Now, THAT'S service

J.J. woke up with a cough the other day. Daddy took him to the doctor, where he got checked out and got a couple of prescriptions (actually one sample and one prescription). He's doing much better now, thanks for asking.

What surprised me was what we came home to earlier today. We had made a run to our neighborhood Kroger (something we do FAR too often) and stopped at home to put away our refrigerated items and run out to grab lunch before daddy had to go to work. The answering machine was beeping, so I asked Joe to check it.

"Was it your mom?", I asked. J.J.'s Bammy frequently calls on her way home from church to see if the little one is awake so she can visit.

"No, it was the pharmacist".

"What? Seriously?"


The pharmacy called and left a message, saying they saw J.J. had been prescribed an antibiotic the other day and wanted to make sure he was doing okay and to let us know we could call if we had any questions or concerns.

I realize that there are a few major retailers that have reduced or eliminated their price of antibiotics and this is probably a "see, we're not free, but we care about you" attempt to keep their customer base.

And it absolutely worked.

We picked the winner, anyway...

So I was going to post a picture earlier of J.J. proudly wearing his "I voted" sticker, which he wore out of the library and all through Kroger. I was going to make a joke about him having a really good fake ID and a keen interest in local politics (even though I was the only one of the two of us who voted, he was given a sticker too).

But somewhere in the mile and a half between Kroger and home, he ate his sticker.

If you're lucky, I won't post a picture of the sticker tomorrow.

Better late than never?

I've already been scolded for letting this one sit in the camera for a full month...

This was shot the week J.J. put everything he ate in his hair (thankfully, a phase that he quickly moved out of). He's also working on winking (there are a couple of times when he blinks for longer than a blink; he's since gotten better at winking) and Lillie makes an appearance.

Good stuff.
