I wasn't feeling particularly peachy, either, so I gave her a dose of tylenol for her fever then tucked her into bed. I promptly crawled in with her and passed out. Poor Dan was left to manage Livie most of the night, and by the early morning hours, she was wailing for Mama.
I took over with Livie and she sighed immensely in relief and told me how great Papa is to play with but how much she misses Mama for cuddling.
All right, so maybe not in words, but it was all there in her expression. And the way she passed out 30 seconds later and slept like a log for two hours in my arms.
I'm grateful to have a job where I can be here for my girls when they are sick. When their nanny called to tell me P had a fever, I immediately came home. The relief in Paityn's eyes when she saw me made me melt. This morning, P was quite chipper and seemed just fine. But shortly before I left for work, she began winding down again and her fever spiked.
Do you remember how that was when you were little? You'd be sick, then you'd feel awesome and be bouncing off the walls, then you were suddenly feeling quite sick again.
I asked P if she wanted me to stay home. "All you have to do is ask, Lovey, and I'll stay here with you."
She whispered, while looking up at me with those big eyes, "Stay home."
And so I did.
I do feel as if I've had my fill of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Doc McStuffins. I must have watched at least 10 hours of those shows between yesterday and today.
I have to admit, though, that I'm thoroughly enjoying Doc, which is a new Disney Junior show. It's right up there with Handy Manny in terms of watchability for adults.
Everyone is much better now, so I decided to get some work done. But before I can settle down to work, I simply have to share a few pictures from last week. Today being Wordless Wednesday and all.
By the way, you might have noticed that I have completely given up on being wordless in my Wordless Wednesday posts. I just love talking to you way too much to miss an opportunity. I feel like if you are stopping by my little blog to catch up, then the least I can do is offer you a bit of friendly conversation.
You can even join us for breakfast.
The company is excellent.
We can be quite silly around here.
But we always manage to find something interesting to do.
And we always find a reason to smile.
So stop by anytime. I hope you'll do so often. I love visiting with you.
