First and foremost I need to mention that Elliott threw up about 3 inches from my head at 1 am this morning. I was going to put a picture of him right here (in case you forgot what he looks like) but the poor, neglected child hasn't been photographed since Sunday, so I can't. I'll make sure to take at least 46 pictures of him tomorrow.
I wanted to mention it because it is the first time, ever, that he has thrown up. I think that's pretty remarkable. I mean, he nearly died from sepsis and his liver failed in most of its function for a while, but until 1 am this morning he had never thrown up. He's also never had an ear infection. And I most certainly insured he will have an ear infection by next week by saying that. He's also only had two fevers in his whole life. One that he spiked (103 degrees) when he had sepsis and one for half a day last September when he had a little virus.
He wasn't even sick. He actually sneezed, coughed and hiccuped at the same time in his sleep. He gagged himself and then threw up all over the pillows. It didn't even wake him up. I, however, was wide awake and then Michael and I tag teamed the situation to get him and the bedding cleaned up.
Let's move on to my bargain shopping.
I stopped at Kohl's on Tuesday afternoon because I had a $5 Kohl's cash to spend. Usually I go into Kohl's with my $5 Kohl's cash and leave having spent $50, but saving that all important $5.
This time, however, was so magnificent that I'm writing a blog post about it.
I found this little number.
Original price: $54.00
Sale price: $5.40
Plus tax: $5.43
Minus Kohl's Cash: 43 cents
I bought a shirt for 43 cents!
This week has been teacher appreciation week. We haven't given Spencer's teacher anything all week. #1. She was at a conference on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and I just didn't feel it was necessary to send stuff to her if she wasn't even there. #2. I just didn't get anything planned or ready for today.
But, we will redeem ourselves with this baby tomorrow.
I bought this fun little jar at Kirkland's.
Then I printed out this cute little printable and Spencer wrote a letter on the other side of it. We put it in the jar with a Starbucks gift card.
I think anybody, teacher or not, would enjoy this!
