"Izzat Mine?"

Samuel has been in the “Mine” phase lately, except he says, “Izzat my (insert toy here)?” So whenever Levi starts playing with something he wants, he’ll grab it from Levi and look at me and with a frustrated tone say, “Izzat my truck (or whatever)?” so that I can’t get mad at him, because afterall, it’s his, right? He usually does get reminded that it’s nice to share even if something is his. And he usually gets time-out if his “Izzat mine?” is accompanied by a push or a hit.

So yesterday I was letting Samuel roam the house nude in an effort to get him to go to the potty (he only wants to go in his diaper). He didn’t, of course, but it was a great setup for something funny to happen. So I’m laying on the couch because I’m sick. Samuel’s laying belly-down on the floor beside the couch. And Levi’s wandering around. Levi starts trying to climb up on the couch with me, and he's using Samuel’s butt as a step-stool. Samuel turns angrily around and says, “Izzat my butt?” Oh man, I lost it. Hilarious.

Flu Fear

So I didn’t get flu vaccines for us this year. One thing led to another, and February was here. It wasn’t total irresponsibility that led to my neglect of the vaccine; it was mostly fear. Most of you parents know what I mean. You do your research on whether or not to get a vaccine for you and your kids (breastfeeding complicates things, too). You see valid points for and against it. And you get frozen there in indecision.

So none of us got the flu vaccine this year. And now I have the flu. And it sucks.

Next year I should be in fear of getting the damn flu (and get the vaccine).
