Sun, no fun, and cheese buns.

Hello and happy belated Easter!!

I didn't think I would find a moments to log on today, but am happy to quickly stop in and let you know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth or anything.

We have had a rough few days here at casa Baker! It all started on Friday when my Mom, Aunt and I hit up the massive Wild Rose antique fair. Midway into our excursion Sean calls us to let us know that Wren has been throwing up repeatedly in the few hours since we left. He seemed to have the situation under control, but we scurried home not long after.

When we arrived she was still sick and running a temperature, which steadily increased all night despite regular tylenol doses. By Saturday morning she was talking gibberish and was burning up so we took her to the Stollery Children's Hospital. Turns out she has a gastro-intestinal bug/virus. The poor little thing is still sick as can be. This has really been our first encounter as parents with the whole barf situation. Not fun!! It is just heartbreaking to watch her when she is feeling sick because she doesn't understand what is going on and is so helpless. THANKFULLY (knock on wood!) neither Sean nor I have caught it, but we are both pretty much walking zombies since we have been up nightly with her since Friday.

So yeah, that's where we've been at!

Besides running a sick house I did head outside briefly this week when I could because I am SOOO happy to report Spring has finally arrived. It really has me itching to get out in the yard!

Despite all the amazing finds at the antique sale last Friday, I only brought home 1 bag full. A couple of fun antique science beakers and a pile of neat old glass jars.

While it may have taken a while to arrive I am just happy that Spring kicked into high gear quickly. I brought in my first garden clippings of the year (crocus flowers), meagre as they are, to put the old bottles to use.

A big thank you to Mr. Sun for bringing me those, they were sorely needed this weekend to keep my head up!

And now I am off to enjoy a dinner consisting of 1 semi-toasted cheese bun. I've learned that with sick kids finding time to cook dinner is the first casualty...

Hope you have been having a MUCH better week!!

The stomach bug likes to visit our house every year. It's definitely not fun because we seem to ALL get it. Sick babies are no fun! Give Wren a ginger bath and rub peppermint oil on her belly. That seems to always help my kids. :)

oh sweet girl, that is HORRIBLE. I have one 14 mo old baby girl and we haven't done the throw up thing yet, and it scares me!!! we have however, been up all night with her bc of tornadoes lately and tonight we are under a warning again until 5am. Pray for us and we'll pray for you!! xoxo shelli

Oh your poor Wren! I hope she gets better soon, and you two stay healthy! Maybe the sunshine will make her get better faster, I hope so!

Aww I hate to hear that little Wren has been ill..that's no fun at all! Hope she's on the mend and back to herself soon! I love the little crown bottle, that is just adorable! Great find!

The first bout of illness is the worst. Lack of sleep + not knowing when it'll end + a little one who can't tell you how she's feeling is the absolute pits. Hope she's on the mend soon. The crocuses are so pretty in the little bottles. What a nice way to showcase them. Thanks for sharing.

I love your whole blog and am awarding you with the Kreativ Blogger Award. Swing on by to accept it. Hope this award lets a little more sun in.
