Amazing Day

Yesterday was an absolutely, amazingly, wonderful day! Levi had been nursing a cold all week and yesterday morning he woke up with a slight fever and a sore (looked red) throat, so I let him stay home. I let the boys laze around and eat a late breakfast, we played on the computer, we did Yoga together, and they had a dinner of appetizers and root beer (they love this meal). There was not one time out all day. Not one fight between boys. Not one bathroom 'accident' all day. I got all the laundry done, the laundry room re-organized and floors swept and mopped. By the time Chris got home all 3 boys had had haircuts and were in the tub playing and dinner was in the oven.

I was so relaxed all day and I'm sure that was a big part of why it went so well. Oh how my little ones feed off of negative energy. No matter how hard I tried to fake it, they felt it and reacted poorly. They all slept in this morning, the two little guys slept 11 hours straight and Levi is still asleep. Heck, I slept really great!

Here's to the hardest most rewarding job in the whole world - Stay at home Mom!

My Joe's healing began with me quitting my job. I literally couldnt deal with the stress of work AND the stress of being Joe's mom at the same time. Now I am more calm, relaxed and engaged. Enjoy!!

I am sorry to hear about your daughters diagnosed with Lupus. I am not sure what area you live in Houston but my Aunt has been seeing an awesome Rheumatolgist named Dr. Harvey Hyman for her Lupus. He has an office in Houston and in Sugarland. My Aunt has had Lupus for 21 years now and she believes if it has not been for Dr. Hyman she would not be here today. I think he use to also be an infectious disease physician. My Aunt hates the weather in Houston but she will never leave the great physicians that has helped her with this challenging disease.
