MIA for a bit

Well yeah I know i have been kinda MIA for awhile. What can I say, its been kinda crazy here! First of all on Friday I was outside trying to be a good homeowner and trim around our fence that has overgrown and trim out any dead flowers from this summer.....and well when I was trimming the flowers with a hedge trimmer you know the ones that look like an over size kitchen scissors? Well not sure really what I did but it felt like I had a charlie horse in my back. OWWWWWW, yeah. So I very slowly put away my hedge trimmers said screw finishing up that project for today. I found out as long as I either stayed sitting or standing I was fine, but as soon as I stood up from sitting down owwwww. I was very stiff. Since mom was here i left her with the kids and I went to the doctors. He said I have a sprain back muscle. He gave me 800mg of Motrin and a muscle relaxer. Yah and of course relax HA hes not a mother with 3 young kids. But I did get lucky mom took the kids all three of them home Friday night so I just layed around and watched movies. Saturday mom and the kids came back we ran to get something, and out for lunch and I was dying,so she took Jacob and I home and then her and the 2 kids went shopping. SO needless to say this weekend was just laying around the house, having Katey warm up my heating pad, Jerry doing all the house work which was a nice change instead of him laying around all day it was ME!! Katey has been a big help willing to help me and really both kids have been great! They played well together all day since i was layied up. Jacob well he's his normal self who doesn' t have a care in the world. I will try to post some pictures again real soon.

picture day

Today Katey had picture day at her school. Iam shocked that she actually smiled! We handed in her paperwork, that I guess you have to fill out every year for each child regardless if the information is the same from the previous years! But its ok its a great school. We took a walk down to her room and she didn't want to leave, I think thats because of all the new toys! So she is ready and excited to start school in only 20 days. I guess not too much has happened the last couple of days......oh yeah its funny since we went on vacation this summer now every time Camron sees a plane you can ask him where its going his answer every time is "Aunt Rita's". But its just the big planes, not really sure where he thinks the little ones are going but the big ones go to aunt ritas! Or if he is "flying"someplace every time its Aunt Rita's again, so either when we went on vacation Rita left an impression on that boy or he just don't understand that plane can to other places.

Wow does that year look like a long ways away. But its really not. That is the year that Katey should graduate! Her first day at kindergarten is Sep 2, and she is excited to begin school. In away iam ready for her to go back but then Iam not. Yes it will be nice that when she is in school it will be just my boys and I, since the other daycare kids might be headstart this year. It hasn't been just my kids and I during the day for a long time now. What will the boys and I do?? Well her school day i think is from 8-11:15am or so, so really its just a few hours but it will be every day instead of every other day like it was last year. She has school picture day this week and she already knows what shirt she wants to wear! Its crazy to think that she will have a student ID card for school, and here the years I was in school no one knew what a student ID card was for!

yearly checkups

Today I took both boys in for their yearly check-ups. My first question is ---- why do you have to wait in the exam room for SO SOSOOOOOO long?? Here they know i have a 3 yr and a 1yr old and nothing to do in the exam room. So yeah they are getting bored iam getting to the point where i just want to walk out and sit in the waiting room, since they do have toys in their. So I guess when the nurse says the doc will be here in a few mins, that will be more like the doc will be her in 10-15 mins, good luck. errrr. SO anyhow Camron is now 38lbs and just over 3 feet or so tall, yeah bad mommy don't remember the extact number, but hey I took a busy 3yr old with me. He looks good. He still has his heart mummer but she's not worried about it. IF he still has it at 4yrs then they will send us to a heart doc, so i really won't worry about that one just yet. For the past year since i have learned about his heart mummer when ever I take him in i have her listen for it so at least we keep and "ear"on it to make sure its not getting any worse. We, well ok I will be taking him to a foot doctor soon. I swear that boy has gooffy feet. To start off his toe by the big toe, the nail will curl under when it gets "too long" so I keep an eye on his toes anyhow. But whenever I trim his toenails the big toe nail will spilt like 2-3 days later so he will have a "hangey" on the corner of his toe. And yes we call it a hangey, why not sure but it stuck. So they might remove part of his toenail she is guessing to prevent these hangey things. And since his toe was red on the corner where he last had his hangey and was sore she put him on antibiotics. UGH to the drug store we went.

SO now mister Jacob. He was like 22.10oz and 30 3/4 inches long. He looks good, cool! His butt is still sore and red looking. She changed the med that we put on his butt but still give him his antibiotics. IF his butt isn't looking any better by monday I am to call her and then she will send him to a different kind of doc to see if they can figure out whats happening to his butt. errrr! He didn't need any shots today which was good, cuz he was cranky from me having to wake him up for his doc appt.

Last night the kids and I went to mom and dads for a bit. We, the kids and I, jumped on the ranger and met them half way home. Katey jumped in with mom and headed home with her, dad, camron, jacob, and I went to "pooh bridge" too play poo sticks. Dad didn't know how to play so we had to explain the game to him and to those who never heard of pooh sticks, its a "game" the pooh(hence the name pooh sticks) tigger, rabbit and gang, will play. They go to a bridge with sticks in hand and drop them off one side and then go to the other side to see whos stick came out first. Yeah a very boring game for adults but the kids loved this game. We went back to "pooh bridge" after dinner with dad, katey, grace, camron and I to play again. I won this TIME!! So after we played pooh sticks we walked down to the Grand River and the kids played in the river for a short time. They had a blast, and the best part is it was only up to Kateys knees at the deepest part. So now iam hoping this sunday or next sunday we will take the kids to mom and dad's and take our water shoes, floaties, and such and play in the river! The kids could even take a tube under the bridge since the water is soo low right now. Katey is excited about doing this. And trust me I will have my camera with me this time.

poor little guy

Well poor little Jacob, his butt is still really red along with the rest of him. He woke up saturday morning with a red rash all over him. Called the doc and she thinks he had some kind of reaction to the anitbotics that he was on. So Katey and I took off for the drug store at 7:30 at night to get new different antibotics. We first stopped at twisters to get us girls a shake, but shhhhhh don't tell the boys they don't know we stopped. :) So now he is still covered in little red dots all over his poor little body. Not sure if hes itchy or not cuz how do you tell if a one yr old is itchy? I just hope that in another day or two he will be doing much better. ON friday i take both boys in for thier yearly check up. As I type this i can hear Camron playing with Jacob, all i hear is laughter comming from the boy's room. So i guess neither of them are going to sleep anytime soon huh?? Oh not sure if I told everyone but on July 25 Jacob took a few steps!! What a big boy he is now. Since then he has said forget the whole walking thing, he knows its faster to crawl as of now.
