We’re spending the New Year quietly at home so far. Each of the boys has had their turn with 102-103′ fevers, vomiting, and other nasty symptoms. I’ve so far escaped getting sick, surprisingly, and am so grateful for that. Basically, each morning I tuck WhyDaddy and whichever boy is sick at the time into bed and spend the day downstairs with the other one. I’ve gotten a great deal of cleaning and picking up done, and taking care of my boys to boot. (The sick ones are easy. Water and Gatorade every hour or two, and offers of food, which are quickly refused. An 11 month old healthy baby is a little more demanding!) I’ve even gotten out to the store twice with Little Bear to get necessary supplies (medicine, gatorade, and crackers).
Isn’t it funny — of everyone in the house, I’m the only one who is healthy!
It’s so nice to be able to take care of my boys again.
Oh, and the new friends? I’d like to introduce you to Nancy, who has been crocheting chemo caps for the cancer folks at The Wellness Community — she has a great web site with her designs and completed projects at Crocheting Creativity. Also Judy at Just Enjoy Him, who got an IBC diagnosis last week. She’s got a 6 year old boy, and we’re talking offline too. And one more — Angela fom Laudat, who many of you know, but I don’t think I ever told you I met in person! It was so cool to meet her at The Wellness Community a few weeks ago, and then again a couple weeks later. We had a great time talking, and I hope to see her again soon!
Next week I’m going out with the DC Metro Moms. I’m all nervous … what (hat) will I wear?
