Let's dance, put on your red shoes and dance the blues

Karl is freaking hilarious when he dances. He's totally into it right now and will dance at any music he hears. I love it.

He does this little half knee bend and dances around with side steps and with his arms flailing. I guess dance is just in his bones like they are with most kids - just dancing for the pure baby fun of it.

Total Recall

Allison is sick now with a fever and puking episodes. I ran out of Motrin so I sent daddy to the store to get more. He came home with the generic versions after the pharmacist told him all about the motrin and Tylenol recalls.

I looked it up online and found that 4 of the 5 bottles I have at home are part of the recall. I was able to request replacements for all of my bottles too. So that's cool of them.

I wonder if the puking was brought on by the medication I gave the kids for their high fevers. I gave both kids recalled products. Scary.

Here is to the medications being thrown away.

Karl is sick. Yesterday, he puked 4 times. Twice on me. Once on the hubby. And once in my car. The one in the car seat was the worst. Not because of the aspect of cleaning it, but because I couldn't help the poor little boy. He just sat there, spewing out the contents of his belly, puking on himself. And he was obviously scared to death. Little babies just don't know what is going on when they puke and it scares them. The look of terror on his face while I was driving just broke my heart. I pulled over immediately, but by then he was done. It broke my heart not to be there for my boy, even though I was only 2 feet away from him.

Puking aside, he had a fever, runny nose, loss of appetite and bloody pus dripping out of his right ear. I got in with the doctor to get some antibiotics for his ear infection. Thank god he has tubes or that blood/pus would be killer pushing on his little eardrum. He's on the mend though, as no fever or puking today. And less snuggling time for mommy. Yesterday, all he wanted was me. Today, he was up and about - running around everywhere. But still being cranky, which is understandable.

Ella had a school play today in which she sang along with her class. One song was also done in sign language, which was really cool. In fact, this isn't the first time they do sign language along with singing. I'm so proud of her!

Allison has been a little terror lately. She is ~fine~ all day with me, but the moment Ella gets home, she acts like a little devil. I don't know why she's acting like she is. I guess it's due to having to share my attention. Whatever it is, it's really grinding on my nerves. I'm literally at a loss as of what to do. I'm dealing with it day by day, but I need to focus on a long term solution. I feel like I'm drowning in the daily drama when the big picture is what should be looked at.
