Oh sickness! Oh pain! Oh misery! (Oh exaggeration and drama!)
Apparently having had brain surgery and previously dealing with lots of pain makes illness no better than before. It is still terrible to have a swollen throat and unhappy sinuses.
In other news, my daughter is a master track star already. She runs like a pro whenever she gets her hands on something she knows she shouldn’t have. Jon and I are often sent into fits of abrupt laughter when Eva takes off running for no known reason. ALERT! We now know that our kid has something she shouldn’t! She’s pretty cute when she runs because she has a big head and skinny, skinny and still somewhat wobbly and stiff legs. She goes down fast when we go after her. I’m pretty sure it’s the momentum of her head going around the corner faster than her body that takes her out. Jon and I use these moments of weakness to grab whatever she has in her gorilla-strength grip while she howls “mine!” over and over again. Despite the unhappy end in these moments, she also does the run-for-it game whenever I’m trying to get her coat and shoes on to go somewhere. Her girly giggles ring throughout our house. It is usually a good chase, and by the time I catch her I’m too tired to go on our daily walk around the neighborhood.
Due to extreme exhaustion from such antics as well as my potentially awful ailment, that is all for today.
