Double Trouble

I finally broke down yesterday and went back to the Pediatricians office again. We had been the previous Friday but Jack seemed to have come down with something AGAIN. As I sat there weeping and waiting for the Dr all I could think was, "something's gotta give." Literally. I repeated that sentence over and over in my mind as the tears rolled down my face. Well, it turns out that something did give. Or rather someone gave Jack a double ear infection. Poor thing has never had one before and so last night we started him on his first anti-biotic ever. Hmph. Not really what I was hoping would give but at least we are on the track to wellness. I seriously cannot wait to wash my hands of the last few weeks. I am so over "cold and flu season" and will seriously cut the next person who gets any one of us sick. Honest. I will.

I was on the phone with a dear friend the other day and described my recent state of mind in this way. "I just feel like getting in the car and driving the wrong way in traffic while screaming and watching the other cars try and dodge me." Crazy? Maybe. Probably. Ok, yes. However, unless you are married to a resident and living near absolutely none of your family, 6 1/2 months pregnant, really poor (like broke), sick and nursing the rest of your sick family to health, then don't even judge. Besides, it's not like I did it or ever would. We could never afford the car repairs, or the medical bills DUGH!

As for today. Things are somehow better. My hormones are back under control and Jack has been so sweet. I can tell he is already feeling better and in turn, that makes me feel better too. Michael has tomorrow off and we are totally looking forward to the sweet adult Valentine's dance with free babysitting. Just when it seems it can't get any worse somehow life throws you a bone and you wake up feeling like you can make it through another day. Take a look at these photos and see if you can guess what said "bone" may actually be. What a stinkin' doll face.

Isn't pregnancy grand?! We have crazy emotions and the slightest things can set you off. I LOVE the pooping post because it is so true. You seriously make me laugh out loud with your posts, keep these emotional rants a coming! All us mom's can certainly relate. p.s. Jack's smile is great :)

Don't worry, the other day I lost one of Carmen's little brown chucks in walmart... I started bawling. It was just the tip of the iceberg of crap that has happened lately, but with these pregnancy hormones it was what sent me over the edge.
I feel your pain, really, I think our lives are pretty similar at the moment.

I LOVE babies' naked butts and their little rolls. If you ever need a little breather and alone time when Michael is gone, I'll be happy to provide relief and watch Jack for a bit.

I think it's funny how you said, "What a stinking doll face" and then post 3 pics of his hiney! (My fav. is the one where his weight is on one leg and his hand up!!!SO FUNNY. Please tell me you'll save it for his future dates!)

I'm so glad that he's feeling a little better. Ear infection? Yuck. Those are terrible! I completely understand how you feel...and no one can ever really understand until their husbands are gone ALL THE TIME and with little reward (=moolah that you can spend...you know, retail therapy!) I'm always right next door - so call me!
