Pacey and I love red ripe strawberries, we are the strawberry monsters of the house. Last year our PB & J play group went strawberry picking and had a fantastic time so I planned another trip to the patch this year too. However after a night of being awake with a fussy baby and very sick two year old I wasn't sure strawberry picking would happen.
As my mom delivered medicine, donuts, fruit and juice early this morning, the flooring guy installed our upstairs bathroom floor, Pacey laid lethargic on the couch with a high fever, our family room floor was covered with hot wheels and I was in robot mode from no sleep Trex and I decided to get over it and get dressed to go strawberry picking.
I am glad we did it, one hour away from the chaos, away from crying and out in the fresh air. We met two new moms and their kiddos, Trexen fed some goats and we came home with 5lbs of strawberries. I am excited to cut them up, sprinkle on sugar and enjoy.
Two and a half weeks have passed and it is clear Brenner has colic. His pediatrician thinks it is internal colic but in my mind colic is colic, he is fussy, thinks he needs to eat constantly and is determined to make the next year challenging. Despite that though we are going to try our very best to make the most of summer, get dressed and venture out even when I am in robot mommy mode.
