Long Time No Post

A few days ago Blogger was having some server issues and it was such a pain to post that I just didn't. I'm hoping the issues have been resolved now.

It's just been busy, busy, busy around here. Bagel is not feeling well. After his bout with constipation, and a subsequent week of loose bowels, he came down with a yeast diaper rash and then a non-yeast diaper rash. Now that his rash is getting better, he's got a fever and a runny nose. Bagel requires constant holding, so I haven't gotten much of anything done. The house is now such a heap, though, that I've been giving him an extra quarter teaspoon of Dimetapp so that he will get some sleep. When he's ill, he doesn't sleep for more than 15 minutes at a time.

Favorite Husband rearranged the furniture in the kids' room so that they would be unable to jump from bed to bed. (They've now taken up jumping from bed to table to ladder to bed.) We have laid down some strict ground rules for the new arrangement: no toys in the storage cupboard, no toys in the doorway, no toys blocking the cupboard door where the vacuum is kept; all toys found in the forbidden areas are subject to immediate disposal in a trash receptacle of our choice. I ruffled a lot of feathers the other night when I chucked Sonshine's Duel Master cards and plastic fire truck (which he had just retrieved from the living room and painstakingly laid in the center of his doorway, not five feet from the toy storage area). I really liked that plastic fire truck. Oh well.
