We finally got our internet hooked up this week after three weeks in the new place and I had grand bloggy plans, but so far they have been thwarted by the dreaded hand, foot and mouth disease. This week Ezra has become a tiny whirlwind of contagion. The poor kid has barely been eating anything, he's been having horrible nights sleeps and has a mouth full of painful blisters. That means the rest of the house has been in upheaval and sleeplessness too. Every day has been a challenge to keep him and all the infected drool flowing from his swollen mouth away from little Willow. My hope is the goodness of breast milk will protect her from contracting it. So far she is showing no signs, but I'm not counting my chickens yet. So we've been locked in and feeling a little cabin feverish, but at least it looks like he's on the tail end of it now! Tomorrow is another and hopefully better week!
On a nicer note, we did end up going to the Zoo last weekend for Ezra's 2nd birthday, and he LOVED it. I no longer had any birthday party guilt. We spent the whole day there, he was so exhausted after running non stop for about 5 hours. It's so amazing watching kids faces when they see the animals for the first time, such wonder and amazement. Willow enjoyed it so much she pooped right through her nappy, clothes and blanket and now I can claim I've changed a nappy one metre from a bear!
I've heard hand, foot and mouth is going around, has it infected your house this season?
