This is the best I could get with the three of them...
The girls had a New Year's celebration at school during the break. They enjoyed a balloon man/Magician, arts and crafts and music. They counted down and had a balloon drop at 3pm, it was loud! Most of all I think they were happy to run around with their friends and talk about what they have been up to. For the real New Year's Eve we rented movies, ate pop corn, and one by one everyone but me fell asleep before midnight. Mimi requested I wake her up so she can see the ball drop but she refused to open her eyes when I did she just stuck her tongue out so I can give her her chemo pill and she fell back to sleep.
Balloon Drop at 3pm :)
Mimi has been doing okay for the most part, for some reason this round of steroids really did a number on her. She would get very upset about silly things to the point of crying for hours and unable to catch her breath, it was so hard to watch. The thing that would set her off was/is clothes, she hates the feeling of most clothing and has only one outfit she will wear. I have picked my battles and just keep rewashing the same outfit for her. Good thing she wears a uniform to school and it does not seem to bother her. The good thing is she knows it is the pills doing it, she has learned to eventually calm down and take a rest. Thankfully Dan has been home so he was able to stay home with her so she can calm down while I took Iza and Magi to do things. I do feel bad when she misses things but the reality is she needs her chill time, we all do.
In a nutshell: It was a roller coaster week, emotions ranging from full out excitement and joy to some tantrums and tears and some lazy chill days in between. But I would not change anything for the five of us being together!
