Snowman the sweet potato 2.0

Welcome to the little sweet potato 2.0 and how things are different this time around!

For those that are not aware because you aren’t following me on twitter or facebook, this little sweet potato is also a boy. He is our little Snowman and due in December! His name is Kalvin.

Lol, we played the guess his name game and let me tell you, the names people guessed during 3 rounds was just priceless. No one came close to getting it right until I gave a huge clue, but it was still fun!

So, all about this little guy!

1. I don’t feel him move as much as I did with Baby J and that’s taking some getting use too. As tiny as I am I’m use to feeling them fluttering around by the time I reach 3 and a half months! Nope, this time around the layout of inner parts makes it a bit different.
2. 2. He was not shy at all about letting us know he was a boy right out the gate. Thanks to Aira who described our ultrasound picture, hahaha, he’s posing for the whole world to see.
3. 3. I’m still sitting under 160 pounds at 18 weeks. Whereas with peanut I was almost 170.
4. 4. He loves pineapples, eggs ***thank god***, orange juice, corn and string beans mixed together, anything from taco bell, salads and yogurt!
5. 5. Now with this little bugger I get no gentle nudge of hey mommy I’m hungry! Nope, right out the gate it’s hey woman feed me and feed me now!

The most adorable thing is peanut and the baby to be. Lol, he likes poking my belly and saying hi to his little brother. He even gives him a kiss. I can’t wait until the day when Kal kicks him back to see what he does, hahahah.

Our next doctors visit is on Wednesday August 1, 2018. I think at that time is when we will be picking the eviction date for the little Snowman. So until then, have a great night. It’s time to feed the Snowman before he kills me, lol.

Bad mommy and daddy, I said just me

What? My mommy and daddy did, not, listens, too, me! I tolds them no no no no no, I did nots want any brothers or sisters, just me! They did nots listens!

My mommy tells me that there’s a baby in her tummy’s. I likes telling the baby night night and then poking it! Mommy says I should nots do that cause it will kick me back. I just giggles! Baby won’t kicks me, poke poke poke!

Anyways, mommy is trying to teach me to say my little brothers name. She says I sound likes I’m calling him cow, hehehehe! Shhh, I don’t think I was supposes to tells you that part! Ah well, what do I do? I have this baby coming who will takes all my mommy’s attention from me’s! Daddy’s too, but that just can’t happens, no no no no no!

I goes to sleep now. I have school tomorrows!

Night night baby. Remembers, I’s the big brother, k?

Hospital visit brings shocking results

Everyone that knows me well enough knows that I absolutely hate going to doctors and especially hospitals. I mean, if I’m going to be miserable and what not, then I can be that curled up in bed, right? All they will tell you is, get rest, drink fluids, take whatever medicine that you can end up getting over the counter or even worse, we can’t find anything wrong! So, why waist all that time when you can skip that step and start doing that from the comfort of your bed?

Well, those were my thoughts until early Monday morning of July 10, 2018.

It all started on Sunday, July 9, 2018 at the bright hour of 6AM when my adorable little peanut, baby J decided it was time to wake up. We had our usual morning cuddles while I grumbled at him about waking up so early on the weekend and him just smiling away while poking me in the nose, ha!

At that point when peanut decided it was time to then start beating up mommy for his morning routine I noticed that I just was not feeling well. Definitely an unset tummy. No biggy, it wil go away in time. I’ll just drink more fluids and eat light. That usually works.

Hi toilet, how are you?

Starting around 1PM things changed. I started getting sick every hour no matter what. I eat, it went to my friend Mr. Toilet. I drank, same results. Ugh, no fun especially while trying to watch a 22 month old.

At 1AM on Monday is when I started getting concerned. I was visiting my friend the toilet every 20 minutes. It got so bad that I woke up the little peanut who came and stood in the bathroom with me a couple of times. Poor baby!

So, it was time that I broke down and take my ass to the hospital. I decided if I could hold off I’d go right after we got peanut off to Kindercare for the day.

Hospital visitng brings shocking news!

So I finally get to the ER around 11AM on Monday, July 10, 2018. I won’t explain here why it took that long to get to the ER because it would make the entry too long and that’s a whole other rant, smiles.

So, once I’m finally at the ER I find out that I am indeed seriously dehydrated and immediately given fluids and medicine to help settle my stomach. Blood work is done to find out why all of a suddent I got sick and what’s going on to make my poor tummy so agitated.

Around mid afternoon here’s what happened!

