Today Gavin is covered in Hives. They are red and swollen and look terribly uncomfortable. James had them once when he was around 2 and we were told they are not dangerous unless there is shortness of breath, etc. and to dose w/ benedryl and cortisone cream round the clock. I think some ants bit Gavin yesterday and this morning he woke up vomitting and covered in hives. Not sure the vomitting increases the concern. I'm going to call my Pedi just to check in. Poor honey seem s in good form despite the hives:(

A brag on me

For one minute I am going to indulge my ego. I have been waking up at 4:40am 3 times a week for nearly a month. This is in effort to return to my body I got back by breastfeeding round the clock. Once I stopped offering my breast every 15 minutes the ice cream and cookies started settling in my tummy and bum:( I am now a very lumpy size 8 and I was so happy to be a very svelte size 6 a year ago. I must return to non lumpy body IMMEDIATELY, so I conned some other Mommies into joining me in the 5:30am bootcamp class that Jay Johnson(trainer to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders) offers. I was really starting to see some headway until I missed two classes after getting this terrible coughing virus. This is the final week. Please help me find the strength to got to the last class(it took some major mental hurdles today) and the courage to sign up again!!!

More Little Lessons

In the quiet of my mind I know that screaming at a cherub faced almost 3 year old is NOT healthy. Even when he has sharpied the back of your passenger seat in your far overpriced, gas guzzling, SUV. Screaming at your 3 year old will make you feel guilty in just a few minutes and in no way matches your parenting philosophies. Why, you ask, did I do it? Because I need some major professional help...(that's my husbands line)'s most likely from exhaustion because I am constantly chasing my sweet almost 3 year old and darling 4.5 year old and I coughed all night long for the 3rd night in a row.
I did feel guily 5 seconds after screaming:(
Some thoughts are cherish every minute because they'll be moving out sooner than you can imagine.
Some thoughts are not why can't you just color on paper?
