Well it's been a helluvaweekend... James woke up Saturday morning with a sore throat and swollen tonsils. I brought him to the doctor and learned he has strep throat. He puked a few times (even projectile-puked while laying on the sofa). Luckily, we have a ton of Lysol wipes and I'm hoping the rest of us don't catch anything. We're going back to the doctor next week for a follow-up and to talk to an ENT specialist to discuss getting James' tonsils removed. I keep being told that he'll grow out of it and they won't always be so big, but I'm terrified, terrified, that one day he's going to suffocate during one of his coughing fits. He was never officially diagnosed with asthma, and my maternal instincts say that if those tonsils come out, he's going to be "normal". He missed school today and was so disappointed because it would've been his first bus ride there and back.
As for Leah, she's developed some dramatic and aggressive tantrums lately. I'm trying so hard to be patient with her, but I can only take so much. It's frustrating! She's so sweet, but anything can set her off to a screaming, kicking, biting, pinching little devil. Her Terrible-Twos are so much more extreme than what I remember with James. I'm told girls are like that, but it's a little hard to take. If she could tell me how she's feeling, I'm sure it would be along the lines of, "I'm mad, but you have to guess why."
Good things: Zac and I have been obsessed with watching LOST every night on Netflix. We just finished the season finale of True Blood and a 6th season of Dexter starts in October.
I've got an interview at Bath & Body Works! I'm so so so excited and really hope I can get hired. I've been dying to work for them for almost TEN YEARS now. Hopefully, I nail the interview.
The kids picked out their Halloween costumes and have been wearing them every day. The cuteness overwhelms me.
