Sunshine in winter

So, it looks like O has beat this rotovirus and for those of you who have no idea what that is, think "roto-rooter" virus. In his 2+ years on the planet, O never had diaper rash or vomiting until this past week. It was the saddest thing in the world to watch him struggle and writhe in pain and have no ability to help him other than soothe him, carry him places and try to get him to eat.

He is better now and I was finally able to execute upon the stay at home plan today. We colored, made a play doh scene, colored some more. It was lovely. At breakfast, he even asked to go to! Of course I cannot take him until he is fully better, but I think my new plan may have merit.

The most hilarious (sorta) development is his learning to "milk it". Whenever he wanted something or someone to pay attention to him, he would say, "my tummy hurts" and when he got our attention, he was fine. Little scamp. Like mother, like son!
