Not Wordless Wednesday

I realized on Tuesday morning that I hadn't put away the laundry that I folded on Saturday morning. I also had a ton of diapers that needed to be washed and the hardwood floors are dirty dirty. Ughh.

In my defense,
  • Ellie has needed me...a lot.
  • Big Daddy has only been at home about 6 hours each night to sleep.
  • Maggie was supposed to have a picnic at a local lake on Monday, but it was rained out and I was "party parent" and decided to leave Ellie with my mom, take Maggie to school late and then hang out for the end of the year class party.
  • Tuesday, I spent the morning holding the sick baby (starting at around 5am) and had to take her to the doctor.
  • Today, Maggie has a "Preschool Luau" (weather permitting) and of course, I need to be present for that because it is the last day of preschool.
Ellie's pediatrician gave her a thorough exam and said her ears were clear and her throat was red. He did a strep test which came back negative, so he checked her white cell count. Long story short, she has a virus. He said to continue treating the fever and he also gave me a prescription for an antibiotic since her nose has started running. We discussed her past ear infections (2) and since they both occurred during a cold he thought that the antibiotic may prevent us from returning if her runny nose turns into something more and then turns into an ear infection. We both liked the new pediatrician and we found out that he was my brother-in-law's childhood doctor!

Anyway...I'll share a few pictures from our rainy Sunday at the Bog Gardens because that's the most excitement we've had lately.

Maggie loved the gardens, but refused to smile for the camera. All the girls in her preschool class are going through this phase too.

Ellie was more than happy for me to wear her in the sling. She loved watching all of the ducks swim around.

Ellie enjoyed looking at the waterfall.

Maggie carried her umbrella the entire time. After it stopped raining she used it as a parasol because she said the sun was just "so very bright". It wasn't.

Maggie was sad because according to the signs at the bog you are not supposed to feed the Canadian geese. They can produce over a pound of feces a day and scare away other wildlife. Who knew!?

Disney can't get here soon enough, can it? Glad you liked the new pediatrician and hopefully Ellie will start feeling better soon!!

Thanks for the tidbit on the geese...never knew that!! Think I'll store that information away for my Jeopardy appearance.
