...to the den of sickness. we have sicknesses of all kinds floating thru, whatever your body might desire. We are currently sharing croup with anyone interested in a barking cough, sore throat, and slight fever.

We are on our eighth illness since October. That means we have been sick more than well around here since fall. I remember being sick a lot as a kid, but watching my kids go thru illnesses is just the pits. They feel so terrible and there's very little you can do to help them. And then you are relatively quarantined, no kids allowed to visit and you cant hang out anywhere with kids, so that means no church, no school, no playdates. Just a lot of hanging out at home. Which is great for the first day or two, but after that gets a bit boring for the other child (as well as mom.) And then when you finally do venture out after a week indoors, and the child begins hacking up a lung in the check out line, you endure the critical stares of other moms (of all people) who have forgotten what it's like to be at home with a sick kid.

But Spring is coming, and soon the weather will change. And this is all a part of growing up. And i try to remind myself that this is good, in a way, because it is building their immune system. And, it reminds me to be thankful for all my mom went thru with me!
