In Which I Discover An Alien Conspiracy

Well, little guy has progressed beyond what could be explained as eczema and is now well into "allergic reaction" territory. He looks like a prizefighter after the big match-- one eye is starting to swell. I have no idea what caused this particular reaction, but if he's still not looking better by tomorrow evening I'll take him to the doctor on Friday.

We enjoyed our nice, easy day around the house. Jer's got another appointment requiring van transportation tomorrow, so my mother-in-law will be taking the little guy to school while I go along for the ride. It's going to be really nice once we have our own transportation, as the van always comes at least an hour to an hour and a half before Jer's appointments to make sure they have plenty of time to find the place. That's time we could be sleeping! Oh well-- we should be picking up the van on Saturday. Can't wait!

On a crazy side note; you may remember me discussing Tubie the alien from one of the scariest children's books I have ever seen. Well, when Connor's new earmolds for his hearing aids came, there was a pamphlet in the box about Toobie the earmold tube, who cautions kids not to pull out their earmolds by the tube. And other than the crazy buck teeth Toobie is sporting, they look exactly the same. Tubie and Toobie.

Coincidence? I think not.

Not that it looks like it in the photos we've seen, but it couldn't be chicken pox or anything, could it? I know the vaccines aren't 100% effective.

Oh, goodness! I hope Connor's allergic reaction disappears. I wonder if he's coming into contact with something at school?

I'm highly disappointed that we have never received a "Toobie" pamphlet with our earmolds. Nolan yanks his by the tube all the time, but that is the least of our worries. The playdough stuffed into the microphone filter and disassembling them into tiny pieces is FAR more fun than just yanking on the tubing!

I'm so glad you can find humor all around you...except for the poor little man's eczema / reaction. I hope he's doing better!
