What a week!

Sunday Anthony woke up with a fever of 102, needless to say I stayed home from church cuz he was feeling miserable. It's always so sad to see my kids sick. Monday, Alexandra and I picked my mommy up from the airport and then we all just hung out around home. Anthony was still feeling sick on Tuesday so he stayed home from school and Alexandra was starting to feel warm.

Thankfully she never did get what Anthony had. But by Thursday Owen had a fever and was snotty and coughing and all he did was cuddle in my mom's arms. Sometimes sleeping, but mostly just cuddling. It was sweet to see but I knew he was feeling yicky cuz that is so not like him. Friday I got sick and am, after being able to sleep most of yesterday, feeling better today.
My visit with my mom was good, but it went by WAY too fast, she left Friday. And because the kids were sick, most of her time here was spent doing things like this.... and this...

and more of this...
and this.
But the kids adore her and she was glad to be able to snuggle and cuddle with grandkids that grow too big too fast.

I suspect that she LOVED doing that more than any activites you could have planned. Glad you had a good visit even if it was too fast (ya know... if you moved down here they would be alot closer... just saying... lol)

NO you can't move down there...you need to move here instead. :) LOL

Glad you had a good time despite the sickness. I know we had a similar visit with my mom and brother at Christmas when my daughter got a fever and bad cold Christmas eve. Lots of cuddling! In a way I miss the cuddling since she doesn't do it unless she's sick LOL

Hope you have a better week. :)
