I am sitting in, what we so affectionately refer to as the 'pit' (AKA closet where our computer is located), and I see Big Brother walk into the room and place himself on our new scale (of which I didn't purchase) . In case you are wondering, the 'pit' is connected to the master bath.
I asked him to come closer so I could take a pic of him on the phone and he kept getting too close. You can see my foot in the corner trying to hold him back!
Then he stops giggling for a brief moment to tell me that he is on the phone and that he is very busy:
And yes, he is wearing his robe over his clothes.......yes, he was dressed...and before noon, too! (Check out the new lizard watch of which he doesn't know how to tell time from)
The he takes 'pictures' of me, saying he is going to "tecked message" the pictures to Mamaw. (You think I text too much? Or talk on the phone much?)
He is so funny! And this is why when he comes into our room at 2AM because he is scared of the dark, that I just snuggle him right in......he is too much!
1. When referring to the fit of a woman's dress at a wedding reception located in the deep South, "Looks like two pigs fighting underneath a blanket."
2. "No shit, Chet...." spoken in a drunken slur.
3. Guy says, "What's your name?" Girl says, "Claire." "Cuh-laire? Claire is a fat girl's name," responds Guy. "No it's not," says Girl.
4. "Wax on...wax off...wax on....wax off."
5. "I feel the need, the need for speed!"
6. "Nobody puts baby in a corner."
7. An old jazz singer says, "Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues."
8. "I wanna be just like you. I figure all I need is a lobotomy and some tights..."
9. "Despite my appearance at this function, I remain now, & will always be a Duckman."
10. "Mr. Nolan, it's for you. It's God. He says we should have girls at Welton."
11. Woman says, "High....I want a baby.Get me a baby."
12. "Whass happenin' hot stuff?"
13. "It was an accident. I'll take it again. I can fail, I know I can." Referring to test...
14. Teacher in class teaching in a monotone voice, "The answer is something 'doo' economics...voo-doo economics."
15. "You break his heart and I'll break your face."
So I remembered most of these myself in my free time (yeah, right) but do have to admit to snatching a few from the Internet. Good luck! :)

I thought I had caught it quick enough this time, but nope. He complained of head hurting (which is new) this time and then a fever followed several hours later. This was Wednesday afternoon. By Thursday morning we were at drs. office to get a Strep test. He tested positive. We started antibiotics that day and he fevered until MONDAY! WTH? We're talking 6 days of fevering!!!
Another thing that accompanies his Strep is the fact that his tonsils swell. I don't mean swell some, I mean the tonsils that are on the sides of his mouth (not just on his tongue), swell BIG. The best way to describe it is that he sounds like he has balls of cotton in his throat. He is hard to understand when he speaks. This happened AFTER 2 days of Amoxicillin. It really scares me because this has happened previously. I didn't start to count from the first time it happened, but I do know that it happened this past October, then at the end of May (you can read about it here) , and then now.
The last couple of times they gave him Orapred, a steroid, and that helped his tonsils to come back down to regular size. So, keep up with me--we went to Dr on Thursday, immediately started meds, then by Sunday his tonsils swelled up even more and we were back at Dr. on Monday. Dr. checked his spleen and throat and then tested him for Mono. After blood drawing (which was d-r-a-m-a), he tested negative for Mono. I mentioned the steroid and he was quite hesitant to give it to me.
It's not like I'm a freaking druggie. My kid's tonsils are blocking his airway, Dr. Asshat, help us out. The Dr. said it was time to get an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat Dr.) to look at him and he contacted the ENT who said it was fine to give my son the steroid. My son's tonsils on a scale of 1-4 were a 3 ! I know that the very first time he had all this (we were seeing a different dr), the doc sent us immediately for xrays and blood work b/c his tonsils were a 4! And I did mention to Dr. Asshat that I think it was HIS OFFICE that prescribed me the steroid previously.
He also said that the Amoxicillin would cure the Strep but if it was something else that was viral that this could last for weeks. I thought that maybe if he prescribed a stronger antibiotic that it would help because he fevered for so much longer this time? What do you think?
And his tonsils aren't big normally. They checked that when he went for a well check.Then the dr. made a few comments about how he doesn't just give out drugs...I explained that we aren't expecting that, that we just want him to breathe better and he's been struggling since FRIDAY......helllloooooo????
I SOOOOO want to get outta this freaking town and get closer to Atlanta so that I can have more options as to doctors and ENT's to choose from. I am considering taking him to Children's Hospital in Atlanta if we can get there soon enough. I realize that it is just getting your tonsils out, but I'd like to have a few opinions before we do this. I'm not crazy about putting him in the hospital in this town. I delivered Miss Bug here and the hospital did make some mistakes (that will have to be another story).
We did lower our house price again to try to motivate a buyer......to get us outta here.
My question to you is....what is your experience with Strep/Tonsillitis/getting tonsils out, etc? Have you had to do it? Have your children had them removed? What was your experience?

