We celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday as one big SICK family! We are all sick with bad colds. Luckily, Joe and I celebrated Valentine's Day this past weekend with a "date day" away to Bismarck. We went to a movie and out to eat at the Bistro where we both enjoyed a great steak dinner. We celebrated early as we had a free babysitter this past Saturday otherwise known as Grandma!
The kids woke up to find presents on Valentine's Day but were not as excited as usual since they have been sick the past few days.
I found Joe and the kids on the couch when I woke up... they were not sleeping well so they ended up on the couch and Dad turned on movies for them. You can see that Tommy has a pacifier.... we had mailed all of his pacifiers away to his cousin Peter a month ago but we "found" one last night for Tommy to use while he is sick.
Joe took Tommy down to a lung specialist yesterday afternoon. Whenever Tommy gets sick he gets a croup cough so the doctor in Garrison wanted him to get checked out and see what is going on... he cannot get tested for asthma until he is 5. However, we did find out that his oxygen level was low so he will have to take nebulizer treatments 3-4 times a day every time he is sick. He did such a good job taking his treatment last night!
Joe brought home a dozen roses for me from Bismarck, chinese take out for dinner, and a foot bath that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. I gave him some new snow pants, work pants and a canvas picture of the two of us. We also had cards that we had planned on exchanging after the kids went to bed but it was late by the time they were sleeping so we will open up our cards today. I am excited to open the card when Joe gets home from work as Joe says there is another surprise present in the card!
It may not have been a romantic Valentine's Day but we spent it together as a family and hopefully, we will start feeling better soon!
