Sweet Baby Gal "Letter E" Has the flu Along with Letter's C and D

So As most of you know i am so FREAKY when FLU shots open up for business i am the first in line with All 5 of my kids "Letters A,B,C,D and E" oldest to smallest one by one just like an assembly line ROFL we all get the flu shot!

WELL bah humbug 3 weeks ago my sweet angel "Letter C" she is 4 years old she comes home from school and says Mommy i don't Fell So....BLAH yes BLAH and that's where it all began she was so sick for a solid week with none other that ROTAVIRUS omgoawd i was a wreck everyone was quarantined in separate rooms and my mother in law came {you know its bad when i am calling in for back up help lol} and it was just a nightmare! She ran such high fever's and chill's and just omgosh heartbreaking it was! So we spent three days back and fourth to the Dr.s office loads of tests but ultimately there is no cure for this it just had to run its course and what a nasty gross course it was UGH!

So we got that under our belt and she was in the clear to go back to school so she returned to school after missing 10 days and i was so happy for her! WELL she came home it was last Friday and she began to talk and i literally slammed my brakes i dropped off a healthy happy non sick little girl well i picked up a sweet baby gal who sounded like she swallowed a frog YUCK you have got to be kidding me that's all i was thinking! WELL off to the Dr. 1 hour away mind you! He says well she has no strep...and she has had her flu shot...puzzled he looks at me and says well lets just swab her nose any ways for the flu virus and i just laughed no way Dr...i exclaimed i am the queen of antibacterial soap and i don't dare let my children near a shopping cart we are huge hand washers.... there just is no freaking way! WELL guess the joke was on me indeed because she tested positive for the flu strain.... WHAT.... WHAT ....WHAT.... i wanted to whack him LOL seriously ...are you jocking ...this has to be America's funniest home video's RIGHT no wait let me click my heels together "There is no place like home...No place like home! Well he then explains its very contagious WHAT way i am a wreck and in tears for sure i call my husband who is laughing at me for crying LOL and i let him have an ear full! So my Dr. GOD LOVE HIM always the pessimistic one says here is antibiotic for "Letter C,D,and E" the three babies {3,4 and 10 month old} so i gasp no way we will need this i exclaimed....i will keep her in her room we will be fine "HE giggles" What the heck no way not a time to giggle DR. LOL That was on a Friday around 5pm Saturday 6am Letter D crys "momma my throack it huwts" AHHHHHHH..... then sweet baby D awakes at 9am burning up with fever and a cough LOVELY! So all three have been on zithromax today was the last day and i must say "I SURVIVED" i thought for sure i would be a wreck but "I am okay" it passed quickly and the Dr really took care of me he gave me phenergan with antihystamine's (sp) and god love him he knew when i could not even grasp the idea of everyone having the FLU.... THANK GOD....he took care of me! Me and my husband and the older too kiddos "Letter's A and B" no FLU knock on wood LOL pray that we stay well LOL!

Here is Baby D not feeling well and not letting me brush my teeth LOL

huge hugs

Happy Birthday My sweet Gal "Letter C" turned 3 YAY!

Birthday's at our house come one after the other LOL with 5 children "Letter's A,B,C,D and E" what more could one expect! With Letter C her birthday fell 2 days before turkey day this year so we did it on Thanksgiving Day Whooo hoooo :) I was so Excited for her!

FingerPrint Friday "Laughter"


My Peace of Mind ....My Grounding....My Miracles....and Especially my Laughter Can all be summed up in 5 tiny Voices that Call me MOM! Its amazing that you in your heart always think you know WHAT and HOW you want your life to be when your 17/18 years old then like a bolt of LIGHTNING God says hey ...that's totally not your choice my Dear! LOL

My Nanny always said that Angels carried my husband on there wings to me.... She's older than me so i would have to agree but boy what an argument that could be.....Just kidding LOL

God Gave me my FingerPrint in a bathroom stall today of all places! LOL

My Precious three year old has to visit every bathroom in every county along the gulf coast i kid you not....we have visited 9 million bathrooms from the time she has begun fully wearing big girl panties!

So today We went shopping an hour away from home and of course she starts the whole mommy....mommy...i gotta go right now i am like omgosh now really NOW to which she peers from under her hair and says uh mad dash to the bathroom {which was 9 bazillion miles away of course} so we finally get there SHEW and she tinkles and i help her zip as she hops up she looks very puzzaled....and confussed....i say okay okay come on...Mommy has some serious shopping to do missy! She again looks very concerned and faces the toilet i began omgosh don't you dare touch that thing...LOL so she Exclaims in the most precious voice "OKAY MAGIC TOILET FLUSH" .......All the while waiting for the toilet to flush! LOL she stares back at me and says Mommy the magic toilet is broken.....all i could do was bust out laughing...i was laughing so hard... as was the other 3 older ladies in the restroom....of course i had to explain that the potty's at walmart have an automatic flush and we visit it quiet often i stood there all red-faced with laughter! I hurried back and told my husband who explained BOY does that explain alot we know why we MUST go to the bathroom everytime we are out and about!

I just love the fact that she is so smart and so innocent and so amazingly super cute and i THANK GOD every day for my beautiful Footprint on this World!

My Sweetie at age 3

My contribution this week is:

The Miracle of life... My sweet baby from 8 Weeks of Conception...I was told she was not a viable baby ...that she either had down syndrome or trisomy13 and had Nephrosis of the kidneys and shortened limbs of the arms and legs.....When my Doctor said to do an Interrupted Pregnancy i was Devastated.....THANK GOD my heart told me it would be okay! Well i am happy to say that GOD Saw it Different for my sweet Baby girl She was born Feb.1st with the most wonderful spirit of any baby i have ever known...I LOVE HER! She is my Miracle My Footprint on the World!

My precious Miracle baby number 5 and Our newest Addition turned 5 Months Old on July 1st .....Isn't she the most beautiful baby in all the world!
