Allergies and a New Bed!

We no sooner get off the plane and home before Riley's allergies came back with a vengeance. By dinnertime Friday night she was already sniffling and had a runny nose. Sheridan's symptoms followed shortly thereafter. This continued through the entire weekend and their first day of school when I finally decided that they couldn't suffer anymore. We were able to get in to see the allergist on Monday evening who determined that the girls both have hay fever allergies. They would be "cured" with Singulair for kids. It's only been about 28 hours and after 2 tablets, their sniffling and runny noses have already subsided. Now we just have to wait for their watery eyes to go away.

We hit the jackpot today! At 9am, the Embassy came and delivered Sheridan's new big girl bed. Since we returned home she has been crawling out of her crib on average of 8 times per night. To combat her stealth escape missions, we got smart and put her crib mattress on the floor. That proved a futile attempt. She still got up and wandered the house in the wee hours of the night. This afternoon was spent taking down the crib, making the bed, and putting up the bed rail. Wish us luck that she sleeps in her bed throughout the night!
