Under The Weather X 2

And definitely twice as much work. They've been getting sick since last Thursday, but I was certain they'd knock the cold like they always do. They've got amazing immune systems. But when it took down Mema, and then Mommy, and then me, I knew we were in for a doozy.

So, we weathered a couple of days of pretty scary temperatures, lots of coughing and sneezing, a ton of nasty body fluids, and even a moment or two of projectile vomiting. But it looks like we may have made it through. Although they had to skip school today for the first time, they seemed to enjoy the beck-and-call attention and the non-stop videos while lying on a palette in the living room all day long.

By this evening, Chago had already gone into timeout twice and lost his alligator to the "garbage". Saia was making herself cough so that she could get a teaspoonful of honey. And both were taking turns beating each other with the thermometer and the nasal saline solution. I'd say they're all better now.
