A large dose...

No I'm not talking vitamins again. Although, I did get some good tips from yesterday's post. Once I finish these disgusting chewable logs that I purchased last week then I will definitely be on the lookout for the liquid vitamins.

Okay I guess I am talking vitamins. Sorta.

Anyway, I had a large dose of kids the last few days. This past Thursday I watched Beefy for my Lil Sis. Poor baby girl was sick, and fussy, and having a little bit of attachment anxiety. I finally got her to sleep and when she woke up from her nap she was back to her regular smiling self. Thank goodness.

Then on Friday I met Lil Sis and Beefy at BN #3's school to have lunch with him and go to his Vday party.

Lunch was eh...okay. We had hot ham & cheese, which wasn't bad. But on the side were black-eyed peas (ICK!) and pears (ICK!), although I gave my pears to BN#3 and he seemed to enjoy them as did Beefy.

Of course he insisted they were peaches but whatev.

Oh and we didn't have to sit in the little itty-bitty chairs this time so that was a relief bonus. Then the kids went back to their classroom and got their valentine treats - aka sugar bonanza. Cupcakes, ice cream, cookies, Little Debbie cakes, chips...you know the good stuff.

That night S went and got my granddaughter Lil J and we were off to the mall with the intention of getting her ear pierced. That was a negative since we aren't the legal guardians. And Lil J was not feeling it at all.

I don't know what was wrong but she cried until we got back to the car and she finally fell back asleep. For the next few hours she wasn't a happy baby, crying periodically and sleeping in between. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with her so we just assumed she wasn't feeling well and took her home.

We got her again on Sunday and she was a little happier but still very fussy. What's strange is that SD says she was fine Friday night and when she went home on Sunday. Anyway I didn't snap any shots of her since she was being a lil Diva.

Here's some from the Vday party:

Even though I said I wasn't going to do a weekend recap, I kinda did huh?! Oh well, you forgive me right?

You sure did have a big dose. I hate it when they make you sit in those little bitty chairs.
