Stayin' Home

The flu is going around our family right now. Not like I'm used to though. Usually sickness hits my children one after the other over a 1-2 month span. This time it is coming in waves. Last month it was the girls. Right now it is Jonny. When he is on Motrin he is fine, but as it is wearing off, he becomes this hot, lifeless, clingy child that my heart just breaks for.........until the Tylenol kicks in. Then he is fine again and the cycle repeats itself throughout the day. I'm sure you Moms know what I'm talking about.

Adam is finally feeling well enough that he went to school today. The whole weekend was spent in our bed and I even stayed home from church with him this past Sunday. At lunchtime yesterday, he said something very nice to me. I had just made grilled cheese sandwiches and was pouring some juice when Adam asked, "You do this everyday for them when I am at school?" When I shook my head yes, Adam replied, "That's cool. They are so lucky Mom." It made me realize how blessed I am to be able to stay at home and take care of my family.

Although I could of ended it on that note, I can't help but share how cute Sveta is. She came up to me last night to tell me how much her throat hurt and how she thinks she should stay home with me. Concerned, I felt her forehead and asked if it hurt to swallow. No fever and she answered, "No I said it hurt right here." as she pointed to her neck. When I acted very concerned and told her she should go lay down to rest her poor old neck, she quickly told me she was fine. Nice try Svet (nickname purposely pronounced without the A). :)
