Spray Me Down With Lysol

I'm not usually a germ phobic person. Usually, I don't get bothered. Sickness among kids just seems like the norm so we don't make it a big deal, but this could be some sort of week.

Little one spent the weekend in barf mode. He seems to be done with that now and just really intent on pulling his tube out. That means every few hours I'm trying some new way of taping the silly thing down to his head. So far, I haven't found the answer to that one.

Little Miss just started barf mode with a spectacular display at lunch. Quite impressive for such a little tyke. I love interrupting lunch to give a bath and do laundry and disinfect the kitchen. While doing these things Little One again tried to pull his tube.

All four are feverish, achy, coughing and snotty. They all have headaches and icky tummies.

I'm getting a little tired of being sneezed on, coughed on and vomited on. It's bad when I have to change clothes before noon.

I think I might blame this on The Mr. getting a flu shot last week and the rest of us not getting one yet. Either that or Little One's visit. Or maybe our trip to Children's. Or our trip to public health for WIC checks.

I guess it doesn't matter where it came from, it's here. It will make for a longer week than usual, especially with The Mr. in the big apple, but it seems our schedule is pretty light this week, so for that I'm thankful. I think I'll be skipping some other activities too. I might even cancel on our teens. We'll just see how it goes.

Time to clean things up again.

Don't you just love those days. I wish I could be there to help, but my youngest dd S is just getting over a sore throat and fever. She's been very cuddly since last Fri.
