I guess now is the time to admit it. The binky withdrawal, it's not the kids, it's us. Man...they never shut up!!! It's 9:23 PM, they were put to bed 1 1/2 hours ago, sick, with fevers, well-dosed, and they are in their room just chatting away. One swift binky in the mouth and they'd be out in just moments. It's not like they cry for it, or ask for it. That sound you hear is me! We tried it before and they just didn't understand. This time, it's really been no big deal. Except that they sit in there and chat for hours.
As for the family update. We're sick. The boys are both running temps between 101-102 degrees. Mine has been consistently at 101 for the last 5 days. The doctor on Saturday did find blood in the urine, but not enough to signify a kidney infection, so I'm drinking my water and hoping it all passes easily. It's been REALLY nice having Dan around now that tax season is over. This is perfect time for the binky weaning as there are two of us to listen to the non-stop talk that occurs! Tomorrow on the docket...getting the van fixed. Somewhere in the power steering there is an issue. I cannot tell you how difficult it is to turn a van at low speed without power steering, man I'm a wuss!!!
