Growing up

Wow...we just got the call. Our offer has been accepted. We are buying a house -- closing mid-April. And we made the decision logically.

This house is not necessarily our "dream house." But it has what we need. It has a better lot than houses that look more like what we have always thought we wanted. A nice big yard, plenty of room to run around, on the corner in a quiet neighborhood. Lots of other kids nearby. In a good school district. The house is 7 years old so everything is still very new -- nice kitchen that needs no work (not necessarily exactly the cabinets/counters I would have picked if it were me, but they are nice and new and definitely not bad at all), the basement has been beautifully finished with cable run for a nice family/play room. Three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 2 car garage, security system. It's the kind of house that we need for the lowercase to be safe, to have room to run (if he ever decides to give that walking thing a second chance -- he did it a few weeks ago and apparently decided crawling is better as he's refused to do it again).

I feel like such a grown-up! More so than when my son was born -- I kind of feel that having him was an act of selfishness on my part. It was me wanting to have a child FOR ME...not for him. But this decision? This decision was made entirely based on what would be the best for him. And I couldn't be happier. Strange that I finally feel like I'm really an adult 5 months before I turn 30...an age that I had always considered to be "middle aged." Strange how the perspective changes.

Also...thanks to those of you who were concerned about the lowercase's fever. It went away by Thursday night last week...and was replaced by a horrible rash all over his stomach/back. Apparently that's the way his body reacts to certain viruses -- after the worst is over, he breaks out in a rash. Looked horrible, but the doctor assured me that it in no way bothered him, wasn't contagious and wasn't a sign of anything worse. Also, the switch to Motrin from Tylenol helped drop the fever lower and made him much more comfortable while he was sick.

Congrats on the house--it sounds perfect for y'all :-)

I also want to say thanks for all of your kind words and thoughts these past few weeks. It really meant a lot to me to know that strong, wonderful women like you were thinking of us across the miles. It helped make things that much more bearable, as I'm sure you can imagine.
Congratulations! How wonderful. Now the packing! Ha Ha

Glad to hear the lowercase is feeling better.
Glad He's feeling better!

My DD#1 broke out in hives every time she got a sore throat. and we are not talking a little bit of itchy hives we are talkinglooks like someone beat her huge hives. Only kid I know that had to take benadryl for a sore throat. She outgrew ti and about that time developed an allergy to sulfa drugs that she still has today.
