Friday already?!?

Man, where did this week go? I'm seriously not joking. I have no idea how we got to Friday. Um, wow. I can tell you that this week has been very trying. I figured there would come a time where I would wonder why I had 3 babies at the same time. This is the week. The reason? Teething. Yep, it's B.A.D.

See, Sofi ran a low grade fever on Wed/Thurs. I called the pedi yesterday thinking maybe she had an ear infection b/c she was just sooooo whiney. I was hoping it was something we could fix, right? Wrong. Dr. Nguyen looked in her ears & all was clear. Looked in her mouth/throat & said the throat was a bit red & would check for strep to be cautious b/c she knows we have 2 others at home, one that is super suseptible to illnesses & febrile seizures. She came back w/ the results & said, "The good news, it isn't strep. The bad news, there is nothing you can do for teething except for some tylenol & patience."

HA! Great advice coming from someone that doesn't have 3 1-yr olds at home, right? On top of all this, the napping hasn't gotten any better. I'm not so sure that I want to just go ahead & switch to 1 nap b/c what if it is the teething & these guys need another month or so w/ those 2 naps? Or is it that I am afraid of change?

On a better note, I didn't mean to avoid Mother's Day. I really enjoyed the beautiful roses I got from the kids, the wonderfully cooked breakfast from Todd (my favorite biscuits & gravy), & about 3.5 hrs in the afternoon to run a bunch of errands. It was perfect! Thank you Todd for everything!

Hope the kiddos are feeling better. Have you tried the teething tablets?? They are wonderful and help my 18 month old and 4 month old with teething. You can get them at any drug store or walmart. They are called Hylands Homeopathic Teething Tablets.

My mom wet the corners of washcloths, wadded them up, and froze them, then let the kids chew on them. They LOVED it and it really seemed to make them feel a little better.