Docotr, hey there May, we found out what’s making you so ill all of a sudden
Me, *thoughts* oh dear, something not good.
Me, Ok, what’s wrong?
Doctor, You’re pregnant!
Me, drops phone on the bed and stares at the doctor
Me, I’m what? No way, are you sure? Huh? I’m what?
Doctor, Yes, you’re pregnant! We did the bloodwork to check for everything and the pregnancy test came back that you’re indeed pregnant.
Me, no way…I’m, huh! Wow!

Good thing I was laying down when I got that news!

Go to the hospital due to dehydration and come out pregnant! Welcome to pregnancy life mommy part 2!

Psst, hey baby in there, we’re glad you’re there, but could you have let us know without trying to kill me?

My teacher tells on me

Hi hi hi! Morning morning morning! It’s time to wake up and get ready for Mickey Mouse and Daycare!

I’s writing today because I has a complaint. My teacher keeps telling on me. That’s no allowed! Doesn’t she knows that? waaaaaaaaawaaaaaaaa!

She’s told my mommy that I helps clean up in the classroom when it’s clean up time. Now my mommy and daddy will knows I can do it. How’s do I fix this? Heeeeeeeeeeelps!

Then, then, she tells that I no wanted to take a nap. I wanted to play play play, not takes anap. What fun is that?

Oh well, I’ll figures something out, but for now it’s time to go go go! I loves going to daycare even if my fun teacher tells on me!

Mommy mommy, time to change my diapers. I’s go poop again!

I’s a big boy now!

Shhhh, I’s suppose to be taking a nap, but I quickly took the puter from my mommy so that I’s can say hi hi hi!! Don’t tells her ok?

I am a big boy now! I’s 19 months or maybe almost 2 years old…hmm, I don’ts know. Ah well, whatever! I’m big and happy and drives mommy and daddy’scrazy, ha!

It’s been a long times since I was able to takes the puter so I don’t knows where’s to start to updates you, hmm!

Well, I goes to daycare now and I loves it. I get breakfast and lunch and snacks and learn songs and makes new friends and maes pictures, see!!

Jaydons art from Daycare as of 04_07_2018

Hmm, hopes I dids that right.

There’s more than those, but they no fit on the fridge thing in the kitchen! I loves going to this daycare. I wakes up at 4 in the morning and jumps all over mommy to makes her get up. I don’t know why they keeps telling me to go backs to sleep when I wakes up. Do you’s? Wells, I watches Mickey Mouse before I goes to daycare too. Oh, I loves dancing ttoo..want to see?

Aren’t I cute? If you like that then you’s loves this. I takes mommys boots and walks in them and does a great job too, don’t you thinks?

Uh oh’s, got to goes, night nights, mommy’s coming! Shhh, no tells her I types ok, ok? zzzzzz

Issues regarding renting from Mike Maynard and We Rent Marion

Warning! This will be a long post regarding renting from Mike Maynard and We Rent Marion!

January 2017

At the beginning of the yearI fell in love with the description of the house we are currently in. I asked lots of sighted people to check out the pictures and make sure that visually nothing was like horribly wrong and got the go ahead to let We Rent Marion know I was interested in the property. An appointment was made to come do a walk through of the house.

While doing a walk through with individuals from We Rent Marion and a sighted person that drove me to Marion a few issues were pointed out that needed to be fixed. For example, missing doors in rooms, nails poking out the the walls, needed fresh paint, broken windows and so on. At that time I was assured that those things would be fixed.

Move in day came which was about 2 weeks later and guess what, those things were not fixed and we discovered even more issues that because it was freezing cold during the walk through they were overlooked. However, they were immediately brought to the landlords attention. For example, a heavy window that when you open it, it falls out, there are little and big holes in the floor that are not safe for not only a blind couple, but definitely not for a little baby, there are vent covers that are hanging off the wall, there’s water damage to the floor in the bathroom that’s weakening the floor, meaning when you step on it, it sinks in and electrical outlets that needed to be checked.

Now in case you are wondering how did these things get missed during the walk through it was because they didn’t have the hit on during the walk through so the house was freezing cold, some of the holes are in areas that you don’t immediately notice, but with having a child that’s crawling around and having to assure their safety, you quickly find them.

Now, at this time around Febuary 2017 they had a maintenance guy also named Mike who was suppose to look into the issues. Well, guess what? For the hole month of Febuary he ignored our calls. We knew he was still around because his children went to the same day care as our son.

March 2017

Nothing has been done about any of the things that needed to be fixed in the house yet. Continued to try and reach Mike the maintenance guy and finally learned he no longer works for We Rent Marion. How nice of them to let their tenants know, right? So, give the landlord a call and find out what’s going on and when would the issues be looked at.

