Michelle...yes, $320, don't spend it all in one place. I know St Louis is a small midwestern city but we have felt the price increases.

Joy, glad to hear your sister is doing better. I had a friend that had that and (this is gross) but if she was craving something she would chew it up to taste it and then spit it out. If she ate bad stuff or too much she would be sick!

Amy, I'm hungry so I have lots of suggestions..haha.. shrimp scampi with some chardonnay. fajitas with margs, or some white pasta, salad, good bread w/ olive oil dipping with a good red wine....
And DH has plans tonight so I think I'm having frozen pizza...thrills!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!!

Kim-That had to have been a tough call to take! Hope it turned out ok!
Eileen- Yeah my vida loca! HAHAHA!!! That pretty much sums it up doesn't it?! I read your post to Joy about her DH being a corrections officer, that's what you do right? I actually went online yesterday and started looking into that after you mentioned it..I've always wanted to be either in the criminal justice field or nursing field.I just keep waivering on which I want to do...Could you tell me more about what you do?WHat about a physical fitness test?I know that each state is different but the more details you give me the more it'll help me make a decision...

Elise- I love my crockpot!! Took me a few years before I figured out how to use it well...LOL... We should trade recipes! I made a pot roast in it the other day that was sooooo yummy and tender!!! Oooh and a chicken tortilla soup(healthy and yummy!) and really yummy pulled pork!! I think I'm hungry, HA HA HA!!

Amy- Thanks! I'm not sure where the outfit came from since DH's aunt gave it to him for Xmas, but it is my favorite outfit of his...He has slippers to that she got to go with it that look like little polar bear feet.So darn cute!Poor Nate and his gas! Is he feeling better today?

Joy- Glad to hear that your sister is doing better! Hopefully she is able to get home soon. Be careful with waste management if your DH gets a job there. I interviewed with them and was given a job offer and ended up getting a better offer from the company I was with(turned out to be a bad move because i didn't get along with my boss-not my fault though) and then 3 months later the closed that position and laid off 3 other women doing the same job and my cousin as well...Hope he finds something soon.Has he checked with UPS?Not necessarily as a driver or at Fed Ex? They're less strict about hiring drivers there...

Diana- Sorry your DH has plans tonight! Come out and have dinner with us Smile

If I left anyone out I apologize..Anyone seen Jessi?She's not been on lately...

AFM: I've got a wicked headache and a sleeping baby on my lap so I don't want to move to go get anything for it.Hahaha...I know he should be in his bed and that's totally my fault. DS#2 still sounds terrible but his cough is getting better...He's still acting ok otherwise.In fact yesterday was one of those days where I wish I had a giant hamster wheel in the basement so that they could go and just run and burn off their energy because they were trying to "battle" every 3 seconds!!! They were in the corner soo many times I lost track!And of course I had a friend over for dinner and DH fell asleep while she cut their hair so I had to put Lucas in his room to just hang out in his bed so I could help her.Then she got her van stuck in a snowbank on the side of my driveway...That was actually the fun part of the evening, pushing her car out with my SUV. Oh and to top off my day,one of the dogs has diarrhea and I slid through it in the kitchen at 2am when I got up for a drink.YUCK!!!!

TGIF!!!!!

Elise - Thanks for the sleeping vibes....they didn't work but that's ok! LOL Glad you like your new crock pot...I've got tons and tons of recipes that are really good! I use mine about twice a week. I don't know what I'd do without it!

Kim - I can imagine how your heart sinks when you get a kid call. Doesn't it just piss you off that this poor kid is in need of HELP and on the other line you've got two grown adults who can't stop fighting? I've never understood domestic violence.

Joy - I'm glad your sister is doing better. I hope she gets to go home soon. Okay having to have the OTR experience DOES bite....I hope he finds something soon!

Amy - I just wanna agree with you on the milacon thing. I give Brenden milacon mixed with his zantac (the zantac tastes so yucky) 3 times per day. Well for one lousy day I ran out of the milacon and I didn't realize what a difference it made for him! I thought I was just making his zantac bearable! I have lots of ideas for dinner with your hubby...I'm always full of ideas. What kind of food does he like? I made a seafood ravioli dish the other day that was out of this world!

Diana - I just can't get over the $320 a week. Sometimes I wonder how our government expects us to live with the kind of benefits they give us. I remember my grandparents received $900 a month in social security benefits. My grandpa didn't have a retirement check so they were expected to live off of that $900 a month. They would go without their medications so they could buy food....it was INSANE!

