I had my first parent teacher conference ever with my son's teacher this morning, just something they do, and since he is only two and he just started preschool, this was a big deal.  It was scheduled at 11:50 and the school is about 12 minutes away.  Well about 11:25 i go to the bathroom and when i pulled my pants down i smelled a little whiff of soemthing, and so i looked and looked and didnt' see anything.  ANd then, just barely at the right side, down towardst he bottom, i saw the problem.  When i changed things yesterday, the bandaid part got folded up and was  under the wafer, and there was this little tiny part where no bandaid part was on my skin, so i guess it had the wafer lifted up just a bit.  Well, it is 11:25 so i have tops, 10 minutes, and i debating on whether i should just put some tape on it and pray or change it.  Well i finally decided to change it.  Well i was wearing this outfit that is pants and a jacket and it is brown, and the only pair of boots i have that match it are these knee high boots, and they are very stiff and rather hard to get on.  I can't even pull my pants down past the top of them.  SO there i go, laying on the floor, hardly able to even straighten my legs out, rushing like a mad woman trying to change this stupid bag so i can make the meeting! ANd praying that i would get it on right this time.  I hate to change it on Friday or Saturday cause i work those days and want to make sure i have it on right.  Anyway, i did get it in time, and got to the school with about 30 seconds to spare!

Wow - that could have been a disaster. Glad to hear you made it! How did the conference go? My first one was very memorable. I was so excited about it. My son was 3 and in a Montessori school that my husband and I had gone to some trouble to get him into.  Well, they kicked him out of the school at our very first conference - with no warning! I was pregnant with my second child at the time and very emotional. I was a wreck. Turns out he's ADHD and his teacher was ill-equipped to handle the situation. He's in 5th grade now and an honors student. Whenever I pass that preschool, I want to march in and show them his report cards! tongue

lol i think that was it, i was going like a mad woman, i left all my stuff just laying in the floor (not the dirty bag of course) but everything else.
It went well, she said hte only thing is that he keeps runnign out of the room. But he is ahead in everything, and she is afraid that he and one of the other kids are getting bored, so she is going to try to figure out a way to challenge them more. she was worried because like they are learning shapes and colors and letters and numbers and he knows all of those, except for some reason 9 and he won't say 17 wehn he counts, and the other little boy knows most of those.
candyland-i am so super nosy, why did he get kicked out?

Not nosy - just curious! :) His teacher said he was extremely bright, but very active, disturbing the other children, can't sit still, NOT Montessori material, blah, blah, blah. We knew he was overactive and talked to them about that before registering him. The whole idea of placing him in the school was to help keep him busy and focused, but this particular teacher just wasn't able to handle it. It was her first and last year at that school. I was upset because after nine weeks or so, the first problems ever brought to my attention were at this conference and there was a "pink slip" attached! -LOL As a parent and a former teacher, I can honestly say the situation was just terribly mishandled. Needless to say, when my second child was born and reached that age, I didn't even consider sending her to that school and she IS Montessori material!

I'm so glad your conference went well after that crazy start. Things like P/T conferences and school plays and birthday parties, etc., help me feel more "normal." Sometimes I feel like such an outcast living with this bag, but when I do normal things, I feel more mainstream - even if I do have to use the bathroom more often than most. I still have to empty this thing a couple of times an hour if I eat or drink anything. So much output!

isn't your ostomy pretty new though? If it is, it will slow down after a while, trying eating some bananas, that may help. Being able to go to things like that just make me more certain that having the surgery wass the right thing to do, before i could not have even been able to sit inthe car line to pick him up, now i have no worries, which is good cause i have to get there at 11:30 so i will be first in line, cause if i am not, he thinks i forgot him, lol.
that was awful for that school to do that!
