This Week. Alternate Title: Yikes.

Purple Sky
Holy cow, gang. This week was a doozy. I mentioned in a few times on IG stories, but in case you missed it — Henry got his tonsils out a week ago today. And helping a toddler recover from a tonsillectomy (and an adenoid removal!) is intense. I remember having my tonsils and adenoids out when I was little, and I still remember that pain. To see your little dude dealing with that pain is so heartwrenching. And while he’s old enough to understand what’s going on, you just can’t expect a toddler to calmly withstand a procedure like that. He’s been a total trooper, trying to be up to his usual hijinx, but it’s just tough. Especially at night — not a lot of sleeping has been going on in our house lately!
And of course, darling Mags picked this week to bring home a nasty strep throat germ, so suffice it to say we’ve got our hands full. I’m pretty sure if you caught a glimpse of our household in the middle of the night it would just look like two adult zombies stumbling back and forth between the kids’ rooms, rocking and shushing and doling out medicine all night long.
But I have high hopes for this weekend — we cleared all of our plans and we’re just focused on staying home and getting these babes of ours a little closer to 100% healthy. Maybe someday I’ll do a post on how we’re dealing with Henry’s recovery and how to help a toddler get through it. Although I’m not sure we nailed any of it, so maybe that’s better left to another expert! Haha!
In any case, hope you are super healthy and get to enjoy a fun spring weekend, wherever you are! xoxo

Happy Friday + Three Kids

Happy Friday! And oops, I just realized that title was accidentally kind of misleading. No, we’re not pregnant. (Nooooooo neverrrrr againnnnnn!) But! We’re babysitting my niece for an overnight this weekend for the first time! And I’m pretty pumped about it. I’ll have all three kids by myself on Saturday, so I’m trying to figure out what we can do with a 7 year old, a 3 year old, and a 1 year old that everyone will love. Tall order? Yes. But we’ll figure it out. I’m thinking we bake something? And do some craft projects? And hit the park? And let’s be real, probably watch a movie while the 1 year old is napping. 😉
Anyway! I would sincerely love you forever if you have any great ideas of what we can all do together. Leave me a comment if you’ve got a brilliant plan and then cross your fingers for me that we make it through the weekend. Kidding! Sort of. Have a good one. xo
P.S. That photo up there was from our visit to my parents’ farm last weekend. Seeing them climb those old pasture fences that my sister and I used to climb just did me in.
