We’re welcoming the spring by experiencing three weeks of sickness.
After what was a remarkably healthy winter for us, the germs have found our address and crashed our party. Our dear, sweet girls have been battling one thing after another for almost a month. Lucy came down with a bout of the barfs last night, so we canceled all of our plans today and stayed home.
One of the most challenging things for me in this season of illness has been the constant decision-making. Should I cancel piano lessons? What about the babysitter tomorrow? Will they be feeling well enough for the outing on Friday? I’m really sorry that Lucy threw up, but I must say I’m grateful for the clarity that it brings. No one is going anywhere today! I even have time to take a few photographs.
Miraculously, Mama has stayed healthy, for the most part. My only complaint is a bizarre mouth infection that leaves me feeling as though I ate a tablespoon of MSG. We’re on round two of this Magic Mouthwash (which is actually what Dr. Davis called it). I call it Fruit Punch Bubblegum Chalk, but it does the trick.
And, although I wouldn’t say it is fun to be sick, I’m appreciating the extra snuggling time that comes along with it. Here’s hoping we’ll be recovered tomorrow!
