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.|
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.|
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
******** 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 ;) **********
