Monday | The Life of K: Monday

Monday, October 29, 2012


Here I am on the other side of a week without J around.  I survived.  The kids survived.  It wasn't always pretty but we did it.

Things really turned around Friday.  The kids slept in and after a lazy start to the day, my friend SH came over with Little JH and Baby E.  My two just love Baby E.  They couldn't get enough of her.

We took the kids to the park.  Little J held Little JH's hand while Baby K and Baby E got pushed in the stroller.  The kids got to play and SH and I got to chat.  It's nice to have friends step up, come over and make the day go by a little faster.

Keeping with my resolution to watch less tv and get out more, I took Little J outside before Baby K woke up that afternoon.  We were playing out front when J got home.  Little J couldn't even wait for him to get out of the car before giving him a huge hug.  Baby K was excited to see her dad too.

He brought with him noisy Halloween books that have since become favourites.  We had a nice dinner and relatively normal night until Little J got sick.  It came out of nowhere, but we dealt with it and Little J settled down with fresh sheets, a new blanket and his dad's bear.

The rest of the weekend was a bit of a blur.  With no swimming lessons Saturday morning, we were free to stay home and be lazy.  We got some cleaning done and regular weekend stuff.  We also threw in a trip to the Science and Tech museum, a stroll through a nearby mall, and a quick trip to the Agriculture museum.  Last night was dinner with J's family with cake.

Unfortunately though Friday night wasn't the only time Little J was sick.  Since then he's puked once a day but is otherwise acting normal.  It was only this morning that he was actually acting sick.  So we spent the morning in our PJs watching movies.  I don't mind a lazy day I just hope he feels better soon.  I hope the rest of us stay healthy.

I'm glad J is home.  I really missed him, especially during the busy after-work-before-bed time last week.  It was so nice having friends and family help out but there's nothing like having my little family together under one roof again.

Here's to a happy week, friends!
