In the five minutes or so that I was able to see my children this morning, Emily ran up to me with Little Lion in one hand. She was pointing at his face and because of the normal noise level of our house, I was only able to make out a few words - specifically, Little Lion and throw up. "Oh, did Little Lion throw up? Is he feeling better?" Because sometimes buddies get sick.
"NO! Little Lion's face smells like throw up!"
"Well, okay. I'll talk to Grammy and she can put him in the wash today."
"Well. Um. I don't really know what to tell you then."
I'm working on a post regarding our weekend but, well, you know how those things go.
We still have three children who are not 100%. Allie is on our Concerned list right now because she continues to wheeze and have coughing fits in spite of the inhaler.
The most frequently asked question from new parents of multiples is when does it get easier? There are usually two responses: a specific age related to a specific difficulty (for example: "At 6 months, I was finally able to schedule feedings") or the anthem of parents everywhere ("It doesn't get easier. It just changes.") I tend to agree with both of these and fall in the middle. It is certainly easier now than it was four years ago but it is still very difficult.
We plan to return to Disney this year and I have started harassing Rich with dates, quotes, options, etc. The girls and I have been discussing outfits and costumes because you better believe that they are going to have custom everything for this trip. Rich tells me that I am obsessed. And, yes, I am. There have been a few very crummy incidents (unblogable) over the past few months and I need something to be excited about. Plus, I am going to need months and month and months of time in order to sew all of these clothes.
Because I am now a Disney travel expert, I may share some tips and planning advice here even though it may be like talking to myself.
Oh, and by the way, I am done with winter. DONE.
