The Best Thing . . .?
The best thing about missing the annual Valentine's Couple's Retreat: getting the chocolate covered strawberries anyway. (Thanks, Don!)
Our whirling dervish caught pink eye and an upper respiratory infection the day before The Calm One and I were to go away overnight with other couples from our church. Add a nasty case of croup and our fate was sealed.
But it allowed us extra time to spend with our youngest son even if he couldn't appreciate it to it's fullest extent.
Little Man wasn't quite up to his old tricks: climbing over furniture, digging trenches into the carpet with various wheeled toys, and pulling his sister's hair.
Come to think about it, maybe the best thing wasn't the strawberries after all.
