For Real

Ok, so the majority of this week sucked. No if, ands or buts about it. It was pretty darn awful. Early Easter morning the Badger woke up sick and throwing up. He was so out of it he didn't know which Easter basket was his and just started pulling things out. He then fell asleep. Easter is when we usually do our family picture, all dressed up and so cutesy, didn't happen this year. Re-do. We found out he had scarlet fever which then began to make its way though our family, I got it, the Owl got it. Today we are on the mend, most are back to normal.

Glad to be ending this week on a happier and healthier note. Hope all is well in your woods. Have a terrific weekend!  Joining Monica at Ink & Chai


  1. Oh, no! I came down with Scarlet Fever several years ago and even my mild case was quite miserable. I can only imagine going through it as a family. So glad you're on the mend!

    Your tomato plants look lovely - so much promise in them! I hope this week is restorative for all of you <3

  2. you poor guys! bad bad having little ones sick. no good being sick yourself when you have little ones! argh. glad to hear that you're all on the mend and that hubs was able to be home couple of days. what an ordeal!

    yay instagram. lol

    hope this weekend brings something fun for all of you.

  3. I am so sorry the illness hit during a holiday, that is definitely no fun at all. I hope you can still get a family photo one day. I also hope everyone is feeling better. (I love instagram too)

  4. Dang! That sure is a yucky way to spend the week. :(

    Hope you're all feeling better to enjoy the weekend!


  5. My three kids had strep and scarlet fever over the holiday weekend, I feel your pain. I am glad everyone is on the mend now!
    I hope next week gets better!

  6. Wow - I did not know Scarlet fever was even around sorry to hear of your crappy week and hope everyone is back to their healthy selves soon! Blood tests - awwww, poor little guy - I can barely get through them without passing out!
    New tomato plants are wonderful!!!

  7. poor baby! poor mama!
    I also did not know scarlet fever existed anymore.
    you deserve the best of weeks this week!

  8. I just popped over to check in and can't believe I didn't see this post before!?!?! Oh my word! Scarlet Fever?? Momma, you deserve an award for the crummy week you had! Wow! Glad you all are on the mend. This is when blogland is hard, because in real life I would be offering to drop off meals or hold a sick child for you!

  9. nothing is easy when a child is sick! so glad your family is on the mend. makes me wonder if scarlet fever is going around...was just mentioned by another mom or two on a forum i'm on...scary!

    1. I know! I couldn't believe other people had it too around the same time. Apparently it is a form of the strep virus and if caught early is no biggie. But it was definitely scary and strange as I was not familiar at all with the sickness or it's symptoms.


Thank you so much for bringing your energy! It fills me up to see your comments xoxo
