Easter-not so fun
Well I think Easter is not Amber's holiday. Last year at church she fell down in nursery and hit her head on the window sill and had to get stitches. This year she has a cold, the stomach flu, and ear infections in both ears. We were able to go to a few easter egg hunts though-so Whitney got to enjoy it. I don't have pictures of the girls in their Easter dresses because Amber stayed home with daddy from church. Next week when Brooke gets blessed I will try to get some pictures of them then. With my mom around it will definitely happen. Now that Amber is on antibiotics the puking has stopped and her ears a feeling a bit better so I am having a lot better day than yesterday-which was really horrible. Amber had been up all Sunday night emptying her stomach. Right before we left to drop whitney off at the bus, Brooke threw up. So we had to quickly change her, then I realized I didn't have my keys. Where are they? SO i am franitically looking for them. I finally call Joe-he had them the night before said he left them out somewhere obvious. So after looking again in all the obvious places i finally search the laundry for the pants he wore the day before and yep found em. Ofcourse whitney was late so i had to drive her and cancel her parent/teacher conference. Got home and washed car seat cover and car seat-the cover was barely dry in time to go to the dr appt. Amber was screaming that her ears hurt all through that and while getting her prescription filled-then she spit up her medicine-i really hate forcing it down her-then she gags and throws it up. But I seriously had to about sit on the kid to get her eardrops in and her medicine down-so sad. I was about to cry when my mom called. It's funny how you completely lose it when you hear that voice. At least by the time joe got home i had two asleep. Then I went to the rescheduled conference with whitney's teacher where her praises were sung about what a smart kid she is..with that little break and positive news, I was feeling a bit of energy come back. It had seriously been a day where i wanted to just let someone else do my job. I am so glad today is different-at least so far. The joys of motherhood and i wouldn't have it any other way-it is such a great blessing to be one-even if every day was like yesterday.
