Oh man- we've been busy around here. I keep thinking things will slow down... we'll get into some sort of schedule. But it doesn't happen. Homework is a fight. Ollie had to get stitches in his chin. Elliott had some mystery sickness and kept missing school. After a doctor's visit and a trip to the hospital for a renal ultrasound, we found out he has a kidney stone. At 8 years old. Huh? I've never heard of kids having them, but there it was- gleaming like a pearl on the ultrasound screen. He feels sick to his stomach and it hurts to pee. We thought it was a bladder infection, poor kid. Pair all this with carpool, helping at the school, babysitting and a husband who has had a couple of stressful weeks at work- it's been crazy. Linc hasn't been sleeping that great either. Since he can climb out of his crib he's always showing up at the side of my bed with his blankie and pillow in hand in the middle of the night or in the early morning. Every night and every nap I have to sit in his room while he falls asleep or he'll just come out. Dang taking the binky away. He used to go to bed so easily. I feel like I'm stranded upstairs the second the boys are in bed. I want my "put the kids to bed at 8:00 and have four hours of free time" back, but it's not quite happening. And my kitchen floor shows it. I'm trying to remember the last time it was mopped? Whew. Here's to a better week. And that Elliott can pass the stone and move on and be my happy little buggies again.
P.S. I know everyone is busy right now, so thanks for letting me get it out.
