Two of my sickies this weekend. Yes, even though Lily didn't feel well, she still insisted on wearing a dress and tights(that girl loves tights;)
This weekend has been spent in our pajamas, sipping chicken noodle soup, and smelling like vicks vapor rub. Five out of the six people living in this house have all been sick(Max is the only one who hasn't caught anything yet), and we all came down with it around the same time! It's been an interesting weekend, especially since both my husband and I aren't feeling well. Definitely not a time where I'd be winning any house keeping awards(not that I ever would, but you know what I mean..)
But even though this isn't the way I had been hoping to spend the weekend, there have been so many sweet moments that I don't want to forget. Moments like dozing off with my two year old, and seeing my four year old try to handle being sick with a good attitude. Watching Jack and Anna try to take care of Lily like mommy and daddy do.
There has also been a lot of sitting around. As a mom, I can get so busy(as I'm sure you do too.) There aren't many times where I can just sit and watch a video or play a game with my kids without feeling rushed to finish the laundry or start dinner. So even though none of us have felt well, I'm so thankful we were able to have this time to rest and recuperate.
So far, I'm the only one who seems to be feeling better. I'm sure I will need lots of grace to get through the next few days or the next week, but for now I'm thankful for a weekend of rest and sweet memories.
