Guess who is "sick" again....Thats right, Stephen. Well, supposedly sick again. I got to daycare Monday morning and he starts coughing and crying. The cough had that dreaded baby seal bark to it, so he was immediately sent home by the daycare teacher. I hadn't planned on a three day weekend, but since I was getting paid for the holiday anyways, I wasn't to upset by it. He already had a doctor appointment scheduled the same day to follow up on the most recent ear infection. Of course we are home for an hour and he is back to normal, running around and bugging his sister by stealing her baby dolls. To make things better, the doctors office calls and cancels our appointment for some "emergency." Oh, and the dr is going on vacation so you will have to wait until next week--AWESOME!

Today I drop them off and the most random thing came out of Stephens mouth. Really I will pay some one $1,000 if their kid has ever said this to them: "Mommy, I have boogies in my ear. Not this one, only this one." WTF?! Can someone please diagnose this one for me? I think we are on the fast track to tube in the ears.

You know it wasn't a good day when...

...You walk into the daycare and you immediately get the look of "Oh thank god you are here!" from the teachers. Then the first thing out of the teachers mouth was "I was going to call you." Oh great what did he do? Stephen runs up to me and I immediately notice a busted lip, and he's not wearing what he went to school in. WTF happened here? It all looked much worse than it was. He tripped over another kids foot and fell, resulting in the busted lip. So why the change of clothes? Well that was a whole other story. Stephen started a new antibiotic last night for the ear infection mentioned yesterday. Apparently he had a minor side effect----explosive diarrhea. It gets better. The poop is interesting colors too. The doctor warned me about that one, but I forgot to mention that to the daycare this morning. Opps! Needless to say they were pretty surprised. Poor guy, enough is enough already!

More Antibiotics!!

Stephen hasn't even been off his antibiotics from pneumonia for a week and we were right back at the doctors office again. This time it is an ear infection, AGAIN. This is number 3 or 4 in nearly 8 months. Needless to say it is probably time to have the tubes in the ears chat with the doc. Poor guy. He has a pretty good tolerance for pain because by the time he complains of pain, his eardrum is about ready to rupture. Either that or his infections go from 0 to 10 in a matter of hours. I really would like to make it an entire month without a trip to the doctor. It is only February 2nd and we have been to urgent care 3 times already this year. Enough already!!!
