Before I had the opportunity to exit the bathroom after my shower and lay down on my bed, my son came in crying, pleading with me to sleep in my bed. I gave him a hug, preparing to walk him back to bed when I felt his forehead. He was burning up. I went downstairs, grabbed the thermometer and some children’s aspirin, and headed back upstairs. Fever confirmed, medicine delivered, sleep followed. Whatever he has appears to be stomach related, so hopefully it will pass quickly.
With both my youngest at home, I had to skip my morning workout with my friend, again, but I am hopeful that I will be able to make it on Thursday. I did manage to get a run in this evening after I got the kids to bed, and am grateful that my oldest agreed to watch them while I ran.
It actually was a pretty great day. We read books outside, painted and colored, and I even read a chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone leading into nap time. I even let them each watch one short show. They were outside playing with play dough and coloring on the sidewalk with chalk.
I was able to put together a feel good music play list, and a Disney playlist for car rides, and it was fun to watch everyone (even my oldest) jump around and dance.
There was a little bit of suck today, too. My youngest puked on me and her just as we were getting ready to sit down to read books before bed, and developed a fever. My son’s fever started creeping up again, too. The good thing, though, is I am still healthy and able to take care of them. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I think I will be ready to face it.
Please feel free to share 3 positive things that happened to you today.
