Best Buds

Remida Day

Here are KK, Matthew, and Leila having fun at ECDC's annual play day - an evening of fun as well as the welcome night for incoming students (Matthew). This year's theme was recycling and the kids are featured here adding to a modern art sculpture made entirely of recycled materials.

Welcome to the world, William Scott

Born today at 7:24 AM to happy parents Scott and Ashleigh. The strapping young lad weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 20.5 inches long. All are doing well! Welcome, William!
Here is KK enjoying a smoothie on an after school outing with her father! Good times.

Grandma and Grandpa come to visit

My parents came for a quick visit this week and we got to spend a little time visiting with them. We had a lovely dinner on Thursday evening with them and their good friends the Beis's. And on Friday Matt and I got to spend a little time with them downtown (my Dad featured here buying a new hat!!).

Sick Day - Part III

Well, it ended up being the "week of Matt" as his virus lasted the whole week! His symptoms finally went away on Thursday and we stayed home Friday to make sure that we were truly out of the woods. Matt is featured here as his happy healthy self, enjoying the swings on Saturday morning at the park.

Sick Day - Part II

A visit to the pediatrician yesterday confirmed a gastro-intestinal virus. Hydration and probiotics are the key.

So, we are home sick again today continuing to recuperate. No fever this morning but he did throw up first thing (he was hungry and I think we did too much too soon). And another bout of the "runs" this morning but that is to be expected as his system gets back to status quo. As you can see here, he had a small but good lunch and so far it is still in there! We are planning an afternoon trip to the library to get news bedtime books!

Home with Sick Kids

So, when Matt woke up in a pool of his own diarrhea, I thought it might put a damper on my day. After we bathed him, changed the sheets, changed the changing table, opened the window and got the washer going; I thought maybe there was still hope for a day of quality time with my children. I mean, a gal can hope right? But, when he projectile vomited the drinkable yogurt I gave him for breakfast, I gave up and decided this was maybe just going to be a gross day. After cleaning the vomit out of my hair and starting my 5th load of laundry, I'm working on surviving it. This will be times I will look back on fondly, right?

Note to self (and other parents of sick children): Here is the big sign to look for pre-puke. If I can remember this, I may actually save some myself from another vomit-drenching. If you are aware your young child is sick and they go from playing happily or sitting quietly to restless roaming and whining, don your rain coat and go somewhere that can easily be mopped up!

Here's hoping it passes quickly and doesn't spread around the Roof household!

My beauty

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to Everyone!

One boy's version of heaven

This boy couldn't be happier than right here - eating jelly beans, holding a truck in one hand and a car in the other. Ah, simple pleasures!
