Otto:  This week you have been so sick, scarlet fever has not been kind.  We have had a slow finish to the week as your medication starts to work and to ensure you got enough rest.  It has been hard to see you feel so awful, but each day you got a bit better and I always enjoy the extra cuddles.

Hugo:  You have so far managed to escape the fever, fingers crossed it stays that way.  This was one of your first painting experiences, you loved the feel of it pushing through your fingers.

I would normally say how hard it was so have such a sick child at home while Han is away working, but for some reason my attitude was different this time, it certainly wasn't easy at times, but mostly it ok, even good!  It felt nice to be at home, we set ourselves goals each day and I just didn't stress about making sure everything was done on time.  A new week stretches before us, and with Han home in just over 24 hours it should be a very good one.

As always, linking up with Jodi


  1. Oh no ... poor Otto ... hope he's feeling better now.
    Love these pictures of two busy little boys.

  2. Wah!!! Scarlett Fever! That's rotten. Nice to hear that you're handling it with aplomb though. I always find that if I'm in the right frame of mind sickies are tolerable, even sort of sweet (extra cuddles and couch time, no guilt re. tv marathons). But when you're stressed, it sucks more than usual, right??
    Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

  3. Get well soon Otto. Love the rock painting! However this is an activity I would get them to do in their undies (or maybe even nude.) xx
