Sick Kids and Braid Bonding


It's that season here. Rains and flu. Cameron went down with a cold, spread the bug around, and then got sick again - teething woes, but he was a sick little munchkin for several days, so much so that I took him back to the doctor just a week after his 11th month well-baby. I was pretty sure it wasn't anything serious, but I wanted my teeny fears of ear infection, dengue, etc. allayed.

So heartbreaking to see your kids having a bad time of it.


Marguerite got better pretty quickly and here we are playing around with our hair at bedtime. I braided our hair together, kind of like Siamese twins (joined at the hair and about 30 years apart)... I'd like to think that we're putting in some quality in these little snippets of true presence (as opposed to "Here, get busy with this so you'll be out of my hair while I work, but I'm right here, remember, just a couple of steps away." Hmph, I'm so tired of being a sourpuss. Time to get over that. Anyway, pics.

The braid bonding is really cute. Amazing how Midge can cross her eyes. Poor little Cam. He reminds me so much of Steve.

Hi, Sharkbytes. Midge is really good at that; I can't do it at all - I mean, intentionally. Aw, I'd love to see Steve's baby pics too. :)
