friday update

The MOG is out of commission today, with a stomach ailment. I believe it is part post-fasting stomach, part icky-virus, and part messed-up intestines (medical terms), and part gender. Is that to say all males are weenies? Of course not. Just most males, when it comes to being sick.

I don't mean to sound uncompassionate. He is genuinely sick, not faking or whining or being a weenie. I am just a terrible, terrible nurse. I'm kinda of the "take a couple aspirins and sleep it off" camp. I did bring him Rolaids on multiple occasions, but they offered little relief. So there you go.

In other news, R2 is doing well at school. He used scissors for the first time yesterday. They have special loop scissors that are easier for special guys to handle, and he cut some construction paper and helped glue it to a pumpkin drawing. Very cute. He is also getting more secure about climbing up in the schoolbus, and does not need us to hold his hand, thank you very much. On his note home yesterday, it said he "had a ball in music class"... I wish I could see what happens up there, but getting the notes home is nice.
Bean update: doing her best to walk everywhere. She drags boxes and hampers around the house as her walking aids. This adorable outfit was a gift from Sharon Schluter, and it fits perfectly! Somebody let her know about this picture!


and that other guy really does not want to sleep in his own bed... they tend to end up in the same square foot of sleeping space every night...



One of the hard things about R2's special needs was his distance from other kids, especially his siblings. We still want friendship to become a value for him, but in the meantime, it does my heart good that the two littlest ones are good friends. Happy weekend, time for me to take a nap!

  1. Those pictures of the two of them crammed in the same bed crack me up. I guess it saves space?

  2. Great pictures! Looks like Brynn's bed has all four sides on it. Is Toby climbing over the rail and into her bed?

  9. poor Richy. hope it's not the same ague (sp) that Brian had before we went to Thailand! he had been fasting and broke the fast too quickly and his insides were totally in shock and didn't want to work. he was very ill.

    give the man some milk of magnesia! and some hot teas laced with caster oil!

  11. Jess, judging by your sample size of "one" in stating that most men are weenies when sick is hardly scientific; regardless of the overwhelming (seemingly) conclusive evidence that you've collected in your study.

  12. are you saying to put whole cloves of garlic in your tea?

    jess must be busy with her sick husband

    hopefully no one else is ill up there

  15. bah! i go to work sick, most of the time. i once went to work doing extreme physical labor with a trash can next to me. the 3rd time i had to violently use it i was told to go home. it was grossing people out. i once walked 18 miles to work with a torn ligament in my knee. flu.. go to work and sweat it out. works great. food poisoning causing dry heaves due to tons of vomiting, i drink a giant glass of ice water, its still cold when it comes up. toothache pain preventing sleep on the third day with no sleep at work i went to my car and slept. if i stay home sick its usually cause i have a new video game. but now that i have a wife to baby me, i let her. marriage has made me weak... or just a sucker for some extra attention.
