The Day after Christmas

Christmas was great. Lots of fun - lots of wrapping paper, food, and fellowship with family. But its the day after Christmas that will be the day to remember:
  • First thing in the morning, took Rene' to the Dr. for yet another ear infection that burst her eardrum Christmas Eve. She has to get tubes now.
  • Zak played with his Moonsand he got for Christmas then had a horrible rash all over his hands. Guess he's alergic to Moonsand.
  • By the end of the day, I'm flat on my back sicker than a dog.

And that has been the last 3 days - me in bed sick.

Good times. Christmas 2007.

Oh NO!!! Several things here...the tubes are a blessing. I'm so sorry she was hurting though, and another bursted eardrum? My poor chunkers!! I have missed her like crazy. And two, moom sand is the devil, I'm sorry no one in your family got the memo on that but I hear the ONLY way you should let your kid play with moon sand is if you have a Dyson (we do not!) Gracie played with some in June and I still find pieces of it in the kitchen floor tile. Ugh. And YOU are sick? Is that even possible? You've nursed the kiddos through a gazillion colds and viruses and NOW you get sick? That is so unfair! I'm so sorry. Everyone feel better soon. BIG HUGS!!

Sorry to hear you were sick. Hope you're feeling better!
It was play dough for us this year. Lily LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEESSSSS it! But it looks like I have rainbow "sprinkles" underneath my kitchen table from all the play dough "fall off!"
It was a good Christmas, though, just the four of us. We had a great time and played some new board games with Lily.

Miss you.

Oh, I'm so sorry you're sick. It's so not fun for the mom to be sick. Ugh.

And I'm sorry about the ear infections. My youngest got tubes when she was 14 months old and it was the best thing that could have happened. She's never had another ear infection since...and she's almost 6!

And moon sand. So fun. Do you detect the sarcasm? I only let my daughter play with it on a cookie sheet, which I shake into the trash can when she's finished. But it sounds like your son might not be playing with it ever again. So sorry.
