Here is a standard sequence of events in the Svendsen household lately:
- Per Christian goes to barnehagen.
- Per Christian plays and cuddles with lots of germ-y babies.
- Per Christian brings germs home to Mommy & Pappa.
- Per Christian gets sick.
- Mommy gets sick.
- Pappa gets sick.
So, yep, fun times.
Prosecco & Pampers has been a bit more quiet than usual while this cycle plays itself out. Luckily for us, by the time we reach number six, it’s a new week and Per Christian goes back to barnehagen, thereby beginning the cycle at number one all over again.
It seems like as good a time as any to get out of Dodge, so I’m splitting town this weekend for an all-girls Mommy-palooza gathering in Amsterdam. Just four old married ladies, sans hubbies and sans babies, spending a few precious days to ourselves away from home. It’ll be my first weekend away since Per Christian was born 13 months ago, so I’m thinking it’s long overdue.
I’ve got friends waiting and a sexy new dress packed in my luggage – and the fridge is stocked with beer and frozen pizza for Pappa.
Amsterdam, here I come!
Ugh. Sickness feels like it never ends when you have a little one. Feel better soon!
