My sweet little girl is teething. Harshly. I held her pretty much all day. She puts her sweet little hand up to her mouth and looks at me with her big eyes and just cries and drools. Poor thing. Even WITH baby tylenol she is having a tough go of it.
Aiden has another ear infection. He got it the day after he went swimming so I'm not sure if he got a bunch of pool water in his ear or something. Can that give you an ear infection? I have no idea. My mom graciously took him to the doctor last night because Doug was working and Olivia is miserable. They had to wait well over an hour to see the doctor but once they saw her she sent Aiden home with meds. He is doing quite a bit better as of bed time tonight. He was really hurting so I am relieved it isn't as bad now.
I got lots of ear infections as a kid so I suppose it is probably just genetic. But man! As if my son doesn't have enough to deal with being asthmatic and having sensory issues! He just can't catch a break and stay well for longer than a couple weeks at a time it seems.
I sure didn't get a whole lot of cleaning done today. Mostly I just held Olivia. On the up side I got to take a nap with her (since she wouldn't sleep unless I was holding her). Doug took the boys outside for awhile. I am so glad it is warming up!
Our crazy cat has a death wish I think. Seriously. He actually runs out in front of cars on a really regular basis. Not only does he run out in front of them, he waits until they are close and THEN runs in front of them. He also likes to wait behind them as they back up. Crazy feline.
We did MASSIVE grocery shopping yesterday since we got paid and I must tell you it feels lovely to have a stocked fridge! God is extremely gracious to us.
When I was out of milk I kept thinking of all the people out there who are out of milk more often than not. Or how about all those sweet babies slowly starving to death in various countries around our world? Sad. God has blessed me so very much. I am so thankful.
I found it hard to tell my sons that we didn't have any milk to give them when they asked ... imagine having to watch your baby starve to death?
Nope. I have absolutely no reason to complain.
