We’re so sick. Every single family member. The antibiotics are kicking strep’s butt so that’s great. But buddy buddy with strep came along a really awful cold virus. It’s been awful. Really awful. I won’t bother complaining about the specifics because everyone has been sick and knows how badly it sucks!
Allan couldn’t go shopping for me one week so I waited until the kids had been on antibiotics for 72 hours to go shopping. We were desperate for some fresh food by that day!!
My kids bring their toys into the family room every day. I’ve told them to keep their toys in the playroom or their bedrooms practically daily but still they bring out boxes and boxes of toys to play with! While sick I’ve given up and accepted that my family room will look like a disaster until we’re healthy again. Ember playing with toys instead of crawling all over me while whining or crying is a big relief so the mess is a small price to pay for quiet happiness!
Trying to get some fresh air in the evening. We’ve been cooped up in the house too long!
My voice went away three days into my cold. I’ve been trying to have lots of reading time with the kids but couldn’t that day. Allan took over bedtime story time 🙂
I hate that when I’m pregnant I wake up SO hungry. Like I need to throw up if I don’t eat because my stomach hurts so bad! And nothing sounds good except for protein. This particular morning I made myself eat fruit along with my egg and (delicious chicken, apple) sausage to help my body get a boost of vitamins to combat the virus currently wreaking havoc.
While I was cooking breakfast Ember was happily playing with her toys.
We spend a lot of time lounging on the couch together these days. I like to cuddle and be with my baby girl but we’re sick to death of being stuck inside!
Just to show that I’m not lying when I say my family room is pretty much always messy these days…
Ember was asking to breastfeed when I took this next one. (I hate breastfeeding. HATE. So painful and aggravating and she wants to nurse all the live long day! I usually say no.)
My belly is getting huge. Grossly huge.
I’m not quite ready to have another child to take care of but I’m so done with being pregnant. Too bad it’s not November already. Hopefully the next month and a half goes by really fast!
