Valentine's kinda sucks this year

I was so excited for Valentine's this year. FOURTEEN YEARS with E on the 14th! It am so lucky! Such a long time! So exciting! I had outfits planed for the kiddos and even a little photo shoot in mind.

But alas, life happens.

E has been traveling a lot for work. Weekly trips since the start of 2013.

Also, since the start of 2013 we've had the stomach flu (which I battled alone, due to another work trip) and a long cold depressing month of January.

February looked brighter.

Then, after Juliet's birthday party on Sunday she got sick. Really sick.

I held off taking her to the doc because I kept thinking it would pass. Today I finally took her in and she has RSV. A very scary virus that can land babies in the hospital. Oh yea, and she has an ear infection too.

She's been up hourly at night and up for the day at four a.m. every day this week. And I've done it alone. Just me.

Today, actually was not all bad. E got home after being gone all week. And having an extra set of hands when trying to put two kids to bed, feed two kids dinner, and bathe two kids is so wonderful. Especially when one kid feels like hell.

We are still in the thick of it. Juliet is doing ok, no hospitalization, and sleeping in somewhat long chunks at night.

But I'm really excited for this week to be over and to have my bunny back to her happy easy self.
Hey look, at least she's in pink pjs. She looks pretty miserable here doesn't she. She was. 


  1. Man, I'm sorry to hear that everyone has been sick and that it has been a rough week! Feel better and enjoy the weekend!!!

  2. My heart goes out to you! I have been following your blog and love it. My little guy just turned 1 too and his birthday weekend was the only weekend he hasn't been sick practically since Christmas - yes croup over Christmas bummer! Hang in there, and hopefully spring will bring healthier times for the little ones!

  3. I hope sweet Juliet is feeling better! My Kade had RSV, phenomena and reactive airways disease about three weeks ago. He was hospitalized for eight days! This sure has been a yucky Utah winter. Hope we see Spring on the horizon soon. Much love from another Utah mama <3
