Happy Thanksgiving

Adam's cold became a croupy cough (up all night one night coughing, but thankfully breathing fine) topped off with a double ear infection for good measure. He's been on Amoxicillin for a week now and is doing so much better. That nasty cold/cough that's lasting for 3 weeks plus is really going around -- my sister-in-law's kids both have it as do the kids of a friend of mine. Crazy bugs!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

A new look

Trying out a new look on the old blog. This one reminds me of the Cape, where I grew up. Okay, so I didn't live right on the water like in the picture, but it's the general idea of the Cape.

Not much going on. LD's in the sicky mode again -- this time, it seems to be just a cold (as opposed to allergies, or an ear infection, or early, early stage pneumonia again). He was coughing quite a bit yesterday and last night, but he actually slept pretty good last night. He woke up this morning with a faucet of a runny nose. Poor guy! He was in great spirits though besides that, so off to preschool he went (to infect those he got the cold from in the first place ;) ). Fingers crossed that we don't get a call that we need to pick him up, and that indeed this is just a cold.

And so it begins...

I just signed up to chaperone my son's daycare field trip in a few weeks. Since he's very cautious, I figured that would be a good way for him to enjoy it a bit and be able to go. He's still young for a field trip (3), but since his class is going, I guess there'll be other 3 year olds there as well. It's to a science center since they're learning about dinosaurs, and I predict many requests for dinosaur-themed toys for Christmas.

End of an era

Okay, that's over-dramatizing more than just a bit, but is shutting its doors as of November 17th. That was my site to go to for twin sets (yup, just call me Bree from Desperate Housewives -- minus the creepy pharmacist love interest, of course! ) that I always knew would fit. Damn, I'm going to miss that site -- however, they seem to be offering 50% off on everything on the site until they close the site on November 17th, so I know what site I'll be checking out tonight.

Happy Halloween

Dr. LD wishes you all a Happy Halloween. He had a blast trick-or-treating and greeting trick-or-treaters at the door, although I think he now is hoping we'll be going trick or treating every night.
