On Thursday Junior had a Tae Kwon Do graduation ceremony so that he is now a Camo belt. This means he gets to do real sparring, with gear. I was hoping to find a picture but you will have to wait until we order it. They have a foam helmet thing, a chest protector, feet protectors and hand protectors. They look like they have been dipped in foam.
Anyway, he is so thrilled and excited . . . and he couldn't go today.
You see, my little boy who is never sick. He had his 3rd round of antibiotics in his life just 6 weeks ago is now on his 4th. Sunday he woke up complaining that his throat hurt. Since the rest of us are having sinus problems, I assumed that is what it was.
Little Dude has strep throat again. Since we weren't planning on going anywhere this week, it isn't a huge deal. Not like last time where he came down with strep 3 or 4 days before we left to travel halfway across the country.

We survived Daisy being on to camp for a whole week. Ok it was technically Monday to Friday but we still missed her. Alot. She missed us not so much. She had a wonderful time and came home exhausted.
Junior was at his Meme and Papa's house so Daisy and I went to the Tea Room. It is someplace that Junior wouldn't like - words like bull in a china shop come to mind - but Daisy loves it. It is a little pricy because we each get our own dessert and then share, plus the meal is about $8 a person but it is a special thing we do on the rare occasion so it's worth it. The last time we did it was 3 years ago.
So she and I had some girl talk, and talked about camp, and boys, and camp. It was really nice to be able to do that with her.
But now we are stuck at home with Strep-Boy for a couple of days. The Dr made an odd comment about it. He said "He isn't at the point to need a tonsillectomy yet. We like to wait until it is 4 streps in 6 months."
I wasn't thinking of a tonsillectomy. The Boy has had 2 strep infections in his life and he is 6. I don't think he needs surgery. I am not real sure I will think he needs surgery after his 4th in 6 months.
Now Daisy had ear infections and we had tubes put in but that was because she would have it come back after only a few days off the antibiotic. After 4 or 5 months of that they finally did tubes. Her teeth are permanently stained from all the antibiotics but she was also much younger.
But I am nowhere near wanting Junior to have a tonsillectomy.
