Although let it be known - I AM NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THE PINK EYE! Sully had a bad case of bacterial pink eye and praise God no one else caught it. #miracle #seriously #itsamiracle
We've been swapping germs back and forth for weeks, but this most recent croupy cough thing has been the straw that broke the mama's back. I was furiously cleaning and sanitizing around all the sickos in a desperate attempt to keep the crawling, thumb-sucking baby from catching it. But alas...she too is now slinging snot and barking like a baby seal.
And you know what? I'm so relieved. She caught it. There's nothing I can do now but ride it out, and I finally feel like I can
Last week I shared this pic on Instagram, along with my embarrassing admission of toddler pouting that I wouldn't be able to go on our annual "fancy" date to my husband's work anniversary party because of sick children. I had it all ready to go - the black jumpsuit, the bling, and the shoes. Oh the shoes. They were going to be so sad.
But wouldn't you know, a few prayers later we had a blessed 24 window of good health where the first round of victims recovered and we were able to sneak out for the evening.
Our babysitters called towards the end of the night because Jack woke with head and ear pain marking the start of round two, but we. went. out. And drank wine. And enjoyed good company without anyone coughing on us. #glorious
Still, I couldn't understand why I felt so exhausted. I wasn't sick (yet)...but as we looked back at the calendar, our family has been fighting illness and/or tending to a teething baby (read: not sleeping) since before Christmas. Guys, I didn't even know it was February. I lose all sense of time and space and responsibility when we're down for the count and out of our routine.
So, here's the crux. I've been working on transitioning House for Five over to the new House for Six site between caring for sick kids and feel so defeated by the S.L.O.W. progresss. But I also have to admit that I am a perfectionist at heart and perhaps I should just share it already without it all being...perfectly done.
Yes, I should probably do that. So here's a sneak peak at the new logo that's influenced the rest of the blog redesign. It feels simple, fresh, and fun...and true to heart of this blog.
I'm going to do some more clean up on the back end of the new site and I can't wait to make the official switch to House for Six with you all next week! You may start to see some things switching over on our social media profiles but hopefully it will all be a smooth transition on your end.
I hope you've all been ringing in your New Year germ free and have dug your way out of any snowpocalyptic tundras by now! I truly appreciate your patience with me as we get the new site up and for your encouragement over social media these past few weeks. I don't think this homebody has ever been so ready to get back to the daily shuffle.
