So happy it's Friday (not that that matters to me, I suppose).
Mark got sick Wednesday.
Then broke out in hives Thursday.
Then Morgan broke out in hives overnight.
Big red welts on her arms and legs. And really itchy.
I wish I knew what caused it - in both of them. Could it be the same thing?
So Mark went to the doctor yesterday and got a steroid shot. I was able to get Morgan into the doctor this morning and of course, as I was undressing her and putting her little gown on, they were all but gone. Today, I was that over anxious, crazy mom, taking her kid into the doctor for what was seemingly nothing. Except I didn't want them to get as bad as Marks. We saw a new doctor in the practice today, and luckily, she was
So, after all the time in the car, and the waiting, and the trip to Target for anti-itch cream and bath soak, and the waiting, we were gone way longer than I cared to be. Especially since I was planning on this being a lazy, go-nowhere day. I pushed them to the limit. Beyond the limit. I now know what Parker is like without his 2+ hour morning nap. Oy! (We moved him out of this infant car seat just this week and into Morgan's old convertible seat. Now I can't just pop him in and out of the like I used to. And he loves to sleep in the car, so I had to wake him up a couple times to get him into the stroller.) Really, both of them were great about the whole thing, as I apologized over and over.
We are finally just finishing up lunch. Morgan is freshly bathed and clean and lubed up. Next up, a bath for Parker, in hopes of getting him to simmer down and induce a fantastic afternoon nap. We could actually all use a good nap.
Happy weekend everyone. I can't believe this is already the weekend we are celebrating Kristin and her little men and showering her with love and lots of baby goodies. I'm so excited!!
