Our Five Ring Circus: Pre-K, here he comes!

Pre-K, here he comes!

I did something today, that not so long ago, seemed so far off.

I registered Dylan for Pre-K. He will be going to the same school that his daddy went to. I have to admit, the whole thing felt surreal, as we waited in line to register him. I just can't believe that my baby is old enough to go to Pre-K. When did that happen? How in the world did he grew up so fast? It seems like he was just born!

There were no openings in the morning session, so we took the afternoon session, and he is on the waiting list to be switched to AM. I guess PM wouldn't be a huge deal, but I prefer the AM session. I'll keep my fingers crossed, but I'm just happy we got him in. It was my first choice school for him. A big plus, is that our second choice school cost $1000/year more, so we will be saving on tuition!

Grant told me later in the evening, that the whole registration process made him feel so much more mature. We are, indeed, going to be parents of a school-aged child. EEEK!

In other news, Lexie woke up at 7 AM, covered in puke. So Lexie got to experience her first stomach virus ever, as well. It's been an exciting week of firsts for us!

I feel positively horrible, because I think she got sick before midnight last night. I went into her room to get our cat out of her crib, and thought I smelled something. I checked her out, and didn't see anything, but looking back on it, she was draped over her pillow, which is what the puke was covering.

I. Let. My. Baby. Sleep. In. Puke.

When she woke up, she was in a good mood at first (probably because she was thrilled to get out of those nasty pajamas), but had a fever. Shortly after, she started tossing and turning on my bed, moaning, "Belly! Oh no!" over and over again. It was so pitiful, and I felt terrible. I managed to get her back to sleep, and she woke up much happier.

Of course, she kept us on our toes all day, because she didn't pee until the evening. Because of her diarrhea, we have to carefully monitor her liquid intake, so the throwing up must have pushed her towards dehydrating. Luckily, we got her to drink more, and she had a wet diaper, so all is fine.

She must have overhead me making plans to get her blood tests done today. ;)

I am really looking forward to my dinner out with my husband on Saturday night. I need a short break from all the sickness and injuries.

Honestly, I think I got off easy for my first time experiencing a stomach virus in my kids. It wasn't that bad, and it was very short lived.

Now, I'm just hoping that I don't get sick. Or the hubby!

If it must happen, I'm hoping it can hold off until after my dinner!
