I need some tips from some experienced mothers. How do you get your babies to take their medicine? Yesterday, my baby was diagnosed with his first ear infections, one in each ear :'(. In the past, giving him medicine hasn’t been a problem and he would drink it right down. But, he is determined this thick, sticky white antibiotic is the last thing he is going to swallow. I’ve tried rationalizing and talking it through with him, telling him it will make him feel better. Apparently, feverish five-month olds are not the most rational creatures on the planet….

What kinds of Saturdays are your favorite? We have had a lovely series of Saturdays the past few weeks that have all been different, yet wonderful in their own way. Last weekend was our sister’s wedding which was filled with lots of exciting time with family, fun preparation work and a beautiful ceremony and reception. This Saturday was so much calmer and we worked around the yard and house in the sunny, warm weather, working on projects and tidying up the landscaping for spring. It was a quiet day that gave us a sense of peace and accomplishment.

I’ve totally lost all confidence in the weather men ’round these parts. Sometimes they way over-predict the snow. Like last week when they called for 8 inches and we ended up with less than a centimeter. And then on the other side of it they totally have missed two storms. Last night I was driving home from work in blowing snow and watching the car in front of me slide all over the road. The longer I followed him, the more I realized that he was doing it on purpose.
