Jake is SIX!

Yesterday, my sweet little first born baby boy turned six. I can't believe it. Where did my little chubby baby go? I can barely hold him in my arms he has gotten so big. At least he promises me that he will always want to fall asleep in my bed. I told him his wife might not agree to that and he said he won't get married.

We celebrated with brownies at school and O'Charley's for dinner. His big birthday party will be Saturday with all his friends. We are having a balloon maker/magician guy come. Hopefully he enjoys it.

Happy Birthday, buddy. Mommy loves you from the tip of your toes, past your nose to the top of your head.


Well we are moving back to Michigan this summer. I have mixed emotions. We love it here but we will be closer to family there. Jake seems okay with the idea because he knows he will get to see his Michigan friends again. Molly is clueless but I think she will have a hard time leaving "her Keegan".

I've been under tons of stress lately which hasn't been helped by this news. I even ended up in the ER one morning. I've mostly gotten myself back on track but I am awaiting some blood work results. The medicines I am on make me very tired so its hard to function throughout the day. I need lots of naps. Not good when you have a particularly active (and destructive) three year old.

Speaking of aforementioned three year old, she got kicked out of dance this morning for not listening. Threw a fit because I wouldn't let her play in the gym after class. Tore some tubing off the stairwell at class (its meant to soften the blow if you walk into it). She is currently in her room and I am sure she is destroying it. Sigh.

I am going to post a separate post about Jake because this one is too whiny.

Jake and I are both sick. In typical kid fashion, he has bounced back quickly. I feel like warm camel spit. I hope Dave comes home early so I can nap.

Something I already believed but some people need Big Brother to tell them before they believe it.

Thimerosal Exposure Declines, Autism Rates Increase

Exposure to thimerosal, a preservative that contains ethylmercury, during childhood is not a primary cause of autism.
