I confess I was not motivated to blog on Friday. I couldn't think of a single confession that didn't sound more like a complaint. I haven't felt creative or inspired to document the past couple of days in words or photos, even though we have had moments that have been pure fantasticness (mine own word).
Saturday started with a trip to Urgent Care because Trent woke up moaning and complaining of ear pain. Knowing that he had taken a hard tumble the night before I wanted to get it checked out. The doctor we saw could see nothing but told me that if he spiked a fever later in the day to go to the ER...ummm ok. He seemed fine so we went on with our day which included a birthday party for a two year old. After the party I laid Trent down for a nap and he awoke 30 minutes later crying with a 102.9 temperature. Per the doctor's orders we headed to the ER. Come to find out he has acute otitis media...an ear infection. Yes, I rushed my son to the ER on a Saturday afternoon for an ear infection. Not sure how the doctor in urgent care missed this one, but at least Trent got a cool hospital bracelet that he's STILL wearing. Can't wait for that bill.
Afore mentioned fantasticness included:
~ Friday night chili and cornbread with the Morris'.
~All the one on one time I got to spend with my little guy. Tons of snuggles and kisses while we waited on doctors and discharge papers. I love him.
~Jake and Sarah to the rescue. They stayed with the girl's while we took Trent. We came home to pizza, a sleeping baby and my brother watching Home Alone (have I mentioned before he's awesome?).
~Feeling like a teenager again. Sarah and I sat on my bed Saturday night talking about everything under the sun while she let me do her make-up. So fun. I wish we had known each other in high school.
I do have photos to share. Christmas tree decorating and tender moments between siblings. They will come I promise. Right now though it's time to beautify myself. Remember the gold shoes?? I finally have somewhere to wear them...stay tuned.
