Kaisey to doctor's for croup= steroid shot + cough medicine
Kaleb to Instacare for suspected strep= virus + cough medicine
Kaisey to Instacare lethargic= double ear infections + anti-biotic
Trent to Instacare= cough medicine + anti-biotic
Kali to Instacare fever= urinary infection + anti-biotic
Kali BACK to Instacare 2 days later with higher fever= pneumonia + another anti-biotic
So here's where my fun begins.
See how cute that giant cupcake is? Yeah. It was hell. So I follow the simple easy directions for the Big Top Cupcake. Simple my ______. I followed the directions. Regular cake mix, spray cleaned liners with non-stick coating, bake for 35 min til toothpick comes out clean from each piece, wait 15 minutes til cooled and then gently remove. Nope. Gently removed and the thing fell apart. Alright...so we'll try it again. Regular cake mix...blah blah blah, spray with non-stick coating AND I flour as well.
I then jump in the shower, because I've got to get ready for church. Trent calls and tells me he's gonna drop off Kali (from the Instacare) so he can run and get her some medicine since she's NOW got pneumonia as well as the urinary infection.
Voila! Big Top Cupcake works this time.....only as I'm taking the top out I accidentally drop it in the sink...and it falls apart. Here's where Trent drops Kali off and I'm furious, as well as worried about my little girl. I've GOTTA leave to get to church...so I'm just gonna leave the kids with Abbi for about 15 minutes til Trent gets home.....and then Kali pukes all over the floor. As start to clean that up (in my church clothes) Kaleb informs me that the dog has puked as well. This is where I start to get REALLY frustrated.
Head to church find a sub (THANK YOU Brother Fugal) and try not to bawl like a baby.
Get home in time to clean up MORE puke, and start another giant cupcake. Regular cake mix blah blah blah! Phew! Last time is a charm. I've got SO much cake I can make Cakepops for days! Be ready neighbors....because if they stay here my diet is toast!
My SWEET Abbi took care of bathing Kaisey, getting her dressed, and even doing her hair.
After EVERY present Kaisey would say "OPY" (open). So each present would be carefully taken out of the package and loved before we could move on.
Then came the giant _____(insert choice words here) cupcake. Blowing out the candles.......
.....and then she bit into before we could stop her!
Happy Birthday to my sweetie pie! Here's to better health!
