Weekend Update - Family, Fun and Football

Last Thursday, I went to bowling.  At the same time, Husband had to deal with Little Miss who was having trouble going to the bathroom.  When she peed, she would cry and cry.  It was so traumatic that she ended up falling asleep on the living room floor.  So, I anticipated the worst on Friday morning which is exactly what we got.

On Friday, she woke up and screamed like we were skinning her alive when she went to the bathroom.  I stayed home with her and let her basically watch tv all morning while I worked.  She was quiet and only really was an issue when it was time to go.  She had a mid-afternoon doctor appointment for which Husband came home.  She actually was very good at the doctor's and, after what seemed like forever, even gave a sample.  She was prescribed an antibiotic and we were on our way.  The first dose of the antibiotic went very poorly (though I'm pleased to say that she improved each dosage after to the point where this morning, she came running and took it with no issue at all).  Friday night, we went to Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law's apartment where we met up with In-Laws.  Little Miss played with Nephew.  It was a nice, quiet evening.  It's always fun to see the nephew, too.  If you click the Tumblr link (in a previous post or in the upper right corner), you can see a video of Nephew thoroughly amused by Little Miss.

On Saturday, we all woke up early.  Little Miss wanted to cuddle with Husband on the couch, but she wanted me to hold her while she tried to go to the bathroom.  It was still quite painful through Saturday (though got increasingly better Saturday and back to normal on Sunday).  Husband took her for a surprise in the morning and brought her to the playground.  After, I gave her lunch and drove to my Parents' house where we met Nephew and a friend of the family.  Little Miss played with Nephew.  During playing, she did trip down a stair and her tooth went through her lip which resulted in a fat lip.  After a few minutes of cuddling, she was off and running again and hasn't complained once about it.  She took a nap on the way home and then ate dinner and pretty much went back to sleep.

On Sunday, she got up with Husband while I stayed in bed a little longer.  I developed a bit of a cold and was a little worn down.  She was all excited because Husband's friends were coming over to watch football.  She was ready to impress them all, and she did have fun playing and talking to them all.  That's the price you pay for watching football at our place.  We both took a nap in the afternoon (mine being much longer) and then she did bath, dinner, bedtime after which I watched the Emmys. 

Little Miss is fully healed this morning and ready to start the week.  She was so excited to get back to school and all her friends.  Husband and I are bit sluggish however.
