Well… somehow our house became the Sick House again. Sam came down with a low grade fever and a cold Saturday morning (poor thing- thankfully the fever went away after 24 hours) and Sophie has a cold. We’re washing our hands like crazy and disinfecting everything ok hopes that we stay away from sickness (we being me and Zack, that is) and are praying fervently that our babies get healthy again soon! There is nothing sadder than sick little ones. Nothing. It just breaks my heart. The only good thing is of course the sweet cuddles…
The cuddles that turn my almost-3-year-old back into my baby boy.
We did end up hitting up a few garage sales before Sam’s fever struck, and scored some wooden blocks for $1, so that was a win!
Basically the entire weekend was spent keeping the kiddos away from each other, so that Sophie doesn’t get whatever Sam has (although she’s sick too, so who knows how well that went…), so Zack and I switched off kid duty, with one staying at home with Sam and the other taking Sophie places. Sophie won this weekend, ha! She got to go to Starbucks and the farmers market with daddy, and on walks and a trip to Target (which Zack said, and I quote, “have fun and take your time!” Ha! Don’t have to tell me twice…!) with mama. If you ask Sophie, this weekend was awesome, except for the fact that she didn’t get to hang with her bubba, whom she loves the most. :(
Since we didn’t see much of each other during the days, we made sure to have a little in-home date night on Saturday- mainly because we didn’t have any dinner for ourselves and once we put the kids to bed, Zack decided to order takeout from my very favorite restaurant in town (Sellands, for you locals!) which, I mean, yes I am aware I’m a lucky woman. ;)
So it wasn’t the weekend we planned, but we made the most of it and still got some quality time in with everyone, together and separate. ;)
I’ve learned in life, sometimes you just gotta go with the flow.
And I mean, look at that little smile!!!! Ugh. I have no cause for complaint here. Also, she woke up crying last night and I went in and rocked her to sleep, for the first time in MONTHS. Excuse me while I go turn into a puddle on the floor. I could have stayed in there forever, dead arm be damned!
