Possibly changing doctors-super nervous

So we had a run in with a receptionist at the doctor office. She chastised us for waiting until our doctor is back, in a few weeks from maternity leave, to continue vaccinations. I would normally not worry but my son had several reactions to the last round and so now I am concerned and want her input before we do any more. It isn't the doctor's fault that this lady was rude and shouting in the lobby, buuuut my hubby says we should just change docs anyway since he and I are not convinced that all kids should have all shots since not every person is made the same and some have health issues and sensitivities. So we want to go slow and be cautious while still giving our child as many vaccines as possible, although vaccines do not give 100 percent immunity. So I have scheduled another appointment with our regular doctor, but am interviewing others in case we continue to have issues with the secretary. I hate to change since my daughters really like and trust the current doctor. Oh well time will tell.

My daughter was watching football today. She ran into the living room from the bedroom yelling that the horses were winning the game. Well, my hubby and I laughed because the Broncos and Colts were playing and both were obviously horses! Too cute!

Hairy Mess

So my oldest child, she is 7, used the goo/silly putty her sister got today in her hair. She was making a hat of sorts but it got tangled with the goo. She proceeded to try to get it out on her own. By the time we found out what was up it was very very bad! It took the length of Area51 and 30 more minutes to get the goo out. I thought we might have to cut her already short hair! Thankfully I worked on it and got it out. What a mess!

Loving the weekend

Wow are weekends great! I enjoy my job but pumping and working can be busy. I am so glad to be home for two days with my beautiful children and a halfway clean house. Hopefully by then end of the weekend we will be well rested and have a clean house. The Florida weather is going to be rainy but that's ok, we can rent a movie and snuggle.:)

beautiful baby moments

Looking at my big boy, 4 months, using his feet to push to a stand in my arms, I realized that he is perfect! I love all my children and remember feeling a deep sense of pride and excitement when each of my daughters, now 5 and 7, reached a new milestone. Thankfully my son is growing and learning daily as well. Of course these moments are bittersweet since they grow up and move on from mom and dad at some point.

Work Work Work

I love my job but boy I had forgotten how exhausting it is to have children, dogs, a house to keep up and a baby! Hopefully as he can do more for himself things will get easier.:) Thankfully the weekend is coming and I can spend more time with the kids and perhaps sneak a nap if hubby is feeling better, he's been sick.

Tired Tired Tired

Well baby and I are both sick and one of my daughters seems on edge so she is probably sick too. Let the fun abound! The good news is that it is Wednesday and only two  more working days are left until the weekend. I love my students but dealing with kindergarteners when you are sick  grumpy is never easy. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.:)
