Isaac finished throwing up about midnight...and slept pretty good all night. I just gave him pedialyte all day until about 6pm, then I started mixing a little milk with it...and he's done GREAT! No wretching, I was able to take the O2 off of him....he's just amazing!

took the team pictures...
and a few of Isaac..
that's me...getting some lovin' from my baby..
Hi Mr. Isaac..
with the cotton ball in your ear!
Isaac went to see the ENT. He COULD see the tubes and said that they were working. But, he did have lots of fluid in them...so, he suctioned it out, and gave us more drops for two weeks. Then, we go back to make sure the fluid cleared up.
Chris...got his mohawk today. I DO NOT have pics yet...it looks a little dumb. Tomorrow morning, we're waking up super early to do the liberty spikes with it. So, I'll take pics in the morning. Just imagine...my young man with his long locks....now, has the sides of his head shaved and long locks only down the middle. I don't know how long I'll be able to look at that head....but, I'm keeping an open mind.
Your funny story for the day:
This actually started on Saturday. A soccer mom at the game came up to Joe and said,
soccer mom--"are you Eli's dad?"
soccer mom--"Well, I graded the kids papers on Friday, and Eli wrote all about you. My fat daddy works in an office. My fat daddy got caught by the police. My fat daddy cried......etc.
Every sentence started with MY FAT DADDY" Is that what he calls you?
Joe--"yes...that's what he calls me"
Fast forward to today.
Joe actually gets a speeding ticket.
Eli overhears us on the phone and said, "OH MY GOSH....my sentences came true. Fat daddy got caught by the police and fat daddy cried!"
You should have seen the look on his face!
So, tonight...Joe asked Eli if he could write different sentences this week.

Well...sir NEVER SLEEPS ALOT is at it again. I don't know what's gotten into this little thing! He started off his day retching and throwing up:( Then, Nora (pt) and Dawn (our new DS) came for a visit. Isaac was pooped after only 30 minutes of working! He had a little green snot...so, I scheduled an appointment with the peds this morning to make sure those ears were all cleared up. The ears checked out great...but, the wonderful peds (that's right...the whole practice) we have gave me a script for antibiotics if he got worse this week.

Mr. Isaac was up and dancing in his crib at 4:00am this morning!!! That baby better be glad that I LOVE him! We ate breakfast at 5am, got Chris off to seminary, kissed Joe off to work...and crawled back into bed by 7am. I got out at 7:45 (feeling like a truck ran over me)....walked downstairs...and there is my big angel! Eli is all dressed, shoes on, hair done (even with gel), his backpack is packed, he packed his lunch, and made himself breakfast. seriously. Now...in his lunch box he packed: pringles, jelly beans, and pop tarts. I decided to add a lunchable and a juice box...but, he did awesome!

Happy Easter everyone!
Our day didn't go as planned...but, like always...we made the most of it.
Joe was suppose to sing with the choir today at church....but, he got called in to work all morning. I woke up with a hang-over from all the benadryl and aleve that I had to take yesterday. Isaac woke up snotty again...so, we all stayed home during the morning (except Joe, who was working). Then, Joe came home and took the kids to the park for FORCED FAMILY FUN! They took the soccer ball, basketball, football....just enough goodies to have fun! (Isaac and I stayed behind to try to get a nap...didn't work)
It truly is amazing the small amount of time that Joe has at home with us....and all that he packs into those precious hours. One-on-one time with each boy, he fixes whatever I need fixing, and he finds a tiny bit of time to play on the computer or read a few pages of whatever book he's on. My house if just full of superstars!
The boys got HUGE Star Wars kites in their Easter baskets...and wouldn't you know...it's been like a stinkin' tornado here for weeks....and today...nothing. Not one gust of wind to try those kites out! figures.
Isaac has his cardiology appointment tomorrow morning...oh, I hope nothing has changed and we don't even need to schedule a cath or MRI (because, it's been over a year now with NOTHING done to his heart....yikes!) The big boys are back in school tomorrow...oh, it's going to hurt getting up at 5:30 in the morning!
I'll update tomorrow how the appointment went...and MAYBE...you'll get some pics!
**oh...and I just made myself cinnamon rolls (at 9:45 at night!)...now, that's really going to help shrink my bum and belly...isn't it??

What can I say?? The big boys are enjoying their spring break. Although we aren't traveling out of town on a grand vacation...they're having a blast spending the night with friends, having friends spend the night here...staying up super late, eating WAY too much junk, playing way too many video games....just enjoying themselves. Sad news to share though.....Charlie, Eli's fish, died. He's lived almost two years...what a fish. Eli did a great job taking care of him...so, we told him that we'd go out this weekend and find him a new one. He said that he'd rather have a lizard! yikes....I don't know about that one...but, we'll see. (his puppy dog eyes have a way with me). He asked me if we had a coupon for a lizard (my little angel!).

who's a happy baby??
I think those pictures speak for themselves...he's one happy little man! Still the snot monster...but, he doesn't let that pull him down. This little angel makes everything else in our world seem irrelevant...when he's happy...what else matters?? Nothing. He's taught us all what really matters in life...and I'm going to make sure he's happy each and everyday (and don't tell Chris..but, if he makes a C in Algebra, I probably won't even care...)shhhh....
I don't pick favorites...I'd love to show you pics of the other boys....but, Eli's spending the night at Mandy's house and Chris is hiding out in his room. So, it's just Isaac and I burning the midnight oil!
I just typed this long rant and deleted it. Here it is in an outline:
Wouldn't it make sense instead of this stupid stimulus package (that will take months and years to filter through)....if the President instead, used that money to help all the banks refinance ALL mortgages to current market value. Ban second mortgages for a few years. Putting people in homes that they could afford, instead of forcing them to lose everything. I think that everyone would even approve of a tax increase, if it meant everyone would have the opportunity to keep their house. (and use that increased tax revenue to help fund the mortgage re-writes)
it's pretty simple.
I'm not a rocket scientist...just a finance major in college (that happened to be a party school)
BUT, if the housing market were fixed...wouldn't that be the stepping stone to jump starting the economy??
or...maybe jet setting across the country and just talking about it will help fix things?
just my two cents.
