I promised a refreshed day with a blog about our fabulous yesterday but my dirty bathrooms were calling my name! Lucky for me my Saunie was inspired to stop by and take Gavs from me. Nate needed to run some errands and I NEEDED to get some cleaning done. I was able to get both upstairs bathrooms cleaned, and both the kids rooms totally rearranged. Gavin shares a room with Spence and I felt it would probably be better to move him out of there for when Spence is immuno-compromised and I don't want Gavin to sleep alone. I decided, therefore, to take apart his crib and reassemble it in Belle's room but some rearranging was in order! Now I just need to re-cover Gavs bumpers because they definitely don't match in Belle's room (because I totally have time to do that!) I then moved things back to normal in Spencer's room. My muscles are aching from all of the furniture moving, but it sure feels great to have it all done. ANYWAY. Nate and I enjoyed an evening of "catching up on our Tivo" while Belle and Spence watched a movie upstairs. We watched the last two Chuck's and a Community. Gavin sat and giggled all evening with us and I surprisingly enjoyed myself as we laughed through our shows. For a moment, as we all sat there, laughing, I forgot myself. I forgot about our crazy life. I forgot about our "cancer". We were a normal family, if only for a moment, and I was breathing again. I soon remembered that I had not flushed Spencer's central line and trucked my sore muscles up the stairs to help my baby. This moment I had just experienced did not make me sad, or angry, I was thankful. Thankful that I was given this gift of breath, of laughing, of my family.
My giggling Gavs. He was so funny tonight. I also discovered that he broke another tooth through! Hurray! Two teeth!
My sleeping babies. They were watching a movie on our bed and I came up to them sound asleep!
