We can see the light at the end of the tunnel! It certainly has been a long 8+ days and we are so glad to have it behind us! Parker is back to his normal self (minus the severe diaper rash from all the diarrhea from the antibiotics). Just so glad that right now we only have 1 child and I am not working full time. I had no energy last week and it was all I could do to get up, care for him and keep the house somewhat maintained. By Friday, I so desperately needed a break (even though I would have just loved to have gone to bed by 8PM!) So, Mike and I got out for some us time. We went to dinner at Twisted Taco with some of my MOP's friends (and of course he was the only guy -but he always makes for some great entertainment) and then we went off to see the Movie -State of Play. I was thankful that our sitter Hannah was available!
As I blog this I want to make it clear that there is not 1 day that goes by where I am not thankful for Parker and the joy of staying home. But WOW....it is SO true ,being a Stay at home mom really could be up there as one of the hardest jobs ever! The reward for now is seeing Parker happy (now that he's improving, and of course all the hugs and kisses I get and give to him). He has a thrill right now of coming up to us and leaning his head in to our faces because he wants a "Kiss!" It is so cute. I will have to get Mike and him on video doing it.
Unfortunately, I watched Kayleigh last week and it looks like she has come down with the same thing. She has a GREAT immune system and rarely picks up what P has. But the poor thing is off to the Dr. and we hope she gets better soon! I did get a few photos of her today (once she had some Tylenol for her fever). Here is the perfect photo to show the beauty of their friendship! These 2 are so fun to be with! Inseparable Friends indeed!
Here are some current photos of these past few days.
Mike was doing some yard work and Parker was right there by his side!
I love my sweet boys!
Rejoicing that Parker is finally starting to feel better and fingers crossed we stay better for a LONG time!
