Poor, Poor Jonah

So the whooping cough thing has been a non-issue for Mommy, Daddy, and me. We are all on the antibiotics and other than some runny noses and a very mild cough, all is well. Jonah is another story. My poor little brother is very stuffed up, a fever, diarrhea (from the antibiotics), and a cough that is not getting worse...but not great either. He had a particularly rough night last night and ended up sleeping on Mommy while she sat on the couch. After a while, she was able to get him to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed. Even then, he tossed and turned. Poor Jonah is not well at all. Hopefully, he'll make a turn for the better soon.

Mommy has been taking advantage of this forced mini-vacation. Although we've lived in our house for a year now, we have never finished unpacking one particular closet. You know. Everyone has one of THOSE closets. Mommy attacked it today and we now have an officially clean closet/storage space in our office. Phew. It was driving Mommy CRAZY! With that off of her "to-do" list, she then did some work for Down syndrome Outreach. She organized some notes, did some follow-up calls, scheduled some events, and even organized her bag. It was an organizational kind of day.

Next on the list is putting up the trim and painting a bathroom. Daddy is going to have lots soon on his "to-do" list if this keeps up! Poor, poor Daddy.

Get better soon Jonah. Mommy might put you to work too!
