last night the boys were playing in our yard and to be honest they don't have two pennies to rub together and their parents are expecting their fourth little boy in just a few days. so i fed them dinner to fill their bellies but also to give their mom and dad a break. they work so so hard and rent a two bedroom apartment across the street from us. SIX people in a two bedroom apartment guys. our six year old neighbor just started kindergarten and he and auggie play together all the time. well neighbor-boy brings all sorts of germs home and thus both my kids are sick... again. last night auggie was so sick it actually woke him up. he cried and wanted hugs, kept saying "want daddy! want daddy!". poor little guy. i went to the store and bought him some herbal tea for colds, i think it's helping. today he can have as much OJ as he wants and he's loving it. i think maybe ill down a clove of garlic or two myself today. i cannot afford to get sick, i mean there are no sick days to just lie in bed for stay at home mothers after all. soon im putting in an order for a while slew of herbal remedies to use when we are sick or achy (belladonna, gelsemium, bryonia, pulsatilla or arsenicum.) right now auggie really needs some kali-bichromicum (loose cough, sinus pressure, and night waking from the cough and congestion) but i fear by the time i ordered it and it got here that the phase indicated would be passed already! i should make a trip to raisin rack but my car is on the fritz and so we are stuck at home during the day until further notice. auggie is a zombie anyways so i think we could all just use a day sitting on the couch watching mind numbing tv drinking tea + oj.
