Chrissy bought this for me. It is living about my desk where I can see it from my bed. It seems like I see it a lot. At first it kindof scared me seeing "thrive" so often. Now I wake up in the morning and think, OK what am I going to do today to make sure that I am thriving.
I was sick this weekend. The stomach brand of sickness. I am a complete wimp when it comes to nausea and one of my worst fears of Mommyhood was being sick and having to take care of children. This is the first time I have been sick as a Mommy and it was as miserable as I expected. However, it could have been far worse. Aliza let me keep her Apple pony with me until I felt better (her most cherished toy). She also came to check on me every minute and half that I was resting. The worst day was Sunday so I did have a chance to lay down. Bless her heart. I shipped her and Josiah out to Aunt Janell on Monday so I could just have some space and Aliza was heartbroken to have to leave me. But she had a most wonderful time with Aunt Janell, as always.
We were back to thriving today. At one moment I realized every one was occupied so I grabbed the camera and just simply captured each person's activity.
