Perfect Moment Monday

This weekend, the kids and I are sick. I seem to have the stuffy stuffy nose that uses many many tissues. My son has the hacking cough that keeps going and going. (Willow seems to have the least amount of suffering, luckily...she just seems to have a runny nose and an occasional cough).

Moment 1: Saturday night, I just could not stand it any longer. I was not breathing through my nose, my husband was snoring. I went downstairs, went on the laptop and just hoped that my nose would finally drain. As I sat downstairs at 3 a.m.--my son came down. He was having similar non-sleep issues. We sat up, looked at a book, went on-line for a game or two and he found a caricature creator and made the whole family--including our turtle. We were up until 4 a.m. It was like a little secret social hour with my son.

Moment 2: Willow has started to say "da da" a lot. Often not necessarily to daddy, but to EVERY male she encounters. But, she only SMILES and says da da to one person and that is Daddy. And just as we think that maybe, just maybe she gets that da da means Daddy--she puts a stuffed giraffe in her mouth and says "da da!".

With your 3 am social hour -- way to make lemonade out of lemons!

Both are beautiful moments.

And I hope y'all are feeling all better now.

I remember my brother calling EVERYTHING dada for quite some time.

Past Times

As we deal with new normals, each of us have our new "past times". After looking for employment, I spend my days running errands...
