Potato, Potahto

My happy baby Drew is still happy. He is doing well on the thrush medication, and does not seem to have any ill effects because of it. However, I am not doing as well. I have mastitis. If you don't know what mastitis is, good for you, you probably don't want to know. But let me tell you, it's miserable. I have a fever, so I am alternating between being drenched in sweat, and having chills. And I feel like I have been hit by a truck.

This morning, I had the kids in my room with me and I was just laying down and resting. Drew was still asleep in his swing, and the older kids were snuggled up with me, watching a show. Emma was being a little wild, tackling her brothers out of the blue. I explained to her that mommy was sick, and I needed her to calm down and not get the boys riled up. She wanted to play a game. "Mommy, can we play tag you're it in here?" "No, sweetie, that is not a calm game. I need you to either find something calm, or just watch the show, or go into your room or the living room." "Can we play hide and seek in here?" "No, sweetie, that would wake up Drew. Why don't you play with toys?" "OK, Mommy, I will find something to do." A few minutes later, Emma is under the bed saying, "Boys, you can't find me!" Really? This was her find-something-other-than-playing-hide-and-seek? "Emma, what are you doing?" "We are playing Find Emma!" I gave her the Look. "I asked you not to play hide and seek." "Mommy, this is not hide and seek, this is Find Emma. It's a different game."

So it's going to be that kind of day...
