I got hand, foot, and mouth too.
Today I have had chills, aches, fever, sore throat.
But there are a few little things I am so grateful for.
Nicholas played in our backyard all by himself for a couple of hours, happy and without needing me.
Tylenol. Seriously, where can I find the person who invented this? I want to send them a big thank-you gift basket.
The contagious period of hand foot and mouth lasts 7-10 days. Today is exactly 10 days away from when I leave for California for the Spring Event. So glad I won't have to miss it!
Ellie has learned to sit up.
This is my favorite stage of all. When they can sit and just be happy, chewing on a lid or crinkling a paper endlessly.
It's the best.
The kids were happy and cooperative all day long. It's rare to have a whole day where they are happy like this.
Kent came home from work early to help out.
Both kids took a three-hour nap, at the same time!
That is unheard of,
and such a mercy. I slept almost the whole time.
They smell heavenly. Right outside our front door.
Maybe life is hard,
but it's good too.
