Surprise!

Last night Kendall and I did our normal bed-time routine. Put the kids to bed, turn off the lights and head downstairs to exercise while we watch a movie. There were a couple of variations though: The kids got to bed at 9:00 instead of 8:00, Avri came downstairs (we have no idea why), and I didn't exercise, I instead laid on the LuvSac trying not to throw up. At 11:30 when the movie was over we went up to go to bed and I could hear Talmage talking. I went to inspect. Surprise! Avri and Talmage were both still awake and "reading" in the book nook. What kind of irresponsible parents let their 2 and 3 year old read until 11:30 at night?

Next surprise: This morning at 5:00 I woke up to Avri crying in her bedroom. I went in to calm her down but instead got hit by the overwhelming stench of puke. For the next 45 minutes I bathed her, re-dressed her, pulled her bed apart, made up a new bed on the couch and got her all settled in. I got to bed just in time for Kendall's alarm to go off for work. Ugh.

So today we are taking things easy. We've all been sick, again, and I'm getting very tired of it. But there is a bright side. I've lost 5 pounds since Thursday and I took this funny picture:(Avri with the bowl that I gave her to throw up in.) Glad that I can still laugh when I feel so yucky!

Oh how sad! Being sick is the worst! It seems like your family has had their fair share (and then some) of health woes. I hope everyone gets healthy soon!

I'm sorry, being sick is no fun..especially when it's the kids. You feel so bad for them. I hope you're all feeling better now!

Nothing makes sick worse than cleaning up sick kids. Bless your heart. I wish I could come and help.

Hallelujah -- it's not just me!!! I've been stuck in this house for 3 days now with puking children. Then for added fun, Brynlee woke up this morning with stuff oozing out of her ear. (yes an ear infection, no the ear drum didn't burst because she has tubes). I feel like we have been sick since Christmas with no break!! I'm so tired of it that I could scream. So, I'm very sorry for you misfortune but so happy to have somebody to relate to!

So i was told over and over again that when its "your kids" it wont bother you... WRONG!!! When Brooke threw up yesterday, i was still TOTALLY gagging when i was cleaning it up...

Good luck!
