The flu :(

Poor little Morgan is sick with the Flu. He's been sick all weekend and really bad Sunday. We just figured he was getting a bad case of his Asthma but with the fever...that just didn't make sense. So off to the dr.s we went today, only for him to get poked and prodded again. I felt so bad. First the dr. wanted to check for tonsillitis so with the help of the lollipop stick to push down his throat, two long q-tips went down his throat. Ouch...Then for the flu check, yeah that was fun! Stupid nurse takes a different q-tip puts it up one nose to swab than WAM! she shoves it in the other side, so far I didn't think baby's noses went. I could have sworn she swabbed his brain, and poor Morgan was screaming how bad it hurt him. These are the reasons, my friends, I WILL NOT EVER put unnecessary tourturous medical crap with my son or any other kid I may have. I just won't do it. It's so unnecessary and the people that do it, somehow manage to not know what the heck they are doing. I mean....don't these people work with kids ONLY day in and day out??? What gives?
Anyways, $150 (WITH insurance my friends) later and THREE drugs, we're home. He hasn't really ate all day, but I just got him to eat some crackers. The coughing has come down a bit, which is nice, but we have a LONG night ahead of us tonight. Ahh the joys of having little humans around to care for. I just think back to all the times my mom used to get up to cuddle me, rock me or just shove medicine down my throat to shut up. Whatever the was always MOMMY I cried out to, and it still is. I only hope my baby boy will realize that when he grows up.
By no means do I want him to be mommas-boy, but appreciation, value, loyalty and making sure that I'm doing OK is all I ask. Some may think that is too much, but that's where I came from...and my boy better have two braincells in his brain to never put anyone over his own flesh and blood, the one that birthed him and sacrificed for a better life.
Ok, off my soapbox.
Love to all

Halloween 2009

OMGish, this year was so much fun. Not only did I spend an amazing time at a friends house the day prior, but for Halloween we all went out as a family and celebrated! It wasn't what I envisioned, but that's what was so great about it! Nothing was perfect, costume didn't stay on all night, no running up to any doors screaming trick or treat, no consuming ALL the candy. haha
BUT, by going to the church his school is attached to for their Truck or Treat event, Morgan did try his best to come out of his comfort zone and go up to people for candy, we did try taking off his shoes (on about three different occasions) to go on inside a bouncy tarp. . He was obsessed with rock climbing, which unfortunately he couldn't get on...maybe next year buddy! After a while, daddy even tried on Morgan's outfit on for size!! This would be Thomas all grown up. heheh
After that, we went over to Kandi's house, which Halloween there was being shared with her husbands 30th birthday. As soon as the music was on, he was on the dance floor aka living room. He was the only boy up there shaking his money maker and having a blast at it too. He loves to dance so much. Can't wait till he gets older, I see dance lessons in his future.
I'll try to be better at posting here more often. Life happens so fast, that I get selfish and take in all the moments for myself. I'll make sure to keep the camera loaded or better yet, figure out how to do all this from my phone!! xoxoo


About Us

My photo
Las Vegas, NV, United States
We are a family of three no more, no less! Jon and I have know each other for 18 years now. Started with being really good friends and talking on the phone (well, me crying about the loser boyfriends I had), but Jon was always there. Providing me with the support and love I needed, weather I wanted it or not, was not the issue. We finally made our connection in 2004, courted for about three months, because really, there was only a very few things we DIDN'T know about each other. A year later, we were blessed to become pregnant and through the stress of the high-risk pregancy, we had a gorgeous baby boy. His name was already predetermined! 'Morgan' is Jon's moms maiden name, there is a running joke with the 'Morgans' due to their attitude. Alejandro was from my uncle's name 'Alejo' I've always liked that name and we wanted to have our son represent both sides of his heritage. PLUS my parents couldn't say Morgan for the longest, so Alejandro is what he is called by mommy's family, and Morgan is used for daddy's family. We wonder why our son is so confused most of the time, right?? We are a happy family! Nothing could be wanted more
