So our lives have been slightly out of sorts. Our little girl went from breathing treatments last weekend to a couple days of not eating and throwing up this week. We had lots of bathing and cuddling and laundry as a result. But notice- she is still smiling all the while saying “tummy hurt” and my heart ached at the inability to make it stop.
By the second night, I had Joe drag the mattress into their room so I could help her in the middle of the night. This means not much sleep, but lots of peace of mind.

We even had an incident in the car requiring a full cleaning of the car seat. We used a blanket as the stand in cover.DSC02658Then early in the week we let the boys watch the State of the Union address, but after that our phone and internet went out. A couple days of no phone made us feel very separated from the world and from each other. We are now discussing the real possibility of getting cell phones. No one else seems to care that our land line wires are shriveled and decaying.

Here he is with his apple tart.Joey1978 RulezI am bummed that Joe had to miss two days of student teaching this week. But he was more than willing. And so we hodge podged the week and now it’s Saturday. More time for playing outside
