True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

All Together Now {Sunday Snapshot}

It hit me Friday morning. The sore throat. The tell-tale sign of soon-to-be crappy weekend.

Xandra woke up with a fever Saturday morning. Then Milo came down with a fever a couple hours later. FUN.

These pics were taken during a lull in the whining & fighting. They colored together peacefully, quietly... for about 10 minutes. It was heaven.
And Matt developed a flare-up of his gout. What the...??? All at once?!

Matt had to go help out a friend for most of the day, so us 3 sickies stayed home & got on each others' nerves. Seriously. The kiddos really don't like being forced to stay inside all day on a normal day. Add being sick into the mix... & it was a loud, whiney kind of day.

Xandra was so excited she was able to write Milo's name. She jumped up from her chair & twirled around giggling.
Did I mention no one took a nap Saturday? So, more crankiness ensued

And Saturday night, Milo was up no less than 8 times. Xandra was up a couple also. As Matt can't get up the steps with a flare-up, I got the privilege of not sleeping.

Oh, and the smoke alarm in Milo's room started that "low battery beep" around 4 in the morning. That beep that goes off every few minutes. Remember the Friends episode where Phoebe beat her smoke alarm? Go ahead & watch the clip... I'll wait. It's worth it, I promise.

Not to complain, but my day is not shaping up well. But seeing as this is Milo's first all-out sickness since he joined our family 5 months ago, I'll try to battle through. :) I need to take both of them out with me to run to the store later to get some essentials (tylenol, benadryl, more orange juice, and maybe some sleeping pills for the kids me....). Wish us luck.

******** It has not escaped me how often we tend to get sick around here- I went back through my posts a few days ago & was just amazed by the number of times "sick" popped up. I'm thinking it's because we live in OH... it's cold & nasty here about 9 months of the year. I'm lobbying to move to a warmer climate. I'll let you know how I make out ;) **********

Sunday Snapshot


  1. Hope you are all feeling better! Great blog!

  2. I don't need to rewatch the episode...am laughing remembering it! My husband used to travel for work. On one of his first long trips away (had three kids and the youngest was only a few months old), the smoke detector went crazy in the middle of the night which scared the crap out of me. I was alone, of course, and it kept going off. I waited until it was morning his time (he was in Hawaii) and he talked me through disabling the wiring--one of those kind that are hard wired to the house. ARGH. Hope you all get healthy soon! :)

  3. Sick days are NO fun. . . especially when the mama is sick. Praying for a speedy recovery for all of you!
