The W Family Chronicles

Archive for May 2008

Today ranks right up there as one of the worst days of my life.  After much running around and several unpleasant tests, J was diagnosed with pneumonia today.  There is way more to this story, including a doctor’s appt on Tuesday where they missed it completely and an absolutely terrible nurse at the ped’s office, but I am so exhausted and emotionally wrecked that I can’t even begin to tell this story.  I am afraid I will start to cry again and the last thing he needs is to see me so upset.

So if you could, spare a prayer or good thoughts for my little boy and for finding a new pediatric office for my babies.  Today was the final straw for us with this one and I’m at a loss as to where to go now.


W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
