Tell All Tuesday Jan 4

  • Well- it's the second day of the new year- work week and I am home now with a sick Quinlin. I cannot win. I went to the daycare to pick her up- Owen was home yesterday sick from school and thankfully my dad was able to watch him- and there she was getting her temperature taken. I couldn't believe it. I kept thinking- if only I would have picked her up 10 minutes earlier, she wouldn't have been banned from school today (24 hours). But- as a good parent- I will willingly keep her home (what choice do I have) and not infect the other babies. So- I scheduled her with an appointment this morning with her pediatrician. Since Owen's sickness is strep and a sinus infection- better to make sure Quinlin doesn't have anything more serious than a fever. My thought is maybe it's teething? she's getting her 4 upper teeth all at once.
  • Sean now is feeling like he may be getting strep. Lovely. I gave him his doctor's office phone number to call right at 8am when they open to try and get an appointment. Thank goodness I had my oral surgery last week and still am on the antibiotics that they gave me for that. I'm thinking I am protected...it's a stronger antibiotic than what Owen was even placed on.
  • Thank goodness I have such an understanding boss. I am working from home today and do not need to take a sick day/vacation day. He knew yesterday when I was in that owen was sick and since he has children, he understands that when it hits one, it tends to hit the others.
  • I hate Black Monday in the NFL. Brutal industry. Makes me sad.
  • Why is it that I can have a house full of toys, but all Quinlin wants to pick up and play with is either a food particle that Owen has dropped or garbage?
  • I cannot wait until naptime today so I can watch the Bachelor from last night. I read the spoilers- courtesy of Reality Steve- so I know the outcome, but I still cannot wait to watch. I should probably get some cleaning done today too- we'll see how much I can accomplish with a sick baby girl- who though sick is extremely active and getting into everything. 
  • My other mission today is to find bedding for Owen's full size bed. I think it's finally time to pull the crib mattress off the floor and give him a real bed to sleep in. I'd like him to pick it out- maybe he'll get more excited about it- though I'm almost afraid to see what he would pick. I think Sean wants to do a sports theme since he is very into sports. I dont want it to look cheesy though. Decisions, decisions....

  1. Good luck finding bedding...shopping can be fun but when you've got something specific in mind, it can be tough!

    Hope everyone feels better soon!
