***update: both kids have ear infections and we all have fevers now!***
Growing up, whenever my family was down with something we usually referred to it as being “sicky” . With my kids, the verbiage has morphed into being “sicky poo” although, I’m sure that’s about to change since one of Caidoc’s new favorite words is “poop” , as in “you need to potty-poop mom? Baby, you potty-poop?” Charming. But, in only-a-way-a-parent-would-understand, it is kinda cute 😜.
It’s Garden week with school! Little man loves to work in the garden despite the sickies .
Zelie has been sick for weeks now. Doctors are not being very helpful, but I’m pretty sure it’s a drawn out virus . She’s being such a champ.
Unfortunately, Caidoc woke up this morning with a fever. It was bound to happen I know, and I am glad it’s happening before vacation, but it is still hard not to feel sorry for myself. Two crabby, touchy, clingy, babes ride the nerve to a thread.
I’m a bit woeful about the hot weather this week too since that always makes fever extra miserable. So, I’ve been brainstorming ideas to keep the littles happy without being too confined and housebound. Most advise I get is to just plop them in front of a movie. While this works well with Caidoc, Zelie still doesn’t have tolerance for it. Soo… Hmm. The pondering continues.
I’ve been trying to work out a lot lately, and I was feeling pretty good about it but man alive, we hiked Rattlesnake Ledge and it put me through the ringer! At the time I didn’t notice, but today I am sore. Mostly my back is achy, but I’m gonna bet that’s front toting her highness in the ergo. We are in the market for a better hiking pack for her and maybe Caidoc too. Whew! It was a workout and my glutes are feeling it. Here I was thinking I had been working pretty hard but the elevation proved me otherwise! I need to find some good hills to train on around our house so I don’t have to take the extra time to drive to them- that’s just a hassle.
Anyways, this post was a few days in the making due to our rough week!
