For the past 3 years Brody has been sick for Halloween so I was determined to go to the church festival this year! I knew we wouldn't last long with both boys still not being 100% and a full day at school but we made it and they had a blast! We stayed for about 45 minutes before we started having a melt down (Jax) because it was time for bath and bed. My boys are do "routine" boys and if you get them off their routine I will surely pay :)

Brody was a fire fighter and Jaxson was a Dalmation.

Slowly but surely

We've still have had rounds of illnesses but we are slowly getting better. Both boys have struggled for the past 10 days with a cold which triggers their asthma. The fact that they both have asthma bothers me but I've been assured several times that most children grow out of it. They are both on steroids, breathing treatments every 4 hours and Jax is on amoxicillin to help him fight his upper respiratory infection. It's been a rough week but I'm finally feeling like we are getting their breathing and coughs under control.

The weather is beautiful this weekend and I'm on my way to have a date night with my wonderful hubby, dinner and the grocery store! We will have just enough time to get back to the boys for the next round of treatments, they hate having anyone but us give it and really prefer I be the one. I must have the perfect motherly touch ;)

I've had a cold since this weekend, wasn't getting worse but wasn't getting better. Yesterday my voice started sounding funny at the end of the day. Today I can barely talk and I just went down to the nurse at our school and she said I have laryngitis!! Unbelievable

Sick, ill, under the weather, oh good grief!!

We cant catch a break! On Friday I get a call that Brody is running low grade fever and his eyes couldn't stop watering. Jax had a rough night so I went and get them to give some TLC and rest. We nursed colds all weekend long and Jax is having a flare up of asthma. Monday I woke to an upset stomach but tried to just shake it off. It only got worse as the day went on and ended up with a stomach bug missing work Tuesday as well! Stomach bugs always hit me hard :( Brody didn't eat good at all yesterday and acted run down so I was worried he was getting it. We returned to work today only for me to get a call saying he had a runny poop so daddy took the day off with the boys! He hasn't had one since and is acting fine so I'm hoping it was just a fluke. We will try again tomorrow! Crossing my fingers, knocking on wood.

Till next time! And GO RANGERS

Much needed update

Well I'm blog updating from my phone. I never seem to have the time or energy to sit down at my computer and update or upload photos. I'm sure if I had a faster computer I could but that's another story.

We are all doing good: 2 month update in bullets

- Jax got hand, foot, mouth disease AGAIN! Extremely rare to get it twice but that's how we roll.

- He turned ONE! I know , crazy. We had a great party that no one showed up to, ha! It was actually perfect with just a few key people and the boys had a blast playing with their cousins.

- Jax has been walking since 11 months and is now climbing! The picture below is his new favorite thing, climbing in and out of chairs.

-Brody is now 2 1/2 and his vocabulary has exploded! Just today I told him how cute he is and he said "Aw man!" that kid is too funny.

- we've all had a round of the crud and now we are getting another round.

-work is busy, challenging and stressful this year. I hate my schedule with 2nd period off, makes for a long day. I'm thankful for my job tho.

-we got a new puppy! He's a golden retriever named Murphy and he's great.
