Oopsie Poopsie

Isaak woke up from his nap soaking wet! Soaking! I changed his diaper immediately and I reached over to our diaper basket and it was empty. I hate having to go into the backroom and get new diapers because I seem to always be freezing and its cold in that room. Isaak pulled his little pants back up and I told him. If you have to pee or poopy let me know. He said, "okay mommy." I start heading to the backroom to get a package of diapers and the phone rings. I start talking, then I realize that it's already 5:30 and I need to hurry and finish dinner up. Isaak decides he wants to play upstairs.

Your second question might be--why in the world did you put Isaak on steroids and to this I say--I just wanted him to bulk up a bit. He's a little scrawny. I'm kidding. He's been sick a lot and after we got the chest xray and some treatments our little Isaak was diagnosed with asthma. I struggled with this for several days.…
