What I'll remember about you Brett, on days like today, is what a kind and thoughtful person you are, what an incredibly helpful husband and doting father you are.
I know in years to come my memory bank will be filled to the brim with vague memories of all the incredible things you did as a man, a hubby and a daddy but I thought I'd specifically note it down today for posterity's sake.
Woke and tended to Zippi while I fed Zeeki
Went to Coles early to buy cabbages since my mastitis had flared up again suddenly overnight
Brought back hashbrowns to cook up for brekky for us all
Cleaned the bread maker Hazel kindly leant us, milled some wheat and put on a loaf
Cleaned up the vomit when it went all over the kitchen from poor little Zip
Made me a cuppa and sent me back to bed so I could sleep while Zeeki slept
Set up the bigger kids with a Little House movie so you could stay with Zip while she rested
Made lunch for the big kids while I slept
Put on and hung out several loads of washing
Cleaned up more vomit of Zippi's
Made me hot soup when I woke up and brought it into me to eat in the quiet of the bedroom while Ezekiel slept
Showered with Zeeki after changing his nappy and had him pee on you!!!
Made dinner (yummy Tomato, white bean, carrot and zucchini soup served with the yummy fresh bread) while I tried to settle our very unsettled bubba boy in the afternoon hours
Cleaned up more vomit and disinfected and washed more clothes and buckets
Made the bed while I slept on the lounge
Brought me panadol and water
Took time to praise kids for their drawings and effort at helping out today
Put the kids to bed after reading Zip her special bedtime story
Woke in the night with me. Took Zeeki while I tried to get Zippi's temp down
Took Zippi to hospital to get the rash (which appeared very quickly)checked out despite being tired and wanting to sleep!!!
Thank you for all you do my mate. We both have our faults but I think we make a good team!
Today, especially, when my own immune system is fighting hard, you did so much without complaint and still managed to laugh with me! Thanks for doing all the stuff that no one but me sees. I appreciate it all and love you my Brett x
More to come another time,
