An overheard conversation...
Home Alone

Bwaaawk bwawk!!

On Monday morning, as I was helping Anthony get ready for school I noticed 2 pimply things on the cut from where he had fallen last week.  I hoped it wasn't some weird infection and then sent him off to brush his teeth.  As I was inspecting his pearly whites, I noticed another spot on his lower jaw and another on his neck and another and another down into the collar of his shirt.  CHICKEN POX!!  I knew it right away because there had been a few cases at school.   I took him to the doctor later that day which was quite the experience as it was at 7pm with 3 tired and hungry boys and then off to the pharmacie to get our enormous bag of goodies. 

Tuesday was a bit rough as he was more tired than anything but the itchies wouldn't let him nap.  He has spots on his eyelids and in his throat so we really can't do much to help relieve the itch.  Same thing that night.  So, of course, that means that I didn't nap or sleep that night.  Yesterday, he was feeling much better.  Especially after taking a 2hour nap in the morning and a 4hour one in the afternoon, lucky boy!!  I did get 1hour in there though ;)  Last night he was up and playing Webkinz until 11pm but then slept soundly until 7am.  He's not allowed to go to school until late next week, but I'm sure he'll be fine come Monday.

I'm actually glad that he's got them now and that he's probably infected the other  2 and they'll start getting spotty in about a week...  they have to get them sometime...  The only problem is that this weekend is Julien and Henar's wedding and Anthony (along with his brothers and all his cousins) is standing for them :P  Plus, Emilienne broke her collarbone, so I guess they'll have to hide those two at the end of the procession ;) 

Matthieu is leaving and flying down with the boys tomorrow night.  I'm too far along to travel, which sucks, but I'm actually looking forward to a weekend alone to get crafty!!  I just got a nice box of Christmas Flair goodies today and I've got lots of projects that I'd like to finish up before Moose comes along.  Only 5-6 weeks left people!! 

Oh and sleep!!!  I am sooooo excited about 2 complete nights ALONE!!  No little bodies crawling into my bed in the middle of the night, little bodies that smell sweet and cuddle close but wriggle and kick nonetheless.  Two mornings that I can get up when I want, not when a little voice says 'beckfest, Mommy!  Come!'    I can take naps when I want, not when I can squeeze one in.  I plan on being a very rested gal come Monday...Chickenpox1 Chickenpox2
