Word of the Day - Part 5

This is one of my favorite new words. There is a two-fold reason. #1, I first heard it in one of my favorite TV shows. #2, it describes one of my favorite things.


pe trī kôr [noun]

The fresh, pleasant smell just after rainfall that breaks a dry spell.

Things I've learned...

Valentine's Day this year was a total bust. Baby, hubby and I all succumbed to a nasty stomach bug the night before, that lingered in the hubby and me until the day after. During that very miserable 48 hours I learned a few things.

#1 - The capacity of a 10 month old's stomach seems MUCH larger when it's spread all over your chest.

#2 - A sports bra will hold a remarkable amount of liquid.

#3 - My baby bounces back from illness WAY faster than I do. She was back to almost 100% in less than 24 hours.

#4 - The amount of energy my recovering baby had was inversely proportional to the energy that was being sapped from my body by the virus.

#5 - I have the most awesome friends ever, who were willing to drop off things like Pedialyte and Gatorade since me and the hubby were to sick to even think about driving to the store.
