.....use the time at home to do Christmas photo shoots.
Okay I'm kind of joking...but only kind of.
Monday morning Ryan woke up with a stuffy nose and slight cough which quickly turned into a mild fever and green gunky eyes and then climaxed with screaming that her ear hurt around lunchtime. A quick call to the doctor resulted in a non-brushed hair mom and two kids basically in pajamas with leftover breakfast stains being thrown into the car for a 2pm appointment to get her checked out. We have our first ear infection and conjunctivitis case. Luckily, she's doing much better but that's meant that we've had an entire week at home and oh my heavens, we are going a tad stir crazy.
Sidenote: Have you ever tried to keep a 2 year old from touching, kissing, and coughing on their 3 month old sister....utterly impossible. Praying those breastfeeding antibodies are doing their job!
So what's a Mom to do? Well I guess the normal answer would be catch up on paying bills, folding laundry, and cleaning house. But, that's really not a good time so Christmas themed photo shoots with my soup-can ruined iPhone camera were a must (no joke a can of soup fell off a shelf onto my phone and cracked the screen, what luck!).
Without further ado, the photo montage entitled "Mom's Bored And The Christmas Decor Is Out."
You guys, it's only December 3rd...I think I may have a Christmas addiction problem.
