This week...ugh

This has been the kind of week where mom not being here makes things suck even more. No, not because of Christmas (I'll get to that) but because of life things that I want her comfort and advice for.

I have bronchitis. It sucks. I've never had it before. It's not like it's a super big deal, but it would be nice to have my mommy. I'm trying to drink a lot of fluids and take the cough medicine every four hours, but I'd love to hear her suggestions on how to make the cough feel not so horrible.

Gabe has been using the potty now for at least two weeks. It's so awesome! Well, except for the fact that he won't poop anymore. He has gone on the potty so I'm not sure what exactly is stopping him now. We have tried giving him a warm bath and we even are telling him he can have candy if he poops. But he is holding steady. We gave him a few chewable laxative things, but they haven't truly worked. I don't want to give him an enema. Sometimes we can barely wipe his butt because he gets so upset, how can I give him an enema??

So, it's silly things like a mom's advice that I'm missing most lately. I hope you guys aren't getting tired of all of the mom posts. I hope everyone had a great Christmas!