Shannon - LMFAO! Dear Gawd! You slipped in dog diarrhea??? I can just picture that in my head! LOLOLOLOL I'm sure you were saying a few choice words.... *crying*

AFM - the waking up only once per night lasted one night. However, last night was terribly bad. He went down at 7:30 and didn't get up until 1:45 and drank a bottle so quickly I barely had time to get comfy in the rocking chair. Then he got up again at 4. I tried to pat him back to sleep but he started eating his hands like he was starving so I gave him another bottle. He drank about 2oz and was passed out cold. I could have dropped him like a bomb in his bed and he wouldn't have moved! He didn't get up until 7am so I am happy with getting up twice, it's the 7 or 8 times that get old real quick. On Friday's I make french toast for Breakfast.....it's Dawson's favorite. Well, this morning as Brenden was eating his pears he caught sight of Dawson eating the french toast and started SCREAMING! He spit everything out of his mouth and just sat there SCREAMING with his mouth wide open. I was so caught off gaurd. I wasn't sure what to do....I mean he'll only be 4months old tomorrow. I ended up putting some syrup on my finger and letting him taste it. He finally shut up and ate his pears. I guess he just had to have what bubby was having! A friend and I were suppose to go shopping today but she cancelled at the last minute. So since I already straightened my hair and got the baby ready we went anyway! We had such a good afternoon! Brenden was all smiles and just laughing at everyone! People always comment how big he is in his carset (you know it sits on the stroller) and then their eyes get really big when I tell them how old he is. Tomorrow we are going to ahve to get another car seat. I can't pull the strap out any more on the one he has. His head is at the top and his feet hang off the bottom. I don't know how I got this giant kid....
TGIF! Have a good weekend ladies!

E-Gad.. I don't know where the H*ll I've been, but I've been reading and not posting I guess.

I sure wish everyone would get well and find jobs!! What a crazy place we live in. I just read so much that I can't even remember what I was going to say to everyone. ugh..

Things have been alright here. Dominic when through the same crazy sleep thing that MichelleL was talking about. I think I really need to start giving him cereal on a regular basis. I can't keep up at all with his demand anymore and am supplimenting between 2 and 3 bottles a day. It makes me feel kind of bad, but at least I did better than last time.

So my major breakthough has actually been with SO. I think he finally understood that I was D.O.N.E. living the way we were.. I physically and mentally just can not fight all the time. It's so unhealthy. So we've really been trying to find time for each other and it's been going pretty well. We've been watching a lot of movies and he's really been helping around the house more than usual. We even got to go on a Date! GASP! We went to a really nice restaurant and then to play some pool. It was so much fun. We haven't done anything like that in a loooong time. So I feel for your post on the Vent thread Shannon.. I sure hope you get to go out.

Elieen and Amy - I hope all goes well with the Gym for you. I signed up and went for a little while, but when X-mas came I though.. oh I'll just go back next week.. ooops I haven't been back yet. I really want to lose weight. I just really lack the motivation.

Amy - I too am finding it harder and harder to come to work. I miss my little man a lot and my comute it so far. I'm just wiped when I get home. So I feel ya!

Joy - I'm so glad your sister is doing better. What a scary ordeal. Hopefully in a year or two when she's all slim, she'll think it was all worth it.

Kim- Loved the sledding pictures. And how scary to get those kid calls. You must have nerves of steel.. I'd probably start crying and loose my cool. LOL

To All: I'm going to start a recipie thread for Crock Pot recipies and others. I have a Crock Pot but I never use it. I guess like someone else said I need to mess with it and get it figured out. It would be sooo nice to have something ready and waiting for me when I got home..haha

Hope that covers most of it.. sorry for being MIA..

OH.. I also for got to tell you all that Tatzeanna got her first girly battle wound... She grabbed my curling iron and stuck it right on her forehead.. AHK! Now she has this super ugly scabby thing all over. I've been putting a ton of cream on it in hopes that it won't scar. We'll see..

I dont have time to read posts right now so I am just going to post my latest news and get back to work before they catch me here...

