Drew still had a lingering cough this week and he was complaining that his ear hurt when he would get water in it during his bath/shower. I decided to call the doctor's office and they had me start another antibiotic that the doctor had already prescribed "in case". They felt that the ear infection was probably not cleared up which was causing the cough and the ear pain. He seems to be doing better and I hope this is the end of it! Ear infections are not new to Drew, but that is why we got tubes???!!!! Anyway, he goes to the ENT in April, so hopefully we will be clear until then and we can then decide to have the tube removed or let it just fall out on its own.
A couple of cute items: Drew said to me the other day, "Mom (yes, it is always Mom), I can't wait until I get older. When I get older I am going to drink beer and touch breakable stuff". Ha!
I also heard he and Kate playing at their play kitchen the other day. He was playing the child and she was the mommy. He said to Kate (aka mom), "Come on Mom, I don't want to eat that". Kate responds "you cannot get up until you eat your apples, honey". At least they are listening!
I am signing Kate up for preschool tomorrow! I can't believe I am signing up my baby for school. Time sure flies when you're having fun!
I'm not really much into bribing your kids to do things, but I made an exception and told them they could have icees and popcorn if they took good naps this particular day. Drew actually slept-shocker! Steve was out of town, so I needed the break!
Drew thought he had died and gone to heaven when the neighbor boy, Holden, played street hockey with Drew the other day. Holden's dad is the minor league hockey coach, so Holden has all the gear and is really good on his roller blades. Drew of course was asking me why he didn't have any roller blades yet. Every time a car would come down the street, Drew would go to the inside of the net to be safe!
We played and made a craft at The Learning Store over the weekend.
Finger painting-Drew goes all in and Kate does one delicate finger at a time...
Picnic in January! Love it!
Drew getting some good swings in. He wants to play every single sport...this week alone, we played golf, la crosse, football, soccer, hockey, and basketball. He cannot wait for soccer to start back up in the spring! Neither can Mom! :)
