Snow was unquestionably the highlight of this week! In fact, it would have been quite bleak otherwise. I was sick at the start of the week, along with Lily. I got better in time to play with the kids in the snow for a couple blissful days before Johnny – and then Lily again – got sick. There were three nights this week where I got nearly no sleep, looking after sick kids – and one day that an utterly miserable Johnny and Lily spent almost entirely in tears. At one point my two kiddos who are typically best friends were fighting over a single sheet of black construction paper – and, of course, no other sheet of black construction paper would do. I should point out that on that particular day, we had no snow – only dreary grey skies and pouring rain. Mike and Emma miraculously stayed healthy, and Emma enjoyed a play date with a friend as well as a fancy movie theater birthday party! Her valentines cheered all of us up, too.
I am so grateful that my kids are starting to feel better! How was your week – healthier than ours, I hope?
