It finally happened.  Our family got sick.  I haven’t been under the weather since morning sickness 16 months ago.  Miles has thankfully never had to deal with being unwell.  And then this weekend, bam.  We’re all out of commission.

Tim and I suffered fever, chills, and strange eye-ball pain.  Miles has been normal temperature, but has been sneezing like crazy (snot-nosed little kid!) and just screaming at the top of his lungs for no reason.  He’s been able to sleep a bit more than usual, void the 10:30pm and 4:30am wakeups, which helps me rest and recover.  Luckily Tim got out of the woods within 3 days, so I am hoping to be up and functioning tomorrow.  In the meantime, I have a chocolate banana bread in the oven and plan to bake my way well.

I am so thankful for our health.  I realize that to go 9 months without any serious illness makes us so lucky.  Something good has come of this, a gratitude for our health and wellness.
