I love my husband. We're perfect for each other. He knows I love vintage furniture, especially art deco. So when he saw this baby at a yard sale on the side of the road he snatched it up for me and hauled it home. I was giddy with delight. I'd been wanting something like this to store our art supplies and other nick nacks, but I didn't want to spend any money on it. I'm so glad I waited. This was worth the wait. The picture above looks a little too serene. Our house tends to look more like this:
Diapers on heads and dining chair trains.
I took this picture a couple weeks ago when everyone was sick and bored and stuck indoors. Now we're all sick again and stuck indoors. Is there anything worse than summer colds? It's been miserable. I was trying to treat us all with natural remedies, but Legend now has an earache and he's on an antibiotic. I have a real aversion to prescription antibiotics and I don't like to give them to my kids unless it's completely necessary. I'm not sure if I did the right thing putting Legend on an antibiotic so early. His fever wasn't too high, only around 100. I'm just praying that God heals him and restores his immune system. Thaddeus had to have his tonsils removed at two years old and I strongly believe the overwhelming number of antibiotics that he was on were responsible for the increased number of throat and ear infections he had as a baby. They're just so hard on the immune system. And that's my rant for the day on prescription medications. Promise.
Now that I've been sort of attempting to potty train, I'm realizing two little ones tinkling everywhere can be a little overwhelming. Astair is all about sitting on the potty, she's been going several times all by herself already, I can tell she's going to be easy. Boston, on the other hand, is a typical boy and just doesn't get why there's so much fuss over a shiny white bowl when his comfy diaper works just fine. I'll admit that I'm holding Astair back a little bit because I'm scared. I really don't know if I can handle cleaning up all the "uh-ohs" right now. But maybe she could do learn in a day? Thaddeus took FOREVER to potty train so I'm very, very uncertain about it this time. I don't want to push it before she's really ready, but I don't want to miss it either! Today she used the potty almost all day. I guess I better go buy some big girl undies : )
P.S. If you read this far: #1 you are awesome #2 I'm sorry for the total random mommy rants
P.P.S. We celebrated Thad's B-day last Saturday and I'll post pictures soon!
