These are totally going to have to be quick. Jen’s will certainly be far better and more interesting than mine.
After a whole day of Chloe not throwing up, we ended the evening with a big, barfy mess. The casualties: My Pal Violet and her pillow. We pulled her mattress into our room and she spent the night with us. Thankfully, she feels better this morning and that Violet is on sale at Walmart for $17.88.
I woke up at 3:50am and this morning and couldn’t fall back asleep until about 4:45ish (I’m guessing). Ben cried out and I was going to go to him, but since the crying didn’t continue I stayed in bed. The reason I couldn’t fall back asleep was that the little baby inside me kept giving me really good kicks and every time I felt one it kept me from falling back asleep.
Ben must have cried out in the middle of the night because he threw up. When I got him this morning at 7:30, I found his bed covered in…well, throw up. Poor baby cried from 7:30am-9:30 when I put him back to bed after he was bathed, snuggled and had some fluids in him. Please God no more throwing up! We lost two stuffies and a fitted crib sheet for sure, and we’re trying to see if we can save Scout (the green version of Violet).
I have a ridiculous pile of laundry to fold and wash right now, but absolutely no energy to do it. All I’d like to do is sleep or spend the day in bed watching movies with my kids (which will very likely happen).
Tremendous mom-guilt here. We’ve watched a lot of tv lately. Between the insane amount of snow we’ve been getting (more on that in the next quick take) and the flu bugs we’ve been fighting, we’ve been popping in movie after movie after movie. I’m hearing of friends who are taking their kids outside, to sports, to recreational swimming and/or gymnastics, and I’m thinking: “I suck. We’re watching tv and sometimes playing or reading.” Thankfully right now Chloe is putting magnetic pompoms on the fridge and that’s something better than tv, right?
Josh Classen from CTV news: “Total snowfall in #yegwx area since November 1st looks to be in the 70-80cm range. We average 122cm for an entire winter.” Ya. That’s why we’re staying in and not going anywhere. Also, we’ve somehow managed to lose 3 out of the 4 pairs of mittens Ben owns.
I found another book I want. It’s a guide to help meditate on the Rosary. For $11.51, I may just have to snag it.
