{The Reasons I Do What I Do...}

{Basketball Boys}

Mr E & Mr A have really been into basketball lately so we brought them up to the park so The Mr could teach them some things and we could all have some fun.....and of course I could take some :-D

{Little Mr @ the ER}

We had to spend the morning and leading into the afternoon in the ER with our baby Little Mr..... :-(

Poor baby.....The other day I noticed he had a scratch on his left index finger....not a big deal really.  Well over the next couple of days I  noticed it getting red.....I showed The Mr and he said it wasn't anything to worry about (The Mr is a medic in the Army, remember so I rely heavily for him to calm the 'mommy nerves' when it comes to the kiddos).  I was keeping it clean and keeping a close eye on was getting worse though.  :-S
Well, when I got Little Mr up this morning I noticed that the 'puss' had started going AROUND his finger and that there was more I brought him up to show The Mr and now I'm pretty sure we should bring him in.  So we got all the kiddos situated....shuttled Mr E and Mr A to a friends house to wait for the school bus there, and got Mr T and Little Mr dressed and ready to head to the ER.

Got all checked in at the ER.  They got us in a room pretty quickly....I was impressed really.  Someone came in to see us quickly too.  Don't really know if it was the time we were there or if it was what was going on with Little Mr.  :-S
So, they basically told us that he had a cold sore on his finger.....since that is the finger that he sucks.....he doesn't suck his thumb....he puts his index finger in his mouth.....and since he'd had a cut on his finger and then put it into his mouth.....yupp....cold sore.  Poor looks horrible!

BUT.....that's not all! the begining of the week Little Mr wasn't feeling well, and was running a fever pretty in order to make sure that these two were not related they had to run all sorts of tests.  They took some x-rays and ran some cultures and things like that.....BUT....BEFORE they did all that......
they had to put an IV in my baby.........

And yes, he looks all cute and dandy here after it's all done, but that was one of THE hardest things I had to do as a Mommy......I couldn't even BE in the SAME ROOM......I took Mr T and walked around the ER because I could hear him screaming and I was crying.....not such a happy time for Little Mr or for Mommy.

One thing that was really cute though....when he was sitting waiting for his x-rays to be taken.....which was right after he'd gotten his IV put in....he wanted me to hold him.....and he points to his IV to show me and he says "Look"
*shakes head* yah cool huh

They gave him some meds through the IV and sent us home with some more meds and a follow up he should be getting better soon.  But they said all is well........we'll see how it goes.  :-)

So we are all home safe and sound from a long day at the ER........

{My Stinky Camera}

I'm really not too sure why.....but my camera has been acting really weird and this has been going on for months and months now.  It's been really really frustrating.  Now, I have JUST realized two things.....
  1. I haven't been taking as many pictures I would like to....or should be.  I thought it was because of the whole camera thing...then I thought that maybe it was becasue I was fat (but I was usually behind the camera so it couldn't have been that).....I realized that I had really only been taking pictures because The Mr had been in Iraq and I hadn't wanted HIM to miss out on the kids growing up!  UGH EYE OPENER.....I don't want me or  him or THE KIDS to miss out on them growing up either! DUH!
  2. AND the stinky camera has been acting up....I'm able to get a couple pictures here and there, but not many and it's never a sure thing that it will even turn on.  I am able to use the camera on my phone, but come on that doesn't really take very good pictures and you have to wait FOREVER to take another picture.....and then you can't take very many of them.....and then you have to send them individually to your email only to download them to your computer to download them to blogger.....UGGGHHHH!!!
Yupp......that's how it's been going.....uh I have these rechargable batteries that I have been using FOREVER with my since I got them.....and my loverly sister reminded me that sometimes those things die too.....ummm....yah so I'm going to hopefully replace those soon and see if that works.....because I'm getting really sick and tired of not having a camera.

SOOOOOO on to my other reason for this post......well I've also realized that I've had it stuck in my head that I need pictures to update our family blog......I'm not too sure why.....I'm sure that pictures ARE nice to be able to see how the kiddos are growing up and how they look, but I'm sure ya'll would also like to just hear how they are doing....atleast while we'r figuring out this whole camera thing right??  Ummm kay....well since I actually have no clue if anyone even reads this I'll just pretend that ya'll do....kay.... :-)
So, I'm going to try harder to:
  1. Post more often even though I won't have pictures to go along with them.....or if I do they will be lame ones from my phone lol
  2. And when we do get everything figured out with the camera I will start taking pictures more often even though The Mr is no longer in Iraq :-D (which we are all SOO ever greatful for!!!)
Much Luvs for now!!!  :-D
