So, the past 2 months have not been kind to us sickness-wise. We have had everything under the sun. Just when I thought, okay, we are done here, our family gets something else. This week's illness- the flu. Last weeks: stomach flu(luckily that one stayed with Aubrey). All 3 girls have the flu right now! Aubrey came down with it Saturday morning, Ella Sunday night, Cali last night. The older girls have had fevers up to almost 105 and I'm worried what Cali's will do tonight. They all are miserable and its scary when you have such a little baby with it too. I look at them and wish it was me instead of them. Its sad when your kids get so sick and all you can do is give them medicine to help the symptoms and hold them, but you can't take the misery away. It has also been hard on me trying to take care of 3 kids that are all so sick at the same time. 3 kids and 2 arms-its hard! I can't imagine what its like for people that have 4, 5, or more kids! I hope I stay well so I can take care of everyone! I feel so blessed to have had the help of my dear sweet husband and a wonderful close friend nearby who is there for me when I need her(thanks for everything Melissa!)
So, we have spent many days inside lately. With the flu, stomach flu, ear infections, strep throat, pink eye, colds, and other fun viruses filling the past two months of our lives, you may wonder what has occupied our time. Good ol' puzzles, books, the wii(Yes, we got one!! That will be a future post),movies, Webkinz, and today: creating our own M&M people(Thanks Natalie for the idea!). Aubrey and Ella loved picking out the features for their own M&M girls. I did too! Can you guess who's is who's?
