Hubby left for Dubai ten days ago and went directly to Indonesia for his never-ending business trips. Kiddos and I miss him already but thanks to Skype we remain connected. We see and hear him everyday. He hears and sees the kiddos laugh, cry and move around.
Of course, this isn’t new. He’s gone every month, after all. That’s the nature of his job. But on this business trip, kiddos have stretched my capability and so far, I have appeared a cool mom to my cooler kids.
Firstborn was happily playing with a playmate last weekend when from afar, I saw him stopped running and suddenly threw up. It wasn’t a good sight but he was a good sport about it. After cleaning him up, he wanted to play some more and I just have to talk him out of it. And he had diarrhea, too. Good thing, it was only for a day.
Today, Second-born woke up from a night of vomiting (3 times) to a diarrhea. We went to the doctor and got some medicine. When we went home baby was still happy and active that I had to force him to have a nap. After 8 diaper changes for the day for Second-born, kiddos finally allowed me to sit down undisturbed in front of my computer. A few stirring here and there, I hope to finish four articles tonight. But before I do that, I just have to write this post appreciating these two kids for their happy disposition, even during sickness, make me a calm Mom:-).
