The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

No break

I wish I had some great post of how relaxing it is down here in Gulf Shores. Instead, I will give a brief synopsis of today:

Woke up at 5 to Reese barking like a seal.
Wrapped him up and went out on the balcony. (The sunrise was quite pretty though.)
Mom and I Found a urgent care place in Gulf Shores.
Got there and it was closed!!!
Drove north to Foley.
Found a walk in place there.
Got a prescription for a steriod.
Came back for naps.
Mom and Dad were awesome to listen for the boys during nap while I went down the the pool. Two trips into a steamed up bathroom to get Reese to breathe better.
After a small time for him to play, mom and I packed up and went to the emergency room in Foley.
Breathing Treatment with child that thinks we are trying to make him breathe in fire.
Chest and neck X-rays. (for those of you who have had a chest x-ray of your 1 year old-you can feel my pain)
More steriods.
Come back to condo 4 hours later than when we left.
Reese sleeping with me tonight.

.......after all..... tomorrow is another day :)
