One sick little girl:-(

Is there anything worse than sick kids? Munchkin has a really bad flu bug of some sort, so she is home today and I was home with her this morning. She came home feeling bad last night, and then was awake throwing up all night and had a really bad fever this morning. It is just such a helpless feeling to know what kind of pain they are in and not have anything to help them with:-(

I stayed home this morning just to make sure that her fever wasn't rising and to make sure that she wasn't getting worse. She seemed to be OK, so I left her on the couch with two blankets, the remote, the plastic bucket, her phone, tissues, ginger ale and crackers. I think that about covers it, no?

The Boy is going home early so I can work at least half a day...everyone in unison now..."Awww". Actually, we could all maybe send some kind wishes to The Boy and Twin Sister. Kind of a rough week for them with some unknowns, and it is wearing on both of them quite a bit. So...good thoughts, please:-)

I thought Obama did a good job yesterday. Kinda somber, and maybe a bit long for an inaugural, but he definitely delivered. He certainly can turn a phrase...

Sorry for the shortness, but that is all I have for you right now. Gotta catch up for lost time!

[Funny addendum...based on a conversation with Laurwilk. There are things a "real" mom should know. One of them: Does Munchkin Have Tonsils?...Lol...I will let you know tomorrow!]

Hahahahaha. You are so funny! I'm looking forward to the answer to the tonsil question.

I'm sorry Munchkin isn't feeling well. Poor little thing! You did a great job though, 'Mom' and I'm pretty sure you covered everything she could possibly need today!

Aww sorry to hear she's sick again. I hope she feels better soon. It wasn't anything to do with the cooking yesterday, was it?

I really liked Obama's speech. Definitely got the goosebumps raging round my body! :)

it does suck when kids are sick. bot my nieces have been miserably sick for two weeks now. i foolishly, and out of the goodness of my heart, decided to give my sis and her hubs a break this past saturday so they can go catch a movie. cuz two weeks of a sick 1 and 3 year old will drive anybody insane. so what happens? i get their bug and now i'm in hell. lol.

hope munchkin gets better soon. lotsa fliuds!

If Munchkin has a fever, I've always brought mine down with 7Up or Sprite, recommended by a doctor friend. The carbonation might even settle the stomach. Hope she feels better soon!

Ah, poor Munchkin. Hope she is better soon!!!
Over here everybody is sick. All of my colleagues have been on sick leave on a few days the past two weeks.
Just I am still here. Ok, it's better to be healthy, but a few days at home, with good movies, a book, my Laptop,... Heaven!!
