Weekend Recap: The Sick House Edition

There's not a lot to recap.  We didn't leave the house (except for groceries and the doctor) and the boys are still sick.  But this year, I'm truly trying to find joy in the ordinary.  So in between checking temperatures, administering meds, nose wiping, nap time, bedtime, and bath time we had some special moments.  It is not the glamorous side of parenting, but it's an important one.  And these are the times that will surely be missed once our babies are grown.  My heart has just been breaking for my boys.  They are some of the saddest & sickest kids ever.  And as their mama, they know that I have the powers to make anything & everything better.  I sure am trying! 


We snuggled constantly.  Conor & I ate our meals with a child on our laps, and we cheers-ed with an adult beverage of choice in the evenings.  A reward for survival of that given day.  We watched more Daniel Tiger as well as Frozen (in anticipation of Disney on Ice next weekend!!!!).  And since the weather continued to be gorgeous, we even snuck into the backyard a few times.  Liam has been begging for us to open up his sandbox, so we figured some fresh air may be good for us all.  The boys were worn out quickly, but those moments were the highlight of the weekend.  Finn just seems pumped to be outside and NOT wearing a massive snowsuit!




Assuming Liam does hit day 8 with a fever, I think will venture out of the house on Monday!  Our pediatrician gave us the okay to finally be social, and oh how we are ready!

  1. They look cute even when sick! And I'm always amazed at how quickly sick kids tire out compared to their normal super active selves :(. I'm also shocked and jealous how you can go from so much beautiful snow to spring weather! I find out in between weather drags on and on!

  5. Such sweet boys. We have had a stomach virus we can't seem to shake around here but that is NO comparison to sick babies with fevers. Few things are more heartbreaking for sure. So glad ya'll have had some moments of play & memory making in midst of all the germ bugs. Sure hope ya'll find relief soon!

  10. Ah that photo of him looking out the window! So sorry about all the sickness, but glad you guys got a little bit of outdoor time (even if it wasn't quite what you would normally have hoped). Sending healthy vibes your way.

  11. It must be so nice to thaw out from the winter with kids. I barely remember how that all went down when we lived in CO, but without kids it was a whole different ball game. Although we can't go out in the summer down here, so similar...we get to chill out come fall. I hope that fresh air is enough to knock out the icks.
