179 It makes a difference

December 3, 2008

It’s eleven in the evening.. we just took the baby up from her bed. She’s boiling!! ..red cheeks.. very high fever.. but happy to be up.. watching dad doing dishes.. making funny noises(the baby.. not the dad) It feels good that she doesn’t seem to be so affected from the fever.. but it made her wake up – and she doesn’t seem to be able to go back to sleep. We just gave her fever reliever.. and a bottle.. and hope that will help her go back to sleep.

The other two are still sick too.. both with ear-infections and coughing.. one with fever – one without. Yeay.. we are one happy family at the moment.. The kids stay home at least until Thursday.

Though there is one thing – that makes the whole difference. We have nice weather!! It’s pretty cold in the night.. but the days are.. well.. not exactly warm.. but quite warm – and sunny. It’s the kind of weather that make you happy.. And this is one of the situations when I’m overly happy that we do have a garden. It doesn’t matter how sick the kids are – I can still go out to get some fresh air!! I can still enjoy the nice weather. And kids… aren’t exactly staying in bed all the time when they are sick.. so they can play outside too. It’s great!!

And also.. we spend the days baking.. Nobody is too sick for baking and doing hand crafts and other stuff.. so we aren’t really miserable.. We are actually having quite a good time..:)



  1. I hope the children all get better soon. At least your making the most of it. You’re such a sweet mom.

  2. thats what I like.. making the best of things. You are a great Mom!

  3. The poor little tykes. I feel so bad for you and for them. There is nothing worse than your kids being sick. At least you’ll get it all over with at once. I’m thinking about you and am glad that at least you have nice weather. It’s snowing here right now and I’m enjoying the view. Everything looks like it has diamonds on them.

  4. You two are really incredible do you know that? Seriously I wish I had had a mom and dad like the two of you growing up!

  5. I hope the kids are doing better now. I have two boys and all the same viruses and infections hit us quite often, though we are on the other side of the world:) What crafts do your children like more?

  6. Lana – Welcome to my blog!
    Yes they are doing better. 🙂
    They like mainly unorganized stuff.. like cutting paper and taping it together .. just practising. Also they like cutting pictures out of greeting cards and magazines and collect them in a book, or putting up on the wall. I guess we’ll do more serious stuff when they get older.
