Hey loves last week was a trying one for my household. I was alarmed on Tuesday night when the hubs brought P home from daycare to learn that his infant room had an outbreak of Hands Foot Mouth disease. I have never even heard of such a virus so I immediately called his pediatrician and took him the very next morning. HFMD is a cold virus that comes with an nasty rash of blisters on the hands feet mouth and sometimes buttocks. Unfortunately he was one of the seven babies in his class affected so I just kept him home because it is contagious as my pediatrician recommended. It always sucks when your baby gets sick and as a first time mom hearing the word 'disease' freaked me out a bit. I just wanted my baby to be healthy. I know that we can't protect him from every single strain or virus while sending him to daycare but I definitely try to maintain a clean household and wash hands often, you can only hope everyone else is doing the same at their home. Luckily Phoenix was a champ and wasn't too irritable because of this so we managed to have some fun while he was home from school. Have you ever heard of this virus?
On another note I ventured to Once Upon a Child in Kennesaw on Saturday to sell our Snap N Go stroller since my husband switched him to a convertible car seat and we no longer have a need for it. I picked up this cute LeapFrog Learning Band walker while there for $12 bucks! It was in great condition and had working batteries, got to love that. I liked this walker over the others because it is heavy and has a wide base; which helps with your babies balance. Phoenix is 8 months old now and well on his way to being a wobbly walker pretty soon. I think it is so cute when they walk with their arms out like a zombie to balance themselves lol
We also went to Lakeshore learning store after getting my eyebrows threaded at Hair Images. I have never previously been in that store but since I was right next door I figured we would check it out. They have SO much fun stuff in there for kids and it is all geared towards learning. I told my husband we should go there for our Christmas shopping. When I saw the cash register it brought back memories of my sister and I playing 'shopping', we would get things from around the house and use change as our cash, the ironing board was the check out counter lol #childhood memories
Hope you ladies had a great weekend! Wasn't that rain crazy in Atlanta yesterday wowzers
