Beware the ides of March

It’s been a long Winter — I’ve addressed that earlier. And since it’s the half-way point of the month of March (beware) we’ve seen a taste of spring!! And with that we’ve seen Theodore improve greatly! Well, minus the time change thing… he seems to be happier, a bit more relaxed, and glad he doesn’t … Continue reading

Daylight Savings Time is…

Yes, #DST hit the Triplet household hard. Two things: Oh Gretchen woke up SWINGING Sunday morning. Yes, she stayed up late (two nights in a row actually) and MAN was she having NOTHING Sunday morning. Picking fight, after fight. Thank goodness the weather was pleasant and she got outside… And, the DAY after… Theodore, my … Continue reading

Longest Winter Ever

Every year I think this will be the winter of Theo’s contentment. So far, it hasn’t worked. Yet. The “dis” in the discontent makes itself known in mid-December and grabs any shred of optimism left in my bones and shakes it to the ground. Again this year The Boss has had one heck of a … Continue reading

Finally, DVD Free Night

So, as you may have heard, Theo has been under the weather off and on since November and we’re adjusting his meds… Today not only did we have a rare moment of (shhhhh I hate to even write it) quiet. But today was the first DVD-free day since November! When he is not feeling well, … Continue reading

“Is There Anything You Don’t Do?”

He was joking. He was. But I wasn’t in the mood.   I haven’t been in the mood for a while. You see, my poor Theo, who had suffered from a ridiculous five-week stomach ailment, then a week-long bout of tonsillitis, had been an enormous handful since Thanksgiving. Yes, that is correct. He’s been sick … Continue reading

#WordlessWednesday #Bath

Bath time is important, especially on nights like tonight… the three-day-time-change-bomb seemed to hit right after dinner when I couldn’t figure out what Theo wanted and the Boss, well, couldn’t seem to figure out what he wanted. Good news is he did better, and he enjoyed a bath. And now he’s in bed. Hopefully for … Continue reading

Dental Visit: Code Orange

So it’s been a few up and down days with the Boss and my anxiety hit the roof because we were due for, oh lawrd, a visit to the dentist. Now the Boss has long had MANY problems with his teeth. Basically, with anything head-related in general it’s a mess. He can’t tell us what is … Continue reading

The Blood Draw

With the medications Theodore is on to regulate his moods, and to help with sleep, we need an occasional blood draw. Today was the day. I made the appointment last week to go to Oneida Healthcare. It’s where we went last time with little fuss (and it was where I heard Theodore say NO repeatedly, and … Continue reading

Been Stung, and Survived

Yesterday, while the kiddos and I were out playing in the backyard, I made the careless mistake of putting my flip-flops on, instead of my sneakers. I had a long morning run (10 miles) and it was just gorgeous and sunny and Theo really, REALLY, wanted to get outside. So to appease the Boss I just … Continue reading
