Who’s kid is/has been or was sick? Raise your hand (insert hand raised emoji here). Not just one kid was but all three. Maddie has been complaining every now and then about her ear for about 2 or 3 weeks now. I just figured it was sinus pressure because it would go away and she would be fine the next day. JP has been waking up in the middle of the night the past couple of weeks, very whiney and not eating. That is not him AT.ALL. Jocelynn has just had the normal yucky stuff that goes along with a sinus infection for the past couple of weeks. I ended up taking them all to the doctor last Friday, deciding this after Maddie woke up for the day that morning at 3 am, and the doctor confirmed what I already knew. EAR INFECTIONS.
Double ear infection for bubba and Maddie. Doc put all three on antibiotics. He went ahead and gave Joc antibiotics too since she had been fighting the sinus infection for more than 7 days. I cant tell you how many times I asked JP is his ears hurt and he replied “No mom, they don’t hurt! I don’t want you to take me to the doctor!” That was my first clue right there, I told the doctor what he said and when he looked in JP’s ears he told us “I don’t know if he was trying to avoid this but these little ears are bad!” My little baby just didn’t want to go to the doctor. Funny the things they learn at such a young age. I hated going to the doctor when I was younger too but love going now when I am sick and always ask for a shot instead of medicine. It’s also funny how the things you were scared of when you were young turn out to be the things you are most brave at when an adult.
They are all starting to feel much better but we had to upgrade JP to a stronger antibiotic. If that doesn’t help him we have to take him to an ENT. Hoping it doesn’t come to that but will do anything need be for him to get relief.
Now, Whats this I speak of remodel? Well, maybe not remodeling but working really hard switching things around in our house. I have painted the den, kitchen, JP’s new room, the girls new room and plan to paint the rest of the rooms too. The twins old room is now JP’s new big boy fishing room, the old play room is now where Maddie and Jocelynn share a room, and Maddie’s old room will now be the playroom and maybe / my office. We will see how much room is left after getting all the toys in there. Im definitely not near done with finishing touches on their rooms and I kind of ran in to a problem in the girls new room. I underestimated just how big the twins beds were (that the girls will use now since we built Jp’s bed) and how long and skinny the room is where they go. Yeah, I cant figure out a good way to place the beds in there without it looking like they take up the whole room. UGH. When plans go wrong, right? It sucks. The only person I know that is pure genius when it comes to moving furniture around and making it look absolute magnificent is my momma. She is amazing with interior decorating. Mom is coming by today to help me out! Hoping we can figure a way to place the beds and still have room for all the baby dolls and barbies. I woke up at 5 am on Monday morning to finish painting JP’s room and start getting to work on the rest of the house. It was a mess. It was a mess until about 3 that afternoon. By 7:30 that night I ended up with over 13k steps on the fitbit and over 2300 calories burned! I usually do 10k steps a day, or thats my average but just 4k more made me feel good and I am going to try to make that my new daily goal. Anyways, back to house talk. Here are some pictures of everything we have accomplished thus far.
So I didn’t realize how long and narrow this room was until we put these two beds in. I couldn’t figure out a way to put the beds without them taking up all.the.room. I finally figured out a way that will work for now but phew! It almost ruined all my hopes and dreams for the girls room!
Someone is loving her big girl bed and she always seems to amaze me. I mean every single phase that she’s ever been through she has conquered in less than perfect timing. She isn’t even sleeping with a diaper anymore! My little baby is just ready for this big girl stuff!
I still lack bedding for the girls room and trim on JP’s two walls with the two different colors and of course the finishing touches; decor, photos and more! I cant wait to show you what its going to turn out to be!
