You know, it was supposed to be an easy week with all of the kids off to camp and a few four year olds running around - instead here's a listing of what the four of our families have dealt with this last week:
-Husband to Amy, "Dr. Mark" had to skip two days of work this week with severe chills and fever and major muscle aches. I think he's feeling a bit better now
-Amy's son, Andrew had fever and chills to the extent that he drenched his t-shirt and had hallucinations in the middle of the night
-I'm now taking eye drops for conjuctivitis (to both eyes) as well as antibiotics for a sinus infection
-Mikayla had a fever Sunday night, and a mysterious pink tint to one of her eyes this morning
-Brayden woke up sneezing and coughing with a sore throat this morning
-Traig had a major night terror Sunday night
-and, finally, most dramatically, little Adam (Lisa's son) was rushed to the ER last night with febrile seizures, a result of a high fever because of the ear infection and minor pnuemonia he had developed.
GOOD GRIEF! This was supposed to be a "kick back" week, and heck, it's August, not January! But, everyone is making it through, still attending camp (does that make us bad moms or what?)..... and outside of the sniffles and such, the kids are truly having the time of their lives at Harlow. And, for that matter, us moms are having a major kick too. Just, lots of obstacles along the way.
Enough about that, on to some questions.
1. From Jodi- what is something that a friend (or multiple friends) have suggested you change, but you refuse to adjust, because you just don't want to (this could be a deep answer or something as trivial as trying a different brand of toilet paper)....?
2. What is something that you will NOT miss once summer is over?
