I spent last weekend hacking my lungs out, with the kids and The Mister following suit. And The Mister is taking the fall for this one, since he was the one who got sick first and was *also* the only one who refused a flu shot. Turd. I ended up taking Butterbean to the doctor since she could barely sleep without hacking herself awake, and because the memories of pneumonia are still fresh in my mind. But the doctor checked her out and said she was fine, the cough is always the last thing to go. And her ears were clear, which I am partially crediting to this:
She takes one a day of these (we switch out her daily multivitamin with this when she gets congested)
Last night The Mister was back at work and I was home with both girls, trying to catch up on laundry/dog hair removal etc. I've been trying to leave the TV off as much as possible, which the munchkins have been so good with. Mooch ran down to her room and got her guitar and asked Butterbean and I to sit because she was going to put on a show for us. "It's my new band, Mama - Western (which she pronounced 'Wes-ter-en') and the Guitars" she tuned her guitar like a pro and then said, "OK, this is my first song, called, I Look All around And See Myself" Isn't that the BEST NAME for a song?!?!?!! I'm
I tried to play along on a tambourine (I'm not so musically adept) but was told this was a "guitar song only". Mooch was more accommodating when her sister joined in on the safety whistle/flashlight combo her daddy thought was appropriate to give to a 2 year old with limitless energy.
So, dear readers, you and only YOU can witness the first official band photos of the soon to be superband, Western and The Guitars, with additional backup by Butterbean Flutterbean.
