I thought it'd be fun to document a Summer Saturday with our little family of 5.
Our weekend started off with a trip to the ER, because that's just how we do things around here. Lucas has been sick all week with a cold but then Friday night he woke up screaming about his ear. Lucas has had many many ear infections but he never really makes a fuss about them. We couldn't get him to calm down and we were unable to get any pain reliever into him. Adam suggested a trip to the ER, but I didn't want to make yet another trip there. After a while it became obvious that Lucas wasn't going to calm down. So off I went. The nurse showed me how to pinch his mouth and plug his nose to get the motrin into him, but he spit most of it out onto her. A couple hours later we were back home with antibiotics, and in bed by midnight.
The next morning Jenna got up at 4:30 and wouldn't go back to sleep when I nursed and rocked her. I took her downstairs and she eventually dozed off next to me in our guest bed. A couple hours later Ryan joined us.
