Guys, GUYS, we have been sick at my house for I don't know how long. Actually, I do know how long - seven weeks. It started with a tickle in my throat which developed into a cold that wouldn't end. I gave said cold to my ten year old who gave it to his four year old brother. Once the cold cleared after weeks and weeks, the ten year old got a stomach bug, the husband finally got the horrible cold. Yesterday, I thought we had the all clear. We even got to go outside and walk to the playground. Last night, my four year old got the stomach bug. Sigh.
To quote the mom in "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No good, Very Bad Day", "Some days are like that. Even in Australia." Some days are just going to be sick days, especially when you have school-aged kids in the house. Here is a list for those days when the sniffles and the tummy troubles just won't leave you alone.
