We Survived!

In: Illness and Medical

This weekend was a little rough in the Hamilton household. We noticed that the girls were a little wimpy on Saturday, which was confirmed when Sophia slept for 10 hours on Sunday. Yes. You read that right. She slept from 10am to 8pm. We tried to wake her several times including for lunch, but she [...]

Be Careful What You Wish For

In: Illness and Medical

Last night, we were sitting at dinner, and Sophia was being a pout about eating. I got a little fed up with her attitude so I did what any loving and concerned mother would do, I started forking her food for her. Quickly that escalated to me feeding her (don’t judge…you’ve all done it). Anyway, [...]

The Sick

In: Illness and Medical

I have to admit that I’m getting a little tired of everyone in this house being sick. Sophia is actually the healthiest of all of us right now. She’s only got about four more days of antibiotics left though so who knows what will happen after that. Oh, and let me pause to bitch about [...]

If I Didn’t Have a Blog

In: Illness and Medical

I was thinking today that it’s a good thing that I have a blog. Otherwise, I think that I would not be nearly as able to find the comedy in weeks like this, but when crazy shit happens now I just think, “I’m going to make that so funny on the blog.” Anyway, last night [...]


In: Illness and Medical

I’m taking my lunch break to weave this little tale for you… I woke up this morning having slept through the night for the first time in days. I was feeling awesome. Hailey was going back to school today which meant I was going back to work. I was super excited about the day. I [...]

Nothing Like a Little Drama

In: Illness and Medical

I’ve been a little silent on the blog front lately due to my traumatic experience on Thursday evening. Here to recount all of the excitement is a guest columnist…Luke…with commentary by me, of course (in red). 6pm Alisa was picking up the girls from school, when the gate slammed on her and dislocated her shoulder [...]

What’s Up

In: Illness and Medical

Sophia came down with a fever Wednesday morning (3am). The fever was gone by 1pm that day. Then, she got another one today at school, but it was gone by 4pm. What is going on with my children and these mystery fevers? I’ve really had enough of all this craziness!

The Shoulder Incident

In: Illness and Medical

Last Wednesday, I was sitting at my desk like a good little soon-to-be ex-employee.  I was actually on the phone with a woman from one of our Divisions with whom I was speaking for the first time.  Mid-sentence, I casually reached back to grab my water bottle and BANG my shoulder popped right out of [...]

Inaugural Ear Infection

In: Illness and Medical

It was only a matter of time before the little one got sick, and so it goes. She’s contracted her first ear infection. I’m so proud. Not really. I’m so sad because now I have to feed her Amoxicillin. Yes I had to go in the fridge and get the bottle to spell that. So, [...]

Tooth + Tooth + Tooth = Teeth

In: Illness and Medical, sophia

Sophia has cut her third tooth.  This time it’s on the top right side.  The teething hasn’t been so bad this time except for the part where she has a low grade fever and more snot than could possibly be contained in her little body.  I don’t know whether or not she’s sick or just [...]
