My poor boy had been super super weepy since Tuesday. It’s so unlike him.

Scarlet fever was never on my radar, but here it is. It doesn’t look terrible, but it makes buddha’s skin feel like sandpaper (think 80-120 grit sandpaper). Also, once it runs it’s course, Buddha will shed the skin that was covered. WTF

Pretty sure Buddha thinks the tv is a big iPad.

Strep throat is a bitch. At this point I’d be willing to let someone carve my tonsils out with a butter knife.


Also, doctors won’t remove tonsils from adults, will they? I also seem to have the immune system of a fetus.

Why isn’t urgent care open on Easter?!?!

After spending the first 400 days of her life in foster care, sweet Whisper went to her forever family last night. So bittersweet.  She’ll be missed.

Buddha is napping and I’m going through my clothes. As of Thursday, I’m officially down 56lbs and well, I now have a lot of things that are way too big. I’ve also found that I had a slight tank top problem.

Following doctor’s orders and giving Buddha tv time to stimulate his vision.  

We are not a tv family. Don’t get me wrong, I love tv, but that’s one of the places I cut corners. The tv is from college (its been in storage for the last few years), cable and satellite are too expensive, and I have a converter box and antenna, but they don’t work so well. Plus, there isn’t much time to watch tv. 

Thank goodness for cheap, secondhand DVDs.

Certain Proof: A Question of Worth - YouTube

Today during PD at work, we watched this documentary. It follows three children with Cerebral Palsy and some of the challenges they face. One of the biggest challenges being that most people don’t presume competence.

I could feel the lump in my throat within five minutes of the documentary starting. My immediate thought was of Buddha. No, he doesn’t have a diagnosis of CP, but he is so similar to one of the kids in the film. Sometimes I think people look at him and just don’t bother doing things with him because “he doesn’t know.” Well, I think he does know.

For the first 20 mins or so of the film, I had to blink away the tears. And finally, it was too much…I walked out. All I saw in that film was Buddha and I couldn’t handle it.
