On Monday, when I picked up Ciaran from preschool, it appeared that Ciaran had pink eye. The next morning when he woke up - it was clear that he had a nasty case of pink eye - probably the worst case I have ever seen. So he was home for the week and was completely out of sorts. No preschool, no routine, sore, itchy scratchy eyes - to say he was difficult - is a understatement. He was not able to express his uncomfortableness adequately with words - so instead he used behaviour.
My Mom, Dad and I were absolutely exhausted by the end of the week. The boys had a hard time settling at bedtimes because again there are so used to their routines.Even Rowan was a bit out of sorts.
We survived. The boys had a great time going for walks with their Granda, climbing trees, and having him read stories to them before they went to bed. They also loved the gourmet meals made by Nana and all of the love and attention she showered on them. Thanks Mom and Dad for everything! I know the smiles, love and cuddles make it all worth it - our boys absolutely adore you :)
