Hi everyone, DS is still sick but brighter than he has been. I went back to work today and luckily had a quiet day as I'm very short on sleep. DH is still gutted over his job loss but is also in some ways happy about it as continuing his home business does mean more flexibility.
We dropped into daycare with DS yesterday to change from 2 days a week down to 1 - we're fairly sure we can afford this - and DS was keen to get to his room/play area. It made us both feel a lot better about daycare that DS was obviously happy to be there.
Personally I'm still ill with a flu. My depression has improved and I'm not feeling the black dog's bite as much. In 2 weeks my parents will be back from overseas and they've volunteered to stay a week with us to help out. I hope they're able to do this because it would be great to have some help around the house - DS has discovered not only how to open the fridge, but how to open drink bottles (including milk) and tip them over the floor. Our house is sticky. Things still frustrate me easily but I'm trying to love DS more and not get angry with him for being a sick toddler (easier said than done when he's awake from midnight to 3:30am!)
