having a sick kid sucks

Allow me, right here, to knock on wood and say that Wesley is still healthy so far.

Mary is sick, though, and has been home from school almost all week. She is very pathetic. I think that her fever finally went away (without ibuprofen) this afternoon, so I hope she’s turning the corner.

But it has been extremely frustrating and I feel so sorry for her. Also, as Conor said (when she was in bed), “This sucks. She’s so boring.” All she wants to do is laze around and watch movies, which of course is exactly what she SHOULD do since she’s sick. But this afternoon is the first time since…like…Monday that we have seen our sweet, funny, happy Bear.

Her nose is running like crazy but at least she gave me a few smiles.

p.s. I officially give up on the laundry now.


No-complaining Thursday: poor baby

Wesley is sick.

I feel sorry for him, obviously. But he is so, so cute and snuggly that a part of me is sort of cherishing it.  I know–mean. But oh–the cuteness. He is cuddling me more or less every waking moment. And he isn’t cranky, just tired and sad and snuggly. I hope he recovers soon, but still. Cute.

Mike and Sandy arrived last night, so we had dinner with them and with David (who is in town for work). Mary almost couldn’t handle the excitement. All these men keep arriving who look sort of like Daddy.
