Yesterday was my works Holiday Fiesta. 3rd grade was in charge of planning this years holiday party. We decided to have it in January, because December is just a busy month. Day of the party and Emma Girl wakes up with a stomach bug. Ian's out of town, so I had to stay home. Total bummer. We ended up renting the Minions movie (again) and I told Max we could have a Minions Marathon. He asked how long it would last and I said about 6 hours. (Minions, Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2) He said, "Woah, I don't think I can stay up that long." We didn't actually make it through all the movies. Emma Girl lived off of pedialyte and snuggles yesterday. This morning she finally ate a sandwich for breakfast. Emma was thoughtful and shared her stomach bug with me. So sweet that girl. Sharing is not always caring. I'm hoping it's just a 24 hour thing. She seems to be doing okay this morning. Knock on wood.
We had a dance party and were listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks radio station. Max put on his new hoodie, a baseball hat backwards and was dancing up a storm. Then he stopped and faced me and asked seriously, "Do I look cool Mommy?" He totally did.
Emma tried having some fun, but it didn't last long. She was a hot mess. She was full of tears and everything made her cry. Everything. By the end of the night I wanted to join in on the crying. Thank goodness Ian gets home today.
Can you believe there's only one more week in January and we're on to the next month? I always feel like time is moving by so quickly, but throw working full time into the mix and I swear I blink and the month is over.
