I’m a terrible mom. Really. I’ve been going crazy the last couple of days listening to my 18month old crying and the other three making all kinds of noise (Spring break – weather too cold to play outside, add it up) so today my hubby took the morning off work to take the youngest two to the doctor. I would have, but I was not “stable” after the last few days. LOL! I just needed a bit of break 🙂 He gets back and sure enough, my 18month old has an ear infection and my 3 year old has a throat infection. I knew they had colds, but suspected it might be something more. Yep. WHY didn’t I take them in when it started 2 days a go?!?!? Yep. Bad mom. I’m too tired to care right now, though. Did I mention 4 kids in the house, 3 of them sick, crying, coughing, tired, whiny, fighting….
Anyway, my hubby tells me that the doctor measured their height and J is measuring at 3 feet! She is only 18 months. Our 3 year old is only a couple of inches taller. They are almost the same height and there are 2 years between them! I’ve heard that if you double a child’s height at age 2, it will determine their adult height. If that’s true, then J takes after her grandpa on her dad’s side. I measured my older girls when they were two and if my calculations are correct – they will be about 5′ 5″ when they are grown (which is my height). If J is measuring 3 feet at 18 months…. YIKES GIRL!
She is so darn cute right now. Her favorite words are “thank you”, “shower”, “head, shoulders knees and toes”, and of course “No”. My little doll is such a sick little thing right now – not herself at all. Normally she doesn’t make a peep, just plays quietly, even being a goofball just to get a laugh. Hmm.. sounds like my husband 😀 Listening to her crying, whining, her being clingy non stop has been hard to handle, for both of us. It must be extremely frustrating to be sick and not able to communicate her woes to me. I wish I could just make it all better. I suppose the antibiotics will do the trick 🙂
Oh, I tried the fun new hairstyle over at Jenn’s and I love it! I did it slightly crooked, I know, but it was my first time. I’m just SO excited to know how to do the corkscrew thingy. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to know how to do that! Her video really makes it easy to understand. Love it!
Okay, I’ve gotta get back to scrapping. I’ve got about 4 layouts to get caught up to this month. I’m so close I can taste it! I don’t know if I’ll share ALL of the pages – some of them are less than stellar, but they are scrapbooked and I’ve told the story behind them. I’m getting so, so excited the closer I get! YIPPEE!
