Well the kids had low grade fevers Friday night. Since we all just got over a virus that felt like it lasted FOREVER I went into hyper mom mode and enforced a strict rest day on Saturday.
So during ‘restful’ Saturday that I mandated I decided I thought our house smelled funny and was tired of everyone being sick. Hyper mom mode continued. If you can think of it, I probably sent it through the laundry this weekend: shower curtain, door mats, blankets, dog bed covers.
By Sunday nobody had fevers and everyone was bouncing off the walls like crazy people. I didn’t get everyone up and ready in time to make it to church, but I did load them up and got them outside. I can’t believe it’s mid November and has been 70 degrees out.
We met up with my cousin and dear friend to catch up and go on a nature hike and picnic. 1) Because I know these beautiful days are limited. 2) About a year ago my son stopped a bad habit of trying to run off. Since starting school though this August (preK) it’s started again. It’s frustrating, but we are trying to work on it. 3) Do you ever try to make plans with someone and it just doesn’t seem to come together? My cousin and I had been trying for a month or longer! Yay! It came together today.
So my son did run off a lot. I had a bad mom moment where he slid into some shallow water. It was my fault. My daughter tried to take her nap way earlier than usual, falling asleep on the car ride there. So she was woke up mid nap and kind of off her schedule and game. I ended up having to carry her a lot. Despite all that it was still fun. It was just nice to be outside with my kids and one of my favorite people.
How was your weekend?
