Mommy check in

Anything new with you guys?

I know we are all so busy chasing after toddlers these days, but wanted to check in on how the mommies are doing.

Nothing much new with me. I'm on the job hunt again! Hoping to find something that pays substantially more than I make right now. I qualified for more, but with our wedding coming up in March and wanting to have #2 sometime after that, I'm on the hunt now so I can get my full year in plus some before going on maternity leave.

We registered yesterday. Lots of fun! Did Crate & Barrel & Macy's. Mike had fun scanning the items

Let's see. I finished my master of education a couple of weeks ago. I applied for a new job over the weekend. I'm working on a book keeping course, why I have no idea at the moment! DH and I saw U2 last night, it was a celebration of our anniversary Diablo and stayed o/n in Toronto in a little boutique hotel. Best part, aside from the concert, was getting to sleep in!

Actually, we just endured something pretty awful - Richie had to be in the hospital for a couple of days! I noticed that his ear turned bright red all of a sudden a week ago yesterday and within a couple of hours it had swelled up to twice its size. We took him to Twilight Pediatrics and they said he was having a reaction to a bug bite on the top of his ear and that it was also infected! I didn't even know there was a bite there! So the next morning it was blistering and we took him back to the doctor and they said he needed to be admitted for IV antibiotics. Poor boy, it took a swaddler and five adults to hold him down to get the IV in. He was such a trooper, though, he didn't like people messing with him, but otherwise he played just fine (he only had to be hooked up to the IV every six hours, they just left the port in). They had a great playroom on the floor and he enjoyed that and grandpa walked around the floor with him. All of the nurses loved him! It was a rough couple of days, but he's doing much better now. His ear looks almost totally back to normal! Just so you guys know, don't mess around when it comes to their ears! Apparently, the skin there is so thin, that if we had let this go even a little longer it could have damaged the cartilage and permanently deformed his ear!

Wendy, OMG! I'm so glad to hear that he is alright, but that is so scary. Poor little guy.

I'm just waiting for October to roll around. Then I will have 2 LOs on my hands.

I'm spending most of my time getting the house & everything ready. I was so sick in the beginning plus all my restrictions for the first half of this pg... that nothing really got done around the house. Needless to say, I'm super behind.

Since DD will be turning 2 about a week after DS is born, I have to have her bday party completely planned and ready. It will be here at the house but I will be recovering from a csect so I won't be able to do much afterwards. Nothing like some added pressure. Smile
