So here is a story about these hats (and yes Amanda I did find them at Naartjie :)….
I was looking for the sleep caps for pictures and found red ones and was so excited. UNFORTUNATELY when I MADE Tanner try one on, he “took a fit” hee hee. He told me QUITE adamently that he was NOT under ANY circumstance going to wear that STUPID hat and NO not EVEN for pictures!!!!!! I tried to negotiate but it was clear…my seven year old was absolutely putting his foot down. He did, however, like the red beanie so mom was forced to compromise. Ty didn’t like it either but I didn’t think a four year old should get to have a choice yet especially considering he was just echoing the opinion of his brother. At the end of the day, none of the hat pictures turned out anyhow!!! Grrrrr. I’ll have to try another shoot with those in the future because I DO think they are cute! I do have a couple of cute ones of Ty in his so you’ll get to see it better later.
I took Tori to the pediatrician today and he said that her nose, throat, ears, and lungs were all FINE. He suspects she has allergies. He told me to give her 1/2 tsp of children’s benadryl before bed to see if that will help. I don’t think her coughing for two hours every night is allergies. She is choking on phlegm (how do you spell that?). Ick. I hope she quits this soon. Last night Jim got up with her from 2:00 to 4:00 am. This stinks.
The Dr. did give me a referral to a developmental pediatrician though to get a more thorough diagnosis for Ty. Sensory Processing Disorder can be BEYOND frustrating and Jim and I are at a point of needing help. Praying this Dr. will give us good insights and better understanding.
This week I am trying to get through a list of things because next week school starts back up so I want to maximize my opportunties for projects. (Note to Heidi – you will be well pleased with how I have spent my time. Package not in the mail yet but it will be by next week I hope – anxious for you to see). Doesn’t it just seem though that sure as shootin’ when you want to set aside time for projects, little things keep creeping into your day to distract you??? Frustrating.
Ty Funny – this weekend while I was sick, I was trying my best to get Jim to be Mr. Mom. My plan was to just look at him with a really sad sick face everytime a mom chore arose. It took a little coaxing even then. By the end of day on Sunday the house looked like a nuclear test site. At about 8:00 PM, Ty comes in and says “MOMMY can you HELP us! I am HUNGRY!” LOL. Daddies are great and all (and our kids have a SUPER great one) but they are NOT mommies! That is how I knew my sick time was over.
