The Aftermath

Well for me, the Holiday Season is officially over. I’m so glad, really I am.

Last week, Angry Toddler came home from school with a slight runny nose. Uh oh, the sickies have come home for the Holidays. Saturday night before Christmas, boom, he had another febrile seizure. The kid’s temperature was 104 when we took it. Where do these fevers come from? I swear the kid can’t regulate his body temps. So we drag him the ER, to get him checked out. They run a ton of tests, doing a breathing treatment (he was kinda wheezy), and send us on home.

Throughout the next two days, we battled his fever. Seriously, I think we went through 4 bottles of Motrin and Tylenol. Finally on Monday, I took him to the Dr. She diagnosed him with yet, another, ear infection, and sent me home with a prescription for antibiotics. We gave him the antibiotics and they stopped the fevers.

We went to a family friend’s house for Christmas Eve and Angry Husband’s Birthday. It was a great time. Angry Toddler loved playing with my friend’s kids, whom are 5 and 8. We then went home and anticipated the arrived of SANTA!

Santa came and all the goodness that comes along with Santa. Angry Toddler came out of his room on Christmas morning, and was quite delighted. He unwrapped all of his presents, yet kept asking for “more presents peas”! Thankfully, my parents showed up a few hours later with some more goodies for him.

Angry Husband and I unwrapped some gifts from my parents. I got a new Louis Vuitton make-up bag (yippee), some pajamas, and some perfume. Angry Husband got a HUGE gift certificate to the local fish store, and some Bettie Page collectible crap. He loves Bettie Page. I will NEVER be Bettie Page.

Angry Toddler seemed to get sicker on Christmas Eve, Caden’s sickness was up and down. He was really weak still and all of the excitement wore him out. He took 2 naps that day.

We had a great dinner of turkey, stuffed, mashed potatoes, and some salad. Poor Angry Toddler missed dinner cause he was taking one of his naps.

Since Christmas, we’ve been trying to organize the house. We keep stepping on little Hot Wheels and Cars toys. Ouch, those little Cars hurt!

Mike and I hit the after-Christmas Target extravaganza. Mike went a little overboard on the lights. I’m sure you will be able to see our house from space next year.

I’ve been a really bad blogger lately. I will and try to blog more in the upcoming year. It’s been soo hectic with work, preschool, holiday shopping, food, sickness, cleaning, and sleeping! I will do another post later and include some Holiday pictures!

I totally know what you mean about always stepping on little matchbox cars--our Trenches is like a minefield! The boyz have a little John Deere wagon (that hooks up to a little ride-on tractor) that is now the primary holder of all the little cars.
