...Since my last post.....three days after we found out that Isaac had Hand and Mouth, Phoebe woke up from a nap with her eye swollen, took her to the walk-in clinic to find out that she had pink eye! Crazy!! Crazy!!! Crazy!!! And I am not even done yet! Not even a week later, Isaac fell off a table and broke his nub! What in the world! Can we have ONE week of no injuries or illnesses?! AHHHHHHH! I am really losing it!

Seriously, I just posted about how we were starting to get healthy! Probably as I was typing that post out God was chuckling to Himself saying, "Bekah, Bekah, Bekah, when will you learn." Last Thursday we took Isaac into the doctor for a checkup on an ear infection that he had only to discover that he had a DOUBLE ear infection. That isn't too bad, not contagious in any way. He was put on stronger antibiotics, and within a couple of days he was feeling better. Well, then on the night of day five he was acting really grouchy again and ended up throwing up from crying so hard.....fun times. Day six brought on a fever that was hard to bring down along with grouchiness. By day six on the antibiotics fever had left but he was still being a super grouch, and started drooling like CRAZY. Called the doctor back, and she got us in on the same day. We were both thinking the same thing, that his ear infections had come back. Well, the only problem was that his ears looked great. What? Please don't tell me that he is just teething. She looked into his throat and stepped back quickly. "Oh! Does he have any bumps anywhere? Diaper rash or anything?" I replied that he had a little diaper rash that had just started but wasn't bad. What was going through the doctor's mind? Was it Mono? Was it Strep Throat? Why was she asking about rashes? Chicken Pox? "He has Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease." WHAT? What in the world is that? She explained further that he has sores in his mouth (hence the drooling) and the "diaper rash" were the same kind of sores. HFMD is a virus it is very contagious(great!) and very painful. NICE! So, I am pretty confident that my 3 year old will catch this as well. One of these days........we will get better!!

My six year old son is such a sweet boy. But he is also super silly. There has been multiple times wear he will say things and Curtis and I will look at each other in a quizzical way as if to say "Where does he come up with these things?" Seriously, you have no idea, well, at least not yet. I want to capture some of these so I can read them back to him when he gets older. So, here is the first installment of "Benisms" While walking into a freshly cleaned house. "Mom, it smells so shiny in here." While looking at the stream in our back yard. "When you get baptized in the stream all of your sins drown" While snuggling up to me on the couch. "Mom, you are my favorite mom and I love you!." "Ben, thank you, but I am your only mom" "No, you're not, Eve was my first mom." "Yes Ben, I guess you are right, I am glad that I am your favorite." More to come.....
