|Good mommy - in healthier, happier times|
Well, it appears that we've been operating in survival mode around here lately. Two weeks ago O came down with her first case of pink eye, which was fine except that trying to figure out who's going to stay home with the sick kiddo is a bit of a nightmare when you have two parents who work outside the home. Then this Sunday we woke up in the middle of the night to a screaming child covered in throw-up (don't worry - no pictures were taken). And while I was staying home with O on Monday, Ben came home sick in the middle of the day and proceeded to spend the entire day in bed. Oh, and did I mention that it looks like O's pink eye is now back again for round two?
So between Ben and O being sick and my exhaustion at being woken up several times a night by an unhappy toddler, there has been some less than stellar parenting going on here. Take Monday night when I turned to Ben and said "crap, I forgot to brush her teeth" and Ben responded by saying "Shhh, quiet. She might hear you and want to brush her teeth." That's right - we were afraid that our child would actually want to brush her teeth and then we would have to get out of bed to help her. That's right. We're awesome parents.
