I should have known Thursday evening when my muscles started to ache and my throat was sore that the days to come would not go as planned. A prescription did not help much for bouncing back and today, Monday, I am still not 100%. It is probably strep since Charlotte had it the week before last and Thomas was put on an antibiotic last week. Dave needed medicine, too, and all three of us are still stuffed up. Despite the sickness the weekend at my parent’s house was great since two extra sets of hands were there to help with the kids, not to mention feed us and entertain us. One need only walk out the back door for a vacation.
Then Nana got sick. There was no way my parents could keep both kids, as scheduled, this week with my mom lacking energy. So we decided to bring Thomas back and let Sissy soak up the attention. Her brother reminded me when we got home why having one almost 2-year-old is almost as tough as two.
So Dave’s Friday vasectomy is off because there is no way he can even lift Thomas the first few days after one and we’re not sure when Charlotte will return or who is going to watch the kids since their school/daycare ends Wednesday at 1pm!
