So our holiday did not start out the way we thought. We thought we would wake up early, have Paige open up her Christmas stocking where we hid a key in the toe, have Paige drive us to church in her ("new to her") car and spend the day riding around looking at fun Christmas things maybe go to the State park and take a nice walk out in nature. Nope, not today. Paige woke up feeling gross and before we could start the day she was bowing to the porcelain god.
She was really sick, it took her until noon (after about an hour of coaxing) to start opening the gifts in her stocking and get to the one on the bottom that we have been waiting for her to open for two months. It is not easy to keep a secret like that let alone hide a big blue car. Needless to say she was excited and seemed very surprised!
After the additional surprise and another trip to the bathroom she managed to walk outside and take a look at her car.
Look how shiny...
Paige are you okay? "Yes, I am just full of excitement and diarrhea!" and with that said she started up the car, turned it off and went back to the bathroom then sat on the sofa for an hour or so and now is sleeping with Tulip the Christmas cat and slowly starting to feel better.
Not how we thought the day was going to go, but nothing makes me happier than being a Mom and a sick child on Christmas that needs me is a great gift even if I would rather her be healthy.
