Who needs an epidemiologist?

Here's the story of me - a well-educated (but broke) woman trying to raise two wee boys, a husband, be Martha Stewart, Ty Pennington, and Rachel Ray all rolled into one, while desparately seeking a career in epidemiology (which is NOT the study of the skin).

Mommy Mover - Part Two

Mommy Mover II drove into our lives last Saturday. We are enjoying it immensely. Well, let me redefine "we" for you - it means the kids and I are enjoying the new car. Jonathan-not so much. This is nothing that new - he did not really like my van either, but I think the station wagon crossed the line for him. I, on the other hand, probably like it a little too much. I have ALWAYS wanted this car.

In other news, we are all glad that July is OVER! In addition to my MVA, someone has been sick since July 4th weekend. We have all taken turns with me most recently having pink eye, strep throat and two ear infections! We have covered the spectrum this month from the barfing bug to the ENT problems - I thought this was SUMMER?!?

August, on the other hand, is looking pretty good so far. Last night, Daddy went out for Guys Night Out! (You would never believe it, but one of the guys in our new Sunday School class organizes Guys Night Out. Granted they do totally dorky things, but I guess they enjoy it.) While the Dad was out, I invited over a couple of friends and we rented the kids a video. They had a great time, but I really made a poor video choice. I got Tarzan. When you have a child like Jon Thomas - this is not advisable. This morning, there was some unusual noise in his room. I went in to find him making Tarzan's signature noise, beating his chest, and "swinging" on the cords of his blinds. Since then Jonathan has taken him outside and let him climb up a tree via the ladder and swing off using a rope. Don't be alarmed, I've reserved us a room at the Pediatric ER. But I may need a couple of you to vouch for us when Social Services comes to visit! TARZAN!
