We had a bit of a stomach bug hit our home this past weekend + it kind of put a damper on our plans for productivity, but in retrospect, I think a relaxing weekend at home was exactly what we needed. Although, I couldn’t done without the sick babes, that’s for sure.
On Friday night I decided to stay up a little later than normal and watch Mom’s Night Out. It was an adorable movie + I was so excited that I was able to stay up at watch the entire movie. I’m notorious for falling asleep mid-movie. I think it’s genetic, because my dad has the exact same problem. Boy did I regret staying up late when I woke up to Alea throwing up in her bed at 3am… after changing sheets, cleaning up puke, tossing her in the shower and all that jazz I was exhausted. I *thought* I could maybe go upstairs and go back to bed, but Alea got sick again soon there after. This mama ended up calling the couch her bed and I got up with Alea at least 6 times when she wasn’t feeling well.
Side note: Now I’m questioning the whole baby #2 thing. I don’t know if I can handle that getting up multiple times a night again.
Talk about birth control!
Cory had to work Saturday, so Alea and I spent all of Saturday laying on the couch, snuggling, doing puzzles and watching good ol’ Netflix. I survived off of coffee to keep me awake and was crazy bummed that Alea didn’t think a nap was such a good idea, even after asking multiple times. However, if it weren’t for the GI bug, it would’ve been my idea of the perfect Saturday. And it would’ve been nice if Cory was home to snuggle us, too.
Thankfully though, when Cory got home he immediately got to work in the kitchen and made his infamous vegetable beef dumpling soup. It’s a family favorite around here, that’s for sure. He had texted me earlier in the afternoon asking if I wanted “soup, salad + breadsticks for dinner.” I didn’t really take him seriously, but that’s exactly what he made for dinner. So much food, but so much delicious.
And staying true to classic Sunday morning tradition, we enjoyed some sweet cinnamon rolls. Mmmm. Alea “said” she wasn’t feeling well enough to eat them, but boy did she scarf one down. I’m not sure she even tasted it!
Alea’s tummy isn’t 100% quite yet, but she’s getting there! Here’s to a healthier + more productive week, but one still filled with lots + lots of snuggles.
