So, off and on all day that Saturday, Thing One said she didn’t feel too great. We kept taking her temperature, and it was fine. When we got home from Poppa & Nana’s house, however, it was 100.6. Yupp, she was sick!
This, of course, meant SOMEONE would need to stay home with her on Sunday instead of going to church. Sacrificial mom that I am, I volunteered…Yeah, RIGHT! I volunteered b/c staying home with her meant I could sleep in instead of having to be at church an hour early for the teachers’ service, then teach the 4- and 5-year-olds, missing service and the whole make-the-moms-stand-up-so-we-can-give-each-one-a-flower thing. Hubby even brought me my breakfast in bed! Thing One slept really late, so I got to enjoy a nice, quiet morning to myself.
When Hubby & Thing Two got home, I got to run away for a few hours by myself. (Funny, how when our kids are young, what moms want to do on Mother’s Day is to be AWAY from them, lol.) I went to Barnes & Noble, bought three knitting magazines and a cool canvas bag (thank you, Grandma Ruthie!), then sat and drank an Americano while I read the magazines and knit. After that, I went and tried on some clothes (but didn’t buy anything). Due to Thing One’s being sick, we weren’t able to have dinner with MarkyMark, Bobcat & Andrei, but Hubby grilled the turkey MarkyMark had bought on the Weber and prepared the rest of the meal, too, sending some up with MarkyMark for Bobcat. He even pre-portioned mine and Bobcat’s so we wouldn’t have to think about doing that ourselves! What a swell guy, I tell ya!
Glimpses at my day:
The only bummer was not getting to have a dressed-up-and-looking-nice-for-Mother’s Day picture taken of me and the girls, but I *know* Thing One was glad not to have to wear a skirt, lol.
