times about 30 in 3 minutes
that was our Nate-Nate this morning. poor guy.
i’ll back up though.
last night = girls night out for me, thus nate and brad had a boys night together. they actually ended up eating out with a friend of brad’s who i don’t think we’ve seen since he was one of brad’s groomsmen. anyways, about 9:15 last night i gave brad a call to let him know i was on my way home. he said that he thought nate might just be allergic to cats. huh? apparently aaron and his wife have a cat, and nate was more than anxious to make friends with it. (not so sure it was quite as excited.) unfortunately, the syptoms of allergic-ness to cats is not enough to discourage a two-year-old from trying to play with one. so he played and had a great time.
back to this morning
30 (+/-) sneezes within minutes of waking up.
i shot out of bed (actually i had moved to the couch about 5:50) and went into wide-awake mommy mode. first, i gave him a dose of claritin. after grabbing a cup of milk, i immediately headed to fill the bathtub. (to scrub off any cat-ness). i also for good measure threw all his bedding into the washer.
he’s been fine ever since the medicine and the bath.
all thoughts of ever possibly having a cat have now left my mind. not worth the misery.
