Kid germs are the worst...

Jan 31, 2014

We have been suffering from a serious case of sick babies at our house.  Sunday night Scarlett woke us up with the beginnings of a 24 stomach bug, we spent all day washing our hands, our hair, the couch, her sleeping bag, her pillow, the floor and her jammies (2 times).  We watched movies all day cuddled next to a yellow mixing bowl.   Eventually she recovered with a lingering case of "I now try to fake sickness so I can watch TV all day", but we are slowly shaking that off. 
And as much as we tried to shelter Dominic from the stomach bug germs they came on full force Wednesday night.  The poor thing couldn't figure out if he needed to lay his head down or play with his sister.  He slept most of the day and smiled through the rest.  He was a serious trooper, but now we have a case of the "I don't want to eat because I am afraid it will come back to haunt me" bug.  He is refusing most food and will no longer drink more than 1 oz. of milk at a time.  Snack time has become a hourly occurrence, and a habit I am sure I will be pulling my hair out to break.

But as of today we have two much healthier babies, and two thankful parents that have so far escaped the vicious plague that has graced our habitat. 

One day at a time in mommy day at a time.
