a-CHOO, sniff, cough....

Avery's sickness has spread. Oh my, has is spread. I suppose this happens in every house when one has yucky germs. Ya wanna know how it went? Avery gave it to me, then Daddy got it, and today Liv got it. She's got a constant stream of snot coming out of her nose, and with her being on the move all-the-time (yes, even when sick) it's hard to keep on top of it.

I was able to take a nap (with a 5 year old opening the window, shining light on me, and trying to tickle me) today, and PG also was able to come home and take a rest. Why is it that when we adults get sick, all we want to do is sleep, and our kids just keep on going. Liv JUST took her first nap of the day, and it's about 7 pm! Avery's been going all day long too (and day 1 of hot dogs in squares has not been good AT ALL).

Ya know when your body is so sore and achy that the hair on your eyebrows hurts? Yeah, that's me right now...

Darn that preschool and their germs...... :)

Hey as for cutting food in shapes you should check michaels and hobby lobby, they have these really small cookie cutters all under about an inch in tons of different shapes sometimes in the cake isle or else the poly clay isle.

My daughter has been home yesterday and today from school with a cold... my dear husband has it now :(... I have been taking Airborne hoping that it boosts my immune system and I don't get it.

ZICAM nasal swabs are a great product to try if you already have a cold... I sweart they cut the time to get over a cold in half.

Yucky stuff. I remember when we were all sick at the same time, it's no fun at all. Thinking of you all.
Will Avery have to miss her red,white and blue day today? I have a very hard time finding something for her to wear....as you can imagine....THOSE colors on my Maddie....yuk! ha ha

Not that she would fall for this, but if you take a hot dog and slit the end to make "8 legs" you can then boil it and the legs curl up to look like an octapus. It depends on my kid's moods but sometimes it works.

We serve it over Mac and Cheese but you can serve it over some plain noodles if she can eat that!

Oh man, that is efinitely the pits when everyone gets sick. I hear ya on the eyebrow thing, every part of your body aches when you fall ill.
Landen goes to a daycare so as you know he can bring home anything and everything under the sun, not fun at all! He has brought home croup (twice), ear infections (I guess they can be contagious), colds, etc....
Get all the rest you can. We have been doing homeopathic remedies when he gets sick b/c it seems to kill off just the "BAD" bacteria and not the good that he needs, it works quite well i might add.
Hope you all feel better!

I hate being sick and boy can it spread through a house! I am going with we are bigger so we must get sicker and kids have way more energy than us anyway! I hope you feel better soon! if you lived HERE we would bring you soup!

Craziness, Craziness, Not fun. I think Alyssia has one constant cold all year. She may have allergies or something. Hope you all feel better soon.

I hope you get well soon! Take lots of vitamins! FYI, some children's cold medicines wind them up. Triaminic is the worst.

Theresa Marie said...

oh yucky! I hope that you guys feel better soon. Sorry the food stuff isn't going well either. :( Big Hugs. I think of you often.

I hate that feeling. Unfortunately, I have it so often. I have fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. I sometimes say that I hurt so bad that even my hair hurts. Not fun!! I have empathy for you.
