A better day

Yesterday was rough.  After a weekend of being sick, and the kids being sick, I was completely exhausted, and I didn’t handle it very well.  (I’m also feeling kind of uncomfortable about having written about it, but if I’m going for honesty, I guess I’ve at least achieved that!)

Today is better.  I slept all night.  The boys slept all night.  We got up at 6:30, and I was feeling a lot better, even then.  B was well enough to go to school today (kind of — after a meltdown at 6:30 and almost falling asleep at the dinner table, I’m not sure he really WAS well enough for school) and Liam and I got to stay in and do nothing today while we work on recovering.

Still, by nap time I felt like it was 10:00 at night.  B, who has made the transition away from diapers for his waking hours, wanted to try napping without a diaper today.  I was exhausted, and the thought of cleaning all the bed sheets didn’t appeal to me, but I also don’t want to discourage him, so he gave it a try . . . and was completely successful.  (Score one for not discouraging him.  As a side note, I am really proud of him.)

Today went well.  I’m still getting over being sick, as is B.  Liam is still sick.  I opted for ordering dinner instead of cooking, and we skipped bath time because both kids were so wiped out.  But today was peaceful and fun.  We had a good day.
