Sick Day plus Big Plan

Two hours at a walk-in clinic yesterday to find out that preshus baby has not one, but two infected ears and tonsillitis to boot.


The doctor tsk-tsked when we asked if she could go back to daycare. No, of COURSE not! (irresponsible parents who didn't realize she has been suffering since, oh, Friday) She needs to recover for at least two days. Which brings me to this:


A sick day at home with Maman. Who is currently healthy although desperate for more sleep. Which is like a sickness actually. Or torture. Depending on how many nights of dreamus-interruptus we're talking about...


Two guesses what she's doing here...

And here...

And here...

Are you really surprised? We have been lucky lately as Bee Movie has been added to the rotation - it's one of her new faves.

She is already doing much better thanks to antibiotics and copious amounts of cuddling and coddling by above mentioned ill-equipped slaves to guilt um, parents. If I squint a little I can see the light at the end of the germ tunnel.

In other news, our plane tickets to B.C. are booked! We are spending Christmas with the Piercy/Thomassen/Hicks clan and frankly, I can't wait. Between seeing Liliane hang with her six cousins and seeing my grandparents and eating my Mom's baking and watching holiday movies with my Dad and going to White Spot, it's going to be great.

Stéphane is already planning our H1N1 avoidance strategy. I think there are masks involved. If you live in B.C. and are planning to visit with us, you may have to pass some kind of screening process/portable airlock. I will keep you posted.

Speaking of visiting, I have an idea that might be a little cuckoo, but I thought I would give it a shot. My Mom has graciously offered to host a little 5 à 7 (that's Montréal for happy hour, but in our case we'll minus the alcohol. Liliane is a TERRIBLE drunk) so that we blog readers/commenters/friends/admirers can get together and actually talk to each other IN PERSON. With kids and everything! What do you think? Now, I realize that you really don't need yet another event at Christmastime, but it would be really quick and simple. We fly in on the 22nd so I'm talking December 23rd.

POST EDIT: Perhaps after Christmas would be better? Like the 27th or the 28th? Let me know!

Anyway, just a thought rolling around in my head. If you will be around, let me know and we'll make a plan! Ooh, as a bonus, those of you who read A Home Slice will be happy to know that Matthew and Bari and Asher will also be in town. What could be better than eating Christmas cookies and hanging out with this little cutie?

If I don't have ANY COMMENTS WHATSOEVER I will assume that you don't want to have anything to do with me (and my cockamamie plan) in real life and will procede to eating the rest of the Halloween candy to drown my sorrows. I'm just saying.

What? No alcohol?? Well, okay, I guess if it's too hard for Lilianne... Looking forward to hopefully seeing you when you're here! With the germ-fest that's happening around here, are you going to be able to get in the all-important trip to Beauty Nail? You can tell Stephane that sometimes they wear masks there...
:o)

Sounds like fun! We'd love to be in on it, granted there are no mandatory family functions going on for us.
I think that we should consider alcohol in case the party gets dull... might be entertaining to see a bunch of babies have a drnken brawl... KIDDING!

Theresa said...

You two are hilarious. Note that I just edited the post to say maybe after Christmas would be a better get-together moment?

Oy 2 hours with a sick bebe? Poor gal. Looks like she is feeling better already though, so hopefully sleep is in your future.

If by H1N1 strategy you mean avoidance of possible carriers all I have to say is I will really miss those adorable Hicks children, because no matter how many precautions I take I have never ever EVER seen them without getting terribly sick during the visit (anyone recall california vacation where I ended up with 4 prescriptions and 5 days in bed? fun times) It is pretty much the only time I ever get sick, I think my body can't handle the West Coast germs or something. Maybe we can video chat from another room while they open presents :)

We are currently scheduled to leave the 27th but may be changing our tickets (to come later and leave later) due to MP's work schedule. We should know in a few days.

What a wonderful idea!! We aren't going to BC this Christmas *sob* so unfortunately I can't join you.

Shawna said...

Pooh about the sickies in your house - yay about the get together, hello, did you say PARTAY!!?!? I'm in, but can't promise I'd bring the spawn ;)

Aw that's so great that you get to see all of your family for Christmas! But not, apparently, your SISTER JAIME!

Give Liliane a huge hug from me, I completely understand, all to well, the pain of a double ear infection.
