A little about our weekend.......
Paisley threw up yesterday before we headed out to get our tree. I thought it was just a freak I-chugged-my-drink-too-fast, type of throw up. This morning however, I changed my mind about the whole thing as I sat down to feed Eliza and just as I started singing Silent Night to her, she barfed all over me, the chair and the floor. Our big plans for decking out the house looked a little different as we dealt with a super sick Paisley and a grumpy and sick Eliza. Between hanging a few ornaments on the tree and unpacking our decorations, I scrubbed the floor countless times, changed their clothes, changed my clothes, gave them both baths and called my sister to laugh with her about how ridiculous this whole thing is. You know when you just need to laugh about something, so that you don't cry? Well, that's why I called her. Laughing about throw up and making inappropriate poop jokes always works. See, it wasn't just throw up that I scrubbed all day. It was the other stuff, that's supposed to go in the toilet. Those poor kids. They can't help it and they are so sick!
So, reading that last night was exactly what I needed. Our decorating day looked a bit different than what I'd anticipated, but it all worked out. The whole house still needs to be vacuumed and I'm not done decorating, but that'll happen when there's time and when my kids are healthy again.
For now, we're welcoming December, looking forward to all that this month brings and really hoping that the kids wake up healthy in the morning. Really, really, hoping for healthy kids. Did I say really? I meant really.
