True to form

It's Monday morning and the flu is in our house. This time I am the lucky winner.

Taking care of two little ones while you're sick = exactly as fun as it sounds.

I think they sense my weakness today, because they're starting to join forces and conspire against me. Luckily I mustered just enough energy to walk the ring leader to time out.

When I returned to the littlest troublemaker who was yelling at the top of her lungs at no one in particular, I said gently "Sweetie, we don't yell...", and I could have sworn she gave me a dirty look! She looked up at me after quieting down, and held my gaze as she slowly turned her head away, dead serious. Oh my gosh. Hysterical.

Here's to hoping for an early (and long) nap time.

You poor thing! Being sick while taking care of little ones is the pits. I was down and out yesterday with a migraine--and Maguire knew it, little stinker! Hope you feel better soon...and that your kiddos are nice to their mama!

Oh, man! It must just be a nasty Monday -- I woke up sick, too! I can TOTALLY relate! Here's hoping you get some good rest this afternoon! Thinking of you!
