An allergy mom’s day
Get up – non-school day
Get Tinleigh out of bed. Change her and get her dressed.
Make her elemental bottle
Get Gage’s formula made and get him hooked up
Make Charlie some breakfast
Start thinking about dinner
start thinking about finding a recipe to bake for Tinleigh today
Decide to do THIS blog today
Scan fridge in hopes of getting a spark for dinner.
Decide to clean out a few things that are too old to be eaten
Tried to google a ground pork and ramon noodle recipe for Charlie. He only recently got to try pork ramon noodles and loves them. So I’m thinking his dinner will be some ground pork tossed in and done. Maybe I’ll toss in a few veggies as well. One dinner planned!
Nathan and I will have beef and noodles. mmmmm Two dinners done!
Ok onto Tinleigh.
Oh maybe there’s a hippy food store nearby that has millet in the grain form and I can make her “oatmeal”. That’s what we use to call it for Gage. hmmm more googling. (hippy is not a word in my word press dictionary lol)
Found a Trader Joes. It’s a 30 min drive though. Maybe tomorrow if the boys go fishing T and I will head that way. If not then today it is! Texting Nathan
Still need a recipe to make her something, she isn’t drinking her formula this morning.
Made Charlie more breakfast
pour more coffee
Tinleigh isn’t drinking her elemental this morning. Grrrrrrrrr Time for some squeeze pouches. Hey Plum, Sprout and Gerber want to send me some Tinleigh safe samples, there’s only two or three of each brand she can have!!!! Or lower your prices please.
Noticed Tinleighs eyes are swollen and red underneath. Called Nathan. Called allergist. Called friend. Posted on EoE fb page asking could it be fish. Waiting on allergist to call back. Went ahead and gave her Benadryl. (this killed an hour)
Tinleigh pooped normal!! YAY
I put some clothes on. Should probably eat something it’s almost noon.
Time for some lunch for Tinleigh and down for nap. She’s yawning from the Benadryl.
Tinleigh down for nap with formula
Allergist called – try fish again tomorrow. Eyes more than likely not related.
Ran back upstairs and gave Tinleigh her slurry meds. Almost asleep and didn’t drink any of her formula. :/
12:45pm Made Charlie grilled cheese and sliced up a giant apple. Gage isn’t hungry and it’s not time to hook him up. I warmed up some leftover pizza for myself. Time to rest this baby making body for a little bit.
2-1/2 hours after starting the boys are still doing play-doh. I love that stuff
Gage got hungry and had one of his rice flour cinnamon sugar pancakes and black olives
cleaned the kitchen and got the beef shredded
Gage wants more pancakes
Tinleigh woke up
Gave her a couple popsicles
I cleaned up a bit under their table
Called insurance company
Changed Tinleigh’s diaper
Got the noodles into the beef with the rest of the ingredients
Crap forgot to get out the ground pork for Charlie’s dinner
Thought – need to feed Ron the lizard
Made a new EoE mom friend on FB
Fed Ron’s crickets
Gage chowed down two pancakes.
Made a pitcher of iced tea
Thought about a snack
Checked on Tinleigh
Ate a greek yogurt
Got Gage an orange
Kept cleaning kitchen
Neighbor boys knocked on the door. After 6-1/2 hours the play-doh came to an end
Hey Play-doh – if you need a couple of test subjects for new product I’ve got your men!!!
I cleaned up the remaining play-doh after the boys were done cleaning
Cleaned up Tinleigh’s dinner
Started making Charlie’s dinner
Crap pork smelled sour
Quick think!! What else can he have
Sliced tomatoes and black olives
Handed Tinleigh more formula
Sat the rest of Gage’s pancake and orange in front of him
6:30 Nathan gets home
Gave Tinleigh more formula – it’s a 2oz bottle
Had my 50th debate with Charlie that snipes aren’t real, they don’t feed on apple cores, they don’t change color like a chameleon and they aren’t out during the day. Lastly, salt water does not kill them.
Took Tinleigh outside
Brought Tinleigh in
Sat and talked to Nathan for 15 min while he let her have POP!
Threw TInleigh in the tub then in bed with her formula bottle
Nathan started making our potatoes for our dinner
Threw Gage in the shower
Sent Charlie to the shower
Got Gage hooked up and gave him a snack of Rice Dream ice cream.
Checked on Charlie
Gave Tinleigh her slurry after drinking her bottle
Hooked Gage up for a breathing treatment
Made Charlie a bowl of ice cream
Got my dinner plate
Scrolled through pinterest
Unhooked Gage and put the boys to bed
Finished up the dishes
That was my day.
I’ll sit, relax and watch tv for a few hours then crash.
Yes I did type this throughout the entire day not to miss anything. When does she clean you may ask. I clean while the boys are at school. That’s when I also run errands. It was a very typical day for us with all kids home, aside from the play-doh marathon. Usually the boys would be outside playing. No major allergy attacks. My heart did skip a beat when Gage yelled “Tinleigh ate some play-doh!!!” She was fine though. Play-doh contains wheat. She didn’t like it thankfully. Do you eat dinner that late every night? Yes, typically it’s after all kids are in bed.
I will sleep like a baby tonight.
