Sunshine Sunday - catching up and health

Last week was a little overwhelming for me.  I felt pretty swamped.  However, I love the feeling you get when things finally start to slow down a little more and you get to catch up.  I'm still working on the catch up part, but I love getting my house back in order and starting to check things off my list that have been waiting a while.

One of those things was giving my boys haircuts.  Even Superman gets haircuts, you know.


As much as I was loving Baden's hair long it was starting to bug him.  It was getting in his eyes.  So, I took off like two and a half inches.  Now he matches his brother.  He may have even lost a few pounds.  This kid has a ton of hair.


There's nothing that makes me more thankful for my health than getting sick.  I've been so lucky this winter, but something finally hit me yesterday. 

A whole different thing hit Rex as well.  This is going to be too much information, but I'm going to share it anyhow.  We went to the grocery store as a family yesterday.  Rex was whining about not feeling good, but we kind of thought he was being dramtic.  In the produce area my husband had pulled out a bag to put some veggies in and Rex said he had to throw up.  The timing couldn't have been better.  My husband held out the bag and Rex tossed his cookies right into it.  Is that great teamwork or what?  I know.  Gross, but good teamwork :)  We didn't even have to hear, "Clean up on aisle 12." 

What were you thankful for this week?

It's always a bummer when the little guys get sick. Worse when mama gets sick though. Hope you all get feeling better. Great teamwork by the way! Good catch!

What a great save by Dad!

Not to be gross, but I told my sister who just had a baby that you know you are a real mom when you catch that stuff in your hands! Yuck! I always have that experience of I can't believe I just did that!

Sorry to hear you are under the weather...but I also have this awful stomach bug. So today, I am very grateful for my wonderful hubby who has let me sleep most of the weekend to get better! He also let me sew yesterday without complaining as it was a good distraction from feeling bad. I have the best hubby ever. Best wishes to you too.

Only a parent can appreciate that! Way to go Super Parents!! Hope you all feel better soon!

aw, bummer. we've all got colds up in here, no throwing up though thankfully. I don't do well with throwing up. I like my kids to throw up when daddy is home to do the cleanup.
Great save! Nicely done. I had to laugh at the previous poster who mentioned trying to catch it in your hands. Olivia gagged the other day and I totally went to do that, and then looked at my SIL in horror and went, "I can't believe I just did that!" She laughed and said, "better that than having to clean it up off the floor!" Thankfully no throwing up actually occured.

I'm always (ok, usually) thankful for all my boys for making me laugh. But this week I'm thankful for my friends....two consecutive sundays, two home cooked sunday roasts!

What are the chances of Pa being there with a bag??! That never happens.
Hope you feel better soon

WOW! That is perfect timing!!! Nice teamwork indeed.

I am grateful for my faith. I am grateful for the Spirit that touches my soul and helps me to be a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend.... I am grateful for a loving Father in Heaven. He is always there for me!!!!!

Feel better! When I taught my friends and I noticed that we would all get sick on break. We figured that the stress of finals and grading hid it, and that the relaxed body let the germs finally do their deed.

Alysa said...

Wow! What great teamwork! I was thankful for a healthy family this week after a couple weeks of the kids being sick. Sick kids are no fun!

Kim said...

I'm sorry but that totally made me laugh. Great timing with the bag! I am sorry to hear that you were both sick though.

Jody said...

Ha ha!!! That was funny!!!

Belle said...

I wonder how Superman cuts his super hard hair? Your kids look adorable as usual. It's nice your husband had a bag all ready!
I'm thankful this week for the warm weather and sunshine!

Tiffany said...

I think the guys look so handsome after a haircut. Hope ur fam feels better soon.

holly said...

Great timing. Something happens between 3 and 13 when your kids puke goes from manageable to not so much. Had to manhandle a barf bag from my teenager....way gross! When I recovered I felt sappy that he had grown up so much. I know supa freaky, right?

Hands Sew Full said...

Oh that sucks being sick at the same time as the kids! Hope you both feel better! This week I am grateful I finally got to bring my hubby home from the hospital!

Siobhan said...

Talk about efficient sick management! I know I get only one chance and it goes, "Mummy, I feel...sick..." BANG! Timing is everything.

My superhero got the chop today. He has a ton of hair too (I think that's the source of their power).

So sorry to hear you are sick. Get better soon you guys x

TheBrokeMomDotCom said...

I hope you all get better soon, but that was the best throw up story!

Diana Smith said...

I"m sorry yall aren't feeling well, but that is a great family story! I also laughed when I saw the rocket tshirt. My son had that one and for some reason it seemed to fit him for over a year... Then we got another one from his cousin, the next size up. So my son has been photographed in that shirt for about 2 years. It looks like he hasn't grown, but he has! Love it! Hope yall feel better soon!

Cherie- His shirt is from Carter's but it's a few years old. It used to be Rex's.
