Its early o’clock this morning and I jumped on the computer to try to catch my breath. I know, computer = work — which DOES NOT = relaxing normally. You should all know me by now, the computer is my happy place… well more specifically DNH is my happy place. I’m catching my breath from one doozy of a week. We are in week 2 of Summer and well this parenting this is NO JOKE! I mean, I thought I knew what I was signing up for until recently. Yes, things have slightly changed now that I’m home with my babes more, but I tell ya, this parenting gig ain’t for the weak!
The last couple of weeks has been cray cray (crazy crazy lingo). The hubs and DNH Girl headed back to the Midwest to visit his parents for a few days. Me and my little mister held down the fort here. Oh my goodness, I haven’t shared pictures from our hiking adventure. This week, I promise. Oye. Then it was last week of speech for DNH girl, and hubs birthday and Father’s day. In hopes of salvaging the hubs birthday, I whipped together a pool party/dive-in movie night this past weekend. Then this week started with DNH Girl not feeling great. Trip to the doc for inconclusive test results, but lets just say it involves a lot of urine. Heading to the San Diego fair to spend the evening with a few of our besties who were starting in on a their own health adventure this week (prayers appreciated). While at the fair, a few accidents later with DNH Girl, we decide to head home. On the way out of the fair, DNH Boy starts throwing up everywhere. Hubs and I are running to the car where holding pukey boy pretty much covered in puke. Get home, get both kids cleaned up, get both parents cleaned up and off to bed. Yesterday, I decide to hunkering down to get both kids feeling better. Happy to report it worked. It was a one time occurrence for DNH Boy (so far). Maybe he’s prone to motion sickness like his mama or the spinning ride he went on with his sister? DNH Girl is on meds and happy go-lucky again. Everything in our house has been washed, disinfected and washed again. whew…
They tell you, you’ll be covered in spit-up(puke) and urine with babies, but I’m here to tell you, it happens even when they aren’t. So today I’m starting to catch my breath. Off to work today and more than slightly worried about both kids and what the day will hold for them. Ever have weeks like this?
Okay, i’m done complaining. Thanks for listening. Definitely not trying to be a martier and definitely know there are folks out there having a much worse week than myself. If you wouldn’t mind sending a few prayers for my friends this weekend, I would greatly appreciate it! Oh, I’m hearing the babes wake and I’m in dire need of a coffee, so I’m signing off. I have some Summer Fun, Crafts, DIY and hot spots to tell you all about next week. Till then, have a great weekend, and have a glass of wine for me! Oooh, anyone else loving the whites this Summer? What are some of your favorites? I’ll share some of mine in the next couple of days, although I can tell you I have been enjoying the Mirassou Chardonay as a tasty inexpensive one to keep in the fridge. Okay, that’s really all I have! Happy Friday!
Ciao for now!
