today, i stayed home with tucker. last night he basically kept me up all night hacking coughing (the kind of cough where you cough until you gag and puke). yeah, it was fun. add his coughing to my insomnia and you have a lovely evening. i was just praying it didn't turn into anything worse (still praying).
so, this morning i'm on the phone with a co-worker figuring out some work things and i tell her, 'i don't know what's going on'. to which tucker (who is laying in bed next to me) pipes up and replies, 'i'll tell you what's going on. i'm sick!' ... i almost died.
a few minutes later, he realizes he is only in his pull-up (night diaper - whatever). he asks me where his clothes are. i tell him that i took them off last night when he puked on them. he replies, 'oh yeah'. i then ask him if i can get him some clothes to wear. he then answers, 'i don't think you can handle that'. ARE YOU KIDDING ME KID? where does he come up with this stuff?
other random things he has said today:
'you're nuts. like coconuts.'
'thank you for taking care of me mom.'
'dad, you're the best daddy in the whole wide world.'
'mom, the dinosaurs in the woods died two years ago.'
everything he drew or made today was 'BEEEU-TEEE-FUUUL'
... love how he says it.
and my personal favorite which he said about 5 times today:
'mom, you're the best mommy in the whole wide world.' :)
i'm hoping tonight goes better than last night. matt is home tomorrow so that's nice. it's friday - thank heavens! i'm ready for this week to be over. one week closer to feeling like myself again! i'm so excited for the weekend. tucker is so excited for halloween. i like that it is on a saturday this year - no rushing after work to get out and get trick-or-treating! we are going out on saturday too. the first night i've been out in MONTHS. i made my costume so that should be fun. i'm also hoping i feel like a normal person when we go out! i think some jerky from the muni will totally help that. :)