Well i got a call from daycare. Nate was screaming his head off again with gas today. So it was lunch time and I went and bought a bottle of milacon and took it up to the school. He did have milacon in all of his bottles so this shouldnt have been a problem. When I got there they had just gotten him to go to sleep so I didnt wake him up even though I wanted to hold him so bad.
I called my pediatrician and took him in at 2:10. Well it turns out my baby has double ear infections and gastroenteritis. Joy! So I took his Rx to wallgreens and sat there for 45 minutes getting it filled. Then DH met me at wallgreens (just as the Rx was ready) and he took him home and I came back to work.
DH just called and asked what temperature we are to take him to the hospital for. So I told him doc said 100.5 and above. Well his is at 100.2 right now. Grrr! So He is giving him his meds and some tylenol and we are going to wait 20 min and hope it comes down. That is my current update. I have a sick little booger on my hands! Poor kiddo!

oh Amy!!! So sorry little Nate is sick! Ear infections hurt worse when laying down...you might wanna let him sleep in his bouncy or car seat for a couple of nights. Also, the vicks baby rub will help if you put it around his ear....like under the lobe and around the back. Poor kid! I hope ya'll don't end up at the hospital. Are you sure it was 100.5 to take him and not 105?

MichelleL-Infants under 3 months that run a fever of 100.6 or higher need to be seen because they can become septic very easily(according my mom who's an ER Nurse of 15 years).In babies above that its usually give tylenol and watch and wait but also dependent on their general appearance and disposition. KWIM?

Amy- Aww poor Nate!! Give him hugs and kiss for me! It's not easy having sick LO's.Take care of you and DH too because it will wear you guys out taking care of a sick LO. Poor little man! I hope he feels better soon!!!

Michelle- Yup I got to go out.Was so nice!!Food was yummy and I ate WAY too much but it was worth it!! It is nice to get out with our SO's once in awhile and just be the people we were before the kiddos came along!

AFM- Heading to bed for a hopefully quiet night! Have a good weekend ladies!

sorry i haven't been posting, girls. I've got a terribly fussy little man on my hands. Well, not REALLY bad, but... very annoying. I'm pretty sure he's teething. He's being a real brat lately and will cry endlessly when we give him a bottle. I try to give him baby Orajel or Tylenol first. He cries too hard for me to give him teething tablets. He gasps a lot, so I don't give them to him b/c i am scared he will choke... they don't actually dissolve THAT quickly. KWIM?

I got a weird mucussy thing last week which I am over now, but now DH is always tired and he usually stays up with the baby. So now I stay up with him, since I can't get to sleep for the friggin life of me. But then I don't get enough sleep during the ngiht to really watch him during the day. And joey cat naps instead of taking long naps. And even when he does take long naps, I lay in bed to take a nap but have my ears in supersonic hearing mode in case he wakes up. I always have that fear that I'll be sleeping REALLY heavy and not hear him cry til he is screaming at the top of his lungs(which has actually happened b4). So I'm in one of those, "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situations. DH is sick so he wants rest, but i have a sleeping problem so if I don't even attempt sleep, I don't have enough energy for the next day. I am half tempted to call someone to take joey for the night this weekend so we can have a peaceful night's sleep. Well he's finally asleep(took long enough), so i will bid u all adieu... hope to talk to you all again soon. It's kinda hard tho, now that he's sleeping in his crib... the computer is in his room so it makes it kinda hard to do anything on the computer.

Holy crap Michelle, i don't think a baby could handle 105! I had a fever of 104.5 once and i was almost hallucinating!

wow there was alot of posts since my last post... alike with a few other ladies I cannot remember all what I read about Except some poor babies who are sicky and cranky. Not sure who is what but I hope it all gets better soon. Jeremiah has not really been sick except like shortly after he was born he had some runny nose then stuffy nose other than that I have been blessed thus far. I am still sleeping on an erratic schedule because Jeremiah has a weird sleeping schedule but I guess its not too bad. I think he may be attempting teething soon because he does the whole chewing the fist thing and I have noticed his cheeks appear to be rosy alot kinda like when they are teething.
My sister was released from the hospital today. I only was able to talk to her a few minutes and she had to get off the phone I guess she ended up having some people coming over while we were on the phone. But other than sounding really worn out she sounded good. Other than that not too much is new really..

100.5 indicates an actual fever. I don't remember the age that they tell you not to bring your child to the ER until there fever is above 104 or 105. Children can get really high fevers that would incinerate an adult. The hospital can do nothing more than you can do at home....strip the clothes, cool room, cool baths, fluids for hydration, tylenol/motrin combo.... I'm sure it's once they are a toddler now that I think about it. Dawson's been there and it sucks.

Bekah - you can dissolve the teething tablets in water to give them to Joey!

