This may well be my first blogging dry spell. Don’t misunderstand – I have plenty to write about. But the weather is gorgeous, and I haven’t been able to resist the tug of playing outside with my boys.
Let’s see…Sunshine, a light breeze, laughing with my boys, occasionally hosting friends for dinner, reading a book, OR computer time? That’s an easy one for me.
Last week I HAD IT with Charlie’s reflux and marched ourselves down to the pediatrician’s office. Yes, he should have outgrown it by now. No, it isn’t – behavioral. No, it isn’t effecting his growth or attitude. No, it happens even a few hours after a bottle/meal/snack. No, it doesn’t matter if he is moving around or sitting. No, I’m not too interested in starting up the meds that have (A) never been tested for little kiddos (B) have no-fun side effects and (C) never really worked when we tried them a year ago. Yes, I am worried about the long-term effects of the reflux itself. But no, we didn’t leave with a new plan. Yes, it is frustrating (and bad for the carpets at home), but “let’s continue to wait and see.” Until his two year check-up. Then, I’m talking business.
Charlie didn’t spit up for three days.
Feeling bold, I had the carpet cleaners come out today.
Charlie’s reflux is back.
This darling new photo of Henry isn’t even one that I took. (OK, you got me on a technicality – I did take a picture of the picture….)
(My camera has been safely collecting dust on the kitchen counter.) Instead it was brought home as a school fund-raising project. Complete with a custom frame created by Henry. (During his “darker” art period.)
Today I really should be packing, doing laundry, and getting organized.
Instead I’m happily blogging, baking, and chatting on the phone with friends.
