We are on day two of a stomach bug-- a nasty, but mercifully swift bug that has moved from one member of the family to the next like an over-eager contra-dance partner. I have never in my life been in such close proximity to so many bodily fluids in such a brief period of time. Yuck.
The children have been handling it surprisingly well, and my sweet and heroic Ben traveled up to Boston just for the day to give a presentation. I feel like Mrs. Malard in Make Way for Ducklings waving good-bye to Mr. Mallard and saying, "Don't you worry, I know all about bringing up children." So here we are, me and my two lovely ducklings who happen to be spewing bodily fluids left and right. I wish I could put a more romantic spin on it, but we all know that taking care of sick children is hard and messy.
Above: our "sick bed" couch, which is one of the few surfaces that has remained clean.
Wishing you a healthy and wonderful weekend, and I"ll be back in (hopefully) healthier times.
