And some days I just want to go to Target…

24 Oct

It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a post about things I miss. This idea came to mind last week when our entire home ( minus Anna ) had the stomach bug. T started it off on a Saturday morning around 1:36 am and didn’t go back to sleep until his ( earlier than usual ) nap at 11:30 am…oh and he only wanted mommy ūüė•. We set up camp on the couch, then the floor, then back to the couch but he was just so uncomfortable. Once he ate later in the morning he seemed fine. I kept him inside with me for the morning and we got him out in the afternoon for some fresh air. ¬†We thought we were in the clear and had a nice family day on Sunday. ¬†Monday night after baths, Henry just stood over the toilet saying his “tummy was being naughty.” ¬†We were reading stories and getting ready to head to his bedroom at 7:30 and wouldn’t you know, he stopped in the bathroom and started vomiting. ¬†I hadn’t felt good all day and really didn’t eat anything and around 9 pm that evening I was sick. ¬†Of course Henry had just left for Germany so it was a sick mommy to take care of a sick 4 year old…the worst feeling. ¬†Even worse, Henry landed in Germany and started throwing up as well. ¬†UGH!

Tuesday I was feeling much better and little Henry and I had a bum day of doing crafts, coloring, watching a movie and just laying around. ¬† Wednesday morning Henry was all better and ready to go back to school, but our nanny was now sick. ¬†I gave her the day off so she could quarantine herself and after taking Henry to school, Thomas, Anna and I went outside to get some fresh air. ¬†By Wednesday afternoon everyone was better and I had now disinfected our place 3 times! ¬†I really couldn’t eat anything until the weekend, but now I’m good as new.

Ok so back to the things I’m missing lately:

  • It’s now Autumn so I’m missing all things fall…pumpkins, apple cider donuts, apple cider, pumpkin patches. ¬†They sell pumpkins here but it’s just not the same
  • Again, the weather is getting cold and I’m missing my US coffee – the big ole cup of java. ¬†We have a Nespresso which we love, but somedays I just want a coffee with some kind of special creamer in it!
  • Kids clothes. ¬†Henry’s actually in San Fran this week and he took an extra suitcase because buying kids clothes here isn’t as much fun…plus they are ridiculously priced – 1 sleeper can be upwards of $60!!!!
  • Of course, FAMILY, especially when the kids are sick – you just want to be able to call home! ¬†2 more months until we are home for the holidays
  • Target, now that’s a give in. ¬†I mean you an go there and get pretty much anything you need or want!

I have to cut this short since Anna is waking, more later!  But before I get off, when you are missing home, just look out your window and know all will be ok!

    We are currently battling the pass-along-cold. One person starts to feel better and the next person catches it – and it is one that just won’t give up either! Sickness is just no fun!! Hopefully everyone stays healthy around your place!! Love all the pictures the kids are getting so big!!
