Oh Child

Aaron is out of town, so I could spend the few nights he’s gone cleaning and getting the house into shape since my work is FINALLY done…except…

My littlest one refuses to sleep. Patrick went down right at bedtime…almost to the minute. It was beautiful. Phoebe is wide awake at almost 11 at night.

Sighs. She kills me. I don’t know why she doesn’t like to sleep. Seriously…Patrick sleeps more hours a day than she does! Shouldn’t that be the other way around?

So she’s just sitting next to me, drooling to her heart’s content, and randomly fussing at me because she wants to be held. All. The. Time. 

I am hoping we can go up to my room and she will be content on the bed while I fold laundry…

I want to take them to the zoo tomorrow with the Mom’s Club but seriously…I need sleep little girl. 

Dinner!! All the vegetables are from our bountiful basket…except the lettuce, which was from the farmer’s market!

The rundown:
- Grilled pork chops
- Sautéed asparagus
- Grilled zucchini
- Corn on the cob
- Roasted brussel sprouts (thanks piggyvonninja)
- Simple salad (thanks mywildloves for introducing us to a dressing we are obsessed with)

It was so good and we are so full!!

Road tripping! Typical view of our car…me in the passenger seat, Aaron driving and keeping his arm in the backseat to help Phoebe with her paci, Phoebe’s fussing and Patrick is refusing the food we got. But it’s all good because the high is 79 today, there isn’t a cloud in the sky, there’s a nice breeze and my heart feels good.

ND State Fair

We are on our way! It’s about 1.5 hours from us, but I think Patrick will have so much fun. Plus, Aaron has fond memories of the fair when he was young, so I think he will love it too.

Happy weekend to us! I got up at 445 to volunteer with BB. Then hit a farmer’s market on the way home. We got the kids ready to leave. I made homemade salsa. Washed and cut lettuce. Unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher. Loaded the car. Hit a second farmer’s market. Grabbed brunch.

I have ZERO work work to do this weekend so we are going to enjoy all the family time possible! I’ve been averaging 30+ hours a week for the last month and I’m dead and this weekend is going to recharge my battery for sure!!

Dinner!! Chicken and vegetable stir fry and jasmine rice!! We had tons of vegetables that we needed to us (bok choy and napa cabbage included) so this was helpful in cleaning out the fridge! Plus…delicious!!

He seems to be feeling better today. And best part? His temperature this morning…98.9! Much better than the 102 yesterday! 

I’m cautiously optimistic that he’s better.  😊

Thank goodness she’s out. She’s clutching my hand and sleeping and Patrick insisted on laying by her. Now if she will stay asleep while I move her upstairs, I will call it a win.

He has a fever of over 101 and so not his usual self today. He woke up after napping for 45 minutes screaming and practically shaking. He camped out on the couch like the first picture for half an hour before crawling into picture two, so I put him back I’m his room. He’s snoozing again.

I hope his fever goes down and he feels better soon. We were supposed to go to the ND State Fair this weekend.

Poor little man.
