Sippy Cups and Other Stuff

Do you like the new sippy cup Rerun got?

He’s really beginning to get the hang of it!

And he’s got a killer smile to go with his brightly colored sippy cup.

So far, he’s just having water… but I have a feeling that could change very soon…

In other news… I have to take Tad to the doctor today.  All of the kids have been fighting a cold (I think Rerun brought it home first), complete with runny noses and coughs.  Ane’s also suffering from allergies, and has had very puffy eyes the last couple of days.  The eyes are clear, but the lids look like she’s been crying herself to sleep each night.  She’s starting to improve, but then…  An hour after Tad got home from school, he began poking at his left ear, trying to dig into it with a Q-Tip, and crying that he’d “hurt his ear.”  I found the swimmer’s ear drops that he had a couple of summers ago, and put a few in, but that didn’t do the trick.  The poor boy cried through dinner, we skipped going to the open swim at the pool, and I dosed him up with Benadryl and Tylenol and sent him to bed early.  He’s never had an ear infection before, so either there’s a first time for everything, or he does have another case of swimmer’s ear that needs drops that aren’t about to expire.

This is shaping up to be a fun weekend!
