The New & Improved Say It I Dare You

I'm leaving UAB and transferring to Virginia college for my respiratory therapy degree. I feel good about it. Plus I can go right into the program without all those extra classes I dont need.
Plus uab is going to stop offering a bachelors in respiratory therapy and making it a graduate program! Wtf!
That finalized my decision and I'm happy with it! Go me!

I don't understand these women having all these babies. This day in age is it really necessary to have more than 3 kids? Children are a blessing I am a firm believer of that but if done right raising children is expensive and they require so much of you and your time. Unless you are a farmer I just don't see the point of 5, 6 and 7+ kids.

Back in the day I understand it was the norm to have 5-13 kids but nowdays come on.

I also don't understand these women who have babies by a man who already has 5+ kids by 4 women. What are these women trying to prove by giving a man who already has his own little league team more kids? Do they really expect him to stick around, provide financially and raise kids #6,7 and 8. Do they even think about kids 1 thru 5?

If you took your baby in already and they have him on antibiotics, they usually take about 24 to 48 hrs to start working. Until then, all you can do is manage his symptoms. Fever reducer. Keep him hydrated. He will be tired, his body is fighting and needs all of his energy reserves for that fight, so he won't be running around. If his fever won't come down even with a fever reducer - worry. If he is unresponsive - worry. Try giving him spoonfuls of water or pedialyte to keep him hydrated, like 1 tbsp every 10-20 mins. If he won't take that and he isn't having any wet diapers - worry.

Now don't get me wrong, worrying is not bad. I have my own kids, and truth is even though I know all of this, I worry when my kids are sick. If you have a doctors office that has an on call service, try calling them for advice before you take him in. They can sometimes give you advice and little tips to keep yourself sane. But the ER is for emergencies and if he is already being treated, the ER won't do anything but take up your time and theirs, and potentially expose you to more serious stuff(eww).

Hugs to you and your baby.

I suck at grocery shopping. I spend so much money, and still barely have food for a week.


My mom finally got around to asking where I was getting money from. I've been unemployed for 8 months and haven't asked for any money. Imma start though, b/c I don't like draining my savings.

On my EVO. I'm too fancy for proofreading.
i'm so into hunger games right now. i cut my grocery shopping short just to get back to reading.

And it probably won't be the last time. That's the hard part of being a parent, seeing your kids suffer. Sorry.

1tsp = 5ml. Depending on the syringe, it can look like a little or alot. But when they say a tsp, they don't mean pull one out of the drawer. You should have a dispenser of some sort, most of the time it comes with a little cup, but I like the syringe the pharmacy gives you. I wash them out and use them for other meds cause 3ml of tylenol and 3ml of amoxicillin still equals 3ml. But give him how much the hospital say to. They have the dosage down to his exact weight, whereas the box has no idea how much he weighs and gives you a general idea. Not giving him enough is just like not giving him any. Hopefully with his fever down, he'll sleep so you can sleep.

eta just caught up on posts. You can also alternate bw tylenol and motrin so he can take meds sooner than the 6 hours for each. Just run it by your doctor first. I know what your going through and it's very stressful but the little ones are a lot stronger than they look. Also 102 is certainly high but my son's got to 104 with his recent pneumonia and he's fine now. Just be sure to give him plenty fluids and try pedialyte if he's not eating.

Just saw the Hunger Games. It was interesting. I normally dislike seeing a movie before reading the book, but I think I'll still get the books.

I really liked the movie! There was one part that they took out that was in the book that I was kinda salty about, but I'll get over it. I only cried once.

My main issue was the motion sickness, lol. Some of the camera work got to me. I see why it was done, but I got nauseated.
