Holidays & Turkey Time

I like the holidays. I know some people LOVE the holidays but my son is not interested yet. We're going to see "Santa" tomorrow. (My oldest brother is dressing up for our community this year!)
I hope he doesn't freak but I'm sure he will. My son is two and his sister is 4 months and two weeks old and she has a wicked staph infection on her bum. Oh scratch that, she has MRSA and her bum which she developed from a staph infection we have been sharing but weren't in full acceptance of (on my part).
She's on antibiotics but it's a bummer. My son had horrific eczema. His skin literally melted off his face when he was her age and I couldn't heal him no matter how much breast milk I squirted on him! Funny coincidence-he was allergic to it all along...dumb mommy was poisoning her own baby.
So with my daughter's infected buns, I'm taking it one day at a time. I just read www.dooce.com and Armstrong totally summed it up for me. Granted, their dad comes from a family of 15 and he's the younger twin, we're still learning how to kick @ss and take names...MRSA better hope we don't get our ducks in a row anytime soon.
