So, I have a confession to make. I recently added a counter to our blog out of curiosity. I just wanted to see how many people drop by to check in on us. I expected 2 or 3 per week maybe. Well, it has been up a couple of weeks and is sneaking up on 700 hits. Yikes! I know that grandparents probably account for several of those hits b/c you guys stop in pretty faithfully hoping for new pictures of the kiddos, but I am guessing there are some other folks out there too that I didn't know about before.
So, cool, right? Well, not really. I suddenly found myself with stage fright. And I felt pressured to come up with something profound to say, since people are actually stopping by. Well, I have nothing profound, but at this rate, if I don't post something, I will continue to feel anxious, and well, it will be a vicious cycle of non-posting for fear that said post will somehow be disappointing to those of you who check in on us.
So is this a post about posting, you ask. Yeah, kinda. But I also have some quick updates on us.
Kiddos laid out of school today. Braylen has a runny nose and cough, and isn't sleeping well, so he really didn't need to go. K & K could have gone, but taking 2 to school and then bringing one back home is a recipe for disaster. Evidently I am not nearly as cool and exciting as school. Had I brought him back after leaving his sibs at school, Braylen would have kicked and screamed the whole way home, and frankly, I wasn't up to it this morning.
In other news, it seems that I overdosed Braylen on Mucinex not once but apparently 4 times in the last 2 days. Thankfully he is alive and well, and we haven't been to the E.R., but I am definitely not getting any Mommy of the Year awards for this one. Holy crap! I didn't just slightly give him too much, I gave him double what he is supposed to have...4 times! No wonder his nose was a geiser for the last 2 days. So, after I realized my mistake, I had a small panic attack. I laid in the bed hoping he was breathing, checked on him a bunch and then finally around 1am this morning, just went and got him and put him in my bed. It is important to note that I had actually given the over doses the morning and night before and then again yesterday morning and before nap. So really, we were most likely in the clear, but I still felt better with him snuggled up to me. So we are all alive, and in case you wondered, Mucinex dose for 3 year olds at 30lbs is 2.5ml, not 5ml.
