A Regular Pablo Picasso

News in the Ulm household is as follows:

1. Alex is not sick anymore and is making up for lost time.

2. Lauren wants a fish. (the poor thing can't have anything with fur so this is what she can get)

3. Claire LOVES to scribble on everything! She has scribbled on Tupperware, the computer screen, books and her lastest is her foot! Classic!

Finding the bright side of things

So we are all sick again like most of society so I have heard. It has been horrible! Lauren was down for almost a week, then it struck me hard on Saturday and Alex woke up this morning sounding horrible. It has not attacked Claire but I know it won't be long! Jason is in Boston so atleast he is safe for now. I could go on and on and complain about how I feel and how it is horrible to wipe noses and blah, blah, blah! Oh no, not me! I am finding the bright side of this situation and it is the following...

1. Alex is moving at a turtles pace

2. I got to actually take a nap two days in a row

3. My all time favorite is my kids love to cuddle when they are sick! They actually like me and I don't just feel like a maid but a mom. No one can make you feel better like your mom.

So I am embracing the sickness and taking advantage of naps and cuddles.

Anyone else Crazy out there?

So we usually have full weeks of plenty of places to go and people to see. I was excited last night because I knew we did not have MOPS this friday so I would be able to lounge around all morning before taking Lauren to school at 1230. WRONG! At 840 this morning as I'm cuddling in bed with Alex and Lauren starting to enjoy my leisurely morning, Jason says to me doesn't Alex have school today? Shoot! We fly out of bed, get dressed, stuff some Apple Jacks in a baggy and at 855 as Kathy (we carpool together, thank goodness) knocks on the door I'm putting Alex's coat and shoes on.

Why can't I remember he has school on Fridays? I forgot another week too when I had planned to go on the South Side in the morning.

Why do I call my kids the wrong names?

Why? Why? Why? I'm definately crazy!!

In other news, I just checked my friend, Leslie's blog and the TV strike is over!! Praise the Lord!
