Head Banging

What She Wore: Striped tee in spring colors; khaki shorts; slip-on tennis shoes.

What She Ate: I don’t want to say. Ok, nuggets from Chick-fil-a. I’m trying to quit, but it’s hard.

Ever just feel like banging your head against the wall?

The cat is still gone, so I need to figure out some sort of sign solution. I feel like a degenerate letting my cat run off with no collar and no microchip.

And, for whatever reason, Charlie is refusing to participate in his therapy. No sitting, no head control, no nothing. I thought maybe I was imagining it, but he did it today for the physical therapist too.

I’m just so frustrated.

  1. It’s certainly not your fault that the cat ran off, it was one of those total random things. As I was moving my cat to the new place on Saturday, just carrying him without a crate, I was holding on to him extra tight thinking of how yours ran off, I thought you know anything could spook him and I bet he could wriggle out of my grip and take off. I’m still hoping if you put up signs he will turn up, I’d just print out a bunch with his picture, what kind of a neighborhood do you live in, could you go door to door to your closet neighbors asking if they’ve seen him?

    Bummer of a day for you. I hope both are resolved soon.

  3. Maybe Charlie’s just cranky and wants the day off…maybe it’s the weather.

    Hope the signs turn up the cat. If Graye Khat got out, I’d be freaking out–luckily she’s pretty slow, so I can usually catch her.

  4. Charlie is going to have off days, all children do. Welcome to the stubborn boy days of motherhood mom! Even a gorgeous boy like Charlie is going to have them!


  5. You are so not whining. It is never easy and some days you just wonder. I know. Take a deep breath, and another, and know that this is going to happen again, he is your son after all! :-) He is just showing his little personality, and he is going to have days when he isn’t going to want to do diddly squat for anyone, even you. Those days will try your patience, but hang tough, these too will pass.


  6. Yes i have often felt like banging my head! Hope things look up soon.

    I’m sure it’s frustrating, but everyone has off days.

    I’m still pulling for the cat to show up!!

    Hi Katy,
    I’m a lurker on your site. I like to hear about Charlie’s progress and see his pics. He’s such a cutie! I’m sorry he’s not cooperating very well with his therapy this week.
    I saw your comment about Ambrotose on Nelba’s site. I’m hoping you could share with me what exact product and what dosage you use and other details if you don’t mind.
    I have twins 3.5 y.o. born at 28 weeks. My son suffers from reflux since birth and I’m hoping maybe Ambrotose will help him too.
    My email: wgalina@hotmail.com
    Thanks and I hope Charlie is doing better today,

  10. Hi Katy,

    I guess Charlie is having one of those days – he rather play than cooperate.

    Fingers crossed for Max. I hope the signs work – would you like me to post something on Manny’s site? WIsh I could go knocking on doors for you…

    I had a kitten for one night and it disappeared without a trace. :( I was not a very good kitten mother!

    Kids have off days, but it sounds like it’s been a bit longer? Are you worried about the shunt? G has some days where he’s downright uncooperative with the PT. Familiarity breeds irritability sometimes. LOL
