So, with a dash of FFS I bring you Shiny Things Friday.
Poor M has been out of sorts for a good week or two and last Saturday morning I changed her bum to find two purple spots on the soles of her feet that had me shrieking at Mr S that we had to go to the Dr IMMEDIATELY and ringing the Dr and the Parent Health Line (yes, you can open a confidential file, yes, I've called before, yes, she's breathing normally, yes, she's pink and responding, yes, she's got a temperature, yes, her nappy is WET, yes WHAT THE HELL ARE THE DOTS LADY?). We wound up at the Dr and it turns out it's a viral rash that's related to a... wait for it... virus. Probably Hand, Foot and Mouth. Panadol, water, cuddles. Call daycarer who has to notify the parents etc etc.
A week later and she's a cranky, feverish snotball who either can't sleep one iota or is epically sleeping. A 3 hour nap at daycare? SERIOUSLY? (and after I typed this she pulled 2hrs 45m for me. yessssss.)
And now, Mr S and I are feverish achy snotballs. Mr S declared Millie and I have to Man Colds and himself a Lady Cold. He's gone to work today. I wimped out yesterday and I ache from head to toe today.
So.. the shiny things about this week.
|We've been spending a huge amount of time playing with PhotoBooth on the iPad.|
|Millie PhotoBooths her chompers.|
|Sleepy naps whilst Mama watches her stories.|
|I have been Getting Healthy and taking M on long walks around Huonville. Oh, the view!|
|Watching M discover new things... admittedly I'd rather be sleeping...|
|She's become obsessed with her Bumbo chair. I left the room for 30 seconds last week and she's worked out how to tip the contents of her sippycup into the Bumbo and was having a great time.|
|I've been sewing. I'm so pleased with how this turned out.|
|Millie got mail from Maggie G. More pictures soon.|
