OUR DAY IN PHOTOS








I was inspired by my friend Kathleen to try and capture our day in photos. Of course the day that I chose to document wasn't the best, but it's real and it's ours and I'm grateful for each one. I ended up calling the nurse first thing and had to bring Bee down in the rain and fog after dropping Til off at school. We waited for an hour and a half. I had to give her a breathing treatment because she has Bronchilitus (?). It was sad. She screamed so hard. I hated every second. Then they told me it didn't help and there was really nothing that they could do. Expect a few hard days they said.

I was late coming to pick Matilda up (only 5 minutes) but everyone had cleared and Matilda said, "I was looking for you both ways." "I love you so much." I could have cried right then and there. The phone was ringing... "Where do you want the sink holes?" Overload. Short circuit.

We came home and had lunch. Made a few business calls. I had an egg with salad. Matilda had cheese and fruit and a granola bar. I let her pick lunch today. Then I put both girls down for bed. I made some coffee. I thought about addressing our beautiful birth announcements that just arrived. I didn't. I worked through their nap. Said hello to my sister.

Then they both woke up. Matilda is obsessed with wearing footie pajamas. I think it's because she sees them on Phoebe. She doesn't like the penguins as much as the frog ones. She also doesn't like to wear her panties with them because it gives her a "wedgie." She always has these princesses in her hands. She sleeps with them. I made Til dinner and we played with her sticker book. Sam swooped in and put Matilda down for bed and made dinner while I took care of Bee. We ate tacos with my Dad and he bopped Phoebe to sleep. It's the first time she's gone to bed without me being with her. Gave me a chance to reflect, to write this.

  1. Bronchiolitis is no fun - my 10mo old had it in January as a result of RSV. It sucks for a few days, but it gets better - I promise!

    It took a couple nebulizer treatments to really make a difference for my son...they just gave her one and gave up? Hmm.

    I hope Phoebe feels better soon!

  4. Lesley - I found your blog via your healthy pregnancy series on Pinterest, and keep coming back because of the honesty and realness that comes through in every post. You inspire me as I prepare for my first daughter (due in 10 weeks). You're a great mama- and you're touching others lives, too, with your words and photos. Love from a fellow GA girl :)

  6. Awww, I like this daily reflection--keep them coming! I cannot get over the sweet face of baby Phoebs. And how sweet that Matilda said she was looking for you both ways! If it makes you feel better, I know moms beat themselves up about being ANY late for school pick up, but ultimately I think it's a pretty okay lesson: your parent may be late but you will be fine and you will be safe and your parent will come! :)

    Call me when you can for a catch up--I'm working from home all day today. Love you!

  7. Love all of the pictures!

    My son is about a month older than Phoebe and we went through the bronchioloitis thing a few weeks ago. It does get better! We noticed he had less trouble breathing when he was sitting up, so we stuck a rolled up towel under one end of his crib mattress so he would be at an angle. He still woke himself up coughing, but it wasn't quite as bad. Good luck, and I hope she's feeling better soon!
