P is for Pitiful!

There are few things more pitiful than a sick child. OK, maybe a sick family! No, the kitchen fairy did not make a stop by our house this week. But the sick fairy came and unpacked her bags for a week long stay. Since last Wednesday, someone in our family has been sick in some form or fashion. Thankfully, I was hit the least and was not actually sick but just felt like a train had hit me and was completely energy zapped. I think I could have slept for 2 days straight. I didn't even make our bed for 2 days, and while I'm the first to admit that I am weak in the house cleaning department, I am OCD about making the bed every day. PRAISE THE LORD we are all better! Although we did miss one day of school, church, and Bible Study, I am definitely not complaining. It could have been a whole lot worse!

She is still not 100%,but improving. I did not pose her in these pictures. She is usually nonstop-on-the-go, but actually took it upon herself to seek refuge on the couch. She has the absolute worst diaper rash I have ever seen and literally shakes and screams when we change her. Talk about breaking a mama's heart. AC never had diaper rashes so this is a new experience. Thanks to Denise for introducing us to Resinol, which has helped a bunch. Although with this one, we had to resort to a prescription cream.

Owen accidentally headbutted Anna Clare in the mouth and when AC started crying, she instinctively went to hug her....sweet sisters!

And this is what we found when we were loading up for school this morning...

"Turkey" is one of his many nicknames for her!

If that won't make you smile and get your day off to a great start, what will? :)

That is so pitiful seeing O. with those big ol' eyes just plumb tuckered out!
The chalk is the cutest thing ever! I'm going to steal the idea and do it for Ben!
Thanks for the link in your post. :)
I hope you all have a restful week!

Too sweet of a baby girl to be sick. This must be diaper rash week because hayes is in the same mess...he wont even hardly sit down. Maybe your weekend will be better!! What a sweet husband with a sweet message. Sometimes that's all you need to make your day...maybe they should all think of that more often..:)
