In a cruel twist of fate, our household has been struck down with its third vomiting bug in as many weeks.
Somebody hold me.
It doesn’t matter how many showers I have, how many times I wash the sheets, scrub the carpets and mop the floors, I can still smell vomit.
It’s a miracle I haven’t gotten sick, but sometimes us mums just power through, don’t we?! We don’t let ourselves get sick because ain’t nobody got time for that. In saying that, I’ll probably get sick now …
While my little loves have been off colour, we’ve been taking it verrry slow and keeping things as simple as possible.
There has been plenty of snuggling on the couch watching TV. I now know The Wiggles Rockabye your bear song (and the dance moves) verbatim and have at times found myself responding to Dora when she asks a question. It’s not all bad. My Spanish has improved.
When cabin fever began to set in, we ventured into the backyard.
While Smiley blew bubbles, Curly-locks and I practiced the art of clicking your fingers and whistling – two of the things on her bucket list before she turns five.
In the few days between tummy bugs, when we foolishly thought we were better, we ventured to the local shops.
We even went on a bloggy blind date with Bec from Daycare Decisions blog. Bec had spotted me at our local shops a while back and emailed asking if it was me she had seen.
I had cringed as I read her email wondering what I was doing at the time of the said sighting. Was I looking like a dag? Were the kids behaving? Was Smiley having one of her trademark tantrums in the middle of Coles?
We must have been behaving semi-normal because Bec was keen to meet in real life.
After just a couple of hours it felt as though a new friendship was in the making. You know when you meet someone and you just click? Well that’s what happened last Friday.
We not only discovered our youngest two are born just a mere month apart, but they also have the same name and will most likely be in the same kindergarten class. We also worked out that we’ve both lived in Essex, we both love blogging (of course) and live within five minutes of each other.
How cool is that?
Besides that, I’m planning a few super cool surprises for Mummy, Wife, Me readers next month. May is seriously my favourite month of the year – my little old blog will turn two, there’s Mother’s Day and my birthday.
Exciting times ahead! I’m pumped about giving something back next month, so stay tuned!
