This week has been one full of sickness.
I had grandiose dreams of crafting, list making, gift assembling, and house cleaning, but once the sickness hit our home everything came to a screeching halt.
|I'm so glad I made these earlier in the week, pre- sick babies. They're stuffed papers with quinoa, spinach, turkey, salsa, and mushrooms. We got quite a few meals out of these, which was incredibly helpful|
|Sickness is setting in|
|Bob and I were able to keep our dinner date at McCormick and Schmicks|
I had salmon stuffed with lobster, shrimp, and brie
|She's getting so big|
|Enjoying some Duck Dynasty on the couch|
|Day two of sickness|
At least I got a lot of cuddle time
|I asked Bray to get some toilet paper for sis' nose|
I should have known better
|I asked him to clean up the mess and apparently he'd unraveled quite a bit more in the bathroom|
|Finally, a few minutes of play time on the floor with her elderberry juice|
|Her tummy started acting up again|
back to my shoulder she went
|After more rest she was ready for lunch- bites of bread|
|Bray insisted on making a bed on the couch for he and Avery|
I'd be lying if I said the last few days have been easy, but none of that matters in light of the recent Connecticut shooting. I'd changed poopy diapers and hold sick babies any day.
I pray I remember what a joy it is to be with my children, regardless of sick days and dirty houses, undone to-do's and mounds of laundry.
