When you have a sick mommy....

First, let me start off by telling you about my fun day BEFORE I got sick. For my birthday, Nick's family gave me 2 things....Season 1 of Glee (which I've definitely watched already since I received the DVD's last Saturday night!) and a gift card to get some maternity clothes. I'm still kind of in that in-between stage of regular and maternity clothes, but I definitely needed some pants, so Wednesday, I took Cole to the mall and we did some shopping. It's getting a little harder to shop with Cole now because he always wants to grab at everything and not stay in his stroller. So, I thought I'd text Casey to save some time....
Me: "Casey, what size pants to you get at Motherhood?"
Casey: "Depends on the pants, they all vary"
Me: "You are NO help, I wanted to get through this shopping trip without trying clothes on"
So needless to say, I had to take Cole into the dressing room with me and I guess he stayed pretty entertained, laughing at me, pointing to my belly saying "baby" and trying to put some of the clothes on himself. He really was a good sport so I decided to take us across the way and get......

Yes.....CINNABON!!! One of the greatest things ever made. Look at that box of goodness, YUM!!!
Cole also enjoyed the roll, even after I threw the box away he kept saying "more more".
Now, almost every winter, I get the sinus crud. Wednesday evening I started feeling the drainage...yuck! I don't think I slept at all Wednesday night because I couldn't breath, my throat hurt and my head felt like it was going to explode. Normally getting sick like this is not a big deal, I take drugs and it quickly passes. It's a little different when you are pregnant! I know there wasn't a lot I could take and when you have to keep a toddler entertained but all you want to do is lay on the couch and not move because it hurts to move, it makes for an interesting day. So....this is how our day went....

I stuck Mary Poppins in and he was fascinated!!! I really didn't think I could handle watching Elmo or the Sprout channel all afternoon so I put in something that I like watching too.
I also had about 3 loads of laundry to fold that had been sitting on the couch for days so I sat on the floor and folded laundry. Cole wanted to help...although, his helping usually involves unfolding everything I've already folded.
He also thought it was funny to put my underwear around his neck along with Nick's pajama bottoms.

For dinner, I (for the 2nd time this week) popped in some Eggo waffles and didn't even bother putting him in his booster seat. He hasn't wanted to sit in his seat lately and I didn't have the energy to fight with him about it, so I let him sit in the big chair. However, I did threaten that if he got down before he was done, that he'd have to go back in his booster and he stayed till it was all gone! Good job Cole!
I did manage to go the store and get a few things to help me feel better. I got a Vicks humidifier which rocked my world last night!!!!! Sudafed (didn't help so much), tylenol (not sure if that helped either), orange juice (which made me want to vomit) and the greatest invention ever.....Kleenex WITH Vicks!!!
With the humidifier right next to my bed and those vicks kleenex that was stuck up my nose half the night (lovely, I know) I breathed so much better and actually got some rest. Granted, I slept with like 3 pillows propping me up but as long as I could breath, I'd be ok with whatever!
I still feel yucky today, like I just want to split my head open, scoop out all the junk and put my head back together. Hopefully it goes away soon and it doesn't spread to the rest of my family.
One funny thing that happened last night, I had been in bed since about 7:30, but around 11:00 I got up to use the restroom, I checked the video monitor to check on Cole and I noticed something funny.....I walked out to the family room and told Nick to check on him and sure enough, Cole had unzipped his pj's, gotten his legs out and taken his diaper off. Yikes, that could have been bad news had we not noticed it before morning! He has really been into taking his clothes off lately, maybe they need to invent pj's with the zipper on the back, ha! I told Nick that next time he needed to take a picture :)
We have a few fun things going on this weekend so let's all pray that our household gets and stays healthy!!!
