Grab Bag for Boys...

Edited to add: Not sure what's going on with the photo - if you are only seeing a "red x", try refreshing your browser...it's showing for me now, but when I first opened my blog, I got the red x, too. SORRY!


Just a quick post today, and I am off to client's until after lunch! Good times, good times! Ü

I was ITCHING (or maybe that was just my spring allergies, lol) to use this Grab Bag for Boys that I grabbed from Studio Flergs. See? It's not at all sparkly, like the Grab Bag for Girls is. I love the rugged color scheme, and the distressed and rusty look. It's all boy! So it was perfect for this page about my "all boy" boy. Poor little man - he has allergies and asthma both. Last summer/fall was a rough season for us, trying to keep a handle on treatments, and learning the "triggers", so we could try to prevent respiratory episodes. We're in close contact with the pediatrician, so we've managed pretty well, despite the worsening asthma symptoms. It's such a bummer when your baby is suffering with a chronic condition! For this pneumonia episode, Wyatt came home with FIVE (yes five!) prescriptions! The pharmacist actually pulled me aside and told me I have really good insurance. You know - I don't think about that too much, other than to grumble about the rising costs each year, but for September of 2007, we got our money's worth! Pneumonia is a scary diagnosis, so I'm glad we weren't further stressed worrying about treatment. We were very lucky to catch it early, and Wyatt only ended up missing 3 days of school, so that was a blessing. But in usual busy boy fashion, on about day 7 of the prescriptions, he shouted "I am SO SICK of taking medicine!" LOL. I hear ya, son! He is a trooper though!

Poor little fella. Isn't it great to have insurance when you need it?? I'm so glad you are able to keep his health problems somewhat under control! It's so hard when they're sick...
I love that grab bag, got it myself. So much fun to be had totally worth the price!
