Weekend Mashup

Goodness Gracious- our house can not get healthy.


The Toddler came down with a bad virus this past week and I was willing myself not to get sick.  I cleaned all of his toys-all of them.  Washed my hands more than I thought necessary.  But it wasn’t meant to be.  Pretty sure you can only get coughed on so many times before your body just gives in and lets the germ party commence as scheduled. YUCK.

Taking care of a sick toddler is one thing.  Taking care of a sick toddler while you are sick-AND- can’t take anything that will really make you feel better because you are pregnant-that is completely in a different ball park altogether.  So much so that I begged the Husband to come home on Thursday and take a half-day so that I could go crawl upstairs and die sleep.

A week of the sickness and the Toddler is just regaining his appetite.  I am trying anything to get some good food down his throat. Anything.

I don’t look like death today.  Although that is totally debatable as I sit in a robe at noon on a Monday. So really, I just look better than yesterday.  And you know what?  I will take it!

The night that D started feeling bad and unable to really toddle around without running into walls-HELLO equilibrium off- I thought that his first time with markers might make for some good memories- all of which were seated-secure in a high chair- so really nothing could go wrong : )

He LOVED it- and the masterpiece is up on our display shelf prominently in the dining room.  Can’t wait to make more treasures with him!


We BBQ’d with one of my best friends on Saturday and made some scrumptious homemade mac & cheese, hickory smoked cheese burgers and salad. Love seeing friends!

Sunday we spent relaxing and enjoying each other’s company because D was still under the weather and just wanted to cuddle.  I don’t know what happens when he is sick- but my little man gives the most kisses, hugs and cuddles when he doesn’t feel good.  Precious and sad all at the same time.  But I will take every cuddle I can because he is growing up quick! Too darn quick!
