Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday dear meeeeeee, Happy Birthday to me! No seriously, today is my birthday, and I love my birthday! I've grown up always knowing that my birthday was a special day to celebrate me, and I love that, and I want to have my boys know that their birthdays are special days as well.
Normally, I will get together with my mom, and we usually travel to somewhere for some shopping and a good lunch. Well, Graedon had a different plan. I took him to the doctor yesterday because he woke up with a fever and telling me that his ears hurt. So, I took him in, and the doctor made me feel like I didn't know what I was talking about. He looked in his ears, and then looked at me and said, "His ears are fine and to just treat the fever with tylenol." He also said to not let the fever last longer than 5 days. I left there with a sick feeling in my stomach because I knew that he had an ear infection. My boys don't get fevers for no reason. So, all night he ran fever, and was so sad and lifeless. I couldn't get it to break. So, neither one of us got any sleep. So, I got up this morning, and I called my friend that is a nurse practitioner. She said she could see him today, and you know what, he has an ear infection. My poor
Graedon. He was sick, and I knew it, but the pediatrician just blew me off. I want to call and let them know about it, but I am just not sure what to say. Got any ideas?
Anyway, my birthday started off a little rough, but I am a mommy first, but by lunchtime, I was out at the Olive Garden with my mom and the boys. We did a little shopping, and then made it to my birthday dinner at Tokyo Japanese steakhouse. It was delish! It was a great ending to my golden birthday. Thank you to my awesome family that celebrated with me today! I love you all, and I wouldn't want to celebrate any other way. Below are a few pics at the steakhouse. One more year until the big 3-0!
