There is a lot of little sickys in my house this week. Kayla started us with a little bit of pink eye. She would wake up in the morning and after her nap with her eyes sealed shut from the mucus. Poor baby. So I called in reinforcements. . .grandma! Grandma has some good home remedies for just about anything. We did a lot of different things. Salt and Soda baths, rubbed cod liver oil on her feet, full body olive oil massages, and gave her tons of fluids. Then someone told me about Colloidal Silver being a good home remedy for Pink eye. So I asked grandma Audrey about it. She got on the phone with a company that she bought Molecula Silver from. Similar to Colloidal but better. So we followed their instructions and put it in her eye and also gave it to her orally. While we were at it Erik took some, Alex, Grandma, and even I took some. Well after we put it in her eye we put her to bed. The next day . . . . . NO Mucus! Coincidence. . . I don't think so. Well now Alex is getting pink eye and a little mucus. So we put the Molecula Silver in his eyes last night and WA LA. . . his eyes are better today. No mucus sealing them shut. His are still a little pink but I was half way thinking he would wake like she had in the past before we tried the Molecula Silver. So the point to this is, if you get pink eye and you like home remedies, try Colloidal Silver or Molecula Silver.
A cute thing that happened yesterday was Alex had found his dads harmonica! He was playing it telling me it was his. Well I want him to understand that not everything he likes belongs to him. SO I told him it is daddy's harmonica but daddy likes to share so you can play with it. He liked the idea that Dad was so willing to share. Then I asked him if he knew what it was called. He said what. I said it is called a Harmonica. He said No. It is not Monika's, it is daddy's. I said no it is called a Har-Mon-I-Ca! That is the name. He then said, no it is not Monika's. . .it is daddy's. I don't want to share it with Monika! Alex has a cousin named Monika so you can see where he got a little confused. SO I told him it was called a musical Reed instead for arguments sake. I was laughing pretty hard.
Alex has discovered that he likes to talk and especially now since his vocabulary has increased so much. He just talks and talks and talks and talks. I remember the days when I wanted my baby to talk and now I wish I could mute him sometimes. Erik came home last night and he finds it funny how much Alex likes to talk. I said of course you do. . . it is really cute especially if it is just for a little while. He has so many questions and he will ask them over and over again until he gets the answer he wants. I love him to death though. Normally it is endearing but I have been fighting my own sickness this week and it would be so much nicer to just lay in bed. But the life of a mom doest allow a sick day. Yesterday I had Alex napping with me, I had already made my bed once keep in mind. He started coughing and then threw up all over my bed. So I quickly took all the soiled things threw them in the wash and put clean sheets on the bed. Well then he fell asleep so I left to get some laundry done. The last thing I wanted to do was do laundry while feeling so lousy. Then I heard Alex crying. I went upstairs, his diaper was off (he wears a diaper for bedtime) and he said I peed in you bed mommy. So I changed the sheets again, and had to do more laundry. Oh the life of being a mom. Most days I love it but when I am sick I don't love it. I want to be taken care as much as my kids need me to take care of them. Erik has been really good to help. He stayed late on Tuesday and took Alex to school and then he picked him up. So I was able to rest while Kayla napped that day. As I said earlier Grandma has been helpful too. Anytime we are sick she runs over with her bag full of things to make us all feel better. What would we do without her. We are lucky to have someone that cares so much about our health and well being. Thanks Grandma Audrey! :)
