It's Thursday

Life is good. The boys and I are busy entertaining each other as usual. Maybe not so much today-the little boys are sick. They both went to bed last night with fevers. Colton slept with me. Let me just say, I did not sleep much. And I have no idea how he did. The boy coughed and coughed and coughed. ALL NIGHT LONG, every 15 minutes. Christian is having allergy issues now and his skin is jacked up with eczema, just like big brother Colton. This morning he was still pretty crabby and his eyes were all red and puffy. So I took him to the doctor. Before anyone knocks my mothering, I wanted to go ahead and take them both in, but the doctor was full and they squeezed me in. I am glad we went. Baby Christian has an ear infection. Nasty antibiotics have been started, so here is hoping for a happier Friday. And when I say my kids are sick, don't think the worst. No one would ever know! They are just slightly less happy than their normal super happy selves!!

This week has been teacher appreciation week at school. At Connor's elementary school, the PTA staff has had a box set up by the main entrance. They asked the students to write letters to their teachers and drop in the "mail box". Daily deliveries have been made. So Connor has written several letters to his teacher and teacher's assistant. He is writing it himself. I am spelling the teachers' names. Other than that, it's all him. So thank you is "thanc u" and love is "luv". It's sort of legible. But these ladies teach 4 year olds, they should be used to it right? Today he painted flower pots and planted flowers for them. 


I had my dentist appointment on Monday...in Dallas. So I went down on Sunday morning. ALONE!!!! That's right, a day and a half off of work. A break from the kids. A night alone in the hotel. Shopping, lunch, dinner, drinks, clean teeth...it was heaven. I came back feeling very rejuvenated. Sometimes we all need a break.

Isn't it funny? I once heard someone say that they would schedule a pap smear once a month for the two hour break from kids. Awesome.
