The Cough is Back

I Love Watermelon at My Mimi's ad Pa's
I jinxed myself...said several times today to multple people that we've had a healthy summer but now I have to take a step back. Gracie started the night coughs last night. YUCK! So, that means we are now on yellow on our asthma action plan. I have a funny feeling we'll be progressing to orange in the next day or so. I'm praying not. I have to go back to work on Monday. My daughter is totally stressed and tells me to "stay". Then she goes on with "My Momma". We are starting two word sentences which is great. Her favorite words/phrases are, "Mine", "No!" and "My Turn" (which really means it my turn now no matter if she just took her turn). She is going through a "My MiMi and Pa" phase in which she cries hysterically when we leave my parents' house after a visit. I think she's upset because I am going to be leaving her more now at school and she feels like the rug is getting ready to come out from under her. We've had a great summer of bonding. I wish I didn't have to work but as a single mom, I gotta. Maybe I need to start playing the lottery.

Hang in there! I do play the lottery....every time we are out of state as UT has no gambling but- we haven't won and I still have to work:(

Hope the transition is not too difficult. I kept Mila in daycare all summer which will help with us transitioning but- she's used to getting there very late/getting picked up early which won't happen once the semester begins (Aug 23rd)- ugh!
