Within 1 minute I already had the bath going and Ben out of Bed half undressed, ready to put him in the tub, while my hubby was still getting his wits about him, trying to focus on the situation. (That is why us ladies are mommies) reaction time may be a little quicker.
Tried to get him in the bath; he wasn't having it, so...a cool cloth around his neck, and on his head had to do..
Soon he had calmed down, and layed back in his bed quietly, while I tried to get tylenol liquid down him. He just layed there like a baby bird letting me put it in his mouth. ( I knew he was in bad shape, because it's usually a wrestling match only to get a few drops down his throat, and the rest of it all over him and I both, and any other thing or person close by.)
Rubbing his forhead for a short time, he was sound asleep, and slept for the next 3 hours. I on the other hand could not fall back to sleep, still worrying about his condition. He finally woke up around 8am stood up in bed, and was very chatty and all smiles. What the heck....I will never understand the illnesses children endure...it totally boggles my mind. (BIG YAWN...)

1. My husband is the cookiest man I know, and he really floors me sometimes, with the things that come out of his mouth.
2. Our cats still rule the roost even after Ben was born; now the cats have him scooting over in his bed to make room for them.
3. I can never let Ben go to bed with pajamas that don't match.(My husband just pulls the first thing out, top and bottom, they don't have to go togather, me I have to make it right, is that obsessive, Yep I know, can't help it.)
4. We all love to put peanutbutter on pieces of chocolate, instead of buying a reese's peanutbutter cup(just not the same.)
5. I now cannot fall asleep without my son snuggling with me at least for a little while. ( he gives me big hugs, and pats me on the back, ending with a huge kiss) it melts me. And is the greatest ending to the day....
6. My husband loves to shop more than me. (seriously)

I know that every parent has this problem with their little one's at one time or another, but dear god, by the end of the day, that one last word (along with the whine) goes thru me, and I want to hit the ceiling, and grab the closest alcoholic beverage, and consume it ALLLLL...because that will help right. Just drowning out the problem instead of resolving it.
I have tried the logic with him like.. Ben, if you whine it to me I cannot understand you. Or..Ben I will not listen to you when your whining. Ahh, logic and a 2 year old, nope not happpening as of yet. Oh how I do love my little guy, but I'm going Crazy.
They say the 3's are better, "Is that a nice way of saying just more challenging???
The Irony of all this....is that I could feel myself whining as I was telling you all my problems. Ugggg!!!
Such is life....Happy HUMP Day

I guess after going to the grocery store, unloading the sacks, unpacking the contents of millions of plastic bags, the last thing I want to do is cook the stuff. So..hubby has said he will do the shopping and unload and unpack if I keep up the cooking duty. May seem like a trivial trade; but I actually have been quite into it, and am starting to come around on the cooking thing. Emeril would still be the ultimate trade, but I have to live within my means....

Mom and Dad were watching TV when
Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting late.
I think I'll go to bed."
So she went to the kitchen to make
sandwiches for the next day's lunches,
Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took
meat out of the freezer for supper
the following evening,
She filled the sugar container, put
spoons and bowls on the table and
started the coffee pot for brewing
the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes in
the dryer, put a load of clothes into
the washer, ironed a shirt and
secured a loose button.
She picked up the game pieces left
on the table, put the phone back on
the charger and put the telephone
book into the drawer.
She watered the plants,
she yawned and stretched and
headed for the bedroom.
She stopped by the desk and
wrote a note to the teacher,
counted out some cash for the
field trip, and pulled a text book
out from hiding under the chair.
She signed a birthday card for a
friend, addressed and stamped the
envelope and wrote a quick note
for the grocery store
She put both near her purse.
Mom then washed her face with
3 in 1 cleanser, put on her night
solution & age fighting moisturizer,
brushed and flossed her teeth and
filed her nails.
Dad called out, "I thought you were going to
"I'm on my way," she said.
She put some water into the dog's
dish and put the cat outside, then
made sure the doors were locked
and the patio light was on.
She looked in on each of the kids and
turned out their bedside lamps and
TV's, hung up a shirt, threw some
dirty socks into the hamper, and
had a brief conversation with the
one up still doing homework.
She laid out clothing for the next day,
straightened up the shoe rack.
She added three things to her 6
most important things to do list.
She said her prayers, and visualized
the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the
TV and announced to no one in
particular. "I'm going to bed.">
And he did...without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here?
Wonder why women live longer...?
'CAUSE THEY ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL......
(and they can't die because they still have things to do)
Send this to five phenomenal women today...
they'll love you for it!
Then: GO TO BED
