Poor Little Man...

Jake is covered from head to toe in eczema! My poor guy. We're headed to the doctor tomorrow morning at 9:45. He is very unhappy. I'll update tomorrow with how he is doing. I'm doing all that I can to keep him slathered up with lotions and diaper cream (since the rash is also in his diaper). Lindsey is trying to help keep him from crying with dancing around the house and being silly but it is making me a little crazy.

With Dan working third shift now, I try really hard to keep the house quiet so he can sleep, but my two wonderful children do not LIKE to be quiet. Dan's a pretty sound sleeper though, so I suppose it's all good. I really hate him being on third shift...not because of the hours, but because he is so unhappy in this position. I hate my husband to be unhappy. But he does what he needs to to keep us afloat. But I am doubting that he will be able to do it for much longer. I'm just trying to remain supportive and loving :)

Lindsey is obsessed with the TV. Movies, TV, video games, whatever. And I'm having a hard time breaking her away from it. Today she has watched 1 movie (while my MIL was here watching the kids while I was in microbiology) but that is it. She doesn't have to be so attached to the damn thing. I'm half tempted to get it out of the freaking out but I think my husband would divorce me. haha. So, I've taken to only allowing it during certain times. I'm the TV Nazi.

I'm off to go do some studying, I have a big microbiology test on Thurs that I am only somewhat prepared for...but I wanted to update :)

Living in Fast Forward

Life is going by so fast. Between classes, Dan working, the kids, and clinicals starting, I have been a busy, busy woman. Things are going ok. Dan really does not like this new position with his company, but apparently it is temporary, so I hope that it is.

Classes are going well, I really enjoy patient care and I've made friends within the class that I enjoy being around four days a week! Microbiology is hard, but I am actually enjoying the information that I am learning. Genetics is super cool :)

Lindsey is almost done with her reading lessons! I'm very proud of her. I hate that I can't devote as much time to her, and I'm afraid that she will resent her brother, but unfortunately I just can't do it all. Jake has been grumpy lately because he is trying to tell us that he doesn't want the bottle, but unfortunately, Mommy can't be with him all the time, so he has to deal with it! He has the most amazing laugh that I take advantage of at any time possible.

Today I am going to try to do some scrapbooking done, go take the kids to the park, take a nap, and enjoy time with my hubby. Tomorrow I am volunteering at the consignment sale with Janna, and Dan begins third shift. Ugh. Hopefully it won't be too long.
