I *tried* to be calm and asked Spencer if he took the pill that was lying on the counter. In Spencer's defense, I lay a Claritan on the counter for him every morning. Anyway, Spencer just looked at me. Again, I told him, it was very important that he tell Mommy if he took the pill. All of a sudden he started crying and asked if he would get in trouble if he said yes. We assured him that he wasn't in trouble but immediately called the pediatrician on one line and they had poison control on the other line. After checking his weight and the strength of the medicine, they instructed me how to re-hydrate him because that pill would really flush him out at that strength. I was so upset and totally mad at myself--what kind of parent leaves a pill on a counter even for 4 seconds????? Where was my head????
About an hour of crying and beating myself up, I went back in the kitchen and moved a piece of mail on the counter--and THERE WAS THE FREAKIN PILL!!!! I only had one out of the bottle and this was my first prescription so I know it was the ONLY one that could have been on the counter!!!! I showed it to Spencer and asked why he admitted to swallowing it if he really didn't. He said that when I got upset he got confused and then he couldn't remember if he did or not. How's that for a valuable lesson? My emotions can completely skew Spencer's ability to process information. Good to know right? My kid can be convinced he did something he didn't do all the while his daddy is sticking his fingers down the kid's throat trying to get him to vomit a pill he never took. I hate that we all had to go through it, but we learned a few lessons about (1) not leaving pills out. (2) Not letting emotion confuse Spencer (3) the pediatrician thinks I'm a nutcase and (4) Toby can't make Spencer vomit.

Today was IV's birthday party! I can't believe my little Ivlet Givlet Jackelina Hyena is 4 already!!! I love this picture of him. Mom had just handed him his plate of cake and icecream and he could barely contain how excited he was! IV is my nephew (Jimmy and Melissa's son.)
We had a nice, casual get together including a big spaghetti dinner-- hence the "sketti" stains all over the kids' clothes and faces in all the pictures!
I tell ya-- I don't know what they are using for food coloring dye in the cake icing but that stuff is nearly permanent!! We ALL had Power Ranger blue fingers by the end of the evening!!!

I have a RAK high. I received a RAK (random act of kindness) in the mail from a friend. Something wonderfully unexpected, a little gift with no reason, no obligations, nothing but "here, this is for you just because I thought of you." Isn't that nice? Made an average day an exceptional day!!!

Hopefully, post surgery, his newly cleared out sinus cavity and his removed (abnormally large) adenoids will clear out all this constant infection. He sure deserves a break!!

Yep-- my poor little Spencer is still sick. We have Disney coming up in a couple of weeks so we need to get this kid well! He had ANOTHER doctor visit today and then he went for a CT scan. He was a perfect little angel and was v.e.r.y still for the technicians- I was so proud of him!
