(Leah, you will probably appreciate this post.)
Brooks, Dad, and I were down at the beach today and Brooks said he had to go to the bathroom. I told him he would just have to go do it in the ocean. He looked at me funny. He hasn't had too many chances to go tee-tee outside in his lifetime. (Maybe he has been to sheltered.) Anyway, so dad walked with him down to the water. I looked up and saw Brooks in the process of pulling down his bathing suit!!! Note to self: Explain fully each step in how to go potty in the ocean, including the phrase "Do not pull your pants down."
Reese has progressed to the productive cough now, which is better in terms of what stage he is in this sickness, but he is still pitiful. His eyes get real red underneath them when he gets sick, so he really looks bad right now. He is slowly making the turn toward getting better. Thanks for all your sweet comments!
