things are looking UP!
Fevers are gone…coughing at a minimum (until night when they are trying to sleep…why is that? And I do think the Vicks slathered on their feet and covered in heavy socks does work—but only for about 5 hours… then they are hacking away!) I think Logan is feeling better—and all I have to do is pretend I am crying to get him to take his Tamiflu and tell him that I am going to get in trouble with the doctor. I know—mean…but it’s seriously the only way. That is how I have to get him to let me wipe his nose now too…since it is raw he’s not liking it so much—he is constantly telling me “NO WAY, NO WAY, NO WAY!” (it’s so funny cuz when he says that he says it super darn fast… and on and on and on!) He demanded Ramen Noodles and Parmesan Cheese for BREAKFAST this morning…the kid is seriously obsessed with noodles w/ parmesan. He wanted it for lunch as well—Note to self: DO NOT buy Parmesan Cheese in the tub ever again…buy a fresh block and he won’t know it’s parmesan. Oh! And another quick story about Logan’s love for parmesan… since he’s big enough to get it out of the fridge himself I’m really having a problem! One day he demanded it—which is pretty much like every day. But he likes it just in a little bowl with a spoon…I know YUCK! So I gave it to him and started talking on the phone with my Mom. He was being really quiet and so I glanced at him and he had taken the cheese, dumped it on the carpet, and then—poured a whole bottle of water on top of it. AHHHHH! I about died. I remember yelling at him that that was a NO NO! And then seeking Mom advise on how to clean this mess up. After a long time of scraping, dabbing, and spraying cleaner on the carpet…I let it air dry. I decided I’d run the vacuum over it just to make sure it was all up. Bad idea! I know it had to be vacuumed—but my new vacuum smelt like cheese every time I used it after—even after changing the bag. K Parmesan cheese smells like throw-up in that kind of a situation! Oh gagging! So last week my sister, Dani, and I got the cleaver idea to put a Yankee Air Freshener in the place were the bag is. I’m happy to report that my house smells like a strawberry smoothie every time I vacuum now! K—that wasn’t such a quick sorry after all!
