a friday brain dump.

My child is sick again y'all. Again. I can't even explain to y'all the levels of frustration and tiredness running rampant in this house right now. We ended up back at the doc again a few weeks ago because her ears had so much drainage coming out that it freaked us out. Not to mention crusty eyes again. And wouldn't you know; she has another bleeping ear infection. Not two months after getting tubes.

Add to that the cough that won't quit and it is never ending. She can't get well.

I swear it's all allergy related, but she's also showing lots of asthma type symptoms (it gets aggravated by exercise and such). I just feel so bad because we have yet to find a medication that even touches her cough. Y'all... it's awful on her.

So we went back to the doc yesterday and ended up leaving with a few new medications. Fingers crossed, something works. The girl needs a break.

In less than two weeks, BG is turning two. I cannot even wrap my head around that. Next week, the blog will be all about her (so different from normal huh?!). My posts will be all toddler related and who she is at almost two years old. Insane.

For her birthday, her Dad and I are taking her down to Atlanta to see the aquarium. She is going to love it. Last time we went, she was only 13 months old so she didn't really get it. She also couldn't walk. Man... things are way different. Question for those of y'all who have been; we're planning on making a day out of it and doing the shows and stuff. Should we just plan to eat there, or sneak out for a few hours for a quick lunch and some fresh air?

I basically have nothing done for her party. This time last year I was basically done. I think I'm in denial this is even happening....

Mr. P and I are headed to this marriage conference thingy this weekend that he bought us tickets for (we are fine). Unfortunately our child care issues kind of got messed up leaving us with a toddler with nowhere to go. Thank goodness for Tiffany (or "TT" as BG calls her). She has stepped up and is taking care of the toddler for me. Fingers crossed BG doesn't scare her away...

I have about seven packages that currently need to be mailed but I have such an aversion to the post office. Guess I'll be hanging out there tomorrow along with the rest of society. Ga-ross.

That's all I've got.

I haven't eaten at the aquarium so I can't attest to that part, but there is a Children's Museum that's right across the way from the Aquarium that I've heard is fun and not too expensive on admission. I haven't taken my girls yet, but I have a friend who went and really enjoyed the Museum with her daughter...and they did it as "part 2" of their day at the aquarium... might be something to check out!

I'm sure y'all are going to have a blast! My girls are almost 4 and almost 2 and we're planning on them going this year (the oldest went when she was around 18 months so she doesn't really remember it!)

I just took my son to his doctor of allergies for a nose spray and eye drops to go with his meds. He has had a dripping nose and eyes for weeks.

I hate the post office as well! Get well little Ella! We are having a birthday party for Sarah today!

Maybe your daughter is allergic to the dog?. Dogs are also carriers of germs and if children are allowed to kiss them then infections are easily spread.

I hate the post office too...I always go after hours and use the automated machine.

I hope BG will like the aquarium! There is a playground area across the street in Centennial Olympic Park if she needs to get out and run around a bit.
