Well, this morning my son had his First Steps evaluation. He will be receiving therapy at some point soon. I pray that it helps. He will have an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, possibly a speech therapist, and there may be one more, I'm not sure. I will find out for certain on the 9th.
I am sooo very glad that he will be getting therapy. I pray that it helps him. I just want my baby to be healthy in every aspect.
I am so exhausted. I didn't really sleep last night, my son got me up at 5 this morning. I had his evaluation at 8:30. I am sooo tired and in so much pain. I just want to cry. I really do. I just want to curl up and go to sleep, but as long as my son is awake, I have to be as well.
On top of all that, my kitchen is a wreck. Hubby keeps saying that he will clean it and then he never does, which means that it's up to me. It is so out of control that I feel a flare coming on just thinking about it. *sighs* I just wish I had someone who could help me. I wish someone could come over and watch my baby while I take nap.

I'm glad your son is getting some help, Sassy!  That's good news.  It's always terrible when your child is having problems...no matter what they are!
 
As far as the kitchen goes, leave it for your husband.  He said he would clean it and so he needs to do that.  If you clean it, it lets him know how to handle other things you ask him to do.  I'd feed my child and myself and let hubby figure it out until the kitchen is clean and you are able to prepare meals again.
 
I did this with my husband...twice.  Once with laundry.  He piled his dirty underwear up behind the bathroom door and I told him I would only wash what was in the hamper so, one day, he ran out of clean undies and had to go behind the bathroom door and try to find the cleanest of his dirty undies to wear to work.  Guess what?  He always put his dirty clothes in the hamper after that. 
 
The second time was for help in the kitchen and I did go on strike for a couple of days until he got the message.  I think these guys had doting moms that let them get away with all of this.  I know that was the case with my husband.

Sassy, I wish I could come over and help you.  I'm glad your son is going to get help.  As far as the kitchen is concerned I agree with Sherrine.  I would not clean it if your husband had said he would.  I've done this sort of thing more than once.  I'd use paper plates if I needed to.  Good luck and I hope you feel better later in the day.

Hi Sassy,

It is great that Alex will be able to recieve therapy soon.
I hope he takes a good nap this afternoon so you can get one too!

Don't do anymore housework than you are able to do. You will only burn yourself out.
When hubby gets home he can help out, remind him that he said he would do it.
Like puppylover said " I'd use paper plates if I needed to."

Hope you are able to get some well deserved rest!

Well, Alex did take a nap, so I was able to take one as well. I was happy about that. I plan on going to bed early tonight, though. I am still really tired, and I need more rest. I am going to leave the kitchen for the hubby. You are right, Sherrine. Except in my husband's case, his mom didn't do everything. She pretty much did nothing. Her house was always a wreck. It still is a lot of the time. She just is lazy at times and doesn't feel it necessary to clean. I would clean the kitchen if it wasn't such a wreck. It is beyond me right now. I'll do my best to keep it up once it is clean, but the hubby keeps saying he is going to do it, so he needs to do it. It is the only thing I have asked him to clean...well, that and the litterbox. I told him I would take care of the rest. It seems fair to me. I know he works hard and is tired, but I have asked him for his help and he needs to step up to the plate.

I don't know what issues your ds has, but early therapy is excellent. My 2ds has been in speech therapy since he was 2, he was evaluated at 18 mths. He is now 6. He has made huge leaps and strides in his speech, and all the therapists I've worked with have always made it fun. We were also watching his fine motor skills, but by 3 years old, he had caught back up to be on par for his age with no help. His gross motor skills are amazing though, the little monkey has been able to do acrobatics much earlier than his peers.

I do hope you feel better soon. I've done that, refused to clean something that my dh said he was going to do, or should have done. I always caved first, as he just doesn't see the mess like I do, lol. But I've really let things slide that I never used to. Eventually, you can only do so much, and I've discovered there is more to life than a perfect house. Good luck!

Well, yesterday, I finally caved and just did the kitchen. It was so hard. I had to take several breaks, but I finally got it done. The thing that upset me, though, is that I didn't get a thank you from my hubby until I discreetly pushed him for one. Sometimes I feel really under-appreciated. I just want him to take more notice of the things that I do. Most of the time, instead of thanking me for when I do something, he just rolls his eyes and tells me not to overdo it. Kind of makes me mad at times. But, oh well. He's a guy.
I really do hope that my son can get the help that he needs. I just feel really helpless when it comes to his eating, so I am thankful that they are going to get him a therapist to help him with it.
