So the gap in posts is related to my D's double ear infection and vomiting spells. But is the vomit related to the ear infection, you ask? No sir. The vomit is the result of gagging on the antibiotics. The poor little nugget has been congested since Ethiopia. Remember? I thought it was a cold or teething. But this week the congestion turned into a wicked cough, and so I took him to the dr and voila, we have both ears infected.
Now I have loads of experience with ear infections. An ongoing problem with R from birth to 2 years old. But vomit? not so much. Seems like nearly every friend of mine has a 'vomit child.' that is, a child prone to vomit. And I was SO close to dodging this privilege--ah-hem--horror.
I FINALLY have been able to get him to take his antibiotics (after an insane amount of effort and many ill-attempts) by doing this: 4 oz water, 2 oz apple juice in a bottle, mix it with formula and antibiotics. I know . . . I'm such a bad mamma to give my 6 month old apple juice--but he NEEDS to get better.
That said, anyone been watching the DNC? First the Olympics, now the DNC. And soon, the OFFICE and HEROES. This election is very interesting to me--many concerns in the world today. Economy. Energy. Iraq. Islamic extremism. Supreme Court justices up for nomination. just to name a few. And then today, McCain announced Sarah Palin as his running mate, such a brow-raising, exciting, risky choice. Hmmm. So what do you all think of a female Vice President?
Those who know us well know that public policy is one of C's passions. And while I don't know nearly as much as C does, it does help to have an informed, passionate husband to keep me engaged and thinking . . .
