Two sick kids

Both of them have colds, but the girl developed a fever and threw up before dinner. So off to bed with her. You know she is sick if she willingly goes to bed. I can't imagine either of them will sleep well though. He was up a lot last night because he was so congested. This will be one of those nights to just get through.

Whenever they are sick I am always reminded how much worse it could be. There are many worse things than colds and some vomit. I will probably need to tell myself that at 3am.

I don't want you

Ah, it was only a matter of time. When I went in to get the girl from her nap (yes!) she exclaimed "I don't want you. I want daddy". She seemed a little put out when I explained that daddy was out getting groceries with the boy. But at least she still allowed me to give her a cuddle. :-)

Visit to the sugar shack and a dinner tantrum

You would think that the two things would be linked but we managed not to consume any sugar during out sugar shack (really a maple syrup farm) visit. We did however enjoy the wagon ride and petting zoo. It was a beautiful day and a perfect time to be out of the city.

No, the tantrum was brought on by the girl not having a nap. This is the second time this week that she hasn't napped and I live in fear that we are now on the slippery slope to no naps. I'm not ready. I need that 20 minutes a day when they are both napping. But I am not sure what to do. Can this decent into no naps be stopped?

What should I say?

I was thinking about why I decided to start a blog and what I would say on it. I was thinking about all this while nursing the boy (because what else is there to do) and decided that I want to talk about being a mom and wife, my kids and anything else that happens to me in my day while I am with the kids. I am bad at keeping a diary so maybe I won't be any better at blogging but I am looking forward to trying.

Today I want to say that I am glad it is the weekend because it has been a long week with a sick two-and-half year older and a six month old with a new tooth coming in. My husband is home and spring is coming so the glass is half full right now. Check back with me tomorrow.

I'm doing it!

I feel like I resisted blogging for a long time but now I am doing it. But not right now because the boy is wiggling on my lap.
