Sometimes It Ain’t Pretty

We just returned from a family “outing” to the emergency room. Everyone is ok, but we had quite the rough day. I will spare you the details, but will just say Simon is sick with a stomach virus, and that I had to take two showers today, so did Jeramy, and Simon had four. Many loads of laundry were washed. We can add this day to the list of unfortunate firsts…our first bout of child-with-stomach-flu. I now feel even more bonded with parents throughout the universe.

Here’s hoping for a better tomorrow.

  1. Never fun when the stomach bug invades your house! Good luck catching up on the laundry. I enjoyed your post of unfortunate firsts too!

  2. Oh, stomach flu…awful! I’m so sorry and I hope Simon feels better quickly! Sometimes I think the ER knows us by our first names! 🙂

  3. As my mother told me the first time my oldest threw up on me during the stomach bug…”Now you are offically a Mother.” Hope it doesn’t last long.
