It's time to celebrate Momukkah

You know you're singing the Adam Sandler song...
So here is a holiday worth looking into. My pediatrician (that I've been seeing a lot of lately, unfortunately) was telling me that in his family they celebrate Momukkah. The week before his wife's birthday, they do something every night to celebrate her, like Hanukkah, but you don't have to be a certain religion, and it's only for moms - how great is that!! And then on the actual day they do something special.
Let me tell you, after the week and a half my family has had, I could use a good Momukkah celebration. We have pulled a Cori and been to the doctor 4 times in 6 days (Adam and Jack both went on Wed., and well, the office isn't open on the weekends, or we probably would have been there). Jack is to the point in his illness where he is getting better; how do I know this...his cough is getting looser, which means he coughs so much he throws up. Yesterday it was all over him and his carseat, while we were on our way to work and then again at the dinner table. Today, no actual puke-age, just some gagging after a coughing fit. How do you tell a 3 year old boy to calm down and take deep breaths and it will help his cough?
I picked Thornley up from school yesterday and he greeted me with, "I think I need to go to the doctor, my ear hurts." Yep, ear infection!
The upside of my kids being sick, they sit on the couch and watch tv, so my house if fairly clean (save the melted popsicle on the family room floor - going to mop that up when the boys are in bed) and I've caught up on my laundry (it's all washed, just waiting to be folded, which will happen during Big Brother - maybe).
Time for a breathing treatment for Jack and a beer for me!
Happy Momukkah to me!!
