The Day it all Went Downhill

The Day it all Went DownhillThursday was quite a beautiful day. Clear skies. Sun, warm to the skin. Which is not a recurrent event here in WA, specially this early into Spring. So you might have guessed by now that we spent most of the day outside, taking in some vitamin D. The day seemed to be going well, but little did I know that would be the very same day it all went downhill.

The Day it all Went Downhill After we had lunch we decided to go for a walk to the field right behind our neighborhood. We love going there because nobody ever goes there (except older people who go to the Community Garden). A. wanted to go practice his golfing so we took the clubs, some newly renovated golf balls. J. wasn’t too excited but he still brought his club with him.

Once at the field A. found the perfect spot, still wet from the rain, but he teed like nobody’s business. He teed one ball, then the next and the next.

The Day it all Went Downhill He has such a good arm! He can hit the ball, which I seriously can’t, and he has such power behind the strike. This little man, almost 5, is so into Golfing that dad found him some classes. I haven’t seen him so excited!

He hit a few balls and then invited his brother to hit some himself. But J. was just not feeling. He was cranky and upset, but he just couldn’t put a finger on what it was that was bugging him so.

We soon decided to head back home, snuggle on the couch, watch a movie and enjoy some popcorn. When dinner came about that is when it all went downhill.

J. said, and I quote, “I don’t want to eat. I am not feeling well“. That night little men woke up around 11:30 with a fever, feeling beaten.

That Friday was spent on the couch with a little boy who slept half the day, barely ate, and drank even less. And just a few hours to our departure to Seattle.

This past weekend was not what we had bargained for. We were, and still are, sick. But very happy to have seen Grandma.


What do you do to make yourself feel better when sick?

    well sometimes the sick child is best when he is willing to cuddle with you! I love when my son cuddles, but only time he does if he is sick

    It is never fun to be sick. Being sick on the weekend is the worst.

    That is awesome that he is so good at Golf. The next Tiger Woods :)

    I hope you all feel better soon. It is not fun to be sick. Plus, warmer weather is coming for us in the PNW. You need to get better! Water, rest, no sugar, and healthy food is the right Rx!

    I’m sorry you are all sick, My littlest just got better after being sick for 3 weeks straight. I hope everyone is feeling better soon!

    It definitely is not a good thing to feel sick–what I usually do is huddle into bed with a book or two. It is ten times worse when a child is sick–I hope he got over whatever it is he had and is back to himself!!

    Oh no it seems like that is always the way too. One of my three always end up sick on vacation or a holiday. Hope you guys are feeling better.

    So unfair that we always seem to be sick on the weekend! We usually cuddle, watch movies, and eats lots of soup and jello.

    Sorry to hear that all of you are sick. That’s no fun but having great weather and seeing Grandma always helps. Looking forward to hearing how this week was better.
