Sick Week

The week before Saint Patties day, Caleb got pretty sick.  Fever hitting near 103 for 4/5 consecutive days followed by a couple days of a nasty cough.  After 7 or 8 days the virus passed though and we were in the clear.  but that meant that we were homebound for a bit.  Its hard when both parents work and you have a sick kid, normally Grandma would be able to watch them but this week wasn't good for her so Tony and I had to take sick leave.  A couple days I was able to go into the office at 6 a.m. and get 4 or 5 hours in before going home so Tony could go to work and get 4 or 5 hours in at the office.  It's a struggle and all about compromise.  Plus the kids are couped up all week.  Cullen who wasn't sick wasn't laying around and wanted activites.  Caleb was pretty sick so he was laying around most of the time but without just watching TV all day you gotta find activities.  Here's a couple of things we did.

We built a fort using my seamless stand and a king-sized sheet.

Took some macro pictures of Caleb while he was sleeping :)  I'm a good mom aren't I?

We got the real paints out and taught Cullen about the colors of the rainbow.
