Survival of the Sickest

 

Saint Paddy’s day has not historically been the luckiest for us…

Take two years ago… I attempted to catch a picture of our little bugger in his green shirt:

“Not lucky, just cute”

And it was a pretty darn good thing he was cute, considering this:

Even luckier with those looks considering the collateral damage:

Of course the next year had to contain some kind of commiserate destruction… with another verboten object:  baby shower gift vs. scissors:

And this year?  Well let’s just say there’s some GREEN going around and unfortunately it involves tissues and coughing and sneezing and fevers and assorted body aches.

We’ve left the house once in five days… to refill on cold medicine Sad smile

Excuse me while I go lock up that photo shoot before the 4-year-old finishes his 127th viewing of Madagascar and destroys something with Pediacare.

I LIKE TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT.

You?

I hope you all get to feeling better soon. It has been yucky to be sure. So far we have been lucky with destruction with Blaze but I am sure that trend won't always continue lol.

Feel better soon! And I love his tattoos :)My little one had a similar incident not too long ago thanks to my dad who thought it was cool to give her markers and then just leave the room. Now he KNOWS both are no-no's

I hope everyone is feeling better soon. My son got a hold of a sharpie the other day and ruined a brand new (I am talking less than a week old) polo shirt and he still has some marker on his stomach.

I'm sorry y'all are still down and out. When I saw the thumbnail of Itty Bit it looked like he had tattoo sleeves. Hahaha. He sure knows how to do something all the way. No stopping early for him. :)

I hope you are back to normal soon!
