Eric and I both agree that this is the year to step it up with our business. We started Announcing Yours about a year and a half ago and haven't done much to promote it, besides telling our friends. So, this year we're really working on our marketing and networking. For all of you Chico people, check out our advertisement in Growing Up Chico magazine. I'm sooo excited that it's out! I've been waiting for a few months, not knowing exactly when it would come out. So, now we're just praying that it's successful and brings in a lot of business!
If you know of anyone that's is going to have a baby or a party or a wedding, tell them about Announcing Yours. Eric has some amazing designs up, but if you (they) don't see something you like let us know and he can custom create something just for you!
Well, I'm really tired. Eric, Judah, and Samuel are all getting over a cold. Because Samuel has been congested he hasn't been sleeping very well. Because he hasn't been sleeping very well I haven't been sleeping very well. He probably woke up 6 times last night. Ugh! As you all know, I'm really anal about sickness and sick people around me and people bringing their sick kids to my house/in public, etc.. I'm now the girl in charge of the nursery/Sunday School at church, so my first rule was no sick kids in the nursery! Well umm, today was my nursery day and I brought Judah at the end of his cold, anyway. Is that horrible of me? Now, to justify myself, he had clear snot only and all of the other kids were snotty, too. And, I asked another mom what she thought and she said it was fine. What am I supposed to do when other sick kids come in? I feel bad telling a parent not to bring their kid and I know the other nursery workers do, too.
Also, about the sick thing, I was reading this article (I don't remember where, probably Yahoo News) that said most people think it's an honorable thing to go to work sick. Like, they feel so sick but, because they're so needed at work, they'll just suck it up and go anyway. Well, I'm here to tell you it's not honorable. It's just gross and spreads the germs. Yuck yuck yuck! If you're sick, stay home. If your kid is sick, keep them home.
Ok, before you all think I'm completely crazy...I wasn't like this before I had kids. I promise. Ask my mom. I just know that having your kids sick is the most horrible thing ever. Especially when they're babies (like Samuel) and can't blow their noses and can't breathe at night. Poor baby!
