Happy ~belated~ Father's Day to the father of my two babies!! He is the most amazing Dad and I'm so grateful every day that my children have such a wonderful father in their lives. He is so patient, kind, fun and beyond helpful.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to celebrate Father's Day as I had hoped because a nasty flu bug invaded our house and taken us each down one by one. It started with Audrey last week, then hubby and now me. It's been awful! Hoping I have a far speedier recovery than hubby or else this week won't be fun!
On Friday, after Audrey recovered and before I got the flu, we went to the Zoo. It was a particularly wet day but when you promise a 2 year old you are going to the Zoo, rain isn't a good excuse to bail. We managed to stay relatively dry by staying indoors at the butterfly conservatory and the atrium and with umbrellas when we needed to go outside. I brought my rain boots but didn't wear them since it wasn't raining when we got there. That was dumb! My feet got soaked!
On Saturday, I had an amazing facial, which was part of my Mother's Day gift. It was so amazing- I want one every month now! My skin feels so nice. Facials are my favourite spa treatment. Hubby, being the amazing father he is, managed to get Leo down for a 3 hour nap in his crib! That's a first!! Hopefully I can continue getting him to nap in his crib.
That evening I started to feel sick and we had a bad night with Audrey so when I woke up Sunday morning I felt like death. We cancelled on family brunch but the ILs came to get Audrey. We both started to feel better after a bit more sleep and a shower so we ended up going for brunch after all, just late. My SIL made a delicious meal and I wish I had felt better to really enjoy it.
Afterwards we went to a 2nd birthday party for our friend's son. Audrey had a blast playing with the other kids and we had a good time visiting.
I didn't feel well that evening and we had another bad night with Audrey. That girl just hates sleep!!
Hubby stayed home from work today since he still wasn't feeling completely better, but definitely on the mend. I'm worse so I'm so happy he has been here all day to help with the kids- I don't know what I would have done!
I've been napping off and on and surviving on these three items: water, crackers and peppermint tea. Greatest diet ever.
Ok flu- you can leave now.
