Luke Update - And More

Luke is back to his old self again! It didn't take long. That evening (after I had given him the Tylen0l and Ibupr0fen) when we went to W@lMart to get more Tylen0l he acted like a prefect monkey for the pharmacist as I asked him how much of and what I can give my poor kid for his extremely painful dental work he just had done that morning. The guy chuckled and said I shouldn't need to worry about giving him much extra anyway after we talked about age and weight and what not...that's my boy!

This week I am under a lot of stress...I am preparing my daughter to spend her first week away from me since I can remember. :( She is going to be camping with her grandma and grandpa - not far from some of her "cousins". Jozie couldn't be more excited! I couldn't be more freaked out! Though it's not far from here - about an hours drive - I don't know how I'm going to handle not seeing my baby girl everyday for a week! She isn't leaving until Thursday - I think - but I have almost everything packed that she might need - from band aids to sunscreen to - I know, I'm a freak - poison ivy wash. And of course about 7 days worth of clothes. I am a wimp. At least I will have my boy home to bother the living daylights out of me for the time his sister is gone! His friends next door are gone for the week to see their dad and won't be back until sometime next week. He is going to be bored to death! And to think he doesn't want to play with his sister while he has her - hopefully this will give him a reality check on how much his sister does for him and with him while she is around! :)

I'm sure Jozie will have a blast. Maybe you could find something special to do with Luke to make the time together fun & to fly by for both of you! I couldn't imagine being away from one of my kids for that long either, even though at this point it sounds heavenly. I should have put them on a plane to Michigan until we get to Iowa;)

Wow! Yep I would be just like you. Freak out! LOL Luke is going to be miserable without her and unfortunately if the kids are miserable, you are too. Good luck!

I'm glad Luke is feeling better! I bet your house is going to be quiet!
