The baby's asthma/allergies have been acting up and she sounds a bit like darth vader with a slight cough. We've given her a couple breathing treatments which seem to help, but she is still obviously unhappy about not feeling great. I'm thinking the major drought and 100 degree weather are not helping the cause.
My oldest daughter face planted on the sidewalk on the first day of swimming lessons. It was so bad that a couple guys in the parking lot ran over. So, she has a huge bruise on her hip and scabs all over her knee and ankle. Then on the second day of swimming lessons as she was preparing to jump into the pool from the side (into the arms of her waiting instructor), she got scared and slipped a bit so her shins hit the side of the pool before she actually fell in the water. Add a couple mosquito bites that she can't stop itching and her legs are a bloody, scabby mess. I hope I can convince her to wear tights to her Uncle's wedding in July.
Besides a few major temper tantrums due to extreme tiredness, my son hasn't had any major dilemmas yet. Yet. I'm sure some catastrophe is slowing heading our direction, but for the time being I'm satisfied with 2/3 of my children having bad days :)
And, so, our summer begins!
