My daily prayer...

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6

Holiday time...and question about sick kids

Every year I get sad around this time of the year. I always did. Even before I was married...before we TTC and IUI and our Little Joe. I am not sure why. But this year is different...I am getting so excited to see Julian with the lights and the paper...what a joy it is going to be!

So I hate crowds. And now that the weather is changing...I don't want to take him out to many places because of germs. Now I am not going to be one of those mothers who doesn't want her kid to sick, but at 3 months...come on...I DON"T want him to be sick yet! Is that so wrong? I don't want to do play groups either yet...oh boy here I go...sounding like one of those mom's! So...if you are a reader of this blog or a lurker...please post and let me know the earliest it was that your child got sick. I just want him to be healthy but I know that he needs to get sick to be healthy...does that make sense?

Well...I did the background check for the new job...just waiting for it to come back and then I should be offered the job! keep your fingers crossed and prayers coming our way. Hugs!

I have to tell you it doesn't get better. In fact, I think I am worse. As soon as he gets home from school I start in with the reminders about washing hands. We went to a fast food restaurant the other day to eat and I couldn't get passed how filthy the seats and walls were. Of course we have already taught him the tricks to using a public bathroom! I have become a germ-a-phobe!
Keep posting. I love to read your blog. I just don't always have something to say in return.

Aidan started daycare at 3 months old on a Wednesday. By Friday he had his 1st cold :(

He's had numerous colds since then, but thankfully nothing serious. On the bright side, I hear being exposed to germs now will boost his immune system. I hope by the time he goes to school, he won't have so many colds.
