Owen's not feeling very well today. We were out at a playdate and had to come home cuz the poor little guy was throwing up. He NEVER throws up (well, aside from the baby puke when he was an infant but that doesn't really count). He fell asleep in the car on the way home so rather than waking him, I just carried the whole carseat (one of the big ones) into our room and let him sleep. SO thankful he slept for an hour and half. He has had a little food and is now back to sleep agian, after having a bath to get rid of the sour milk smell (yummy!) but he thankfully has not thrown up again. He is just really warm and not himself :(
The big kids were GREAT today. There was no whining or fussing or fits when I told them we had to leave (and they LOVE it Ryleigh's and Hugo's). They just got their jackets on and went right out into the van.
Sweet Anthony was so concered about his little brother, wanting to know if he was going to be alright and asking why he was sick. And then as he's climbing into his seat behind Owen "Mommy, is Owen gonna throw up again? Cuz that would make me want to throw up." Ah....life with a sympathetic puker lol!
So we played play dough and stickers and I gave the big kids a bath (cuz it's been a while....) and fed them popcorn, cheese and raisins in front of the t.v. Happily they are all resting now. I promised Anthony a movie night tonight if he actually slept (or was at least SO quiet I thought he was sleeping) during rest time. So I think we are going to be stopping at the movie store when we go pick Troy up from work. There and McDonalds (Troy is out again tonight and I'm tired of making dinner for me and two kids, who don't want to eat anything but cereal anyway...unless it's french fries from a fast food place!)
Today I am still praying for Baby Stellan. Head over to MckMama's blog to read how he is doing. I know they would apprecaite your prayers. My heart aches for this family. I cannot even beign to imagine all they must be feeling right now. Sometimes I wish there was more I could do, but I have never met them, they don't even live in the same country as me. So I will pray, because that is all I can do. But praying is not a little thing.
I am hoping this weekend to be able to get outside and take some pictures. Just random pictures, playing with the camera. I haven't had much of a chance lately but that's o.k. Spring and summer and nice weather will come and then there will be lots of oppourtunities for picture taking out side.
Well, I am off to find lunch seeing as I have been up since 7ish and have yet to eat :) The popcorn the kids had is looking really good right about now!
