**Oh what a week it has been! Grayson has been sick with something which has caused him to have a high fever. It was the first time he has had a temperature over 100, and it was not fun! For three days he had a fever….I know that a fever is a symptom and that it’s the body’s way of getting rid of whatever is attacking his little body…but we felt so bad for him. We think he is on the mend…at least he hasn’t had a fever in 24 hrs. What do you do when your little one has a fever? We did sponge baths, we did use Ibuprofen when it was really high, and lots of love!
**On top of him being so sick, work has been crazy and we have both been very busy. It has been an exhausting week juggling work, no sleep, a sick child, and normal every day things. Being a working mom is so tough on so many levels, I am thankful I have a husband that is willing to jump up in the middle of the night, clean up puke, do laundry etc. I am lucky.
**Am I the only mom that let’s their child hang out in the crib in the morning or after nap time for 10 to 20 minutes? He isn’t crying, usually talking or jumping etc…but sometimes I need that extra time to finish cleaning, wake up myself, change clothes etc. Please tell me I’m not alone?
**When Grayson was a baby baby I felt Ike he slept all the time (and he did), and I felt like I had a lot of free time but at the same time I didn’t because I would be washing pumping pieces, showering etc. Now, however I realize back then I had WAY more time then I do now. Grayson is always on the go getting into anything and everything, demanding my attention 24/7 when he is up. therefore, the only time I have to do ANYTHING around the house or do myself consists between 12 and 2 during a nap. Phew! That’s just with one kid….I think when we have more I may be doing more cleaning at midnight or not at all!
**But like my husband said this morning, there will be a time soon enough when he will be playing alone and want to play alone and when he will tell us to leave him alone. So I will enjoy this time now, the house can be messy, the laundry can be dirty, the dishwasher can be full.
**Now, that I talked about Grayson this whole post….I will move on! My garden is slowly growing! I see some lettuce and peas growing! Today in going to go buy some tomato and pepper plants, it’s 2 for $5 at Lowes today!
**In a couple of weeks Curt will be completely renovating our kitchen/upstairs living area! It’s going to look so different and I can’t wait to see the finished project. I will be sure and take pictures!
Well, it’s going to be a lovely day here in Iowa,so I better get going! Whatever you do I hope you have a great day! Enjoy friends!
