Quotes, Quips and Babble



The last few months have been INSANE, I am as close to losing it as I have ever been. But, I guess that is to be expected when dealing with the holidays, death, company, sick children, no sleep, sick self, puking children, teething children, sick husband oh and did I mention sick children. I was fearful that we had a "sick house" you know, over grown with mold or poor air quality, I was ready to pack up and move to the mountains and live off the land- the doctor assured me it was just a bad season (I hope he's right). But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. 3 of 4 still on meds, but almost done, I can see the skies clearing as my children's snot turns from green to crystal clear. There is hope for us all.
My mind has been a jumbled disjointed mess. I make little sense these days, I'm short tempered, flighty and tired. So this post will be a bit of babble and a few of my fondest memories from the last month or so (as clear as I can remember them- I have no idea the timeline of these things, but they were important enough for me to remember, so I share them with you).

Sophia sorting papers from her backpack.
"Ughh these are all from George. I told him to stop giving me stuff"
Me "Why is he giving you all of this?"
"Oh, He's into me."
Me "He's WHAT?"
"He's into me, you know he likes me."
WTF he's into her? They are 5...

Charlie
"Moooo r, Maaaaa m, Ugggg"
Simon
"Ahhhh" HeeHaa" Bah Nana"
***
Abby getting tucked in after a day of puke and fever
"Mommy do you want to hear a sad story?"
"OK"
"There once was a little girl, she was sick and didn't feel good and couldn't go to school. Isn't that sad?"
"Yes it is honey, you'll feel better soon"
"You're the best Mom in the whole world, you take good care of me!"
Oh okay, maybe having stepped in puke and feeling it squish in my toes isn't that bad!

Charlie
"Ughhh. Moom. Ahhh giggle giggle..."
***
Abby after puking in kitchen
"Daddyyyyyyyyy"
"It's ok Abby, stand on that towel and take your clothes off" She then puts on Rich's sweatshirt to stay warm.
"Ok Dad, your the best, you take good care of me"
"Thanks Ab."
" You make cookies with me...This is a nice sweatshirt Dad"
****
Sophia to me one night when I was tucking her in.
" I did it Mommy."
"You did what?"
"I talked to him, I talked to Poppy like Daddy said I could. When I was going to sleep, kind of like I was saying a prayer, I just told him I missed him and I loved him."
Did this make you cry? Because it sure as hell made me cry!
***
Boys at doctors office as Doctor walks into room
Simon look up from playing "Hiiii"
Charlie walking in circles "Muuuaaahhh"- Stomp, Stomp, Stomp of his foot.
***
At dinner
Sophia "Mom you're the best cook in the whole wide world"
Abby " If I were you I would make this every night."
Now if only I could remember what I made???

I do love my life no matter how snotty and puke filled it may be.
