He STILL loves to hold his little sister! (Don't mind the missing sock, she REFUSES to keep it on)
AAAAHHH Sharing Siblings...
Heard earlier yesterday at my house "Mom I love sharing with Hopey!" "That's nice buddy." I replied...I had no idea how this sharing with Hope would play out later...
So, my younger kiddos are battling some kind of upper respiratory/coughy/ear infection kind of thing (I am certain came from the McDonald's Playland Howard insisted on, that skeeves me out! ahem...) and when I called the doctor yesterday he asked me to take Hope's temperature, you know, the not oral, not under the armpit kind of way? So anyhow...I went ahead with one of those tasks no parent ever wants to do but eventually must just do, once I got the reading, I undressed her and got her into the tub.
Benjamin then enters two minutes later telling me that he "doesn't feel well". I told him to go lie on the couch and I would take care of him as soon as I got Hope out of the tub and dressed. Then he says, "Mom, I am pretty sure I have a fever" as I hear the beep, beep, beep. My eyes widen and my heart sinks. I turned toward him and YES ladies and gentlemen he had Hope's thermometer in his MOUTH!
UGH! I keep a "special" thermometer in the drawer of the changing table and have put a sticker on it so we know what "kind" of thermometer that one is, but apparently Ben did not get that memo. He is sick today...instead of hand, foot and mouth, perhaps he has hand, hiney and mouth? :) lol
