Play time [ Friday
January 26th, 2007 at 10:47am ]
I seem to be running out of ways to entertain my 4 month old daughter. Every time I put her on the floor for tummy time and back time she spits up. I don't want to leave her in her bouncy chair forever. Ideas on how to play with her? Also I would like to know how to help encourage sitting up...

Introduction [ Monday
January 22nd, 2007 at 11:22pm ]

Hello everyone...

I just created an LJ account... so I am rather new to all of this.

I am a Women's Studies major at IUPUI, declared through the Individualized Major Program, IUPUI doesn't offer a standard women's studies major. I am also a sociology minor and toying with the idea of getting a philosophy minor.

I am a single mother to a wonderful boy, Ezekiel, age 4.

I am struggling with all of the roles I am in currently. Mother, student, worker, girlfriend...etc...

I do rather well at school, maintaining a 3.4 GPA in my junior year, but (and you have to love those) my son is going to be starting kindergarten next year and well...his behavioral problems have come to the forefront of my worries. He's smart and is within his age ranges educational expectations, but I am so worried about school for him.

So yeah... I guess I needed/wanted to vent that out...

Name of college/university? Hudson Valley Community College this semester and as of fall 2008 I'll be a Russell Sage College student.
Major/Minor? Creative Arts in Therapy major and a Dance minor
Class standing? I should technically be a fourth semester sophmore, but since I've changed my major 45436 times I'm a second semester freshman. But what does that really mean to anyone? As long as I have a 4.0 its all good.
Anything else you wish to add: My daughter just started daycare this week and it makes me so sad to leave such a little helpless infant at daycare... :( It makes me sad to leave her every morning. On Tuesday I left her for the first time and I cried my eyes out. Poor baby. :(

I had my daughter in my last year of high school, and had to take some time off to work full-time to support the 2 of us. After getting into a relationship with my now fiance, he decided that I should go back to school. I agreed. After getting laid of my job, I decided to apply for school. I am so glad that I did...everything is wonderful and I am moving towards my goal of being a teacher.
