"Can we paint my toenails?"

Mickey wanted to play outside this afternoon, but it was getting ready to thunderstorm, so we couldn't go outside.  She was having a fit about it, as she had been extremely whiny all day and yesterday too - even moreso than usual!  She had asked me this morning if I would paint her toenails today and I said I would, but that it would have to be later.  Mickey still doesn't get the concept of later, because every time I tell her that, she says, "No! Today!"  LOL  So, I painted Mickey's toes in a cute pinky purple and she wanted lots of colors on her hands.  So cute!  Then she sat and talked to me while I painted my toes! The last time they were painted I was in the hospital on bedrest and my sister in law painted them for me - it was around Mickey and I's birthday!  So just about a year.  Long overdue.  We had fun.  :-)

Then around 5, just after the doctors office closed, I discovered why Mickey was so whiny!  She had a fever of 102.2.  Poor Mickey!  She wasn't feeling good.  MORE SICKIES!  I'm so over it.  Now I am the only one to not get it.  Fingers crossed I can keep healthy!

Carly and Callie are feeling much better now.  I am giving them probiotics in their yogurt every morning which seems to be helping with the diarrhea (don't get me wrong, Callie is still having multiple blowouts a day, they just aren't as watery and bad for her bum now!  LOL) and Callie's hiney looks MUCH better.  Still not 100% perfect, but a LOT better than it did.  She doesn't scream with diaper changes anymore.  That was so pitiful.  Carly is teething hard core - her top left tooth has broke through and the right one isn't far behind.  They both have super swollen gums, but it doesn't seem to be bothering Callie so much.  They are back to playing - crawling all over the place (thank goodness I have 2 gates now so I can at least keep them out of the kitchen!  LOL) and pulling up on everything.

They wore their first set of "Big Sister/Little Sister" shirts today!  It totally cracks me up that Carly is the "big" sister since she is much smaller!  hehe  On a side note, trying to get a picture of them sitting together now and is damn near IMPOSSIBLE!  LOL

1 week until Mickey's 4th birthday!  I can hardly believe my baby is going to be 4 already.  Time sure does fly.  This means it is 1 week until I am 34!!  I still can't believe I had her on my 30th birthday.  Crazy!  So, I am birthday shopping and party planning.  She is having a strawberry themed birthday party this year because she is obsessed with strawberries this year!  :-)

Mike made a point to try to get home "early" tonight (meaning he was here around 6:30 versus 8 or 9 like usual) so I could go to Zumba.  My girl Jessica is the instructor on Wednesday nights so he knows I really wanted to try to make it at least tonight.  So I got to go do some much need booty shakin' and calorie burnin! YAY!  Here is my golden ticket, even though it's orange!  LOL  (You have to get tickets early for the evening classes because it is so popular and they only have so many spots.)

I'll leave you with some lyrics from one of the songs in her class.  It's the song "Let's Get Loud" by Jennifer Lopez.

"If you wanna live your life
 Live it all the way and don't you waste it 
Every feelin' every beat
Can be so very sweet you gotta taste it
You gotta do it, you gotta do it your way"
