my sick little guy:(So we clean him up & snuggle w/ him on the couch till he falls asleep.UGH! now what to do? everything is mostly packed & Andy is committed to playing for a team in the Dublin softball tournaments...I finally tell Andy to just go,that I would stay home w/ the kids(what I really wanted to say was,(YOU CAN'T GO & LEAVE ME W/A SICK KID ON A HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!)...Weston slept all night & fri.morn. he seemed to feel better so i picked up my babysitter to be w/ the little boys(the 2 older kids were in school)& i went to get groceries for the weekend.When i got home he was still fine so i thot maybe we can go afterall...nope! right after the kids came home from school he up-chucked again!...by this time I was physically & emotionall drained & just sat down w/ him & cried:(
By the time Andy is ready to leave the kids & me are one droopy,sad mess...i'm pretty sure there were @ least 3 of us bawling when he's giving good-bye hugs,he comes to hug me & I just wasn't feeling the love so he says hes sorry & turns to go...( I know what you're thinking,that wasn't the proper wifey response)but I was feeling jealous of his weekend alone w/ the guys,playin softball,having fun while i'm @ home in the sick house.
By this time i'm resigned to the fact that i'm staying home,thinking if Weston is ok all day sat.the kids & I would go visit my family @ the campgrounds where they are camping all weekend,it could still turn out to be a fun weekend.Weston was fine all day sat...I got some canning done,10qaurts chili soup & 8pints ketchup.
8 pints ketchup
10 quarts chili
Everyone slept great sat. night,the van is all packed for a day of camping...Sun. morn we are up,dressed & heading out...literally 3min on the rd. & Dawson throws up in the van! We turn around @ the nearest driveway & head home again,unload the van again & clean up the mess,now i'm staying HOME!!!
oh yes... Aalyvia's first tooth came out sat. too! She was almost giddy,happy! all her friends teeth kept falling out & she could hardly wait for her 1st one to fall out:)
