We headed to Seattle this past weekend to visit with some friends and catch up with some family! I hadn't seen my sister since her engagement so it was nice to see her - and her ring! - in person! We even treated ourselves to an evening out with friends and no kids! Thank you Molly and Kevin for letting us sneak away for a bit!
We headed out Friday after school. Grace was finally feeling better. She missed two and half days of school earlier in the week because of persistent cough that was just nasty. It made for a pretty sleepless week for all of us. Grace dressed herself to celebrate being healthy!
Normally, the sun does not appear in the Seattle skies until after Fourth of July! But this winter has been nuts, so the sun was shining the entire weekend! It was amazing!
It was nice to get outside - the beach no less - and have everyone healthy!
At least for five minutes.
Charlotte fell asleep five minutes into breakfast - foregoing blueberries (her fav!) and pancakes.
Choosing sleep over food? I should have known we were riding a sinking ship.
Saturday she was pretty lethargic and Sunday she slept through lunch and most of the car ride home. She was awake just long enough to take a few selfies on my phone!
At home, we checked her temperature and it was elevated. The fact that she chose sleeping over eating was proof alone that she was sick. But the cough, watery eyes and shivers soon followed! And you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that if a kid sleeps all day, nighttime is going to be challenging.
So needless to say, we are kicking off another week no sleep, a lot of coffee and a sickie in the house home from school. Typically, the girls have piano on Mondays but we haven't been in over a month and a half because they've either been battling a cold or pink eye. I'm serious! For such a mild winter in these parts, we've certainly entertained every "bug"imaginable.
Bring on spring and healthy children.
Sleep wouldn't hurt either.
