The Winter of Our Discontent...

I know, I know, I've been AWOL... I am so sorry!!!

I do have tutorials almost ready to share and two awesome pattern tests that I have gotten to do - one is girly one is boy-ie and you will LOVE them both!!!

SO why have I been missing?  Well, my children just can not seem to be healthy for more than a couple days.  It all started back when Hubs got the flu during PR&P and passed it along to the boys.  Then baby girl got a double ear infection - only to recover from that and knock out her front tooth.  Then all three kiddos and I got smacked with the stomach bug.  We got healthy and got it again, got healthy and got it again, and on and on - the boys were even sick on their birthday ;o(.  Until FINALLY this past weekend EVERYONE in the house was HEALTHY!!!  WOHOOOOOOOOOO!

But then.... well, baby girl has been a dare devil since day one (thus the knocked out tooth), and is now trying to climb stairs.  She made it up two stairs and fell while I was 'otherwise occupied'.  That small fall resulted in a buckle fracture of her left leg -WHAT!?!?!?!?!?
Today I was given the choice of a hip high cast (that would have meant NO pants, NO baths, NO crawling, etc.....) OR holding her as much as possible and preventing her from standing for 2-3weeks.  I went for the second option, but keeping that little girl from standing is so hard.  It isn't going to be the easiest road ahead, but I think I still made the better choice.

So I PROMISE that next week there are going to be tons of fun new posts.  I'll even share my PR&P pattern remix that is currently sitting on my cutting table -sigh.

Huge hugs, and I hope everyone can go into the weekend with big smiles and healthy families!!!


  1. Oh no! That's sounds horrible (all the sickness and the fracture)! I'm so sorry! Good luck with everything!

  2. OH MY!!! Poor little girl (and poor you...I know how tough it is to see your little one suffer). Wishing a speedy, full recovery for your precious, sweet girl, Suzanne!

  3. Yikes!!!That does not sound like fun at all. I surprised you've been able to get anything done at all. I know I would probably just want to curl up under my covers after all of that. Here's hugs and well wishes your way!

  4. Oh no! So sorry to hear! That sounds awful for everyone. Good luck

  5. That has been pretty bad around there. I hope she recovers soon from the fracture and also that all of you stay healthy from now on.

  6. Oh my goodness that does not sound fun at all!! Hope everything starts looking up!

  7. Suzanne, I am so sorry for all of these incidents. I remember a time when it seemed we were in the ER on a monthly basis with our three. It will pass... We are now several years and counting-broken bone-stitches-seizure-puking til you're dehydrated-free!
