For rent

We recently found out that when Aaron leaves for training, I won't be able to go with him. I knew that I wouldn't get to see him very much, but I at least thought that they would allow us housing. Apparently not.
Our lease at our current apartment is up in July & I won't be able to stay here longer because they require tenants to sign a 12 month lease. I know his training won't last that long, so I'm not going to even bother.
Not to mention my job is a whole hour away, so I might as well just move back 'home' temporarily, right?
This is where it gets sticky.
As of right now, on the days that I work, my grandmother keeps Adelei for me, & then we spend the night so I won't have to commute an hour each way. Which was fine when I was only working 3 days a week. But now that I'm working 5 days a week & every other's getting a little stressful. I think she still sees me as a child even though I am an adult with my own child. I love her & value her opinion, but I don't think I can emotionally handle staying there FULL time & not having an escape.
As of now, I will continue doing it this way because I refuse to pay rent on two apartments. But once our lease ends in Troy & Aaron leaves for training, I was thinking about getting an apartment closer to my job & to my grandmother.
Part of me is scared to even mention this to her because I don't want to upset her.
I need help! I need advice! Have any of you been in a similar situation?
What would you do if you were in my shoes?

New Food

Last night Adelei tried green beans for the first time.
Other than not understanding the spoon, she really liked them!

Please tell me it gets easier [the transition from bottle to spoon]!

Things are getting weird

I know that kids toys are supposed to be silly, and sometimes they don't make a lot of sense, but this thing
I saw a commercial for this while watching Adventure Time today, and all I could do was sit there with my mouth open wide wonder if I had just seen a faux commercial.
But after seeing it for the third time in less than an hour, I realized that it was a real toy. Or game. Whatever.
All I know is, I would never spend money on a toy for my kid where the whole purpose is to watch it poop.
We have a real dog for that.
