Terrible 2

Nora is getting over an ear infection. She's been snotty and miserable for the last week or so. Last week she had a fever and we finally took her in Sat. evening to the after hours clinic. She had an ear infection of course. SO getting her to take her medicine has become a challenge. She is spitting EVERYTHING out. She won't eat anything and hiding her medications is a nightmare. I had to take her back in on Tues. to see if it was better and she threw the biggest fit ever. I thought she was going to break my nose she was bucking and fighting so hard. I don't know if it is part of the "terrible twos" or just a new behavior she has decided to pick up. Or it may even be a side effect of the anti seizure med we are trying to put her on. Maybe it is making her aggressive. Who knows. We see her neurologist tomorrow so maybe we'll get some answers.

She is having issues at school too because her schedule changed on M/W 12:30-2:30 which is NOT a good time for her. (she should be napping) She gets really mad if they make her do stuff she doesn't want to do and on top of that, she has a new teacher this quarter who doesn't know her yet. So all around a pleasant experience for all of us.

Emma started FULL Day preschool this week. She seems to like it and has transitioned just fine. I think it will be good for her to have more social time with her friends and maybe start doing more activities besides art at "work time". It gives me more time between shuttling everyone around town which is nice too.

Emma is also starting ski lessons tomorrow. Alex will take her Sat. afternoons. It will be a good father/daughter bonding time. He's going to miss the Seahawks/Packer game. We'll have to DVR it for him.

Hope all is well
