I've got hand, foot, and mouth disease!
: I'm assuming I've got it from Wyatt, who must be carrying it from someone at preschool, but he's asymptomatic, thank goodness cause I wouldn't wish these little puss filled blisters on anyone!
we also have been exposed to lice.
gosh I wish I could be a SAHM sometimess!!
in other, happier, news -- dh and I have been talking about creating rituals for our family, especially in regards to celebrations, and we decided that one that we accidentally started on wyatt's birthday last year is one we will continue: on wyatt's birthday we'll go find our christmas/yule tree, bake cookies and decorate them and the tree. then have his birthday cake and open a present or two -- as we get more financially stable, it is our goal to travel as a family on christmas/new years (our wedding anniversary is in there real close, too) so our intention is to have his birthday presents be related to our family trip (new swimming suit if we go to the beach; book on animals if we're heading to a special zoo, etc.)
we want to invite family (and, as wyatt gets older, his friends) to this pre-holiday birthday decorating bash, and that will help us reserve christmas and new years just for us as a family.
this year, we are gong to TRY to be able to afford a weekend trip to a cabin in northeast iowa, about a 5 hour drive, for our 10TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! that will be our holiday trip (I say TRY to afford, because we had a wall/window issue with rot and termites that has dried up our "trip" savings account
so, now that we've decided about the celebration, and invited my mom and step-dad down for it, I'm really looking forward to wyatt's birthday!
