This has been the week of "COLE".
My intentions were to spend lots of time doing special things with him.
School started for Chase and Claire and it was going to be just the two of us.
The week started off as planned.
I took Cole and a friend to the Splash Park only to discover that it was closed.
So they spent the afternoon frolicking in my sprinkler.
Water is water...right?
Tuesday we went to the library for story time.
We spent some time on the computers and checked out books.
We rented a movie and I picked up one of Cole's cousins to watch it with him and play.
Wednesday was supposed to be a day at the park.
Thanks to the remnants of Tropical Storm Fay...that didn't happen.
Instead we played games on the computer, played a few board games, and raced cars and trucks all over the house.
All while keeping an eye to the sky because we were under tornado watches ALL DAY!
On the way back from picking up carpool I looked back at Cole and noticed he had dark circles under his eyes.
Later that night.... the fever came.
The next day it was headaches and throwing up.
So much for Cole's special week.
His special week turned into his sick week.
Yesterday he was so miserable.
He couldn't get comfortable.
Watching the television or computer hurt his eyes.
And all he wanted was to be held and cuddled.
That is right friends...I held, rocked, cuddled, and doted on my baby.
He let me hold him to read books.
He requested we read in the rocking chair.
Be still my heart.
We even took a nap together.
I can't tell you the last time that happened.
I hate that he felt so bad.
I wish he had been well.
But the quality time I spent with him yesterday made the whole week for me.
Maybe the whole year.
So thanks for understanding and giving us that time.
I will be back next week in full blogger mode.
See you then.
