Mystery Virus of Doom

Last Wednesday night, I was dead asleep when I heard it. That familiar gag, splat, scream routine. I knew pretty much right away that Henry had thrown up. The throwing up continued for a couple hours. I assumed it was reflux related and he would be better by the morning. Ha. Wrong.

The next day, well I'll say we he had some lower gastrointestinal issues, followed by more throwing up. The same issues continued Friday. But by Saturday we were starting to think we were in the clear. Over the weekend, Hen stayed pretty much the same. A little tired, and a little reluctant to eat -- but pretty normal. 

However, by Monday night, Hen started coughing. Not a ton, but just enough for us to realize that he was still not feeling great. I figured he was now getting a cold in addition to the stomach bug he was getting over. Tuesday and Wednesday morning, Henry was just grumpy and tired, stuffy and coughing. 

Then, after a nice long nap Wednesday the stomach issues started up again. He spent several hours throwing up that afternoon. Yesterday was more sleepiness, grumpiness and coughing. With a little more throwing up last night. Ugh.  

Today, I finally called the doctor. The nurse said Henry has the exact symptoms of a virus that is going around the Twin Cities. She said its been lasting a week plus, so we just have to wait for it to run its course. Boo. Hopefully, Henry will be feeling better soon and no one else will get it!

Oh NO! Not Henry, too! We just got over an awful virus that is spreading like wildfire down here -- I've been afraid to leave the house with Ethan in fear he'll catch it again. Poor little guy! I hope he's feeling better soon and no one else catches it.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
