A blog about raising my family in downtown Vancouver

Despite Being Tired We Danced

Over the last 6 days there has been sickness and a few growing pains in our home. Nothing major and more like just bad timing overall. Ben got sick right when we moved and thankfully when things heated up I remembered where I had packed the Advil despite still being surrounded by boxes. PSA Side note: Remember where you pack your kids meds, it will save you some stress!

Today was the first day in many days that I did not wear stretchy yoga pants or twisted my hair up bun. Instead it was freshly washed and nicely flat ironed, meaning I had 15 minutes of time that I could parent from the bathroom. Woohoo! This also means that things are on the upswing, which called for a short excursion out of the new place to check out the neighbourhood. We are seriously not very far from our old place but their is still a newness about being here. Despite the greyness that this January day brought, and the tiredness that has been felt by all, we had a momentary burst of joyful energetic happiness and danced around the park.

I'm hoping for more happy dances in the days ahead and also more chances at settling into our new home. It can be fun settling into a new home with your family, it feels like sort of like a treat to just hang out and make new memories together.

Moving is so stressful, adding in a sick kid would make it so much harder. Glad you guys got out to explore your new digs. Bonus to be near such a nice little water feature - water is so calming. All the best to you in getting comfy in your new place.