Just to join in on the debate, I was under the understanding and have it written from my pediatrician to not even call them unless it is over 101 degrees...and not to give tylenol until it reaches that also as an infants temp can vary and is considered normal for any range between 97.5 and 100.5. And yes children can handle much higher temps than kids can...high temps in adults is much more dangerous than high temps in kids...per my ped, my Dr and all the EMT's I work with.

Amy- I am so sorry Nate is sick...hopefully your DH will feel less guilty about forgetting about the milicon now as his crankyness was probably do to the ear infections and his belly irritation.

AFM- I am just so freaking excited because McKenna went poop on the potty all by herself!!! She has been going pee in it for the last month with out much prompting but still felt more comfortable pooping in her pull up, I wasn't pushing the issue yet with her either...but today she went all on her own!!! (she got a lolipop as a reward)

yeah mckenna!!! and yeah for kim hopefuly not too many more poopy pull ups!...lol as for me my son is going about 1-2 tiems a day number 1 hasn't thoguht about number two yet. I feel bad he is like the only kid at sunday school who isn't potty trained he jsut turned three and it just seems like everyone around me is like "you don't have him trained yet? what kind of a mother are you?" so feeling kind of bummed on that one but ohwell they can stuff it.

Shannon-corrections officers usually just need a high school diploma and to pass like a can you read and write english test, sometimes a physical agility test like an obstacle course. after that generally you are in and they usualy work with you if you are a female becasue they need htose like really bad. I basiclly manage a unit or a couple depending on teh layout of the building. the ration of inmate to officer is 1officer to 48 inmates. you keep a running log book of comings adn goings, last night i worked the psychiatric unit and earned my money i had at any given time during my shift no less then 4 screaming crazy people. it wears on ya after a while let me tell ya, i had one yell at me and run at me so i shut the door adn she slammed into teh door...lol scared the pants off of me almost. psychiatric is teh wrost but they can be fun too last ngiht was rough thoguh. the main thing is you gotta talk to these people with respect regardless fo the crime and stuff. you learn how to talk to people seriously 90% of the job is talking to peple, maybe 5 is really physically restrainning people adn the other 5% is writting a report. i love it for the most part. I ahve some horror stories but 9 out of 10 times it is uneventful. i equate it to managing children very similar if they are bad you send them to lockdown or timeout...lol you make sure the rules are followed and make sure you have al the living breathign bodies you are supposed to. i highly reccomend it especially in this economy they are alwasy hurting for officers it has a high turnover rate becasue people don't learn how to leave work at work. but if you can get past that or even if you need somethign for the mean time it si great. not to mention you can do that job anywhere there is criminals everywhere so you can move to any city or place in the country and you will ahve a job. definately won't ever get laid off and they always come with medical benefits. i woudl recoomend weatchign that show jail on teh true tv channel and watching lock up on msnbc those shows show real stuff and aren't all foofy. the show jail is like cops but with teh jail my jail did like 6 episodes for them but i missed all of them so i am not in any. if you want to learn more i woudl also call your local sheriff's department or county government and ask about it.

AFM no sleep today since hubby worked overtime until just now and birthday party at 4:30 adn then work adn then tomorrow is amarathon i go from work to church until 2pm so no sleep tomorrow either this is going to suck. excuse my language but it is...lol God bless the person who created energy drinks...lol and hubby wonders why i sleep so much on my day off on monday?

Hello Ladies. Sorry I haven't posted in forever. I have been so busy with work that I can't find time for anything. The temps here got down to 5 degrees, so the pipes in the ceilings are work burst and we had to evacuate the whole place. So I have to take a crew up to another town like an hour away to work at another building our company owns. At least I get to drive the company van! lol.

As for my Miss Chloe she is 4months old. She just had shots on thrusday and feels horrible. She ran a temp all day yesterday and still feels crabby today. She slept for 10hours last night. I guess it was just all catching up to her. She is teething also, so that doesn't help. She is miserable. Crying or Very sad She is eating baby food, loving bananas! She's not to keen on cereal expect when it's in her bottle. She loves standing up and playing in her walker. Also loves chewing on anything and everything!!! She loves to talk all the time! She is full of energy that's for sure. At her check up on thrusday she only weighed 12lbs, I guess she is going to be a runt. My son was huge by this time. I guess she's taking after my skinny dh.

