I sit hear feeling a little bummed out as I write this. Many of you are probably already aware that Landon & I missed out on a great opportunity to meet 2 of our fellow blogging friends......IN PERSON!!! That's right folks, we had plans to meet up with Em from Daily Smiles and Anna from Banana Pants yesterday.....AND Landon & I both got sick!!! Could our timing be any worse????
I have always been so envious reading blogs about families who made that crossover from blogland to reality. I have enjoyed reading posts and seeing pics of little ones meeting face to face and watching so many wonderful friendships bloom. AND, Saturday was our turn, and I was so excited about that opportunity. I even planned on canceling Landon's 2 therapy sessions for the day, just to meet our blogging friends.
And then it happened, Wednesday, July 21st, 2010, Landon got sick.............that date will be a constant reminder of what we missed out on for years to come!! Landon was running a high fever, had fluid in his ears and a rash. We were given some amoxicillin to take care of his ears and had been pumping him with Tylenol to help keep the fever down. I was on a mission to make sure that we made it to our playdate. AND THEN, once we got the fever lowered, we noticed that Landon now had spots of his feet, hands and mouth. And to top it off, I woke up vomiting on Friday morning!!! SERIOUSLY??!! Isn't there a written rule that mommy's don't have time to get sick??!! Apparently it got temporarily erased over the past few days!!!
I ventured over to Stephanie's blog this morning as I was sure she would have posted about THE PLAYDATE!! And what a wonderful post it was. They had such a wonderful day, and we are so happy for them. Landon would have been in his absolute glories being surrounded by 2 BEAUTIFUL little chicky-mamas:) He is definitely a ladies man!!!
Well, the most important thing is that Landon is feeling better. This timing works as we will be celebrating Elijah's 5th birthday tomorrow!!! Last year, Landon had double pink-eye!! FUN.....not.so.much. And we do have one more opportunity to meet a fellow blogging friend. Sunday, August 8th, we will be meeting up with Kelli & Colin from Love for Colin!!! They will be in our neck of the woods as they do some vacation traveling, and we will be meeting up for lunch!! We are very excited about this get together and I am asking that everyone keep their fingers & toes crossed that Landon will stay fever free!!!
Hopefully Landon & I will be posting about meeting our blogging buddies in person.....SOON!!!
