It's been quite a week here. Clara's recovering from croup and is on some yucky steroids. I know that many kids get super hyper on steroids, but for Clara they just seem to make her immeasurably emotional. Like PMS times eight billion. She just whines and cries non-stop. And her normally lengthy attention span of 2.3 minutes shortens to approximately 18 seconds. That combination, along with being snowed in and house-bound for many days (and let's go ahead and blame the full moon while we're at it, too) have meant that today was one of those more... challenging... parenting days. There was no school because of snow, so she didn't get to celebrate Valentine's Day there with her school friends and teachers, but we did fit in just a little Valentine celebration at home. Thought I'd share these photos and wish all you blog followers a very happy Valentine's Day from all the Hardys!
Ready to decorate her mini-heart cake!
And once it's decorated... on to the eating!
She mostly just licked the icing and ate the sugar, but she was happy...
And her daddy decorated one for me, too.
Thankful for all of the love in my life on this Love-Day! Hope your heart is full, too.
