Daily Diary – March 3 2010

Love and adore these flowers more and more everyday.

So Nathaniel woke up happier today.

But he was still cranky a bit.

On and off all day. Then in the afternoon, when he woke up from his nap, I realized he was hot again. I took his temperature and it was 102.5. Off to the doctor we went. He has an ear infection. Which is really odd since he didn’t have a runny nose or any congestion anywhere. Even the doctor was very confused. Now he’s on antibiotics. Ugh. Ten days.

It’s been a rough few weeks here. After my grandmother, my great aunt passed away. I got sick. Then we had visitors, then Nathaniel got sick and I am busy at work and feel like I need a vacation for a bit. Just a pause button so I can catch up and then restart life. Oh well. This, too, shall pass.

Note to Self:
I worry so much about the kids and seeing them sick. It’s worse than when I am sick and especially bad when it’s Nathaniel since he can’t speak and tell me how much or where he’s hurting. It makes my heart break into pieces and I start imagining the worst each time. I know it’s not constructive and I know there’s really nothing more I can do but the helplessness is so upsetting. Seeing your kid in pain is really a terrible feeling.

Three Things I’m Grateful For:
1. I was able to finish a small errand on my list today but one of those that I’d been putting off for a long time, so I am thrilled.
2. I am so grateful that David is the greatest kid in the world. He helped me so much today when I was so worried about Nathaniel. He played peek-a-boo with him in the car. He was quiet when I needed to focus. He’s just such a joy.
3. I am thankful for the quiet moments in my day. Lately I need them a bit more than usual.

Two Things David’s Grateful For:
1. David got to have lots of iPhone time today when I was at the doctor’s. He doesn’t usually get to play on it but today was an exception.
2. And he got to have story time with mommy in the morning right when we all woke up, we snuggled up in my bed and read a book of poems. He was so happy, he thanked me 6 hours later again. (Honestly this should be on my list too, I really enjoyed snuggling with them both so much.)
