good grief

Scratch that. Now it's 4 out of 4 that have been hit by the flu bug. We are going on week #2 here and poor ol' Dave came home early from work yesterday and looked worse than I did when I was at my lowest point. Blech, this stinks!!

And naturally wouldn't you know that Dylan was up at 3:30 this morning (as if that isn't bad enough when noone feels well?) and just as I got him to fall back to sleep around 6, his big sister wakes up and is ready to start the day. I need some serrrrious coffee here. With a side helping of patience. Actually, make that an extra large helping of patience. Although Cassidy is feeling better, she has perfected this really annoying whine. You know, the one that I was saying "was heart wrenching" when she was sick? Well, now she knows that when she is not feeling well, she gets lots of attention from mama. Hence the fake coughing and constant "I'm sick"s that I heard throughout the day yesterday.

And Dylan. Aw, the little sicky has been forced to wear a bib at all times right now. The poor spit up guy hasn't been spared the flu either.



Is winter over yet? Hellllp!

Oh no! Prayers for lots of rest and a quick recovery. I wish we were closer so we could bring you a pot of chicken soup or something!

Oh Laurie - I hope somehow you are able to get to bed early tonight! I hope Dave & Dylan are feeling better soon too! I can just picture Cassidy's new perfected whine - I am sure Anne has the same one :)
Get some sleep tonight!!!

Remember the days, back before you had kids, when you could actually relax on the couch all day if you weren't feeling well! It's sooooo much harder to be sick when you have a baby and a toddler to take care of! Hopefully you're all on the mend and will have an illness-free rest of the winter.

Poor you guys. I hope you are all on the mend now.
