Sick Littles

On our way out to Castle Fun Park yesterday Sophie told us her stomach was burning and her legs were cold. We played for about an hour and decided to leave when we all got hungry.  On our way home there was some construction delaying us by about 10-15 minutes. All the while Sophie feeling hungry and sick. When we came home, Rob brought her upstairs and she proceeded to vomit over his shoulder onto the floor.  Poor monkey!
We all got set up in bed with some shows after a quick bath. Had plenty of naps and some water and apple juice.
Emery was feeling fine until about 7pm when she got sick, then shortly after got a fever. We all fell asleep for the night around 10. Rob and Sophie woke at about 7.
We've been watching shows all day. Emery was back to normal this morning after a few nursing sessions. Sophie finally ate something at 3:30 after denying my suggestions of homemade soup, oatmeal, banana, applesauce, plain broth(she did have 3 sips of it). Rob took a special trip to the store to get his favourite 'sick food' canned beef barley soup and soda crackers. So far it's sitting well. Not exactly what I'd like for her to be eating but hey, its better than nothing I guess. Sometimes you have to avoid reading the ingredients and just get something in the tummy.
I am hoping tomorrow is back to normal and we can resume all the fun we had planned for Rob's week off.

Remember when I won tickets to Shrek: The Musical? It was the girls first play/musical and they had a blast! The music was fun and the characters were great! I especially liked Lord Farquaad and Pinocchio. I haven't been to a play since we lived in Prince George before having kids, we saw Beauty and The Beast and that was the first play Rob had ever been too! I sure miss all the fun productions I got to see and be in growing up!

I cleaned out the fridge the other day!
yes. i. did.
 I even took before and after pictures!
Before: no milk, eggs, cheese, veggies!
After: Shopping done, fridge washed and loaded!

You know I like leggings right? 

Got these bad boys in the mail today!
And then we went to the park for some soccer in our new leggings!
Loving this shot I got. Ready to kick the ball!

Sophie spent most of our time out today chatting up everyone who walked by and petting every dog and cat(!) out for a walk. She just loves people and socializing. She tells everyone who looks at her her name and age and starts up conversations with anyone who will listen. It is amazing to see this happening since I am quite shy and quiet around people I don't know.She definitely doesn't get it from me. It frankly scares me a bit, because it forces me out of my own comfort zone. Emery is pretty much following in her footsteps as well, she repeats everything Sophie says to people, "I Emmy-y, I twooo!". I'm so proud of my girls!

Have I told you I like leggings?

Sophie's swimming lessons end on Thursday. She is going to try out skating, more swimming and either a Creative Dance or Preschool Stage Theatre Class. There are so many programs, it is hard to choose just a few. Emery will also do a swimming and a skating class. I hope my girls find some things early on that they are passionate about and always have something they love to do.


This is not my first rodeo!

I've been around the blogging block before, some of you may remember.

This blog though, is just for everyday happenings. Hoping to hold on to more memories and include the rest of our distant family in the lives of the little girls who adore and miss them.

Kids, food, kids, pictures of kids and food, exercise, selfies, cups of tea and coffee, pictures of my feet in shoes are all things you can expect from the blog.  No reviews and giveaways though, sorry.

Enjoy the random!
