Is all I have to say about our current state.

Remember how excited I was about my kid-free date night at the fancy schmancy Hall's Chophouse?

Yeah, me too, but it's a very sad and distant memory.  I started feeling rough on the ride downtown and when we got to the restaurant, whammy.  I was in full blown stomach bug disaster mode.  I ate approximately 3 bites of my delicious meal.  

I was unable to drink my pink champagne (now you know, I'm not exaggerating, I really was sick).  We were home within 45 minutes of leaving on our date.  Womp, womp.  What a failure!
Mr. BMJ took Baby Girl on a fancy, tutu-wearing, daddy daughter dinner date Saturday night so I could rest.  She was still feeling pretty rough, but I thought she was on the mend.  

I finally felt better on Sunday.  Just in time for Baby Girl to take a turn for the worse with her cold.  Maybe taking her to the park wasn't such a great idea?!

We went to the doctor this morning and she has an ear infection.  She also, according to the doctor, is probably at the tail end of having influenza B.  Poor poor baby.  

So, that's our weekend in a nutshell.  My throat hurts and I haven't slept in 2 nights because of Baby Girl's coughing fits, so I'm not feeling very talkative today.  

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Aside from all of the above, my bestie Hoda Kotb is coming into town to film two episodes of The Today Show.  It's Thursday morning for about 5 hours.  It doesn't look like I'm going to be able to swing getting down there to see her.  Not reunited and it feels so bad.  


  1. Oh, no!!! And that dinner looks so good. What a bummer! Hope you get another date night soon. If you were here in my city, I'd baby sit. I have a degree in child development and I'm pretty good with kiddos. Hope baby girl gets better soon. She looks adorable in her tutu.

  2. So sorry for all of the funk! I saw a Hoda book this weekend and thought of you! Feel better!

  3. Poor guys. So sorry you both feel icky. Hope you are on the mend soon. Love baby girl's tutu!

  4. Booo hope you all start feeling better soon! What a bummer about dinner

  5. You need a break lady! I hope you all are on the mend by the weekend. How sweet of him to take her out to give you a break.

  6. feel better. I feel your pain. Sterling has strep throat. I feel like we have all been sick alot this year! I so want to see Hoda but realistically I am not gonna take my ass and Sterling downtown at 7 to wait in line!

  7. that sucks!! I hope you are feeling better. I need to watch the today show on Thurs and look for you in the crowd if you change your mind!!

  8. Oh no!! Hope yall are both feeling better. Halls is one of my favorite fancy restaurants downtown!


A toast to you for sharing your thoughts!