Hey, guess what? That phone call was never returned. We didn’t hear anything for all of March.

April 2017

Finally, we hear from We Rent Marion and they take down the list of things that need to be fixed and claims that someone will be in touch to see what can be done.

The person named Greg does come out, but he only fixes 2 things, the carpet on the stairs and a board in the upstairs livingroom that was coming apart and making the hole in the floor bigger.

Seriously, with that hole big list they only fix 2 things!

Greg tells us that We Rent Marion should be in touch in maybe a week about the rest of the items. So we wait! And we wait! Hey, and we wait some more!

May 2017

I give We Rent Marion a call and leave yet another messages about things in the house that need to be fixed and what is going on. I of course get no answer.

June 2017

I’ve finally had enough and send an email to We Rent Marion and this time I make sure that Mike Maynard gets a copy of my complaints. I list every single thing that needs to be fixed in the house and voice our concerns about the house being nsafe for a newly starting to walk baby that could seriously get hurt. I let them know that now if we don’t hear anything and things don’t start getting fixed that we would be within our rights to find another place to live since they are not taking care of the property as they should and are suppose to. I wrote that email at the end of May and didn’t hear anything for maybe 2 weeks.

Jane, Mike’s assistant calls and says Mike wants to meet with us ASAP so we set a time. But hey, guess what? You probably guessed it, he never showed up and didn’t even bother calling.

Another week goes by and I hear from Jane at We Rent Marion again claiming that someone would be by on a Monday to look at the house. So a time is set and we reschedule our plans to mae ourselves available. But…you guessed it, they don’t show up at the appointed time. But, they do show up hours after the fact, no appology, no nothing. Just, things ran behind. Seriously!

The person that came out was Mike Maynard the actual owner of all the We Rent Marion properties. He noted every single issue that needed to e looked at on his phone and even commented that some things should have been done before the house was rented again.

Like seriously, in my opinion maybe you should check on your properties more often instead of just believing what people tell you and then ignoring when your tenant files complaints.

One of the biggest things we pointed out to Mike Maynard while he was here was that one of the electrical outlets in the kitchen blew out and wasn’t working for a week or so. He goes over to the one that wasn’t working, notices the light is green on the breaker which I assume means it’s all good, plugs in the can opener and of course it works. His comment then was, “well, it works now so all is good there” and doesn’t note that in his file of things to look at.

So the end of June maintenance people come by and we schedule them to come by on a Friday morning to get started.

Ready for the routine?

Friday which is the last Friday of the month and there’s no maintenance worker here. We again get no phone call, no nothing

July 2017

Someone else decides to step in and try and give us assistance in reaching these people and getting through to them that they need to step up and fix their property. They were told that if nothing was done then they would be reported to the health department. Surprise surprise, we get a call from the maintenance guys who claimed it was a miscomunication and that they lost our phone number.

i’m sorry, but if you couldn’t find the number, then why didn’t you call your boss and get it from them? That was a horrible excuse for not doing your job.

So, it is scheduled yet again for them to come on Monday and we change our schedule yet again to accommidate. We should not have to keep doing this!

Oh look, they actually did show up then and stayed the hole day. They did fix a few things, like the nails in the porch, finally putting the doors in 2 of the rooms, putting screens in the windows. Well, some of the windows and cleared up the vegetation that seemed to be taking over the front and back porch. When they were done at the end of the day they told us they would be back the next day, which would have been on a Tuesday, July 11th. Things were finally looking pormising!

Ugh, got our hopes up too high. It’s now Wednesday July 19th and the maintenanc people are no where in sight. We have not received any phone calls attempting to reschedule or apologize for not showing up, nothing.

Remeber that electrical outlet in the kitchen that I said Mike Maynard ignored because it started working again. Well, today is Wednesday July 19, 2017 and we just had the fire department out here because that same outlet heated up and made the prongs of the appliances too hot to touch. The outlet stayed hot for almost a hour after we unplugged everything and turned off the breaker. The fire department told us not to use that outlet again and try and get our landlord out here. Once we told them who our landlord was, their response was not very encouraging.

Hearing, “your landlord isn’t Mike Maynard, is it” is not something you really want to hear from a fire department. It does not make you feel safe about whom you’re renting from. So then we were told to get the health department involved and try and get an inspector out here to check things out.

As a blind couple with a 11 month old son we do not feel safe in this house any longer and it’s way past time to start looking for safer accommidations before something really bad happens due to We Rent Marion and Mike Maynard ignoring our concerns.
