We had a rough week. Two thirds of my children came down with Chicken Pox despite having the vaccine and we were stuck at home. No school, no gymnastics, no grocery store. When I was a kid, I don’t remember being stuck at home all of the time being a big deal. As an adult it’s a BIG DEAL. Plus, Mr. Hedin was out of town. Luckily, I have awesome friends who were willing to text-talk to avoid spreading the germs, a cousin who brought me dinner and wine, and parents who took turns watching the two infected children so I could be present for the third.
This weekend I plan to do nothing. I plan to wear the same pajamas for both days. I plan to watch movies. I plan to be comfortable. I plan to be a marginal parent as Mr. Hedin will be home to pick up the slack.
