Today Joey took off work because we figured we would take the day to celebrate "no more school!" We had planned to go do something fun together as a family. Well, that didn't really happen....poor little Ella woke up this morning around 5 am burning hot, heart pounding, and coughing. She had almost a 103 fever and has been miserable all day. Joey still stayed home and helped me with the kids(he's so sweet!). Its always hard when the kids are sick. We still made the day fun and celebrated(well, Joey and I). In the morning, Joey went and played some golf which was a treat for him. He hasn't done that in awhile. Then in the afternoon, I was able to go to the salon for some pampering. So, we didn't exactly celebrate as a family, we just took turns having our own separate fun time. When Ella is better, we'll take them somewhere fun too. We really aren't horrible parents! :) Poor Ella isn't feeling too good still. She actually said earlier today, "My brain hurts Mommy." Interpretation: headache. Its so hard to see your little ones feeling so sick. Our poor little Ella Bean. This is our fun little nickname for her. Here is the thought process: Ella, elly, jelly, jelly bean= Ella Bean. She smiles every time we call her that. Hopefully she gets better soon, so we can see her little smile again.
