Taking a moment to blog, when I really should be cleaning my house right now. It's a wreck! The first reason is because Camden is home with me. (He is napping now.) He has some sort of rash on his bottom, that _may_ be chicken pox... but we haven't determined that yet. Right now, it looks like he sat bare-bottomed in an ant pile. I thought, three days ago, that it was a diaper rash. I've been using balmex with every change, and nothing has changed. Then last night, I went over to my sisters' house to watch The Vagina Monologues with them. When I got home, Joe said Cam was not sleeping good -- that he was tossing and turning. So, he slept with me downstairs. This morning, when we woke up, the bumps on his little booty seemed to have multiplied. So, I gave him an Aveeno bath, and we called the doctor. The doctor told me to get benadryl and cortisone, and wait it out. So we did. Now, he's asleep: (in my t-shirt to let his body breathe, I didn't want him to be cold, but I didn't want to put on pants or shorts... so, he's in my halloween t-shirt.)

So, I have episode 6 of halfway there recorded... however, the program that I use to upload it is telling me that it's in the wrong format. So, I haven't been able to publish it yet. But... if the benadryl allows my little one to sleep a little, (longer), then hopefully today. I'll post the show notes once it's there so you'll know.

Other than that, I'm just trying to survive my day.

Oh, poor thing! I hope he feels better. I would think if it was CP, it would have already popped up elsewhere, too. Hope he's up and about soon - but not until after you've gotten some things done ;)

what a precious photo. i hope that your little one is feeling better, that you get the formatting issues taken care of, and that camden stayed asleep long enough for you to get something done.
