Are bad days contagious?

I spoke with my sister the other day and she was having a bad day. Well, low and behold, I caught it. I woke up this morning and didn't feel too hot. Not sure what my problem is. I have taken everyone's advice and never "wished away" any of Chase's phases. Well today I am officially "wishing away" the first tooth phase. I can see the bud under his gum and I am begging the Lord to just let it pop on in. He's up two and three times a night because his little gums hurt so bad. I go in and give him teething tablets and he is usually back to sleep within 10 minutes. I just really got used to sleeping through the night. I do honestly feel bad for him because I know the pain has got to be really bad.

One thing that did cheer me up was that I got to hear Josh Davis speak at my nephews chapel today at their school. He won three gold medals for swimming in the 1996 Olympic Games. He was a great speaker and was very motivating. He told us how when he was in the 8th grade his swim coach told him he wasn't that good and should consider a different sport. He didn't quit--he got a new coach. Isn't that amazing? Had he listened to that first coach he may have never gotten gold medals at the Atlanta Olympics. My favorite was that he took his pic with Chase and put the gold medal around Chase's neck. I will post it as soon as I get the copy. It's on my sister-in-laws camera.

Okay...enough randomness for today. Got to go tend to my crying baby.
