Just Some Ketchup Talk

Well, we are somewhat back in the groove. I finally got a seasonal job to carry me over until the birth of #2. I will be taking kids portraits at the new photo studio in the Babies R Us. If you need your kids photo- or want one of yourself- let me know...should be fun!
Jack is better. We are officially on the road to potty training. I actually purchased some "big boy underpants" yesterday. Jack put them on when he got home from school. He peed in the first pair- he did not enjoy that. He walked around like a cowboy..."I don't yike dis! help, I'm so wet..." He proceeded to go 5 times on his mini potty after the first "wetting".
I think that those pull-ups are a waste of time and money. For sleeping-sure...it takes a while for them to wake up and pee. But for everyday use- Jack doesn't mention the potty if he has a diaper on...the pull-ups are just a glorified diaper that cost alot more. Thomas undies it is.
I started Christmas shopping yesterday, for Jack. I am so paranoid that I'm going to go early this time. That, and I don't think that I am going to want to deal with everyone elses "holiday cheer" come December. 2 months people- are you kidding me. So much to get done. OY!

Day 6

Jack has been sick since last Saturday. I am ready to pull my hair out. This has really sucked and I do feel so bad for my little man.
I went to the doctor on Monday, and he told me to wait a day or so to see if he got better before giving him ear infection medicine. Then I called his school, and they said that a fever virus has been running around that lasts 3-4 days. So I've waited. I thought we were on the up&up yesterday, but he woke up this morning with another fever. To top this lovely fever off, he has this congestion that makes him cough/puke up massive amounts of phlegm and whatever he might have ingested in the past few hours.
So we went this morning to get the prescription for Jack. Next Battle: Taking the GD meds!
I've looked online at cute little excerpts from happy moms in FL & CA and other abv. states and see all their tips and tricks of the trade. I say to you moms- Piss OFF!
My kids will not take meds. he has not since he was 1. the only kind of fever meds we can get into him are the kind that make you clench your cheeks- thats right. I fear the repercussions of this later in life.
"Just hide it in here, put it there...make a game of it..." You know what? You can't bullshit a bullshitter- and he knows. If you try and force it like my aunt did on his first birthday- he will puke it right back on to you.
What also sucks is that this small 5 dose jar cost $40. I've gone through 2 doses trying to sneak it in.
I'm just so frustrated..."just do this, just do that..." YOU DO IT THEN!
I know I'm not the only one, but hell, can't the DR. just give him a shot?
I called the doc today after I destickified myself and the receptionist said...oh he won't be in till after 1 but I'll have him give you a ring...you do that lady.
I hope I can get this shit in a pill. My luck it will be a horse sized gel cap that can't be crushed. MF'in medical companies.
Regardless, I hope everyone has a lovely day...I'm off to wash another shirt with puke and pink meds .
