    I have a wedding in 41/2 maybe 5 weeks (oct 10). I am sooo stressed out about that because even thought the budget is only 2500 we still have things to pay for and not sure if the money is gonna come through in time. On top of looking for a job and getting turned down for the one I really wanted.
    Tonight I found some of my moms vitamins in my daughters bed!!!! We finally got out of her she had snuck in my moms (mom is disabled and has to live with somone) and went throught her meds, ate all her cough drops and took and hid other meds in her room (vitamins). I feel like such a bad mom right now!!!! She is 6 and knows better! We never thought that she would climb up to the top of the closet and go snoopin throught grandmas medications!!!!
    Now we are thinking of putting locks on both my bedroom and my mothers.
    I'm sorry I'm rambling. Thanks for listening.

    I feel for you as a mom and married woman. As for your wedding it is always stressful to plan but it will be wonderful the day of. AS far as your daughter you might want to lock up all meds as you how quickly they can get into somthing that can really harm them. Take a bath and relax. [​IMG]

    Weddings are always stressful for the most part.Just do the best you can,double check your lists and see if there is anything you can do for less money or even eliminate.The day is not about the extra's or going in debt.The day is for you 2 to celebrate your love with family, friends and start your new life as 1..Put all the worries in a box,the day will be beautiful. As for your little girl,remember even when our kids are smart and know better they still give in to curiuosity;they are kids.Double stress to her how important it is when she wants to see something or know something to ALWAYS come to mama first...Double stress the dangers and how sick she can get when into things that arent for kids.I most definitely would put locks on doors or get a locked box(abt $40.00 at walmart) to keep those things under lock and key.You can only be in 1 place at a time and taking care of a sick parent is ALOT of work and takes alot of time.Kids are kids and they move like lightening..It would be worth it for safety and sanity to lock up anything n everything that could be dangerous.Friends who didnt have kids use to think I was crazy because I locked up meds,cleaners etc..Once they had kids they understood.I could never hide or put things up high,my boys were better than monkeys the way they could climb and get into things.Even climbing out of the crib before 10 mos old!!!Prayers for you are flowing.

    My dear, when I was two I climbed to the top cupboard and ate a whole bottle of Flinstone vitamins. 46 years later I am here and just fine and my mom was not a bad mom because I was curious.

    Weddings are stressful. Kick back and enjoy it, even if everything doesn't get paid for in time. Hot dogs and burgers still fill a belly, and music always makes people dance.

    Been there done that with my son when he was a toddler! I know your panic... he ate a full packet of Chewy vits which I had in a cupboard... I learnt my lesson and so did he... he was fine... my Dr thought I had completely lost the plot!..... another time (and it might be worth bearing this in mind) he drank washing up liquid! ... frothy mouthed, there was me in another panic call to the Dr. You can't wactn children 24/7 but even t this day (and my boy is now 13) I never leave any of my meds hanging around...... lesson learnt... [​IMG]... relax and enjoy the run up to your special day.....may you alwasy be blessed with sunshine in your heart and home...... now go lock up that medicine cabinet.

    It would be cheap to do an AWESOME wedding that day, but I won't go into the details if you can't change the date.....
