Corny St. Patty's Day Joke & Day 8 Historical Tour

Here is my joke - hopefully no one is offended. These days I think some people need to be less sensitive or, in other words, lighten up a bit.

What is Irish and stays out all night?
(Patty O'Furniture)

Alrighty, now for the postcards!

Today the kids toured the Supreme Court building and the Library of Congress (lucky them) and also Fort McHenry. We received these two postcards today. If you are so inclined you can click on the image and it will open larger, in another window. He's such a good speller. Spelling is important to me.

Protein is also important because he and I don't do well when our blood sugar is low. I do harp on the protein issue. Jacob weighed 3 lbs. and 14 ozs. at birth. They fed him with a tube directly into his stomach at first, then we graduated to a thinner piece of tubing taped to our finger and we would slowly inject the formula down the tube and into his mouth. All of this to keep him from using calories. If you've ever had a premie baby I'm sure you know the drill. Finally he graduated to a bottle (had zero interest in breastfeeding - him, not me - I tried everything) and we fed him one ounce at a time. These are things a mother does not forget, and I am still concerned with him having enough to eat. I know....I need to get a life.

His care package was waiting upon check-in at the hotel. I sent cookies and some chocolate eggs. No protein!
