Um. Anyone seen my days?!?!?!? Seriously. They have zoomed by faster than light the past few weeks! I'm vibrantly thrilled that it's February..but I'm also a bit stressed.
Today is no exception.
Boston hasn't been feeling very well the past few days and today I though..hm..we're suppose to fly out on Wednesday-I better take him to the doctor just in case his ears are all messed up.
Bad MOM strike ONE.
That joyous mommy guilt took over. What a jerk I am!!! We get there-and not only does he have an ear infection..but he has the FLU!!
So totally bummed.
The doc gave us a prescription and I jetted to the pharmacy. It's the ONLY drive up window around as this poor kid was still in his PJs and whining for me to hold him. So of course I didn't want to drag him in there.
I felt so bad. They kept screwing up our order and we waited...FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF. I mean, I didn't want to get him home-then have to drag him back out! So I was destined to get that prescription.
He couldn't nap...and him being sick is the most pitiful thing ever. I actually gave him his Valentine's last night. This totally soft bear the size of him, a little candy & an adorable little book.
Needless to say-today this kid got a couple extra big presents (from my garage of goodies) and more hugs, kisses & holding than anyone EVER! Even on Valentine's Day.
I feel bad. Last year-we both got the flu shot and we BOTH got sick. This year-I decided not to get the shots..and he gets the flu!!!!!!!! Sometimes I feel like I can't win.
But I do remember...when I was sick as a kid. Even though I felt like poo..there was nothing better than having my mom love all over me.
Yeah, dad's are great......but nothing like a special mom.
So that's exactly what I did.
Then my special Valentine came home...and I made him Lobster. I've never made it before-but it turned out AWESOME!! We ate on these adorable heart shaped plates that I got when we first started dating...hm. like 2004?!?! Yeah. 7 years ago.
That's kind of fun to think about.
I love my Valentine. I'm so glad that our lives are so much better.
I have some serious shortfalls...but that man still finds me attractive. Inside and out.
Thank you God. For the best two Valentine's a girl could ask for.
