Cough, Cough, Achoo!

So I have decided that Jason is the more concerned parent when it comes to having a sick child. Josh had a low grade fever yesterday and he has this awful cold that comes with a runny nose and icky coughs. His eyes were watery and reddish around them (from rubbing them). Not to mention the poor guy is teething. So Ibuprofen and some extra love should solve the problem. Jason always gets concerned and wants to take him to the doctor. He has his 9 month check up on Monday so I think he will be fine until then. Especially since he doesn't have a fever today. Although the cough is heart wrenching to listen to. I sometimes feel bad because I think it will pass, the body will fight off whatever it is battling and drugs will help along the way, but Jason is concerned and thinks he is on his death bed (maybe a little over exaturated). I just hate going to the doctor and they say he has a cold. Although I do get concerned about ear infections and that cough in the middle of the night. I guess Jason just freaks me out sometimes since he gets so concerned and then it seems like I'm not doing anything about it. I think I get it from my mom and he gets it from his. My mom is pretty laid back and his mom is an overly concerned mom...she just called because she heard that Josh wasn't feeling well. How funny when I am in the middle of writing this blog. Anyway I love Josh.

On other news, I made some really good white chili the other night for the institute chili cook off. I think I'm going to add it to my recipes. Although that is one that I will have to invite people over to eat. It makes a lot.

On House news, The have stained the cabinets in the kitchen (Jason saw them and loves it) and they are in the middle of that leaves staining the wood floors, carpet, lighting & the outside of the house. Oh my it is almost done!!!

It's funny how the dads get all concerned when it's the child...not when we get sick! Boys...
And I would like to see this chili recipe. I don't think I've ever made white chili but love all things chili.

It's ok. People made me think I was a bad mom for letting Lillie cry herself to sleep. How else is she going to learn to sleep in her crib by herself???? Don't feel bad.

It is cute though to see Dad's get all worried about their kids...only when nothing is really wrong though :)
