Thank you all for your kind words and well wishes for Finn last week! He tolerated the second antibiotic we tried much better! And when I say tolerate, I mean he isn't aggressively puking it up. But that's probably because he refuses to swallow it to begin with. He receives half of each dose at best. It's an awful painful process for us both. I digress... This weekend we had a few healthy days, and quite a bit of fun. Conor & Liam had a bluebird day of skiing, and we were all treated to some early Spring weather. Lots of time outside in the sunshine. Liam is perfecting his soccer skills before he officially starts on a team this Fall, and he even took his first grown-up free bike ride around the block with some of the older neighbor kids. I'm heading into this week feeling refreshed, which I am going to need...
Because illness has struck our family yet again. Double time. Both boys are sick together, and it is miserable for everyone. I'm eating a big piece of humble pie because typically, I have some of the healthiest kids. They have great immune systems and are rarely ever sick. Like ever. But here we are. They both have a barking cough, runny nose, & fever. I cannot possibly give them both everything they need, but damn I am trying hard. Finn has decided that he will not sleep for longer than 10 minutes at a time, for the past two nights, so yeah. Sleep deprived doesn't even begin to describe how I'm feeling. Thankfully Conor & I are taking turns with Finn at night, so somehow I have managed to get out of bed each morning.
This post isn't to complain or cry out "whoa is me." It's just a "hey, having sick kids is tough. Having two sick kids is really tough. Sometimes motherhood is tough. And not glamorous" But I did have two snuggly boys today. And I also got to watch a lot of Daniel Tiger, which I'm not gonna lie, I kinda love!
Right now, we're just surviving. But soon.. soon we will be back to adventuring.
