they’re dropping all around me

Emma’s down for the count. Dan barely made the drive home from work.
The house is quiet. Everyone is asleep in their separate corners. But I’m standing strong–must be that pregnant immune system or something. Or all the praying I’m doing….

Mary is slowly bouncing back–never too sick to work on bird calls with her identiflyer.I think I’m going to have to get rechargeable batteries for this thing.

Yesterday I was sitting in the living room with the front door open and I kept hearing a house finch singing over and over outside. I couldn’t believe how it kept calling and calling. Then I realized I was sitting on the "Identiflyer". duh.

Emma has the bug worst of everyone so far. She slept on the bathroom floor from 4am until at least 10am–afraid she was going to be sick again. Poor thing. There was nothing I could do to persuade her to come out of there. At one particularly high point (or delusional) I heard her sing through ALL the verses of "She’ll Be Coming ‘Round The Mountain". I never knew she knew all the verses.

Alright back to nursing and praying…just wanted to check in with the healthy outside world….

  1. Oh, sending you helthy vibes. And since laughter is the best medicine:KNOCK KNOCKWho’s There?Shelby.Shelby Who?Shelby Comin’ Round the Mountain When She Comes – YeHaw!

    That’s all I’ve got. Except good wishes.

  2. I do the sleeping in the bathroom thing too. Always have. If you have a tub in there and you cant convince her to come out, you can always put a pillow and blanket in the tub. It’s kinda comfy… moreso than the floor, anyway.

  3. So sorry to hear about your sickly brood!

    Do continue to take good care of you, whilst tending to the sick…

    Sending you healthy, chickensoupy thoughts your way…

  4. Thank you for taking the time to post the link to the Identiflyer, my little boy will love that. We just had the stomach thing over the weekend, too. Hope your family feels better soon!!! Best wishes.

  5. I am so sorry. We went through this in January, no fun at all. Get better, go slowly. My doc suggested decaffeinated black tea for stomach troubles – add that to the peppermint and chamomile rotation.

  6. AW yuck! That is so rough. I hope EVERYONE is recovered quickly. Poor baby, sleeping in the bathroom. :(Hope your weekend is happier and healthier.

  7. Our house is now the sick house! I wanted to let you know that I LOVE Marys “identflyer” so much that I just ordered one for Parkers 3rd birthday. I also picked out additional “frog” & “owl” sounds too. I think that he is going to love it. Thanks for sharing!
