Big Pharma 7, our family 0

Here at our little abode, we've long been a dream family for pharmaceutical companies, since several of us take daily prescription meds. But last week we were laid low by 3 cases of strep throat, and the amount of medicine I dispense daily is just ridiculous. I thought it was time for a scorecard:

Daily meds as of 4/20/2009
Mom- 1
James- 2
Total: 7, given once, twice, and three times a day.

I did not count Bowzer's monthly heart and flea meds, nor the ibuprofin, nyquil, and benadryl the kids have taken this week. Serriously, we went through two bottles of liquid ibuprofin, a box of children's tylenol, and many pills of ibuprofin, Nyquil, Dayquil, and Benadryl. Almost every hour I was walking up to some child with a glass of water and a pill or tablespoon.

The good news? Everyone is now back in school!

Also- Dad is the winner of our award for never giving up on our blog! He was the first to notice we had begun posting again! Yay Dad!
