When Brian and I originally decided to write this blog, we were going to make it about two different subjects….being working parents, and finding a job.  Well, I’ve decided those things don’t mesh.  So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t want to write about looking for work anymore.  I mean, that is what I do in my day job, and I really don’t want to spend my free time writing about it.  So there.

Besides, our kids are fun, and jugging a household with 2 working parents is tough stuff.  And, my mom bought us a nice new digital camera, and I don’t want to waste that technology on taking pics of resumes and the like.  I’d much rather share the kids with the internet. 

So, now that I have a real plan on what this blog will be about, we will hopefully begin posting more often.  And if the only people who ever read it are our family and friends, we’re ok with that.  If the whole internet decides to start reading it one day, well, that’s fine too.  Because, honestly, I just want to be able to look back at this blog one day and know that I did my best to record my kids’ antics and accomplishments…because I never did finish The Girl’s baby book, and I never even started one for The Boy.

I am going to have to lay down the law in my house. The children are no longer allowed to get sick or hurt. Stubbed your toe? Sorry, that’s a violation. Got a fever? I’m going to have to write you a ticket.

I guess I should get you up to speed. First there was the penny-swallowing incident. Then The Boy got Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. Apparently, The Girl was feeling left out, because she decided to fall off of the bed and bruise her ulnar nerve…aka, the funny bone. At first, I didn’t believe her…thought she was just trying to get attention. But, nope, she’s in a sling now. For a few days.

Thankfully, The Moms have safely landed at LAX this morning, which means that they can be the ones to dole out the attention, and I can sit back and relax a little. I am so ready for some relaxation!

So, The Boy wouldn’t go to sleep Saturday night.  He said that his mouth hurt, and it looked like he had a canker sore.  He finally went to sleep around 1am, and woke up at about 8am crying about his lip, his ears, and his hands hurting.  Random, right?  Not so much, apparently.  We finally took him to the urgent care after listening to him cry for several hours (plus he threw up once – thought it might be related to the penny from Monday…still haven’t seen that thing come out) and it turns out that he has Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease.  I thought that was a cattle disease, but I was wrong…that’s Hoof and Mouth disease.  He also has a double ear infection.  Anywho, after a whole day and half the night, he’s feeling better today, but on 4 different medications.  Poor kid.

So, I hope that you all have a great Labor Day.  I’ll be cleaning the house for The Moms, who will be here on Wednesday, and trying to keep my little boy comfortable.
