Days of Joy: day seven, getting better and one long nap!

Yesterday, many of the little people in the household began to look a little more perky. Some of them even got dressed, others promised to do so tomorrow. The littlest one gave me a fright however, he went down for a nap at 1:30 or so. He awoke around 3, and fell immediately back to sleep in my arms. I finally settled his heavy self on the sofa in the middle of everyone at 4 and he stirred not a muscle until 6:45. Upon waking, however, he was jubilant and noisy and full of ideas to keep us on our toes until way past my bedtime!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for trick-or-treating tonight. We do have a plan B the kids came up with: take all the candy Mama has not yet eaten and play trick-or-treat in each room in the house, "helping ourselves," as one put it, hurrah for ingenious ideas!


  1. Yes, that's a wonderful idea for trick or treating in your own home!

    I'm glad your little one got such a good rest (probably needed it after a long bout of sickness) but I'm sure it did frighten you! I'm also happy to hear your whole family is on the mend.

  2. Thank you, Tammy!

    I hope you avoid the whole thing!

    Happy Halloween!
