Kicked out of daycare!

I know you're thinking to yourself, "how could this happen?" But it did! My son was kicked out of daycare. He has developed a habit of biting, which I honestly don't know how or where he got this habit. He doesn't ever bite with us, and when he does he gets in trouble. But for some reason, with other kids, he just can't stop. I don't know what the heck is wrong. Anyway, another parent became upset that my 18 month old bit their child and the babysitter told us not to bring him back! Just out of the blue! In one day and out the next. How do you think this makes him feel? I am completely stunned because how could they possibly think that he is doing it on purpose!?? He is 18 MONTHS OLD!! He doesn't understand! But, the way I figure, he must have learned this defense mechanism because of other kids. So, it's probably better we had to get a new babysitter. I'm just incredibly PISSED OFF. Not because we had to get a new babysitter, but because they treated my son like he was completely expendable. In one day and out the next. What a way to treat a baby. (Although I do understand why the other parents were upset. I wouldn't want my child to get bitten either. But does he need to be kicked out of daycare and treated like an outcast??? The answer is no.)
Anyway, on a brighter note..... we found a new babysitter and she is wonderful. It also helps that she is LDS. I believe that this was truly a blessing in disguise. Hunter's entire demeanor was different when we picked him up today. He was refreshed, energetic, and happy. He took a 3 hour nap, which helps tremendously! He came home and played with us and snuggled me for an hour! It was a wonderful evening tonight!

Mimi and Papa

What a crazy few weeks it has been. We started back to school on July 13th and decided that we would let Hunter go stay with Grandma and Grandpa Rogers for a whole week! It was really hard on us being without him. Honestly, we didn’t know what to do! Nothing felt normal. I know it was supposed to be a break for us, but I really hated it.

Grandma and Grandpa took Hunter up to Greer for the Cordes family reunion and so, Keith and I went up there to pick him up. While we were there, my Grandpa Hews (we call him papa) fell and broke his hip. They sent him to Tucson to have surgery. While at the hospital they discovered a blood clot in his lung and that he had some heart conditions. We were extremely worried about him for the surgery and the doctors were not exactly optimistic. The whole entire family was at the hospital for his surgery. Luckily, his surgery was successful and he did wonderful. He is now in a rehabilitation facility in Tucson and he is trying to get used to walking again. Mimi (my grandma) has been right there by his side the entire time. She is such a wonderful and strong woman. She is wonderful example to our whole family.
