Cecelia had her tonsils out on Monday. So far it has been a little rocky, ok so it has been terrible. She can't talk very well, she won't eat, I have to force her to drink, she has a meltdown when she has to take her medicine, she refuses to nap, and she is really crabby! Yesterday I actually put her in the car and drove her around for over an hour just to get her to take a nap. Today I mixed her medicine with ice cream, just to get it in her! It is almost like having an infant again. It has been hard on her sisters too. Lydia is jealous and thinks we are having a party at home everyday. Sylvia just knows her schedule is different and Cecelia isn't playing with her as much. I think we are all ready for her to be well again!
So I kept a baby book for each child, have a scrapbook for each, a sisters one, and a family one, and have a yearly family bound photo book of all our pics, but I am terrible at getting stories down! I have a journal next to my bed. I kept up on it for maybe 4 or 5 days, now it collects dust. Maybe this will help me kick it in gear and actually remember some of the funny stories the kids have created as well as the everyday stories of our life!
