It would have been perfect!

We had a 4-day weekend to celebrate the 4th of July…

Wednesday night, we decided to go to the playgroup at the park with M. All was fine until we went home when M’s nose decided to start running like a faucet. I thought to myself, no big deal. It was allergies. Once we got all of “park stuff” out of her system and cleared out her nose, it will all be good.. So made sure to really clean her up well, and really was her face during that night’s bath..

We woke up Thursday morning and she was soo stuffed up. We ended up taking her into the bathroom with us while we showered so that she could benefit from the steam. It helped loosen up her stuffy nose and throat, so we went to the park to celebrate the 4th of July with the rest of the community.

As the day went on, we could see she was getting worse.. her nose was either constantly running, or stuffy. She was getting tired and grumpy.. so we just went home. We didn’t go out the rest of the day, we didn’t see fireworks that night.

During dinner, we noticed that she would clamp down really hard and would tense up her jaw.

Uh oh. Teething.

I peeked into her mouth and noticed that her little canines finally broke through and were little points outside her gums. I also noticed that her gums in the back of her mouth were swollen too. The poor girl was miserable. I gave her a half dose of PediaCare and it took care of the pain.

On Friday, we decided to rest. That’s when MY throat started to feel bad. I knew I was next. My parents came over that night to celebrate the rest of the weekend with us.

Saturday and Sunday, I was miserable! My throat stopped hurting but my head was aching, and my nose was stuffy. M started coughing because all the mucuous from her nose would travel down to her throat at night. That led to her coughing all day!

I had planned on taking my parents and brother to the beach. I planned on taking them to a Farmer’s Market and spending a whole day out and about San Diego..

But… with a toddler, nothing can really be planned.

M and I are both recovering. Thank God, this cold didn’t lead to ANOTHER ear infection for M.. she just finished her final dose of antibiotics for her LAST ear infection about two weeks ago!

Hope everyone else had a great weekend.

It was a great Thanksgiving weekend.  We were surrounded by family and it was fun.

Thanksgiving Day brought us to my inlaws house.  The entire family gets together to hang out and have some yummy food.  This was the first time M got to eat Thanksgiving food.  Last year she was too young.

The following day, instead of getting sucked into the Black Friday shopping, we decided to do something different.  We went to Balboa Park and hit up the science museum there.  It’s a great experience.  There were tons of hands on exhibits.  Little M had so much fun playing with all the things there.  We also walked around to some of the gardens, chased pigeons, spent some quality family time.  Just me, Hubby, and M.

That night my parents and brother came so we went out for dinner.

Saturday, we went out for lunch and wanted to go walking around.  The initial thought was to the mall, but we decided on something else for a change. 

I’ve lived in San Diego for just about two years now and I take for granted all the touristy things that one can do in this city that is just practically in my backyard! 

So we took the family to La Jolla Cove.  That was a very fun time.  Little M did NOT like the sand at all.  Hopefully by next summer, she’ll be over it so we can have some fun at the beach. 

Sunday we finally did some shopping.  I didn’t make the slightest dent into my Christmas List, but I still have some time..

How was your thanksgiving weeked?
