Here's what happens if your 3 year old says "high" instead of "tall" :

Cason: Mom, I'm so high.

Me: How high are you?

Cason: I'm this high (showing with his arms). When I was two I was this high. When I'm five I'll be higher. Mom, how high are you?

Me: I'm this high.

Cason: How high is Daddy?

Me: Daddy's about this high.

Cason: Who's higher, you or Daddy?

Me: Daddy is definitely more high than me.

Cason: My friend Haley is high too. And Alli is higher than me (sorry you were dragged into this Haley and Alli). But I'm really high. REALLY, REALLY high.

And now I have the song, "Because I got High" in my head.

Do you ever have one of those blogs that you enjoy reading and then the person doesn't post for a while and you're all, "Why aren't you posting? I know you've been stuff this week. POST!!" And then you think, "Well, fine, then. I just will quit reading!" But really, inside, you really want them to post?

So sorry about the lack of post-age. I know my mom is quite upset about it.

Here is my week:

Sunday: Oldest Child starts throwing up. I do not get to leave the house all day.

Monday: Oldest Child seems better so we do some light shopping then lunch. That afternoon, vomit commences again followed by a 5 hour nap and high fever. Colin and I get in a fight about a)the amount of medicine Oldest Child needs and b) the odds of whether or not Oldest Child has swine flu.

Tuesday: Youngest Child goes to school, Oldest Child gets to go to the doctor. After a strep test, and a flu test (which caused a massive nosebleed and also almost resulted in him getting a FLU SHOT instead of a FLU TEST; nurse blames dr's handwriting, dr blames silly nurse) we are told it's "just a virus!" Ok, can I have my copay back?

Wednesday: I do not get to leave the house all day with Oldest Child. Most of the day is spent with me saying to Oldest Child, "Geez, it's a just a virus! Get over yourself so we can enter into the land of the living for heavens sake!"

Thursday: We had been out in the "land of the living" for about 20 minutes when I get a call from the doctor. Oldest Child does, in fact, have strep throat. And in her words, "it's a pretty contagious strand of it!" Did I mention he's AT PRESCHOOL?

Friday: I didn't leave the house all day.

I mean, I'm blogging on a Friday night. Jealous? I was so sick of Oldest Child that I sent him to Sears with his dad to get him out of my hair. He was wearing a t-shirt that was two sizes too small and church dress pants. Ask me if I even care. Hopefully they'll bring back chocolate. I wouldn't bet on it though.

What mom can't relate to this? Yesterday in the car, Kendall did this to me. When I finally said, "What?!?!?!" She held out her cup and said, "Juice!"

Thank you for sharing.
