This week has definitely been up there with one of our most testing as parents. Of all the things that I can cope with; tantrums, lack of sleep, nappy explosions, there’s one thing that makes my stomach churn. Sickness. I’ve been dreading the day a stomach bug hits us, so you can imagine what happened this last week…
Having spent most of the week either being sick or dealing with sick, I can assure you it still makes my insides do funny things. It’s also meant a bit of a dull week in our household which is something I’ve felt guilty about. Luckily, Dave managed to mostly avoid it whilst I curled up in the bed for 48 hours groaning, so there’s been lots of father and son time. Which to this kid is unbelievable, Daddy is definitely number one at the moment!
The boys did some gardening, walked the dog, built forts and cuddled on the sofa watching tractor videos. All the things a toddler could want from life! It made me realise just how precious our weekends are together, particularly for the two of them to spend some quality time together. In a bleary, post illness state, I got this cheeky photo sent to me from one of their favourite places, the park. I don’t know why I was worried about him having a rubbish time whilst we were ill, just look at the smile on his face!
