My new nephew

I just got a picture of my new nephew today. You ought to see him. What they have done with ultrasound is amazing. It makes me wish they had it when I had my two. You can actually see what he looks like. He's due Feb 3, but the docs are talking about inducing around Jan 28. I can't wait to see him in person. I'm hoping that I can go be there for her when she has Jay. This is her first child, This is my baby sister I'm talking about. The only problem is that she lives so far away, and I doubt that my husband can get off long enough to go, and he won't let me travel that far without him with me. If I went, I'd have to take both boys and if something happened to us, he doesn't know what he'd do. We've talked about this before. He's a real worrier. He takes after his father! What's so bad, I doubt that my father-in-law would let me go without another adult with me. It's like a 12 hour drive and that's only one way.

Here is a picture of my new nephew. Now you can see how cute he is. I showed it to my sons and they had to see themselves from when they were in my tummy. It's been a while since I've watched those tapes. I brought back so many memories.

I hope you and your family is well.

Ever want to shoot your husband?

Keep in mind that I woke up super early this morning feeling bad, my 3 year old starts coughing. You know that hacking cough that sounds like it's coming from his toes? Anyway, a little after 5 my husband gets up. This is right after Marcus gets in our bed. I'm wide awake, sitting in the kitchen reading a book, knowing there is no way I'll get back to sleep. My husband comes charging into the kitchen and asked the dumbest question you can ask a mom. "Aren't you going to give him some cough syrup?"

I thought of telling him no, that Marcus could stay there and suffer, but that was not what I said. I told him that I already had, which I had, about a hour ago.

What does he think? I'm going to sit there and let that child suffer? Does he think that I'm some cruel heartless person that doesn't care about her children? I was so hurt and mad, I could hardly see straight. Plus on top of all that, I felt bad. Not a good combination! Most especially since I'd only had a couple hours of sleep.

Instead of talking about it this morning, when I knew I'd end up saying something I'd regret later, I waited until he got home and told him how it made me feel. Luckily for him, he did the right thing. He apologized and said that wasn't what he meant. He just felt bad for Marcus and couldn't stand listening to him cough like that either.

I still don't feel better physically, but I'm not mad at my husband anymore. And speaking of sleep, I need to get some.

I'll write more tomorrow.

God's Blessings to you.

I'm having a pity party, Care to join?

Here it 3:00 in the morning, I'm all congested, I can't breathe, I can't sleep, and I have to be up in just a few hours and get my oldest off to school.

Why is it that when men get sick, we're expected to take care of them, and yet when we're sick, we're supposed to just suffer through it? My husband gets a small case of the sniffles, and I have to drop everything I'm doing to wait on him. I told you, it's a pity party didn't I?

I don't think it's what the kids had, no fever. Just a bad cold. But with a small one running around, I can't afford to let it stop me from doing what has to be done around the house. Oh well, I guess that life. Right now I just feel bad, but I know that if I really were sick, my husband would wait on me like I do him when he's sick. I'm just fussing. It's allowed when you feel as bad as I do.

I'm going to try to get some sleep, so I'll quit for now. But I'll probably write more later.

Hope you're well!!!

I love my kids but....

You've read some about my 3 year old, well Devin went back to school today, and after two weeks of having big brother home, Marcus has gotten used to it. The first words out of his mouth when he got up this morning was a loud "Devin". I hated telling him that Devin wasn't home. Now he's driving me crazy. Always underfoot, into everything. Being his old self.

I'm just glad that Devin and Marcus are well enough to get back to being their regular self.

Hope you have a great day today.

You will never guess how much problems I had setting this thing up. I've been trying my best to make this site very easy to use. Then along comes blogger. Oh well, I can say one thing. I sure have learned alot. Were it not for a friend, I never would have gotten this thing working right. His encouragement gave me the incentive to keep coming back and working with it until I got it right. Where would we be without good friends. You should go check out his site. Delaware Intercorp He has been very patient with me, and I do mean patient. This is all still very new to me, and I know very little about it. Another friend designed my site, then taught me how to use Dreamweaver to edit it. And if I have questions about it, she's always there to help. If you need a site, she's the person to go to. Altered Impressions

I've found a lot of good friends on the web. I know this thing can be used for bad, but if used correctly, it can be very beneficial.

I'm going for now, but I'll write more later.
I know I didn't write anything yesterday, but like I said last week, Monday is my errand day, so it's hard to find a little time to myself.

Now my oldest son has whatever my youngest son had. He's running a fever. After what I went through with Marcus, I wasn't taking any chances. I stayed up late just in case. (Do I need to explain what the just in case means?) Anyway, he seemed to sleep through the night without any problems, so I was up for nothing. Better safe than sorry. He's supposed to go to school today, but I'm keeping him home. The fever isn't as bad as it was yesterday, but I don't want any of the children in his class to get whatever they have. There is no way I can do that to any other parent.

As most other parents do, I worry about my children. I don't like it when they're sick. I would rather it be me instead. Unfortuneately, that is something I have absolutely no control over.

I'm going to go for now, but chances are I'll write more later today. I just figured that since I had a few minutes, I'd let you know what was happening.

God's blessings to you. May you and your family be safe and healthy!!!

Today has been a very uneventful day, and after this weekend, that's just what I needed. Marcus is feeling better.

I'm about to have to wake everyone up so we can get ready for church, but other than that, nothing has happened.

It's a shame when a boring day sounds good.
