We're all struggling a bit with sinus post nasal infections.
On Thursday morning when I dropped Mia off at school, I told her teacher that we're all a little bit congested, but Mia doesn't have any other symptoms, but if she thinks she's sick she must just phone me to fetch her. Less than two hours later, Mia's teacher phoned and said she's really not herself, not participating, tearful, looks like she doesn't feel nice. I went to fetch her - and the teacher said as soon as Mia heard I was coming to get her, she was happy, playing, perfectly okay. I think Mia heard, and understood, when I told her teacher to phone me to fetch her, and decided to make use of the opportunity!!
Nonetheless, I kept her home on Friday too, and giving her medicine to help clear her up again. I'm also struggling with the silly post nasal drip, my voice is all croaky, and I've been coughing too. Really don't want to go to the doctor, so hopefully the Sinupret, LocaBiotal and Otrivin nose spray meds fix me up.
Luckily Ella's not as snotty as she had been a while ago. Sterimar nose spray, NoseFrida sucker, and few drops of breastmilk in her nostrils seems to have helped.
We set up the playmat for Ella - it was super cute, she loved it!
Ella is really starting to become more interested in her surroundings. This is how she was staring at her big sister who was telling her a story:
On Saturday morning we took Ella to my sister's house, where my mom and sis would look after her while Mia and I spent the day in Joburg with friends. First we went for a fun breakfast with Rox and Layla, the girlies had a blast, was so cute to see how they interacted and entertained each other, and Rox and I enjoyed catching up on each other's news a bit.
After that we went to Imke's 5th birthday party - can't believe this little friend is 5 already, how time flies! The party was a carnival theme, and it was just magical for all the kids. There was a magician show too, and Mia loved it, laughed and laughed, and has been telling everyone about it - "the man had a lion, and he told the lion, let's meet the children, and the lion said, no, let's eat the children!"
It was fun to see lots of friends, and enjoyed carnival foods - hamburgers, popcorn, toffee apples and candy floss!
Sunday was such a nice lazy day, all of us in our bed in the morning, bliss.
Got a busy week this week - time for Ella's 6-week paed appointment, my 6-week check-up, and Ella's vaccinations, poor body.
Seriously can't believe it's June already, this year is going way too fast.
