Today was a nice day for Valentines. Unfortunately Ryan and Mommy were sick all day. And mommy was REALLY sick. In an effort to get better quickly, we all took it easy today. But there were a few highlights to this special day:
- a) Lucky showed up! That’s right – Ryan’s elf on the shelf showed up to surprise Ryan today. He left a note saying he heard Ryan was sick and just wanted to check up on him. Ryan absolutely lit up and loved seeing him. They were together all day, we did a scavenger hunt together, Ryan showed him how he does on the guitar, and more. Lucky was only able to stay for today and had to go back home, but it was really cool to see him.
- b) In the morning Ryan took it upon himself to make some valentine’s day gifts for us. He did some construction paper art and put a small gift in a lunch bag for both mommy and me. He had it all nicely displayed in the living room when we came down. And this just completely melted my heart. We have been trying so hard to get him to show his appreciation for people, and this surprise was perfect. No one asked him to do it. He just did it. Awesome!
Oh and Ania got me a bunch of sweatpants and sweatshirts, since she and ryan ripped my only big sweatshirt while playing together.
Otherwise it was another relaxing day. I was proud of him for generally staying still and listening to our advice for getting rid of his sickness. He is doing a bit better, so we’ll see what tomorrow brings. Unfortunately I feel my body trying to fight it now. I truly hope it doesn’t get the better of me since I want to keep helping my family best I can.
Happy vals day!
