November 21, 2010

I came to the realization today that Emily measures time by number of days with Mommy, meaning my days off work. Wow, that really makes me feel like a heel! I hate leaving the kids anyway, but to hear her tell Ryan, "You need to get ready for school. This is the last day with Mommy, and that means you have school." Well, it's actually not my last day before going back to work, and the boys obviously don't have school on a Sunday. I have one more day off this week, but she was certain that she had counted right. Her whole plans for the day had revolved around this being "Mommy's last day" which to her meant my day with just her and Braylon.

Instead, Emily, Ryan, and I went downstairs before the others got up to make cinnamon rolls. Ryan and Emily took Daddy breakfast in bed, and the other boys got to enjoy theirs when they got up. Very sweet morning with my middle two kids. And very yummy cinnamon rolls too. Just what my diet was missing, right??? LOL.

We've all been passing a nasty bug around the last couple weeks. First was Ryan sick for 2 days, then Ashton for 2 days, then Ryan for 2 more. Then we had a couple good days and then Denny got a fever and sore throat for 2 days. Several days later, Braylon came down with a fever but no other symptom. He ran 103+ for 2 days, then got okay. I wasnt' so lucky. Wednesday at work, my throat started hurting. By Thursday night, I was running a fever and was barely strong enough to drive myself home. By Friday morning, I had nasty blisters in my throat, could barely breathe, and could do little more than sleep. Fast forward to Sunday....I'm finally awake! Throat still killing me, but I finally feel like I'm joining the real world.

Only one who hasn't gotten it yet is Emily. Well of course she went to bed early last night claiming she wasn't feeling well and then woke up this morning coughing her little head off. I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come! Keeping my fingers crossed! She can't afford another lung infection.

The pictures below are of Braylon and Ryan taken last night after Emily was in bed. Braylon won these little tops from the school fair a few days ago, and he stood on a kitchen chair for hours last night trying to spin them. He likes them so much, he even slept with them! So cute! And then the other picture is of Ryan and our cat Miss Oreo. Ryan and his cat are nearly inseparable, but this might just be taking devotion to a whole new level!
