checking in...

~if you are on Twitter, then you know I've been sick since last Thursday. No, it's not the Flu and it's not the Swine Flu either. Just a cold that is kicking my butt! I even stayed home today in hope that additional rest/sleep would help me. Not sure I feel a whole lot better but I must go to school/work tomorrow, so I'll just have to tough it out.

~I haven't been this sick since pre-pregnancy days. Thankfully I do not get sick often (knocking on wood now)...Ethan was also sick, although he is doing better than me at this point.

~It's likely he brought home some bugs from the daycare...although hard to say entirely. He's only been going for 2 weeks so this was bound to happen. Many people warned me, but on the bright side it's building up his immunities right?

~I'm loving the daycare and I hope it stays that way. His teachers are sweet and we already have 3 art projects hanging on the fridge. I love it!

~I'm hoping by this Friday I am feeling 100% and able to go to the gym and enjoy a lengthy, non-rushed workout and run. Fridays are officially "my days" now that I have 5 days of childcare, although I won't deny I feel slightly guilty at dropping E off and then heading out to do things on my own. I know he has fun there and is learning tons -you wouldn't believe how his vocabulary has flourished- but regardless, I feel a tad guilty when he cries in the morning.

~Halloween stunk here. It rained. And rained. And rained. We went to a total of maybe 5 houses & headed back to our friend's house. It was more fun afterwards as we watched the Vols football game and just hung out. E enjoyed himself, although I do wonder if the rain had a negative affect on our health as that night he woke numerous times in coughing fits. Poor guy!


~a flower for mom...he picked it himself!!



~the most beautiful pumpkin EVER! he painted it @ "school" (daycare)

Oh no! I'm so sorry you guys have been sick. I've been fighting that getting a cold feeling but so far I've been able to refuse to surrender.

Love, love, love the little doctor picture! And I'm so glad that E is doing well in "school". He will get some bugs but you are right - his immunities are building up!

E made a very cute doctor on Halloween!

Get to feeling better soon and enjoy your "me time" on Friday. :)

I hope you are getting better. Don't feel bad about him crying, he'll get you back one day soon when he makes you drop him off a block from school because he's embarrassed to be seen with you, and then you'll sit in the car crying. It all evens out.

E is the most handsome Dr. I've ever seen.

The first year is the worst, as far as germies go with daycare. That was what my doctor told me when I was so frustrated working there & feeling like I caught everything. Because I pretty much did. =P She said it takes about a year for your immune system to handle the high-intensity assault of germs in that setting, especially with the babies since they don't cover their mouths when the cough & you are stuck wiping all those noses, etc. Better now than when he's in preschool or older though. You would both still go through it & at least now you don't have to worry about him getting behind in class. Hang in there!

Oh, he looks so cute in his costume! As long as you *promise* you won't let him be a doctor. Anything else is fine: PA, dentist, vet. But let me tell you something. Listening? IT'S NOT WORTH IT.

Hope you're feeling better!

Nichole-understood!! I actually just got the costume because it was cute and fit our budget perfectly (aka it was cheap). :)

Hope you feel better soon!

Very cute little doctor you have there.

love the cute doctor photo!

i don't think you should feel guilty for taking a "me" day. i think when you take care of yourself it makes you a better parent.

hope you're feeling better today.
