Ups and Downs

It would appear I have taken a vacation from blogging. While that is true, I certainly haven’t been taking it easy.

No, instead my time has been filled with other things. Sick kids, cleaning up after sick kids, migraines…

And in spite of all of this, we were able to share some laughs along the way.

Late one evening, Owen, fell victim to a stomach bug. This resulted in frequent trips to the bathroom.

As he sat on the potty, I glanced at the clock. It was after 10:00. He had been trying to go bed for an hour and a half. He would get off the toilet, wash his hands, go to bed, and moments later, come running back to the bathroom. Poor guy.

As he sat his tired body on the potty, he asked me a very serious question.

“Mom, am I just going to sleep here or what?”

With a smile on my face, I tried to assure him.

“You should start feeling better soon.” Or so I hoped, anyway.

“Mom, if you were me, you would just cry, cry, cry.”

Now, I couldn’t help it. I began to laugh as I helped, Owen, off of the potty.

And with that, we went to sleep, sleep, sleep.

Of course the last couple of weeks haven’t been all bad.

No, we managed to deliver a goat – This IS Only At My House remember? And we celebrated my Dad’s 70th birthday.

So, I guess you could say I took a vacation from blogging for life. Life that is full of ups and downs, smiles and frowns.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Only At My House,
