a day of surprises... and not the fun kind!

i think that today's entry is more for therapy reasons than anyone else's need to know. So thanks for letting me spill all.... i took both kids to bible study this morning. Allie went kicking and screaming - which is not normal, but i assumed we were experiencing some almost two attitude. As we walked into her class she latched onto my leg with huge tears pouring down her cheeks. As i was trying to convince her that it would be fun and that that "dolly over there needs a stroller ride" caleb leaked liquid poop down my back side. i know, you're thinking a line of poop or a little spot. oh, no... not even close - it was more like a 9 inch puddle of poo.

so... what is a mom to do???
1. caleb took a bath in the church sink

2. he went back to his class in just a diaper (it just couldn't be a day that i had the extra change of clothes in the car)

3. i washed my shirt and put it back on wet

4. walk into bible study smelling something awful and apologized over and over

5. on the return drive home, all three of us cried at some point

we finally got home and i thought that the drama of the day was over, but sadly... no!

caleb crashed from exhaustion and i started making allie lunch. she was doing ok until she ate some pineapple. you would have thought that she lost a limb the way she started crying. upon examination, i realized that she had a penny sized sore on her tongue.

you guessed it... off to the doctor... where we got the news that she has a virus and there is no medication for the five sores in her mouth... just tylenol and TLC.

so there you have it! we are all worn out and hoping that allie sleeps through the night! His mercies are new every day! Thank goodness.
