Project 365: Week 18

April 30, 2009: By the time Thursday rolled around, Wyatt had had a fever for over 5 days in a row and he had developed a bad cough. I wasn’t really worried about Swine Flu, but a little voice in the back of my head started to nag at me, making me think, “What if he actually is a carrier for the pandemic and I just ignore it?” I logged onto the CDC website to look at the list of symptoms and it was like a checklist of everything Wyatt was suffering from. Of course, it was also a checklist of symptoms of a bad cold, but the fever had me pretty worried, so I called into Kaiser for a little peace of mind. The advice nurse decided that a doctor should check him out so we went in. When we got there, his oxygen reading was a little low and after listening to his lungs the doctor immediately sent a nurse in to give Wyatt a nebulizer treatment because he was having an asthma attack. Gah! I hadn’t even noticed! We went home with an albuterol inhaler and Wyatt has been taking it a few times a day since then. You’ll be glad to know that he’s almost completely recovered now, except for a lingering cough.

May 1, 2009: I took a minute to run around the house gathering up all the magazines I haven’t managed to read and I found myself with a stack of twelve! Pictured here, you see Cooking Light, Weight Watchers Magazine, Memory Makers, Wondertime, Simple Scrapbooks, FamilyFun, Martha Stewart Living, Cook’s Country, Scrapbooks Etc., Better Homes and Gardens, and Creating Keepsakes. I couldn’t find my two most recent copies of Real Simple. Yes, I know I have a problem.

May 2, 2009: Zach was in Reno for a bachelor party for the weekend, so I was home alone with two crabby, sick kids. (Augie and I had both caught Wyatt’s illness by then and Zach was suffering through it on his trip, too.) I refused to let Wyatt watch any more movies and the energy required to keep him from whining was eluding me so I broke one of my big rules and took the kids to Toys R Us for no reason whatsoever and bought them toys. Wyatt got this marble run, Augie got some fancy see through balls with stuff inside and I got myself a big Lego house kit.

May 3, 2009: There’s nothing cuter than a baby in sunglasses. Except maybe a basket of kittens…

May 4, 2009: Poor Buzz. Wyatt broke his leg off (accidentally) about two seconds before I took this picture.

May 5, 2009: Now that Augie is a super-crawler, he’s exploring all the nooks and crannies of our house. He especially loves hanging out around the vacuum cleaner.

May 6, 2009: Wyatt finished up his lunch for his after school snack.

    You can’t beat the look on Wyatt’s face with his marble run. Pride and delight!
    But he looks like he’s had a hard week too in his snack picture.

    What are you thinking? A basket of kittens cuter? Sheesh!

    I’m so glad Wyatt is better.What a tough go of it for the Copleys. I personally think Toys R us was cheaper and better than long term therapy! I loved that marble game (Zack and Willy had it too) and it’s perfect for low energy entertainment. And by the way, there is NOTHING cuter that Augie in those sun glasses!!!!!

    A basket of kittens cuter then Augie? Maybe Augie, Wyatt, Rachel, Ben, Kadin, Lorelei and Sagen ALL in sunglasses would be cuter, but a basket of kittens? Who are you trying to kid?

    I LOVE the marble track.

  • A few things to comment on. So sorry that Wyatt asked for regular lunch. I know that must have killed you. Luckily 4.5 year olds are not known for their consistency.

    That marble run thing looks awesome. And, the great thing about having that rule is that you can break it in times of desperation.

    Last, I am also a magazine junkie. I just got notified from the now-defunct Wondertime that my subscription would be replaced with Family Fun magazine. I already get Family Fun. Sad.
