Flu Advisory

If you catch the flu and have to stay home from work it might actually be convenient for your spouse to be sick too. Recent studies* have found that two sick parents are roughly equivalent to one healthy parent.

It is recommended that ill parents hide all the "kitchen" toys so the children don't try to "take care of" the parents by making pretend foods that add to the nauseousness of the parents.


*non-scientific study performed on 3/4/2008, results might be slightly skewed due to the delirious nature of the adult test subjects.

Right after I threw up last week for the fourth time, Miss Peach looked at me and said "Mommy do you need some sushi?". It just about sent me back to the bathroom...

Oh hun.... get better soon!

Thinking back, some of the most creative moments come from my boys trying to "take care" of me. :)

Now I worry that they might be trying to "take care" of me, Sopranos style!

Oh yuck and so sorry. This is such a nasty bug.

But I have to say, I was SO glad that hubby and I had the flu exactly one week apart (literally, we BOTH threw up at about 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, one week apart).

Anyway, the last time we had the stomach flu bug it was at the same time...and THAT was the pits. BIG time. It was so much better having one us happy and capable of handling the 3 munchkins.

Get well soon!!!

Feel better! I am also impressed by your blogging ability while sick. My kiddo wouldn't raid the kitchen to take care of me, yet, but he is learning empathy. When I was laying on the couch the other day watching him play because I was too sick to move he would periodically come over and rub my head.
