So Brian started this mess (I'm going to blame it on him; sorry, sweetie) almost two weeks ago. Scotty followed his da-da's lead and promptly came down with an ear infection and a perpetually runny nose. And now, I have joined the gang and I'm about 99.9% sure that I have a sinus infection (you know the kind - bright green boogies, the feeling like your head is going to explode, etc). I can't stop blowing my nose, my head is stuffed up, and my whole face is swollen.
I've been fairly grumpy the last few days, and combine this with a self-imposed exile during Scotty's illness means we been out of contact with the outside world for almost 10 days. I'm starting to get a little stir crazy.
And no, Scotty has not stopped trying to bite me. So I am trapped with a vampire child and his runny nose that screams when I attempt to wipe his nose. Even the grape-flavored boogie wipes are not helping.
I think he's getting a little stir crazy too, since in addition to his vampire baby tendencies, he's added 'food fight' to the list. He is refusing to eat. I mean, he will eat it if HE picks it up, but heaven help us if I try to feed him on a spoon. Both hands go to the face, he shakes his head, he cries.
So instead of my taking this space to whine and complain more (I think the above paragraphs suffice), how about some cute pictures? Because colds don't last forever and I need something to think about other than my throbbing sinus headache.
And yes, Scotty looks very grumpy in the pictures because not only is he sick (and I dragged him outside for a little fresh air), but it was also 110 degrees out. Is August over yet??
