Well, I was up again in the night with a sick Baby B. I've been desperate to keep HH healthy for this busy weekend, so I insisted he go back to bed.
Thus, this morning dawned WAY too early for me.
And then I remembered that Sweet P was supposed to dress 50's for the school Sock Hop today.
We don't own any poodle skirts. So, after some frantic googling, I improvised based on the advice found in this article.
It looked more authentic in person. But, I knew a poodle skirt would have been better.
Still she was excited and her day went well.
Baby B slept in until nearly 10 AM. This should have been a Joyful Moment, but when checking on him earlier, I was accosted by horrific smells emanating from his bed. I decided that sleep was best, however, and that I would face whatever it was when he awoke.
Well, let's just say, worst scenario imaginable and leave it at that.
So, I waited until the current load of soiled bedding and clothing finished, and began a new one with his freshly soiled stuff. Yay.
As you can see, the day was off to a great start for Joyful Moments.
The good news is, I was somehow finally energized and cleaned my entire house from top to bottom. I even cleaned out the dryer hose. What?! Yeah.
And I definitely found some Joyful Moments in finally having a really clean house again.
That, and after his apparent early morning purging, Baby B finally seems to be on the mend and was almost back to his old self again. He even played for a bit with Little M without demanding to be held by me.
Seeing my baby finally begin to recover (and feeling quite a bit better myself) was probably the best Joyful Moment of the day.
Sorry for all the graphic details. It was just kind of one of those days I really had to get off my chest, I guess.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and excellent health this Christmas weekend!
