In sickness and in health
(Our fearless leader... )
This past week has been firmly places in the "in sickness" category for sure.
Let me give you the run down:
First Miles came down with a 2 year Molars/Ear Infection/Pink Eye/Common Cold combo.
Next my Aunt Flo came to visit. Lovely.
Then Wylie and I received a not so friendly visit from the Common Cold as well.
That was followed-up by Miles' bad reaction to the antibiotics in the form of a nasty booty rash which required a daylong search for the right diaper ointment and several warm baths.
All of this has been topped off by busy work lives, spilled milk on clean sheets, depleted bank accounts and a To-Do List that is growing, not shrinking, do to lost time and pounding sinus pressure. There have been moments when we felt as if a pox had fallen on our happy home.
Through it all Nathan has managed to love me and the boys extremely well; Searching the city for that dag-gum diaper ointment, cleaning the kitchen at 11 PM on a Friday night and skipping a golf tournament with his dad to see us through. Today he declared WAR on the Pox and I think he is winning. We only had one major spill, I got some sleep, the boys played catch and tonight we had a great home-cooked meal of Stuffed Peppers, Eggplant Fries and Fresh Green Beans. All I have to say is: Nathan is our leader and we will gladly follow.