Also, I found out about two weeks back that number 3 is on the way. I am still in shock! I mean I knew it could happen because we weren't on anything, but still in shock. I ovulated on Christmas, so I guess it's our Christmas baby. I am due Sept 18, a little over a week before Chloe's first birthday. I am so freaked out about having babies so close together. There is an eight year difference between my son and baby girl!!! I feel like Britney Spears-she had two a year apart in sept. Let's hope i dont go crazy and shave my head!!!! I did dream last night i was pregnant with twins and woke up in a panic this morning!! The wonderful morning sickness is back in full force pale ... lord i can't believe i am doing this again sooooooo soon! This will more than likely be our LAST!!!!

That's all from this end. Hope all of ya'll are well. I Am going to try and post a pic of Chloe in her walker. Sorry if it posts so big, I'm in a hurry!!

Joy - yeah that your sister is home! Smile

Jessica - OMG!! You are much braver than I! My 3 kids are 4 years apart and it's driving me insane!!

Bekah - glad you're feeling better

Kim - Yeah for McKenna!!

Amy - poor Nate!! Sad Hopefully he'll start to feel better soon!

Shannon - glad you got to have your dinner...and enjoyed it!! Smile

AFM: I think Rayna finally got it!! We were out for most the day today and she was in underwear and DRY!!!!!!!! She's been doing pretty well about pooping in the potty and being dry in underwear at home, so we took like 5 changes of pants and underwear with us and didn't need to use any of them!!! When we got home, she started to pee in her underwear but finished in the potty before her pants were wet. We gave her lots of praise and I told her that she was going to get to wear underwear to school now because she's such a big girl! And we didn't constantly ask her if she had to go either! I think she's got it!!! I figure I'll have to buy her some more pants because I know I'm going to have to leave a bunch at school for her just in case, but thank goodness!!! I'm not even dealing with nighttime right now - don't care - she can wear goodnights all night...i care about the daytime most of all!!

Logan seems to be feeling better, thankfully. I know he's teething because you can see 2 little white teeth below his bottom gums, so I'm sure the slits won't be far behind!

We were at BJs today and bought some baby food because I know he'll be starting it after his DA on monday. Figured I might as well buy it since 1) we were there and 2) there were coupons for it! Smile

Friday is V-day for DH. So next weekend he'll be milking it up and using it as an excuse to sit around and watch tv and moan and groan. But, I figure I'll give him his day and then tell him to quit his moaning. Smile

Ok - kids are in bed so time to get stuff put away and spend time with the hubby!

grrr glad I copied what I wrote before trying to post it.. darn thing logged me out again must be because I take too long posting sometimes and if on idle to long it signs you out huh?

Alright today is a bit better for some personals Not as many posting to remember lol But I am not complaining I love seeing this board with lots of new things being posted. I love to come here and read em but not always as easy to post about and respond to them all. But here goes

Kim- Yah for McKenna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What a good girl..

Eileen-I totally know the feeling of others passing judgements about my parenting skills. The nerve of some people!! I mean most of them had their chance to raise their kids they should butt out.. Mind you during the time I was trying to potty train Elijah and then most recently Faith I had someone give me their words of wisdom telling me that I should start spanking my kids everytime they wet or messed in a diaper or pull up and that eventually they would learn not to do it. Which I totally disagree with and didn't listen to. I say its a power struggle and when they are willing and ready to make the change to using the potty they will do so and not until then. I mean yeah we are to instruct them about it and even give reminders that they are getting too big for diapers etc but not hurt them physically or even verbally about it if they don't. I mean I am all for giving a spank when needed but that doesn't meet my qualifications for spanking. Sorry to go off on a rant on this but wanted you to know you are not alone being judged as a bad parent over something like that I ve been there too.
Jessica- Hey nice to hear from ya!! Wink Congrats on #3. Look at it this way if Chloe outgrows any diapers too fast you can use it for this baby. And even more so of a bonus if its a girl when Chloe outgrows the clothes baby will be able to wear em. No need for shopping for baby things all over again.. Good luck though with the morning sickness(or all day it was in my case) I got a walker just like the one you have for Chloe the only difference is mine is a different deat cover pattern and mine don't have the rear spoiler. I love how these kind adjust though don't have to worry about a spring giving out and it collapsing while baby is inside it.

Elise- Yay Rayna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How awesome! Go figure we start a new year and all our girls(Kim-McKenna You- Rayna I- Faith) start being big girls using the potty like we have been wanting... WooooHooooo Girl power!! :-P

Jessi- congrats and glad to see that you made it over here!!!! Mine are two years apart and I thought I was crazy...but you manage.

