Here he is (with his blanket) waiting for the doctor to come in. He let me take pictures of his tummy (and shhh! His secret freckle!) and his leg so we could remember his rash. Within minutes the doctor came in, did an exam and agreed that yes, it is scarlet fever. We left with a note for the school (because now we had shared his germs with everyone) and a perscritption for antibiotics. We were all on lock down (sort of) for 24 hours - or at least Benjamin was on lock down and the other two weren't supposed to be around other kids... and it was the WEEKEND! So we stayed in on Saturday and rested and just hung out. Roo was a bit stir crazy, but she survived. Ha ha. By the evening my little buddy was eating, talking, laughing, smiling and almost back to himself. My heart was so happy because after three weeks of being sick (he didn't have scarlet fever the whole time, just kept getting sick) Benjamin was finally feeling better!!! WHOOO HOOOOOO! Currently he is 100% awesome healthy and finishing up his 10 days of antibiotics.
Sunday we went to church and then came home to enjoy our weekly movie marathon. Sophie was snuggling with me on the couch, and Aaron came to sit down on the floor using the couch as a backrest. Then, before we knew it, Miss Sophie wiggled over to give Aaron a little love!
We shall call this video "Drill, Rinse and Spit" Ha ha If you haven't caught on yet, we're a little wacky and fun around here. In a practical way. Sort of. And here's Aaron popping out of the laundry basket.
That may seem random, but it's pretty normal around here. You never know what's going to happen!
I copied what this other person did (I don't have permission to share their picture so I'm not going to - but I found it on Pinterest and it looks a lot like this but better than mine.) Anyhow, Roo wanted it to be a jumpsuit so I made her a jumpsuit by sewing shorts onto the sweater part and then put a zipper across the back booty seam. Yup - we made lots of jokes about having a butt flap and easy access to go potty. Roo cut out the eyebrows and moustache and I sewed it all on and together. It got all put together a little late at night and I'm pretty sure I fell asleep a couple of times sewing the blue part onto the eye's but we got it done and now I'm off to pick her up from school and find out how much fun she had!
Yes, our week has been RANDOM and CRAZY and UNEXPECTED - but it was pretty fun and included way more random stuff than I wrote about here. AND don't worry! Because I PROMISE my next blog post will be a "how to" on how I put together one of my boys favorite things in their new bedroom!
