What in the world are they doing???? I just couldn't wrap around my head what a 4 & 5 year old could be doing to be saying those words. The wierdest things came to mind, "have they discovered doctor"? "Are they talking about their butts"? I stood there in shock trying to figure it out.
Tinkerbell tells Bug, "My turn"!!!!!!
What in the world???? I slowly sneak over to the highest bunk & peek through the slats & I see...
Tinkerbell putting her finger in Bugs belly button!!! Thank God!!!!!!

Bear is God to my little Bug. Bear is his absolute best friend in the entire world. He lugs that Bear around EVERYWHERE. I have included just some of the pictures that will go in Bear's scrapbook & yes you better believe that Bear will have his own Scrapbook. :)
***Edited to add. Bear has somehow fallen off of the face of the earth. Bug is handling it A LOT better than I thought he would. We have seriously tore our entire house apart looking for him. I miss that Bear. I really expected to be able to put Bear back for Bug's little boy :( **********

ER visit # 1: Bug 2 weeks ago. He had been sick but not sick enough to take to the doctor. Saturday rolls around. We take the kids to a parade & he is just kind of there physically but dragging horribly. After his nap he could not quit crying & saying his mouth hurt. After much negotian I finally got him to open his mouth & low and behold his throat is full of blisters. Diagonois: Strep Throat
ER visit # 2: Tinkerbell on Sunday. She had been sick since Friday with a fever & really sluggish acting. (And remember she is only 20 months old) Me, Tinkerbell & Bug all took a nap in my bed. When we woke up her poor little heart was just racing. It was going to fast I could not get her heartrate. She was beating 3-4 beats a second. I was so scared because she had recently just had pnuemonia & that was the reason the nurses hotline had told us to go. Her heart was beating to fast for her little body. I think the ER kind of down played it a bit. They said it was just because she had a fever. She's a baby. As a parent you take NO chances. Diagnosis: Influenza type B (just the common flu) Treated with an anti viral medicine
****Along comes Monday night & Mr Bug gets out Tinkerbells prescription & somehow gets the cap off. Tinkerbell brings us an empty prescription bottle so we assume that she has chugged it. We call poison control & they said that the medicine is not fatal but it will make her sick. They said not to induce vomiting that it will make her nauseaus & she will vomit on her own. She sleeps all night but Bug is up puking all night. So apparantly he is the one that drank her prescription. Yesterday morning I brought him to work with me. I work on a computer all day & he just wanted to be held so he sat on my lap & took a nap for about an hour & then I took him to daycare. I have exhausted all of my vacation days so I cannot afford to take off unpaid. Hubby took off on Monday to keep Tinkerbell home. My daycare calls about 2 & said that he was still super sick to his stomach & had a 104 degree temp & that his tongue was brown. BROWN???? So I called his peds office & there voicemail picks up AGAIN & it says that they are having a high volume of calls so I need to leave a message & that it may take until the next business day for them to return it so off to ER we go. Mr KU works an hour away so he left work so he could meet us there.
ER visit # 3: Bug. They do the Influenza test on him & check out his tongue. They find out that since he wouldn't drink the tylenol that I had given him about 10am had just sat on his tongue & turned colors. Jeez. His Influenza test came back. Diagnosis: Influenza A which is the Swine Flu so now he is on Tamiflu but I couldn't start him until today because of him chugging it monday night. By the way his peds office called about an hour and a half later.
So now Mr. KU is off for 2 days with 2 kids basically in quarantine.
All I have to say now is that it isn't even November...

Thanks Polka Dot Chair!!!!!

Here is the recipe:
2 chicken breast cut up in chunks
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can of milk
8 oz velveeta
noodles of choice (cooked) (I switch it everytime I make it)
Cook the chicken, once it is done add the can of cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 can of milk & velveeta. Stir until the velveeta is melted & then add the noodles. It really is super yummy. It is sort of like a stroganoff but with that extra hit of velveeta. :)
Then I was lazy the rest of the night. Here I am on our couch with 4 out of our 5 animal children. :)
Duke is the brown Shih Tzu, Oscar is the orange cat, Bailey is the collie & Mollie is in the kids chair. Lily our wierd inside cat was in hiding as usual because the dogs are around.
Go check out The Polka Dot chair blog. I could seriously waste HOURS reading all her posts. :)

Look at how cute those cupcakes are!!!!
Here is a better inspiration picture. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit. I think I am going to do a ruffle top like this but I want thicker straps that I want to criss cross in the back. I am also going to get a 2 embroidered on the bodice.

Here are my directions that I sent out:
I would like to host a toy swap. A toy swap is where everyone brings toys that their kids have outgrown or no longer play with & would like to exchange it for something “new”. I would like for each person to bring 3 gently used items.
For example: I am going to bring a train set that Bug got for his 1st Christmas. Both kids have absolutely LOVED this train but they no longer play with it. It is red & comes with a giraffe & the 2nd car is yellow & it has a monkey in it. I have all the pieces & it is in EXCELLENT used condition. It just needs new batteries. That is going to be 1 of my items.
Items can include a freezer bag full of GI Joe’s of a bag of Mega Blocks, a freezer bag with a Barbie & some clothes in it. Stuff like that. I would also like everyone to bring 1 adult gift. Such as a couple of books, old taste of home magazine’s, or Betty Crocker cookbooks.
All of our kids are not the same age but I would like everyone to benefit from this. We will set everything out so that everyone can see what everyone else brought. Then we will draw #’s to see who gets to go first.
Say there is 10 people that come & everyone brings 4 items. I will have 4 different bowls of #’s. 1-10, 11-20, 21-30 & 31-40 so that everyone has an equal shot of getting at least 1 thing that they really super want. (Bug’s word, lol).
I would also like anyone that wants to clean out their toyroom to bring whatever they would like to get rid of. After everyone has looked through everyone else’s stuff I will take the remaining to Goodwill. I was thinking our Salvation Army or if anyone has any other suggestions let me know.
***Make sure that everything is cleaned up. Also don’t worry about batteries, but please make sure that the toy works.***
Munchies will be served & we can all mingle. I am hoping there will be a HUGE variety of people. Please invite anyone that wants to participate. This could make Christmas A LOT easier on a lot of us!!!!!
Email with ANY & I MEAN ANY questions. Also please email me with an RSVP. I would like somewhat of an idea as to how many will be coming. Let everyone know & get your toy rooms cleaned out!!!!!
