Today Coco and I got out for a nice long walk in the neighborhood. We both needed a good dose of fresh air because yesterday I was sick with the nasty virus that's going around. It's the reason Coco threw up on the way home from IKEA. Although J and I solemnly agreed that she must suffer motion sickness, I woke up at 2 am to J taking the cover off of his duvet. "What's going on?" I asked in that middle of the night sleepy voice. And he told me. Coco had puked all over his duvet. Yuck. Luckily it was a clean hit and once he'd changed the cover, we all went back to sleep until morning. Then I woke up feeling like death and it just got worse as the day went on. J is the sweetest. He rushed home from work, took care of Coco and fed her dinner and then went to the store for me at 8pm when the only thing that sounded good was Top Ramen and Sprite. He came back, made it for me and got me all set up on the couch and we watched a movie. My hero!
Today everyone is feeling better and Coco is such a little explorer.
She was totally amazed by the VW bus at the Volkswagen garage. She pointed and said, "Mommy!" and we had to cross the street to get a closer look.
I had horrible flashbacks of our vacation last summer when I saw their Corsica Ferries sticker. ;)
Then she spent 20 minutes toddling through our neighbor's courtyard, pausing to check out their groovy Panasonic bicycle.
Next stop was the pharmacy. She was in love with the little children's area and carried around the stuffed animals and took a look at the pamphlets.
Once she had the pharmacist's attention, she threw the pamphlet on the floor.
Then she practiced climbing in and out of the little armchair four or five times. It was super cute. Naturally!
Finally, we went to the store and I was delighted to see that the overpriced berries have arrived! No surer sign that spring is just around the corner. Hurrah!
