The weekend was pretty good, considering it rained and snowed the entire time! Ze man came back after being gone for 2 weeks (because of work) and the kids and I were happy to have him. He even managed to bring us pretzels from Germany. He had a stop-over there and picked us up a few. Sluuuuurp, they are so delish!
(Not the actual pretzels, they got eaten too fast!)
This Monday offered me MORE rain with a touch of wind, it offered an eye infection to my youngest, a pretend stomach ache to my middle child and lazy bones syndrome to my oldest.
If you are a parent or know one (or few), you will know how difficult it can be to get them out of bed in the morning. If it's a weekday! Because same time on the weekend the kids wake YOU up!
I practically had to drag my oldest out of bed this morning, tell the middle child she just had gas (which she proved while I was helping her with her shoes!) and take my youngest on a stroll to the pharmacy. (Just in case sterilized water doesn't work)
I'm hoping I don't have to take her to a doctor but we will wait for morning to find out. It should be interesting, to say the least, since we were appointed a doctor to take care of the family if someone got sick or infected or so on.
Since we moved to Norway we've had no need of him and I shudder at the idea of pronouncing his name. I think it's safe to say, I'm going to get it wrong! I've actually asked a few people if they know of to pronounce the man's name, this is how I assured myself the doctor was a male, and so far I have found no one. So here's hoping I can be charming enough to not come off as a total A-hole.
Of course, none of that might have to happen, if my youngest's infection clears up. Crossing fingers!
But I am proud since my little one is 2 1/2 years old and didn't complain once in our long walk this morning. It might have had something to do with the cookie I got her, though.
As is often the case with sick kids at home, I am running a bit behind today, and I forgot to get dinner out of the freezer.... Hot dogs for dinner! Whoa, wild Monday!!
My editing is close to completion and hopefully I can get this book published somewhere. I'll keep you posted.
Hope your Monday is going well.
