But....on Thursday my kids got the flu and it was the best day we've had in a long time.
Of course the throwing up part wasn't fun.
Jack wanted juice right before each vomiting session, then tried his little heart out to hold it back. Each time he would moan, "nooooo mommy" and break my heart.
And poor little Lucy. Why, she didn't even know what was going on. She saved up and got it all out in two tries. And by "all" I mean, TONS and TONS!
But the great part was that my kids were so mellow. We just sat and watched "toons" all day. One right after another. I held and snuggled with them both and I was in selfish heaven. All the while knowing how crummy it is to be sick, but still enjoying a day off from the norm.
Lucy got a bath in the sink.
Then Jack, in his weak state wanted a bath in the sink too! I tried to explain that the water wouldn't come up high enough and that he might get cold, but he didn't care.
What a way to spend the day. Bathing in the sink! I wish I could have joined in!
Now I'm just holding my breath, hoping that this little bug will pass right on by. It already got TROY.
Watch...it will come Wednesday night when Troy's brother, wife and 5 kids come for our Thanksgiving feast.
Think positive thoughts, Ali. POSITIVE!
