We had a wonderful trip to Austin over spring break & got to hang with Dale's sister & her daughter. It was great. The kids all got along & we toured the capital building. There was a protest going on, we saw the senators doing their thing & I lost my cell phone on the grounds. After a few minutes of freaking out and a quick prayer to St. Anthony, we set out to find it. Less than 3 minutes later my phone was safe in my hands again. Two hours later it broke & I had to buy a new one. True story, I promise! The best thing for Grayson was using Madie's backyard zip line! Brian wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole, but G loved it!! Brian's favorite thing was getting into Madie's dresser drawer where she keeps her treasures. Brian never did get the chicken pox, I started my migraines again & am now doing much better--this is where modern medicine ROCKS and I am definitely taking a postpartum doula training class in June!
It is amazing how two little words can mean so much. I heard them spoken to me at least three times today and each time, my world got a little bit brighter.
One was from a parent for tonight's first communion class, one was from a parent from my preschool and the last was from my son. He told me thank you right before he fell asleep. I asked him for what and he responded with a gentle, "Just thank you".
These are the moments that make your heart lighter and filled with joy.
Yes, you heard right. We have chicken pox in our home. Grayson has officially gotten it twice now and both cases have been mild. Thank goodness. It was really fun to have a week off of school & hang out with G. He is a really smart & fun boy to hang around.
On the flip side, we are now in the 2-3 week wait to see if Brian will get the chicken pox. The best thing he has going is that with him still nursing, there is a chance it won't be sooo bad and the fact that we purposefully delayed all his immunizations-he may not even get that shot at all.
No chicken pox parties at this point...maybe in a week or so.
