Well this New Year’s had been busy with both boys coming down with double ear infections- can you say “fun”? All in all we’re doing well despite the boys getting sick.
It actually started on New Years Day with one starting with a really bad hacking cough that seemed to get worse as the days went on. Even though I made every effort to keep pacifiers separate, feed them from different bowls/spoons, and wipe down all their toys my other son soon followed with coughing symptoms.
My oldest hasn’t wanted to eat very much either and has been very particular about only wanting to drink milk. I’m thinking it may have to do with having a sore throat- poor Bubba!
I wish I was immune to all the germs that come from buggery faced- kisses, sneezes made towards my face, and having the sick kiddos sleep with me at night. Alas, I have come down with a sore throat myself last night!
I’m taking it in stride and just going about the usual business of taking care of kids, the home, bills etc, etc…
One of my goals for this year is to be more specific and purposeful about making time for “ME” and having time to do stuff with girlfriends or go on a date with my hubby. I found out about this great meme (through Mandy’s Blog) that’s going on over at the “Life not Finished; I’m still working on it” by the Dolli-Mama” (gotta love the name!)it’s called the “52 Weeks of Me Challenge.” This challenge is about doing just ONE thing for yourself each week which isn’t alot to ask for. Talk about an inspired topic! Well I’m taking the challenge and I believe it will be a great experience. If you want to read more about it or even join the challenge visit this link.
My “me” time this week will consist of a nice bubble bath and chick flick!
Here’s to more mom time and a germ-free New Year!
