Friday - school nurse calls to tell me oldest child has ringworm and needs doctor's note to return to school on Monday. Schedule appt. with pediatrician and am advised to use Tinactin.
Saturday - husband to urgent care (sinus infection)
Monday - oldest to doctor, who says yes this is ringworm and treat it with Tinactin. (I spent the whole morning and $20 on this.)
Tuesday - storm arrives
Wednesday - life on hold for storm. No school. Crazed children trapped in my house.
Thursday - middle child to dr. (strep)
Friday - youngest child to dr. for follow-up on ear infection. It was in just one ear, now it is in both.
It's the kind of week that makes me feel like I will never be free of my children. I do love them. I love that my oldest is interested in chapter books now. I love that our middle child always has an answer when I ask if he had a dream last night ("I was on a pogo stick shooting bad guys with a water gun"). I love it when our youngest complains that his brother is "saying too many words. I want a turn!"
I also want them to LEAVE ME ALONE! Anyone want to meet me in Hawaii for a couple of weeks on the beach?
