Seems like I have been pretty busy lately and haven’t had time to sit down and write a post. Friday Brian and I met with a financial planner and talked about what we should be saving for retirement and the kids’ college. And we also discussed life insurance options too. It is funny that since I work in this industry I hear these figures on a daily basis but Brian was quite shocked by how much we need to be saving in an IRA and/or 401K to have enough money to retire on. It was also a good time to talk about what would happen if one of us or both of us should pass away. Who would we want to take care of the kids and how would we like to leave our money and other assets to them. We pretty much already had it set in our minds who would take the kids, we just need to make it official and have a will drawn up.
Friday afternoon I got the pleasure of taking a lasagna to a friend who had a baby at the end of February. So cute and it just makes me ache to hold our little boy even more! If I wasn’t pregnant it for sure would have made me spike a baby fever!!!
Speaking of fevers, Lauren has been under the weather. Poor little thing has had quite the go over the past few days with the flu. She has never been sick like this so it was a new experience for the both of us. She woke me up early on Sunday morning by puking in her bed and then on ours. It was on Brian’s side so that was a bit funny until about an hour later and she did it on my side of the bed in much more abundance than she had on his. :) Serves me right for thinking it was funny. So we spent the majority of Sunday washing and changing her clothes. Wouldn’t you know that it was my weekend to work and good thing that my mom doesn’t have a weak stomach and was ok with still watching her while I went to work. BLESS HER!! For getting the majority of the pukes out of the way before I got home. By the time I got home the puking had stopped but she was running a fever that went well on into the night and then woke up yesterday morning good to go. I was relieved that she was feeling better but I still took the day off work to let her rest at home and not infect any other kids at day care if she was still contagious. I just hope that no one else gets it now. I had it like 6 weeks ago and was so relieved that neither her or Brian got it so I hope that Brian and my mom dodge the bullet again and don’t come down with it.
Tonight I am looking forward to Mom's Night Out with a wonderful group of ladies!!
