she specifically requests to eat tacos for dinner after not having hardly any solid food remain in her stomach for four full days. There is a little taco place near our home that we love. The guy who is at the counter almost every time we go says "hola!" and so Iris thought that was his name and proceeded to call him Hola. I think this began way back when she was just getting the hang of learning new words. So, anyways, we have taken to calling this place Hola's and will ask each other "want to go for tacos at Hola's tonight?"
It's so great to see Iris dancing around the living room, coloring, playing with toys, beating up on her sister, you know, the normal stuff. She is finally acting like herself again! Fans of Yo Gabba Gabba know what a dancey-dance is, and today Iris was teaching her dancey-dance to, well, to no one and everyone, I suppose. It sort of went "Raise your arm, raise your other arm. Raise your leg, raise your other leg" and was totally adorable.
I've been trying to get our home cleaned this morning, as well. We haven't been able to stay on top of chores as much as we usually do so things are in a state of grubbiness. Luckily living in a small apartment means that it's pretty easy to clean in a short amount of time.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to get the girls out of the home today without bringing them anywhere where any lingering germs can infect other children. I might just take them shopping or something and contain them a well antibacterial wipe swabbed shopping cart. I'm actually glad they will be well enough to be out and about this weekend so we can enjoy some stuff as a family again. A friend invited us to see a kid's musician that we all really like and it will be fun to do that, too. All of this sickness has meant two short weeks of work for Matt, as well, which we always like!
Ahhhh . . . it's like a light at the end of the tunnel :)
