It has been a tough week. Zoe's painting tells a good story: layers of turmoil. There was a clear path at times, but mostly we just kept attempting to get through the day. Pete left for New York on Monday [with a fever and the flu for sure], I tried to go to work [and I did, three times], Zoe went to preschool completely hysterical and miserable. Yesterday she woke up with a fever so I had to cancel my job and stay home with a sick kid [another first!]. Today I feel like crap, too. Can't wait for tomorrow!

Sometimes though, Zoe picks out something awesome at the store: like pink, heart-shaped sunglasses and everything is okay again. She loves these. She spun the sunglass display around and then put these in the cart at Kohl's. She loves pink. In every way. She picks all of her pink things out of her pile of little toys and keeps them together in a collection. There is a pink wind-up dragonfly, a pink flower, a ring with a pink heart on it, and some other things....
During our sick day yesterday Zoe thought she wanted to play outside so we got all bundled up and just took a walk around the house. It's been a long time since we had even been in the backyard. Hey, look, you know it's Spring when the "pretty flowers" are blooming again. She picked all of the dandelions she could find and then we just sat on the porch in the sun for a few minutes.