(You say you wanna go to rehab-- I say no, no, no....)
It was in a melodic, sweet baby lullaby-ish tone.........I promise.
#1. went out of town for the weekend
#2. Daddy out of town all week
#3. babysitter drama (Miss Bug says 'no' to babysitter)
#4. Big Brother has strep throat
So I've had NO time to even hardly check email let alone post! It has made me sad! I have one interesting post to discuss, but will have to do it this afternoon. I went out of town last weekend and was gone for 2 nights (yesssss!). I went to go and visit my friend who is in outpatient therapy for alcohol addiction. This is her second time--first time she was in inpatient. This time it is outpatient and she invited me to a family night. I happily went. It was amazing. I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys have to say.
Hope you have a great Friday! Maybe I'll get to do a Friday Fill-in too--a special treat!

So, I've tried to find other things to do (other than placing small children in front of the TV hence more Diego). It's pretty sad when the only entertainment in your town is going to play at the playplace at Chick-Fil-A! (And you know that place gets n-a-s-t-y...) But if that is what will give me a few minutes of peace, then so be it. Those cookies-n-cream milkshakes are pretty tasty as well.

Anyone else in shock? Are you with me on the hair thing or no?
(If you don't know what I'm talking about...The Bachelorette--Craptv again!)
Sunday, July 6, 2008
Here she is in all her glory....now you can't tell me she's not the cutest thing you've ever seen other than your own, can you?
What a look of determination in her eyes. We are in trouble once she becomes mobile. We're also still waiting for hair so I can put some cute bows in it! Happy Belated 4th!

I will leave you with a 'funny' for the day--a conversation with Big Brother:
Me: Big Brother, it's rest time (sounds better than the dreaded nap word). Remember, if you want to go see fireworks then you have to lay down for a little while.
Big Brother: But can I just watch one more show?
Big Brother (Under his breath): Kill joy.
I WAS CRACKING UP! The 4 1/2 year old can use in context.......
Can anyone name the movie this is from?
I'm off to shop on Ebay and Etsy. Just bought some cards custom made by Sara and Abraham--if you are interested in her stuff which is oh-so-cute, click on her name on my blog roll.
Everybody BE SAFE! I don't want to read any posts about small children and fire!
PS. It was George Clooney who was the #1 sexiest TV doc. Patrick Dempsey was #2. I'd probably have to agree..........no?

Have NO idea what we are doing tomorrow and I usually have a plan, especially for the 4th of July! We have been out of town, then came home, then Daddy just came home tonight, so we haven't even had a chance to even discuss what we are doing. It will probably be one of us takes Big Brother to see fireworks while the other stays home to let Miss Bug sleep. It's all good. I'll do either of the two......
Nothing else going on other than that. We all took naps today. Hallelujah. Miss Bug's was the shortest, and that is wrong........ especially seeing as how she was the one up twice in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Then Big Brother came in at 4 am to tell me that his water was empty and I needed to refill it. Who wakes up enough to do all that--realize there's no water, want more water, walk all the way across the house in the dark to tell me, and then walk all the way back to bed? My son, obviously.....Ammmazzzinggg.
And I got flowers from the Hubby! How sweet.
Have a great July 4th and thank a soldier.

#1. Called homeowner's insurance about estimate for roof damage
#2. Called medical insurance about reimbursement for sedation/dentist.
#3. Called car insurance about car damage.
#4. Called Direct TV b/c our satellite is OUT! (no Bachelorette last night--no TV period)
#5. Called Bassett furniture about delivering our mattress.
#6. Call Gap b/c bill was late and just realized it. Made sure they would remove fee or I would be cutting up the card. I do love a Gap Reward or two, but not if they don't take care of their valued customers.
#7. Call babysitter...
#8. Go to grocery.
WHAT IS NEXT? Can I call anyone else? Please? Can anyone else take my money today? Seriously.
Put Miss Bug down to nap at 9:30 and she is up at 10:10. That is just wrong.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.
And who is going to want to look at our house when we have that big ass tarp covering the chimney? Must get a pic for you to have the lovely visual.......
