{Cheesecake ice cream with rainbow sprinkles}

Just before Courtney came down with hand, foot and mouth we were out running some errands. We passed by Coldstone and I decided we should stop and grab some. It had been so long since I had Coldstone and I knew Courtney would love it. decided on cheesecake with rainbow sprinkles. Because what is ice cream without sprinkles? :)

"No no Daisy" is because when we first went outside Daisy was running around like a wild animal and Courtney was laughing so Daisy tackled her. Courtney wasn't happy but it didn't stop her from continuing to play.

{We're a sick bunch}

Over the weekend Courtney came down with her second hit with Hand, Foot and Mouth. Not to be confused with Hoof and Mouth. We were aware that another child from daycare had it the week prior so we knew to keep an eye out for it. It first appeared as a small diaper rash and then spread like wildfire all over Courtney. We went to the doctor on Monday where we got two creams. The viral infection (which is what HFM is) also attacked her exzema so that flared up bad too. Poor thing.

So she's home with me for the next few days until the rash clears up. I'm also sick and still working from home. I'm exhausted. Oh yeah, and it's snowing. Bad. So we aren't leaving the house either.

You can see in this picture the HFM on her face. :(

And what our family room looks like at the moment.

Oh yeah, and you can see in the previous picture Daisy is wearing the cone of shame. She had hematoma ear surgery last Friday.

{Things that melt your ice cold heart}

Last night Courtney and I headed to the bank to deposit some dolla dolla bills y'all. After our transaction I grab her a dum dum sucker that they have sitting on the counter. I strap her into her carseat and hand her the sucker. And what does my just barely 19 month old say to me? "Thank you Mommy." It works. It really works. Teaching your kids manners young.

So as she finishes up her sucker I put my arm back and ask her to hand me the sucker stick since she's devoured the candy. And what does she say? "No ma'am."

No one else...

No one else will ever know
the strength of my love for you.
After all, you're the only one who knows
what my heart sounds like from the inside.

Thank you pinterest.
