Lesson 2,891

Never say

"Oh my child never has gastrointestinal illness"

Because, they will wake with it...

I had to call in with a sick child today, because PN has a case of the tummy bug. So far no vomiting, which is good...

I keep thinking could end up going in late, because kids are resilient, and she goes from feeling fine, to running the the powder room....

Ahhhhh kids. I will also say this she is getting so tall. She is a beauty, and spirited. I heart her, and it is nice to spend the day with her, even if she feels icky.

We have opted to watch a Princess sing along, and stay in our jammies...maybe I will catch up some housework....

The weekend was a busy one. DH was gone, so i took The Collective to Omaha to see a girlfriend from High School for the day. It was fun, she has 3 boys...I think PN felt like she was on the outs.

Yesterday we went to church, and came home, so I could catch up with all things housewifey. Ha, my plans were foiled as I called my Father's girlfriend, and noted they were 5 minutes away. They drove 2 1/2 hours to check on us, and bring Valentines for the kids...it is nice having them close.

This week is Valentines Day parties, Parent Teacher conferences.

I hope she gets better soon but not soon enough that you don't get a whole day off. Next time say "I've never won the lottery" instead.

Did you get the blue gatorade? :)

Poor PN! I hope she's on the mend and keeps her germs to herself. :) I'm sure you're Lysoling everything.

M2 has a nasty cough. No strep. No fever. I'm supposed to purchase some OTC Claritin tonight & start dosing.

It's been nice having the warmer temps the past couple days except the yard is beginning to thaw and we have dogs. I'm thinking of Saran wrapping their feet each time they leave the house...or, just never letting them in the house again.

I imagine that PN's beauty and spirit shine through even when she is sick. Illness can't take away everything from us.

I was wondering how PN was doing with the boys on the weekend. Are the boys around SR's age?

If your father and his girlfriend were "5 minutes away" why'd they drive 2 1/2 hours? I'm lost ...

Blue Gatorade.. GAH>>>!!!!!

ANY Gatorade, combined with a pukey stomach, is a bad combination. It does not come out of neutral carpet.

ick.

Hope she's feeling better!!
