Holy cow, gang. This week was a doozy. I mentioned in a few times on IG stories, but in case you missed it — Henry got his tonsils out a week ago today. And helping a toddler recover from a tonsillectomy (and an adenoid removal!) is intense. I remember having my tonsils and adenoids out when I was little, and I still remember that pain. To see your little dude dealing with that pain is so heartwrenching. And while he’s old enough to understand what’s going on, you just can’t expect a toddler to calmly withstand a procedure like that. He’s been a total trooper, trying to be up to his usual hijinx, but it’s just tough. Especially at night — not a lot of sleeping has been going on in our house lately!
And of course, darling Mags picked this week to bring home a nasty strep throat germ, so suffice it to say we’ve got our hands full. I’m pretty sure if you caught a glimpse of our household in the middle of the night it would just look like two adult zombies stumbling back and forth between the kids’ rooms, rocking and shushing and doling out medicine all night long.
But I have high hopes for this weekend — we cleared all of our plans and we’re just focused on staying home and getting these babes of ours a little closer to 100% healthy. Maybe someday I’ll do a post on how we’re dealing with Henry’s recovery and how to help a toddler get through it. Although I’m not sure we nailed any of it, so maybe that’s better left to another expert! Haha!
In any case, hope you are super healthy and get to enjoy a fun spring weekend, wherever you are! xoxo
