****UPDATED******Juan Valdez is my hero

Well, THAT wasn't so bad.

We woke up Saturday morning at 7:ish and just for kicks, I rubbed his gums. There is a tooth! Really! Only 1 day of crankiness & snot to deal with. Let's hope the rest are this easy.

I'll try to get a pic tonight

Oh. Excuse me.
Methinks the boy-child has begun the teething process.
Will woke up at 3:45 this morning a whining, coughing, snotty mess.
I really like my pediatrician, but he tells me that kids don't get runny noses from teething. HORSE-PUCKY! I remember when my oldest was a baby & he got a runny nose & slight fever every time a tooth was coming in. Same thing with Maggie. I've spent many a night in the recliner trying to catch an hour or even 25 mins sleep while holding her.

Will went back to sleep (sort of) in our bed as long as I was in a semi-upright position. Once Joe's alarm went off at 4:45, and we had more room in the bed, we were able to drift back off to sleep until 5:30.

I think my coffee mug is going to be my new BFF today.

How bad could it be??

One of the women I work with lives with her daughter & grandson. Last night, her 11 year old grandson went home after school & hung himself with a belt.

Supposedly, some kids were teasing him at school and he got into a fight. He was afraid of being punished.

Hold them close, ladies, hold them close.

My Kids

These were taken at daycare.
I think they did a phenomenal job! We ordered waaayyy too many sheets (as usual).

This one is our favorite.

Then this one.
She looks so grown up!!
