Straight and Curly

No. 5 has been asking for months to have her hair straight. Today I took her in for a trim and decided to have them blow it out and using a flat iron on it so she could have her wish. Now she wants it like this for ever. She's not even 4! I am in so much trouble.

Makes My Heart Melt

Monday I came home from dropping the middle three kids at school to find a message from my oldest carefully written into the morning dew on the grass. Hi. That's all it said. But, ahhhhh. That's the nutty kid I love.

(sorry no picture, no camera in the car, but I did have a crabby toddler - nuff said)

Why is it that the child who hasn't been able to stop coughing since late yesterday afternoon (I mean really couldn't stop, neither of us slept), who I kept home from school so that her coughing would not be a distraction, now hasn't coughed for over an hour.

And the child that woke up this morning with a cough but I sent to school because she wasn't nearly as bad off as the other, is probably coughing non-stop and her teacher is probably wondering why I let her go to school.

And I've made dr's appts for both and I called in sick to work so I could take them to the doctor, but now I'm second guessing whether or not the one really needs the doctor, but if I don't take her the coughing will start again this afternoon, but if I do the doctor will look at me like I'm crazy.

I just cannot win.
