Sick Day

Hey, friends!  First of all - thank you for all of your sweet words about my "tutorial" video yesterday.  I'm going to assume that y'all meant all of the nice things you said and weren't just saying them to try and win the awesome scarf ;)

Yesterday was awesome.  Not going to lie.

On Tuesday night we ate dinner at Chipotle, and I managed to take one classic picture before my phone battery died.  #brotherlylove

At dinner, Griffin had ZERO appetite, but I thought maybe she just wasn't a fan of the food.  She was acting fine and was all smiles - but when we got home she LOST IT all over our kitchen floor.  I put her to bed and about 30 minutes later it happened again.  Twice.  Then in the bathtub as we were cleaning her up. And then twice more after her bath.  Poor baby!

Thankfully, she made it through the night with no more issues, but I decided to stay home with her just in case.  I hate the thought of any of my kiddos not being at home if they don't feel good and definitely didn't want her to be around the other kids if she was still sick.

The boys went to school and Miss Lisa's and G and I spent the morning reading...

... snuggling/napping...

... and watching some Sofia.

We both took a little nap and then it was time to paint G's toes ;)


We went with OPI Strawberry Margarita. hahaha  Totally appropriate, right? :)

After her pedi, we folded some laundry and then she colored and ate for the first time since lunch on Tuesday.


She watched some Frozen (while I sat close by with old towels just in case the cereal bar decided not to sit well with her)...


... and munched on some dry lucky charms (we were out of Cheerios - #momfail)

She took a LOOOOONG nap and then I had to wake her up to go pick up Mason.  A girl after my own heart she insisted on bringing a pink calculator.  Sidenote - we also forgot shoes.  But check out those pink piggies!!!

She started to get her "sparkle" back! :)


And yes.... with no humidity, her hair is straight! Crazy!

I accomplished virtually nothing today outside of the few hours she napped and it was glorious. She laid on me and napped in the morning and I didn't feel bad or guilty for not trying to lay her in her crib.  There was no multi-tasking, answering emails while she sat with me or cleaning while she played.  We didn't run an errand, I didn't change out of my sweats and I loved every second of it.  I HATE that she didn't feel good the night before, but LOVE that she and I got the special day together.  I feel like I kind of hit the "pause" button for a day and it was glorious :)

Tomorrow is Friday Favorites - so get those posts ready, ladies!!!  And it's going to be EXTRA fun because Erika, Narci and I have something AWESOME up our sleeves for y'all!  Get excited!

  3. Poor lil girl!! I absolutely HATE when my kids are sick. I just wanted to say that I love & admire that you took the day off to stay home w/ G. I know SOO many moms who would just ship their kids off to daycare or have a sitter come to their house just so they wouldn't miss a day of work (heaven forbid). So hat's off to you for ALWAYS being a wonderful mama :-)

  6. So glad little miss Griffin has gotten her sparkle back! Sick kiddos is no fun, but it sounds like a relaxing day of cuddles was the best medicine for both you and your girl.

  11. When my girls are sick, it is snuggle time. Now that I have a few who are older, I still sit with them on the couch or in my bed and watch movies and nap.... So happy she is better :)

  14. I am the same as you. I hate when my kids are sick, but am equally as thankful for those extra sweet snuggles.

  15. Boooo for sickies! Hope she's feeling better! We have a little one with SUPER curly hair in the summer, super straight hair in the winter. It's hilarious! He needs a trim now because it's so long and straight.

  16. Glad she is feeling better, but one on one time is great, especially since she was extra cuddly and feeling a bit better. Nothing worse then sick kids. Knock on wood, I haven't had to experience the throw up kind of sick yet...almost 4 years and counting...and now that I've said that, pretty sure I just jinxed myself.

  17. Poor GG! Glad she seems to be feeling better and that you were able to stay home with her :) It is so tough for us moms to press that pause button. I am taking a few days off throughout December to hang out with my little guy and just enjoy the day. I am going to do my best not to focus on laundry or chores. Just playing, maybe attempting to bake cookies together, and take a fun drive somewhere :)
