Ahhhh...... yesterday was The Girl's fourteenth bday. I was going to do the traditional "letter" to her and talk all about her birth and her growin' up years... but she is a teenager. And oh.my.god.mom.... don't embarass me! Yeah. So I would totally not dream of ever metioning how I gained 75 pounds when I was pregnant with her. Or how she was a week late. And how I was in labor for like 14 hours with her. And how she was almost ELEVEN POUNDS when she was born. (yes. ow) ANd I would DEFINATELY not mention how I had never changed a diaper before and so her very first diaper was changed in the hospital by a complete stranger who happened to be visiting with my aunt. And never, ever would I mention that her going home outfit was sized 3 - 6 months..... I would never, ever do that. Not in a million years.
Seriously, folks. My girl? She is a rockin' kid. She has her moments (days) where all I want to do is strangle her. But, over all, she is a great kid. A good friend. A fabulous big sister. And an amazing person. Happy late bday kiddo. I love you! And, oh, I would never embarass you like this in front of any of your friends. I swear.
Have any of you ever seen that movie Ice Age: The Meltdown? The one where there are the little possums? There is this scene in there where one of the possums gets hurt and the other is crying and he says "who will be my wingman of mayhem?".... LOL... LMAO... this is my boys! They are Wingmen of Mayhem! I am totally getting them shirts. I don't know how many times I have watched this movie. And every single time... that scene makes me belly laugh. If you ahven't seen it, you should.
SO, the youngest wingman is under the weather. I ended up taking him to the afterhours clinic this evening. He had a temp of 104.8. I freaked out. He has been running a high temp all weekend but nothing like this. I rushed him to the clinic and by the time he saw the doctor the ibuprofin I gave him had kicked in and his temp broke. Talk about sweating buckets. (Him AND me!). I was sure he was going to have a seizure from the high temp on the way to the drs office. If I had not already called them and planned to go tonight I would have just been headed tot he ER with that high of a temp. Scared me. ANyway, they think he has the flu. They took a swab of his nose and will call with the results tomorrow. I sure hope it is not the flu. I cannot afford to have all of us down sick. But, if it is not the flu then it is a viral infection of some kind. ANd we will probably all end up with it anyway. sigh
THIS IS MY 100th POST! Yay me! I have to think about it but i may decide to have a contest/ give away in honor of this event. Check back tomorrow for more information!
