Our house is back to normal...loud and crazy normal that is. The older two boys have spent the last week alternating at their grandparents house and oh how glorious it was. Lucas got the first part of the week from when he got out of school last Thursday until Monday night when all stars started and then Jacob went from Monday until yesterday afternoon. It wasn't 10 minutes after Jacob was home but the chaos ensued. I figured out while he was gone that a large majority of the problems that we've been having around here stem from him. I've called him my Dennis the Menace for a while now but seriously each and everyday he grows more and more into that name. He lives to get into something that he's not supposed to. When he wasn't here Lucas was well behaved and calm,Caleb was calm and wasn't getting into trouble but when they were all three back together the volcano erupted again. In order to get everything calm to a certain degree I really think the answer lies in how we manage his behavior. At least it's clear and now we just have to figure out how to do it :)
Allie is still pretty fussy. She isn't running a fever anymore though so that's a good thing. She also has a tooth coming in at the same time as all of this other stuff so I'm sure that is just making things more difficult for her. She has wanted nothing more than for me to hold her for the last 5 days.....I've obliged :) I hear that once the rash starts that the worst part is over though so I'm looking for a non fussy day soon! On the other hand she's as cute as ever!!! Think she's comfortable? This is where she ends up every morning!
