About two weeks ago, Adam came down with a “touch” of croup. He’d been coughing and had a bad night with the barking cough that led to time in the bathroom with the shower running and a call to the night nurse. Thankfully, his coughing subsided and we avoided a 2am trip to the ER. I took him to the doc the next day and asked if croup would spread to my other kids. She said that for older kids, it presents as laryngitis.
Fast forward days, and I wake up feeling crummy. The day of Wendy’s field trip, I had a rotten cough and could barely talk. That hung around for about 5 days, compounded, I believe by my annual bout with seasonal allergies. So… all this to say, I’ve been doing a lot of laying around and not much else. Mike has been great about picking up my slack.
We did have a beautiful weekend, tho, and Mike took the kids over to the football field to fly paper airplanes. Sam received a paper airplanes kit and they had fun making them and testing out their models. I dragged myself along but didn’t do much besides sit in a stupor and try and contain my running phlegm factory (sorry, gross, I know).
Wendy’s green flier was the big winner. We also enjoyed a nice dinner with friends on Saturday — our oldest two kids line up, agewise, with their youngest two, so the kids had fun running around together.
On Monday, Grandma & Grandpa were in town, so we had them over for dinner, along with Grandad. It was great to see them, although I neglected to take any pics.
Slowly, but surely, I am feeling better and coming out of my fog. I hope to be better about posting as spring is finally here and it is definitely photo worthy!
