I decided we had to get out of the house today. The doctor decided he wanted to see G, so we ventured out. The boys were worried they were going to hurt G, so they had to go with. Yep... Hand Foot Mouth it is. The good news, now that the fever is gone, the doctor said he really is past the contagious part. So.. we will move forward with swimming plans tomorrow.
The boys have been working on their behavior this week, with the reward of getting to go get new legos today. Well, lets just say that they have had to work really hard to get this reward. Not fighting has not been part of our week.
We decided to grab a quick lunch and as we were driving, we started talking about AJ. My 13 year old said, "I just can't even remember what it is like to have him home.". My 9 year old said, " I forgot about him". Essentially saying the same thing. I was just thinking to myself the other day, I forgot how it feels to have my best friend at home. To cuddle, talk with, be intimate with, and to just have someone to take care of me. We can see the light... it is coming SLOWLY... but it is within reach.
