The Lion Sleeps Tonight…or "ebay is out to get me…"

So, you’ve heard of the song, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”, right? Well, not in this house. This lion was up before five am. And naturally…so was Mama. I think he might have a lil’ upset tummy. VERY low fever. Still, plenty of energy. Okay, now remember his Playmobil Castle? (If not, click the link. Get…

Sicko Update: We’re getting better, I hope. After a big spike in temp and a rough night, he’s down to 100 – lowest since Monday – and in a great mood. Eating and drinking more, too. We’ll stay in today just in case, but we’re hoping the worst is over! So, as you can imagine,…

So…did you "Go Green" yesterday?

We did…despite a sick tummy and 102 fever. We started the day off with Green Shamrock Pancakes… (Well, the batter was green,honest!)We cut out Paper Shamrocks, and danced a spontaneous jig or two… (The Irish Music was playing ALOT yesterday!)

Somebody stole your heart? Maybe it’s hanging on our wall.

Liam’s still sick, with a fever that fluctuates between 99 and 102. Not tugging at his ears, not complaining at all. His appetite is a bit smaller, but aside from the fever, cough and snuffles, he’s acting pretty normal. I’ll call the nurse tomorrow if he wakes up feverish again, but I think it’s just…

Sick Day

Liam is a bit under the weather. This past weekend, he had the croupy cough at night (which meant notsomuch sleep for anyone), and now that we’re over that…he’s stuffy and started with a low-grade fever last night. No fun for the Bugman. It’s cold and gray out, and we may have snow tonight…just a…
