Thanks ladies, I really appreciated everyone's sympathy on that last post, its been a crazy month, but November is looking better, we're all healthy right now so I'm hoping for the best.
Things have been crazy here at our house the last few days, so I haven't been able to blog. I am still pretty swamped so this just a quick note, since this is one of those things I don't want to forget...
Bugaboo has been talking for quite awhile now, but its just been in the last few weeks that he has switched from mimicry (sp?) to actually using those words to comunicate and tell me what he needs/wants. Its wonderful, I never knew how useful the words milk, juice, cheese, up, down, more, all done, and poop are. Funny... the things that parenting teaches you to appreciate.
Ok, in the last month, Bugaboo and I have been to the doctor's office five times, and also spent about six hours in the emergency room one lovely morning. Collectively we have had four ear infections, a sinus infection, one enduring case of pneumonia, and now the new member to our not so exclusive ailment club one splotchy case of Roseola. Roseola! I had to look it up on the internet, because I didn't know what it was. Basically it is a virus (translation: when red spots break out all over your child who has had a fever for three days, you freak out rush him to the doctor, on the verge of tears only to have the doctor tell you to take your incredibly irritable toddler home and give him tylenol because there's nothing they can do for a virus except collect your $20 co-pay on your way out of the office).
Seriously! winter is just getting started and we are already having serious health issues, I am scared for the rest of the season...I guess we better go get our flu shots and stock up on vitamin c, does anyone else having any suggestions?
I always wanted to be a writer, don't laugh its true, but being mommy seems to have given me a permanent case of writer's block. So welcome to the happy little place where the dream and reality coexist. Join me for writings on the kids (Mason 7.5 yrs and Max 4 yrs) and the Hubby (Shane) and my own musings on life in general.
