I have to admit, Brian and I crashed and burned this past week. It started out with my alarm going off at 6am. All is going well. I get ready and leave for work. Around 8am I get a text from Brian telling me his alarm didn't go off. Sure, tell yourself that....I have watched him many times accidentally turn it off instead of hitting snooze. Needless to say, Drew missed school. On top of that we already had sick, wheezing quads who had an appointment with our pedi. Cold and flu season can't already be here. We aren't off to a very good start.
Tuesday comes around and it was just busy. Everyone was cranky, I had a meeting and worked late. TIME FOR BED! Wednesday I again, get up and leave for work. I receive a call at school...ITS BRIAN! Apparently he ignored me when I said "Put both our car keys on your key ring." This would make it so we each have a set for both our vehicles. He has no keys for the Acadia to take Drew to school. Luckily our neighbor was home sick from work. He graciously let Brian take Drew to school in his car and he watched the babies. I brought Drew home to find later in the afternoon that his right ear is twice the size of his left. UGH!
Thursday, woo-hoo! Friday is almost here. I worked two extra days this week for some extra cash. I was told by the pediatricians office staff to take Drew to urgent care for his ear. OK, so I call Brian and tell him he needs to take Drew in. Lets just say, sometimes it's easier said than done. We have Drew seen and he gets antibiotics. Thank goodness, it's bedtime!
Today has been a bit more relaxed. I worked, took the kids outside to play, made dinner, did dishes, and did two loads of laundry. Not to mention UPDATE THE BLOG! Ha! Lots to do this weekend. My sister Stacy gets married next weekend so I need to get it done. My parents are coming on Wednesday and it will be super busy from there on out. I'm so excited and so scared I'm gonna forget something. Time to make a list. First, maybe a snooze in my bed.

I have to say what an eventful weekend. What started out to be fun and enjoyable quickly went south. :( We had some Oreos for snack and that's what started it. Maddox ran into the kitchen table while picking up crumbs and cut his lip open. After I got that taken care of, Emma tripped over a toy only to give herself a nice mark on her lip. As I was cleaning Jack up from snack Parker fell from his seat to the floor giving himself a concussion and a broken collar bone. We made not only one trip to the ER, but two! They did a head CT on Saturday about 2 hours after his fall due to wiggling eyes and disorientation. He cried and cuddled so much that no one realized he wasn't moving his left arm. I ended up taking him back Sunday morning to have his arm and shoulder x-rayed. We see the Orthopaedics doctor in the morning. I will keep this updated as much as possible. OH...and we aren't done there with the boo boos! I got home only to get the kids in bed and have Drew jump off the couch to bite his cheek. It bled FOREVER!! Not really, but geez it was like 10 minutes. Hopefully that will take care of boo boos for the rest of the year. I seriously have had two kids break bones in the lat four months. This being a mom to five toddlers is TOUGH.
I've been so busy kissing broken and brusied body parts that I've not had time for anything else. I'm still working on painting Drew's bedroom and swapping out clothes in closets. Just catching up on sleep and working completes the rest of my busy days.
Post more soon!

It's beginning to feel like fall! We have been able to play comfortably outside. The kids have been throwing fits when it's time to come in for dinner or bath. I now know what my parents went through when I was little. My poor parents!! I have to admit, as much as I'm dreading the terrible two's, the kids being able to climb the play set and run with each other is amazing. I have the best time outside with my kids.
We finally had the chance to go to Grandma Susan and Papa Jack's new house. The kids loved it. They ran all over the house exploring new things. Little JR(Jack) found the phone. I hope he didn't call anyone long distance. Susan, I'm sorry I've changed my address so please don't forward the phone bill. Drew loved papa's new 3D tv. The shades give a whole new meaning to fashion. Emma liked the kitchen, but I'm thinking it was the brownies that were in there. She licked her plate clean like a little doggy. Parker and Maddox just loved the space to run. I believe I might have two athletes. Grandmas house was a blast, we will visit again soon.
Brian starts his new job in less than a month. We couldn't be more excited. He bought a new car to cut down on the gas expenses. It's sharp (in his words). He picked out a new Toyota Corolla S. Very sporty and gas milage friendly. He is gonna be crusing Indianapolis in style!!
Not much else happening other than cold and flu season has already hit the Scott house. Everyone but Drew is sick. The quads are cranky and there's lots of cuddling and crying going on. Daddy and I are hanging tough....lots of cold meds! Hoping to kick this bug quick.
