A Day With My Little Man

I know it seems like my days are always filled with a lot of...what is a good word...well for lack of a better word....Medical Drama. But I thought it might be fun to show you a little NOT so medical drama.
My sweet Cole has been sick with a cold that seem like it is going to last forever. He tells Emily daily that she gave it to him and thinking back to this I would say he is right.
Now before I show you some cute pictures I have to explain a little something..ha. Cole has a issue with toilet paper. He wipes his nose a million times a day...but will not let anyone help him...so you are not allowed to say...OMG she needs to wash his face...oh and you are not allowed to say..she needs to wash that paint off his arms. NOT allowed to say it or think it. And yes I will KNOW if ya think it. Deal? Deal..okay now we can move on.
So what does a mom who is feeling like she wants to crawl in bed and never get out do with a 4 year old who is very grumpy and sick and will not let me wipe is nose. She drugs him up...I mean she gives him cold meds and she buys as much soup and Gatorade as she can.
Now what does a cute as heck 4 year old do with this soup..who has been stuck in the house with his mommy for what seems like weeks?
Notice in the last picture he is really upset that they fell..and so he was done.
So see..we do just some normal everyday wonderful fun family things here also.
But....today is a BIG medical day for Philip so I better get myself up and moving...

Hey there!
I just noticed your pic pop up at my blog... so I'm very happy to "meet" you. I look forward to getting to know you better.

I also noticed your quote in your header by Willa Cather, who is one of my favorite authors! See, we're on the same page already. ;)

I look forward to reading about Philip's journey... I WILL be back, but I'll warn you that I'm spotty with my blog reading because, well, I TRY to be disciplined, at least. I have my moments. And I could go nuts with blog reading if I wanted to!

I'll add you to my google reader, though so I won't miss anything, even if I don't make it over here to comment every time.

Have a great day!

I love gatorade and soup when I'm sick, specifically orange gatorade. I hope he gets to feeling better.

Stacking soup cans. Pretty neat. Here we went out and bought all these nice blocks at wal-mart for stacking and building and I could have just giving the kids soup cans. :)

It was SO WONDERFUL to talk yesterday. We'll have to do that more often.

Cole is so cute, Amy! Building a tower out of soup cans! That is such a bummer to have them topple over...I think I'd quit, too! Hope he's on the mend soon!

Wishing you the best as you approach the next phase of Philip's surgeries. Keeping you close in my prayers. Please let us know the plan! Take good care, sweet friend! Sending you much love and blessings! You do have a wonderful family!

Hugs to you today! And prayers for Phillip!

Those soup cans would be falling on MY FOOT!

I've done the loading them up with the medicine so I can have some quiet!

Poor little fellow. Everyone who has been sick here keeps it for weeks. It just will not go away. You have to wear it out if it doesn't wear you out first.

You just became my 200th follower. Yeaaaay!

You Phillip and all of your family are so in my prayers. I have noticed that many of my prayer soldiers are already commenting here so I would like to post about Phillip to the rest of them if that is ok with you. I can also post a prayer request on my social blog that i write and edit for (Sited and Blogged).

Love and Prayers,