Elise- I saw all those wonderful coupons for BJ's...I think we may be going in the next week...I just have to double check the experation dates so I don't miss them. Most babyfood doesn't expire for quite a while so I am going to stock up on it too.

Kim - That first poop is so exciting and gross all at the same time! Congrats to McKenna!!

Eileen - I seriously respect the way you describe your job. Especially the part about respecting the inmates no matter what their crime. You never know the circumstance that resulted in their sentence. Granted, some deserve to be hung out to dry but others might have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whatever the case, knowing you are simply doing your job and judging anyone has to make you feel good.

Jessica - Good to see you! Congrats on #3!!! You'll do great....mothers always find a way! ;-)

Elise - Yah for staying dry! Thumbs up to Rayna!! And congrats on getting DH to meet Vday....I can't get my hubby to budge on that one.

Joy - so glad you are not letting others tell you how to take care of your own kids! I mean everyone has advice, but it's the people that get mad when you don't do exactly what they say that hack me off! I can't imagine spanking my kid because they didn't poop/pee in the potty! I agree that sometimes its a power struggle but they also might not fully understand the connection with the "urge" and the potty. I'd hate to spank my kiddo because they didn't understand something.

Amy - How is Nate doing?? I hope he is feeling better and you were able to get his fever down without going to the hospital. I've been thinking about ya' all weekend.

AFM - Today is already a booger of a day. I had just washed all 11 of Brenden's bottles and had them drying on the counter (Dr Brown's bottle have 6 pieces each) when I dropped a glass measuring cup out of the cupboard and it broke all over the freshly cleaned bottles. Man was that a mess to clean up! Little bits of glass were everywhere! GRRRRRR! I had decided I was going to make homemade buttermilk pancakes since I had some buttermilk that needed using. I had never made them from scratch before and while it wasn't complicated it took longer than just making the Hungry Jack that you add water to. Also, that's how I broke the measuring cup....I needed it for the buttermilk when I dropped it. Anyway, they didn't taste much different the my regular just add water to pancakes. So all of that for pretty much nothing!!! On a better note Brenden went down at 7:30 without incident last night and didn't wake until 1:45 for a bottle. He went right back down until 6am and drank a 5 oz bottle in like 5 minutes then back to bed until 8:30! I GOT TO SLEEP IN! :-)))))))) Well, I'm off to finish laundry. I hope ya'll have a really good Sunday!

Kim - some of ours expired on 1/28 others were good until 2/14, so we got most of the stuff yesterday.

AFM: Logan had a pretty decent night last night -- he was so tired he was ready for bed at 7 and slept until about 1:30am. Not too bad! Would have been better if DH and I hadn't stayed up until 12:30am catching up on all the shows we tivo. Oh well - c'est le vie!

Sorry no personals today:This is a Lucas post...

Well DS#2 is sounding better and better every day and Id hoped and prayed that Luc wouldnt get sick too...Friday he was grumpy and on the way homr from running errands he screamed in the car the whole way...He's never done that before!!Yesterday he started coughing but no fever but MISERABLE!!!! I couldnt put him down at all and he barely slept and was grumpy about eating too. Today he's running 101.2 and coughing and a bit wheezy...So I think we're headed to the emergency room.Gave him Tylenol at 7:30am and the lowest its gotten is 100.6...A bit happier since he slept last night but wanted to eat ALL night long...Will keep you guys posted...I'm gonna bet pneumonia.

MichelleL-Thanks Michelle. I feel like its something I'm doing or maybe not doing thats making them sick...I know its not but its so frustrating that onegets it and just as that one gets it, the other does, and so on...

AFM: Lucas's fever dropped with Tylenol but he's stil grumpy...So we're holding off on the ER trip(never know what illness will be brought back from there Laughing )unless the fever comes back...Today was DS's birthday party with DH's family and our friends.Lucas did ok and only tolerated people for about 5 minutes before the lip would start to quiver and the water works started.But it was fun anyway...My MIL wants to take DS#! and DS#2 during most of winter break!!!!!!!!! WOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!! DH will drop them off on Valentines Day morning(mIL lives about 1.5 hours away)and she will bring them back either Wednesday or Thursday...I'm so excited!!! I need some quiet time!!!Hopefully everyone is healthy so girls keep your fingers crossed!!!gotta run!
