Strep or No Strep and Proud Mom Moment

So Mr. ESPN took Chatty Cathy to the Dr. this morning and they swabbed for Strep. Quick test came back negative. We have to call in tomorrow to get the results of the overnight test ... I never knew they had two tests. Our favorite neighbor J had strep last week so I wouldn't be totally surprised if she had it (and his didn't show up until the overnight test). All in all Chatty Cathy was more like normal today ... talking non-stop and bugging her dad. We met Nana and Poppa (my parents) for dinner. It was my mom's birthday today. Chatty Cathy was supposed to spend the night at their house tonight and go to the movies with them tomorrow but it is postponed until after my in-laws visit (which begins Saturday) since she has been sick. Needless to say she wasn't too thrilled with the postponement.

Something funny - actually embarrassing happened at dinner - it reminded Mr. ESPN and I why we don't take our children out to dinner much. Bia (who used to be the calm quite child) was the wild child (luckily for us Chatty Cathy was mellow due to illness tonight) at dinner tonight and Nana and Poppa laughed at all her antics - just what she was looking for! Anyway the kicker was when she screamed for a baby wipe to clean her feet at the table. Seriously - she took her Crocs off and cleaned her feet! If I wasn't her mom I would have laughed hysterically (like my parents) but all I could do was roll my eyes and tell my mom and at least she has some funny stories to tell my Granny next time she talks to her! Talk about proud mom moment!

I hope CC is feeling better. At least she has clean feet?! Connor tells me every morning that he needs to take a bath because he has stinky feet. I told him that one time because he was wearing a certain pair of boots with out socks and now he thinks his feet stink the second he puts on any shoes!
