Cousin Camp sick boy

First thing in the morning grandgirlie arrived for the day. . .soon after the lil' farm hand pulled up with his mommy. . . .bathed in his morning breakfast. . . .repeated. . .if you get my meaning.

His mommy began the task of cleaning up the car seat. . .while I began laundry .. .while keeping the cousins from greeting each other with kisses. Not knowing whether the tummy upset was from tummy troubles that are going around. . .I thought it best to call up grandgirlie's Nana. . .for a rescue. Nana came and rescued grandgirlie from possible tummy trouble and the lil' farm hand bathed and fresh. . .felt just fine. . .

In the afternoon. .. Grandpa went out to the rapidly melting glacier in the back yard. . .and dug out a cave .. . still the tummy held its Cheerios. . . and Pedialite .. .

As I sit and write this during nap time. . . I smile at the resilience of children. . .
Had that been me. . .bathed in my breakfast .. . I'd still be calling in sick ..
Today, I aim to finish the first apron that I started on Monday . . .
All for now. . .with love,

  1. I'm so glad he seemed to bounce right back from the tummy ailment. Don't you love Pedialyte?

    I remember when I was much younger, we had enough snow and cold weather to attempt to build an igloo. We had some nice walls, but none of us had the "engineering skills" required to put on the roof. I think this snow cave would have been much simpler!

  3. Ohh..I'm soo glad you didn't have to deal with more than one repeated breakfast! My younger granddaughter is quite emphatic that she will never have childen because they might in her words..."you know... do THAT!"
    I love the contrast pics ... one in a snow cave, the other in a bare field.

    Have a wonderful day!

  6. Wow..I am glad 'lil farm hand' bounced back to good health quickly! Loved seeing the good time he was having with g'pa.
    And you Lovella captured some wonderful memories..
    I'm off to do some more painting, a job I find 'not fun'..

  7. Your little guy made a most hasty recovery when he saw what fun awaited outside. Can't blame him!
    January tends to be 'sick month'...and I have three grands that must stay away from their cousins right now.

  8. It really is the season, isn't it? We're skirting the bugs over here - no one is feeling 100% but no one is sick either, so we'll focus on the bright side!

  10. Yay that he rebounded so quickly...some little ones just "lose it" easily. I think my niece "lost it" every day for a year and nothing wrong was ever found. Good, quick thinking for the grand-girlie, too!

  11. The adventures of cousin camp! Too bad grandgirlie had to miss out on the cave. I love how little ones learn to go on their haunches to have a look at something.

  12. Oh that nasty bug. We've all been affected here in the last few weeks, including the little ones - hardest to see them sick. Glad the little farm hand got over it quickly. I'm sure playing with grandpa helped a lot :)

  13. It is amazing how fast the little ones rebound. I always say please oh please don't send them to school if they've seen their breakfast or have a cold. I've catch it!

  15. Oh, my heart fears when I see that tunnel. Pray that Grandpa stays there and no one gets suffocated underneath. Oh, I know I worry too much.
    Hope all the little ones get better.
    What a wonderful day for a date.

  16. Will you post photos of the apron? I finished my little purse 2 days ago! Really too small for me, but just wanted to try it for the experience!
