Poor, poor, pitiful me...shoot me now.

I have the flu.

Or some ridiculous stomach bug that thinks it's the flu.

Or is so impressed by it's bigger, more annoying, brother that it feels the need to do everything that the other does.

Remember that whole, "I can do anything you can do better, I can do anything better than you. No you can't. Yes I can. No you can't. Yes, I can; Yes, I can; Yes, I can!!"


You know I'm sick if I'm quoting obscure songs.

In other news, my almost-11 month old is WALKING!! Yep. He figured out how to stand up all by himself without any support yesterday. And withina couple of hours Dean and I had him walking (holding onto our hands, of course). Considering he figured out how to stand all by himself, and then walk within a couple of hours apart, I'm in trouble. lol. It won't be long now!

Crashes and such

So, I spent part of the day at Memorial Hermann Hospital since my mom totaled her car by spinning across 4 lanes of traffic and slamming into a Beamer and a concrete abuttment.

I attempted to blog from my phone while I was there, but if you see below, apparently those didn't come across the way I INTENDED them all. Ahem.

Anyways, she's ok. She hit her head pretty hard, but if she has a concussion, the doctors said it is slight since her pupils are equal and reactive. No indentions or swelling on her head either. But she does have a sprained neck and a sprained back, so she's not entirely happy right now.

Anytime someone has a head injury, or even a possible head injury, doctors do not give them narcotics for pain, since it can mask neurological symptoms of a worse injury than thought. About the strongest you're going to get is Naproxen...which they gave her. Which she's not happy about either.

But I'm just glad she's ok! I actually kind of felt worse for the poor little kid (about 7 years old, maybe younger) who was in there with a broken arm. The nurses were trying to get a sling on his arm, and the poor guy was sobbing his little heart out!

Anyways, back on topic, you can totally ignore the previous posts, because, well...they don't make sense! lol I would delete them, but it's kind of funny.


Well maybe that's just me.

According to Dalton, Ryan's new name is 'Fluffy.' Yeah. Like a cat. He's in the kitchen this moment calling Fluffy to a cat.

  • My almost 11 month old has figured out how to get out of his crib. Yeah. As in, I heard a gigatic thump, a squeal, and hysterical bawling and rush in to his room to find him on the floor. Heart attack city.

  • Dalton now has a filthier mouth than a sailor. *Sigh* Can't figure out where he's getting it from. He calls everyone a smartass.

  • Dalton and his best friend Shayne have given each other nicknames. They vary from week to week, but Shayne is now Cheese Butt and Dalton is now Frank.

  • Ryan has now been moved into the "First Steps" class at daycare. Not because he's walking...even if he ALMOST is...but to make room for new, younger babies in the infant room. Also, he is a pretty aggressive baby (ie: throwing toys across the room, touching and climbing over other babies, etc), so he needs to be moved so he doesn't hurt the smaller babies. He's also doing more advanced things than the other babies that are the exact same age as him, so he gets a chance to learn things from the older babies in his new room.

  • Work is trying to kill me. I am now responsible for Houston, Austin, Tampa (and another location in FL), Grand Rapids, MI and Saginaw, MI as well as Portage, ME. Also, I added 2 more cities, Boston and Warwick, RI. Now, I'm going to be training an admin for Dallas next week. *sigh*

Potty mouth

My 5 year old comes up to me while I'm on the phone, and says.....wait for it......

"Mommy....The baby is in my fu**ing way!"

Thinking that SURELY I heard him wrong since I was on the phone, I said, "WHAT!!!???"

So, he obligingly said it again. The same.

He can't POSSIBLY have gotten it from me! Nope, no way! Well....maybe...if he listens to me when I'm in Houston traffic....then I'm sure he hears it a lot.

It's hard not to laugh, because it's kind of funny hearing it come from someone who has NO idea what it means. But, at the same time it's hard not to freak out and get irritated.......*sigh*


A fine line for sure.

Saturday, April 4, 2009 Builder

His first birdhouse!!

The incredibly nice guy at Home Depot guy hooked him up with the apron and the REAL hardhat! For free! With just the phrase, "Oh, well if he's a Bob the Builder fan, we HAVE to hook him up!" He is SO proud of his creation!

I really, really tried to NOT use so many exclamation points up there, but I couldn't find a sentence that didn't really need one. lol

Ever seen a cyanotic baby??

Well, I have. It's pretty damn scary!

Turns out thaqt Ryan's new antiobiotic, Augmentin is tearing up his stomach.

As in explosive diarrhea. I can't believe I'm blogging about this, btw. I mean, who writes about the diarrhea that their kid has??!!

Apparently me.

Anways, back on topic...

Starting this morning, he shocked me by suddenly and with NO warning at ALL, opened his mouth and shot a fountain of throw-up across the room and on me! All OVER me..and the computer..and the floor...and on him. Which led to me using THREE towels to clean it all up with.

As if I wasn't running late already.


Once, I got him changed and myself into some clean clothes (although I wound up smelling like soured baby formula all day), I took him and Dalton to daycare.

On the way there, he puked AGAIN!!! A-freaking-GAIN!! ALLLLLLL over my car. Thank God that the Honda Element is designed to be hosed out!

I got that cleaned up with one of my sweaters.

*sigh* Which means I went all day at work freezing my ass of, because apparently Chad prefers to live in Arctic tempuratures.

In the middle of the day, I got a call from daycare that Ryan had puked 3 more times...all over everything and everyone. And that he had to be changed 3 times into different outfits because of the diarrhea.

Sooo...I had to go get him. They also told me that his lips kept turning blue and he was having a hard time breathing. Of course, they didn't tell me THAT until I got there!! If they had, I would have broken every freaking traffic law out there!

It's a scary and helpless feeling to watch your child vomiting so hard that he can't breathe and to watch his lips turn blue before your eyes!

It turns out that babies can get cyanotic very easy from vomiting, so unless his lips stay blue for an extended period of time, then it's not really a big deal.

But now we have ANOTHER doctor visit to make. If he can't even keep his food or antiobiotic DOWN, then he needs something else!

Poor kid..................

In other news, I myself wound up going to the doctor last night. I also have an ear infection. Ryan was first, then Dean, now me! I'm hoping that Dalton doesn't get it next!
