Yesterday i wanted to take some time to ~create~
which is already a bit challenging with a 3 month old in the house!
the older kids ( 9 & 7) are great at entertaining themselves…i’ll post some of their creations another time.
…but what made it more challenging this day is that Luca my 2 year old was a bit out of sorts this day.
so this is what happened next 🙂
He ended up falling fast asleep while i held him ~ multi~tasking cuddles and drawing…heck, i’m multi-tasking as i write this!
his sister Lili took these pictures because she thought it was cute
Rowan was content playing on the floor beside me -:-
Turns out though Luca’s off day became a challenging night ~ running a fairly high fever by the ~feel~ of it (i blame teething & pushing molars)
he struggled all night with seeing & feeling spiders!
perhaps the high fever brought on some delirium ~
or something much beyond our scope of understanding gets activated with fever’s
whatever the explanation it was a long night for Mama and Papa and Lili who decided to join sleeping with us -:- except noone really slept!
~ applying cold cloths & trying to comfort him ~
i was grateful for her help though, especially after daddy went to work – he already leaves the house super early due to the forestry work he does, but this morning he got up at 3:30am (hardly morning if you ask me) to get ready.
this is us today ~ me trying to nurture 2 young needy beings – nursing and comforting them in their own way
of course, the baby Rowan slept like a rock last night* its like they like to alternate…eh!
So, i break out the willow tincture i made (fever/pain reliever) and hope he’ll drink the Yarrow tea.
it’s so hard to see our kids so out of sorts ~ especially with this little one who is usually such a bright light* & jovial spirit
…and very quirky too!
So on we go…keep moving forward
hoping for healing energies to mend this rough patch ——————–>>> and that it passes quickly!
maybe some sleep would be nice…ha.
Life is like that though ~ all or nothing sometimes ~ bend or break & then there’s
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
