Our Hospital Stay

Most of my friends and family know that my newborn and I were in the hospital for a couple weeks. Not because she was born at 35 weeks but because when we came home my 3 yo decided to give her RSV.

How long have you been perusing Facebook or Pinterest while junior stays glued to his iPad? I'm guessing hours. 

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. Get off your butts, quit complaining and take care of your household!
