Confession: This is not this past Saturday. I figured you’d rather see this happy version of a Saturday 2 weeks ago: pancakes, shopping, and Whole Foods.
What actually took place on Saturday: tissues, humidifiers, loads of dirty crib sheets, dark circles from sleepless nights, and more unmentionables (I’ll spare you the disturbing mental pictures).
The boys have croup. It hasn’t been pretty. And Ryan and I have officially nominated ourselves for the, “we are DEFINITELY full blown parents now” award. But you know what? It’s been a great excuse for extra cuddles, staying in pjs a little longer than we should, and more family bonding. It’s amazing how coughing attacks followed by vomit spells can make everyone love each other just a little bit more. Oops. And there I went breaking a promise. Sorry friends.
In other news, Gage loves olives. And absurdly strong cheeses, for that matter. Like more than the free cookies you get at the grocery store. We like to classify this as having sophisticated taste rather than odd. Oh you’re right. He’ll also take the cookie!
Just like his dad – not one to ever turn down free food!
