What I Learned This Week

The past two weeks have been filled to the brim, with a quieter weekend this past one. Between Boo having the stomach bug, Hubby and I passing a nasty cold bug back and forth and Hunter ROCKING his bowling tournament there has been little time. BUT, lots to learn!

- When your son is bowling in a tournament, you will need to hide behind your husband when said son gets 4 strikes in a row. Holding your breathe is not enough.

- Having a cold that will knock you over is not fun, but having it at the same time as your husband makes for some hilarious conversations!

Me: honey...honey..HONEY
H: What?
Me: Can you get this for me?
H : What?
H: mumble mumble mumble
H: mumble mumble mumble
H: Here you go shorty

Hilarious I tell you! Hearing is so overrated!

- It is possible for a child that weighs a total of 58 pounds to throw up 22 time in 8 hours...important information...or just plain nasty which ever way you want to look at it.

- When said child does this, a trip to the local Children's Hospital will be in order and they will take ONE look at your child and bring you back right away.

- An IV is NOT a needle once it is in your hand, but a straw that your "veins drink from"

- Child Life Specialist are FABULOUS!

- Pandora is the best thing ever...EVER

- The chance of major snow is fun, but could cause some MAJOR problems over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day...planning for the possibilities makes my head hurt.

- Even though I said I would wrap presents last night, it didn't happen. And I am not surprised.

- When your dog eats half a tray of hand-made truffles your head might explode because you have to remake them for co-workers who will LOVE them!

- Trying to figure out why my blog layout is all jacked up is driving me nuts.

I love Pandora too. Can't imagine my work day without it. Now it's on my BlackBerry! :) Hope your household is better. YUCK

I love the Child Life specialists. They made our one surgery (ear tubes) at CHC incredibly easy. I recommend to everyone I now that if their kid has to have a procedure done, they MUST go there. Heck, if they'd let me, I'd go there.

This snow, at Christmas, majorly messing with me as well. At least we got the new TV and Wii installed, may not have any games for it though...

Pandora is pretty cool! The blog layout is a weird thing. I wish I knew more about HTML code and stuff. *sigh*

Oh my - it has been a crazy week for you. Hoping you are feeling better and that things return to normal soon.
Merry Christmas!

Hope you will all be recovered in time for Christmas - so you can hear each other at least!

We don't have Child Life Specialists here, but wish we did - even if I am married to a pediatrician!

Merry Christmas to you and yours from N Ireland.

The conversation between you and your husband made me laugh. Because I am short too and that sounds like something my husband would say.

Wishing you all good health and a merry Christmas.

Four strikes in a row. WOWEE!!

But this?

"When your dog eats half a tray of hand-made truffles your head might explode because you have to remake them for co-workers who will LOVE them!"

Oh noes! I'd have sat down and cried. Did you remake them?
