So today was *supposed* to be Trendy Tot Tuesday, but the last couple days have done me in---I just don't feel like doing Trendy Tot Tuesday today!
As a peace offering here are Harper and Brielle today, looking cute in their Children's Place (Harper) and Carter's (Brielle) dresses.
And now here's a quick overview of my horrible last couple days. First, last night Brielle fell off the swing on our new swingset---go figure, it's been up one day and we have injuries! Well normally I wouldn't think much of it....she fell in soft grass and there were no visible marks. However like 10 minutes later we put her down and she falls over. Then she starts walking into walls! At this point we're thinking she has a concussion or worse----juuuuust great. Well my mom is a nurse so she came right over and by that time Brielle was acting pretty normal again. Eventually we decided that we thought she was OK and didn't need an emergency ER trip. But needless to say last night was a little stressful haha.
So that takes us to today. Raya was so excited because today they were celebrating her birthday at preschool! When I picked her up they told me she had cried and carried on about being in pain after she peed, but that she had acted fine shortly after and carried on with her morning. She had done the same thing last night to me but I thought maybe she just had a little rash or something. Well less than an hour later we're at home and she went downhill fast. Fever, wouldn't eat, wouldn't play, only would sleep and cry saying it hurt to pee, her stomach hurt, etc. etc. I had all 4 kids today so I made an appt. for after Lee got home, but by 2 she was really in a lot of pain and miserable....so I wake all the kids up from naps (that's fun) and load all 4 into the car (that's fun) and go to the waiting room (that's fun) and then Raya pukes all over herself and me (that's fun) ....seeing a pattern here? lol. In the end they diagnosed her with a urinary infection and we got meds. She proceeded to puke every time we tried giving her the meds, so we had *another* prescription called in which Lee went to get. Finally my mom came over after work and eventually we got some fever meds and the new meds in her. Now it's 8:30pm and her fever is broke and she is acting slightly better---fingers crossed!
And that, my friends, is why I'm wondering "is it Friday yet?!" :-P
