Tired of being healthy? Come on over to our house! We’re loads of fun this week.
-Water and chicken noodle soup consumption
-Whining (major contest over who is the most cranky going on this week! Verdict is still out over who wins!)
Bonus, kids will cough directly into your mouth as often as they possibly can. Chewing (and slobbering on) your pens and pencils and anything else on your counters included as well!! My kids must believe that sharing is caring because they are sharing their germs as if their life purpose is to spread strep throughout the world! Or at least throughout our family.
Payson had a sore throat that day but I’d sent him to school since his throat looked fine. After a positive test result from Sierra I stopped by his school to pick him up. Just in case he *did* have strep growing in him… didn’t want to expose the rest of his school more than necessary! So, I made three lunches instead of the usual one.
The little kids were not listening to a word I said and the wait was long. And I went over to look at Payson’s throat (just double checking to make sure it was as bad as I remembered) and he coughed right in my face.
And then while climbing on and off the table and attempting to stand up and jump on the table (and being sternly told to sit his butt down) he farted. And it stunk up the whole room and I was really annoyed.
The day we went to urgent care was the one day out of pretty much the whole year I’d decided to wash Ember’s carseat cover. It’d been covered in ice cream. So, we go out to the car to head to urgent care and I realize her carseat cover is still wet from the wash.
No problem, I put her in Payson’s carseat in the back. And then when I go look for our extra booster chair (for Payson to use) I remember Allan just put it in the trunk of his car to take to Goodwill since we never use it!
So our extra carseat and booster chair are in Allan’s car for when I use his car, and our second extra booster chair is in Allan’s trunk!! And Allan is an hour away at work, of course!
By this time Ember was buckled into Payson’s carseat and the straps readjusted to fit her so I just put Payson in her carseat without a cover! It worked in a pinch but geez!
