Everyone Knock on Wood

We are on the mend in the Mathis household. Even though we are all still coughing and hacking, things have been improving. Caleb still has a low grade fever, but he hasn't had to take any Motrin or Tylenol since Friday. I always worry about what all that medication does to his body.

Jes has been laughing at me lately, more than normal, because when anyone gets sick in our house, you will find me with a can of Lysol in one hand and a bottle of some sort of Clorox product in the other disinfecting every tiny thing in the house. At this point, every light switch, door knob, toy, countertop, sheet, pillow, pillowcase, and I'm sure other things I can't remember are as germ free as this mama can get them. All those years of studying bacteria and viruses and other nasty things and what they can do to you have turned me into somewhat of a germaphobe at times.

One of the best things to happed lately with Caleb involves his ever changing sleep situation. For 2 years things have been in constant flux as to where, how well and how long he sleeps. For the past couple of weeks he has been in his bed all night long. Not just until 3 or 4, but we're talking 6 or 7am here. Who knew that at 2 years of age we would finally be experiencing what it was like to have a kid sleep through the night. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself!
