more than he does at his age, but yea... He is still a loving wonderful little man. We seem to fight almost every night for him to do his homework, his mind isn't there for remembering things, and he only wants to spend time with his friends.

Aidan has been doing well with his reading and school. He seems to understand that he needs to get his stuff done so he can spend more time with his friends or get rewarded with some computer time. He is taking swimming lessons with his class for the next 3 weeks. It would be nice if he could pass his current level. He is doing really well with Skating and is enjoying it.

The basement is almost complete! Glen layed down the flooring yesterday, and the painting is done. He has to do the stairs now, then the trim, the doors and then we should be ready to go!.
It looks so good. He and his friends have been doing such a great job. I am very thankful to everyone who has helped. Thanks sweetie.

I will post pics when its all done.

So that is it for now, Helyn and I are going to finish watching our movie and then go get the kids at school. ttfn.

Christine, you should really think about taking Helen to a pediatrician, get Laurie Anne to refer you. When Noah was having those issues, the ped said that by holding it in, they can actually do damage to their colon and intestines etc. She will probably just have to go on lactulose for 6 months as with that med there is no way for them to hold it in and make sure she drinks lots and lots of water. She just has to get used to going and knowing that it is not going to hurt. Poor girl, I know how Noah was when he was like that, it broke my heart.
