Instead I have been spreading pine straw for three days running (with two little darlings underfoot, I might add).
Those little darlings have been awfully whiney at points since they both have the snots (just in time for Christmas).
Speaking of that, I took both of them to the doctor yesterday. I'm not sure why, but I actually made an appointment. An hour after that appointment time they saw fit to put us in an exam room. I explained that previously when Audrey had these same symptoms, she was given a prescription for Claritin. No. She doesn't need that. I also explained that I was trying to keep Christian from getting into the whole coughing-until-he-can't-breathe business. For him (and maybe for a lot of kids with asthma- I don't know) a cold turns into breathing treatments. I was informed that there was nothing to do but wait. When he gets to that point, then I should start the breathing treatments. Grrrrr. I did not leave there a happy Mama.
Even when they don't feel awesome, they are insistent on "helping." I love my babies.
Just a hilarious side note: Audrey somehow managed to get pine straw in her pants. This may or may not have been from rolling around on the ground playing some kind of game by herself. After that, she just kept trying to take her clothes off! We didn't stay long after that. I thought that may be a tad difficult to explain.
