Matt's off this week. This vacation is very timely, because he started to turn a bit grey around the edges-- like a wilted plant that needs to see the sun. Hopefully he can relax, get some sun and have a bit of fun.
The fun's going to have wait though- both girls have croup. I'm on my 4th night of croup duty--- laying next to my little ones, making sure they can breathe, and holding their little bodies over the humidifier when they can't. It's grueling work--- but something about Lucy's sweet breath at 4am, as she gurgles "thank you mommy" and pats my back as I rock her next to the Vics Cold Mist machine makes me realize these are moments I will never forget.
