well i wish i had fun and exciting things to come blog about right now but frankly, we are just trying to survive stupid january and all the colds and coughs and 24-hour bugs that keep being sent our way. the littles and i spent most of our morning in mama’s bed cuddling and napping together as we are finally getting over our last *I’M NOT KIDDING THIS BETTER BE THE LAST* 24-hour stomach bug this month. this day just dragged on for eternity and i am glad to see it go….
the cold chills and shakes are especially exciting when you have workers coming through your apartment all afternoon because there is a bad pipe in the building (or something like that), and they’re tearing out walls behind the cabinets in your kitchen trying to find it. you’re trying to keep your toddler out of said kitchen because they are leaving all these scary tools all over the floor and she’s ooohing and ahhhing over them and desperately wanting to run off with that heavy looking saw/knife thing that is making you incredibly uncomfortable. by six o’clock i was done. (i was done by 1 o’clock to be honest but i tried to put on a brave face and not text my husband a bunch of SOS’s until six. sometimes i try to be brave and stuff. although today i feel like being brave is super overrated.)
but i can’t complain too much because my kids do sick really well. they are happy little cuddle bugs that appear pleasant in between barfing sessions (whaat?!?). i mean, you’d think we are photoshopping this smile onto samson’s face! but if you know him in person, you know he never gives it a rest. and that’s quite nice because it helped me make it through today, january-longest-day-ever-24th, 2013. i’m glad to see you go, day. please take all my chills and shakes with you!
