Today was a bad day. A bad, bad day. Actually, it started yesterday when we took Keaton and Nolan in for their 4-year and 9-month well visits. All 5 of us headed into the office because I had to go directly from that appointment up to Wausau for my doctor's appointment (6-month recheck, still trying to get 3 "normals" following my leep procedure.) The boys had been coughing and running low-grade fevers so I had a feeling we were heading in to Round #3 of the year, but honestly, I was shocked when she asked if we'd been exposed to the flu and said she wanted to swab Nolan. I mean, I thought they were getting colds, but the flu?? Hahaha. Silly me. Positive. Influenza B.
I asked her what that meant and she said, oh, ummm, B...that's bad.
Although she didn't swab the big boys, based on their coughing and sniffling (and general crankiness, holy jeeze) she figured they probably had it too. So, three prescriptions for Tamiflu and Collin and I are supposed to call our primary if we develop a fever (we haven't, so far.)
The boys are, honestly, doing pretty good. Nolan's definitely the worst, but he's been sicker and the big boys hardly seem sick at all. But that doesn't stop me from feeling like we've just been given a death sentence. I'm just waiting for the shoe to drop.
When I left that appointment it was snowing, and not the pretty fluffy snow. No, this was gloomy, slushy, I hate winter snow. (I don't hate winter, but you know) Collin came thisclose to getting into an accident with all three kids in the car on his way home and I drove about 40 miles an hour, praying constantly, as I passed several accidents and cars in the ditch all over the Interstate.
Today we kept everyone home and do you know how easy it is to work with 3 kids at home? Let's just say NOT EASY AT ALL!!!! I'm trying so hard not to fall behind at work and, well, today was not good.
So! I'm in need of some fun, and what's more fun than a Name That Baby! guessing game?
Nolan turned 9-months this week, so I figured it was time. Below you will find three pictures - all of the boys at or around 9-months of age. They are labeled A. B. C. so this will be pretty easy - in the comments, tell me who is who.
(If your guess is already taken, please leave a comment anyway. I'm interested in the stats :) )
The first person to correctly guess the boys will win their very own Valentine "Love" sign. This sits on my coffee bar and it makes me so happy every morning.
Okay, here we go.....are you ready??? Name That Baby!
