After five days of antibiotics the boys (who had walking pneumonia) are doing so much better. Jorge still has a cough occasionally but I called the nurse this morning and she told me that you take Azithromiacin for five days and its still in your body five days after that..so its still working for him to help get rid of the cough. But that he is NOT contagious. Which is good because I have not seen a single soul or my kids had a single playmate in over a week and that bit of info was music to my ears.
So I decided to take them to B & N for a little train time. Alex played with the trains for an hour (usually lasts about 30 minutes) but he was so happy to be out of the house he extended his self control and ability to not throw the trains for and extra thirty minutes. LOL. Jorge also did very well. He kept bringing me book after book to read with him. Which brings me to something. A question for all you mom's with boys. My son will be 4 in June and he is fascinated with not only Spiderman and Batman but also, eh hem, princesses and Ariel. I know this is normal but for how long? Ha. Im not nervous. Its just that whenever he brings me these "princess" books I try to get really enthusiastic when they talk about the prince character and ask him if he is a prince like Eric or Tritan. That's when I get the response, "No mommy, I a mermaid. I a Dash Mermaid." Which is funny because he always says he is Dash from TheIncredibles, but I guess he is a fast mermaid too. I dunno. I will say that whenever I say something like "Don't stand on that, baby, you'll get hurt" he replies, "mommy, I not a baby. I a wild man." He is all boy for sure, but at what point do you get a little concerned with the fairy stuff?
Speaking of the little fella, here are some pics of his recent visit to the bowling alley. It was his first time.
Setting it down gently.. and then ever so gently pushing it. No matter how many times I said "Jorge you gotta push really hard." We even tried the granny toss and that didn't help.
He is a funny little guy.
