Sick


Since Thursday evening, Amanda and I have both been sick. Normally I would welcome illness as to have a little down time, but since both of us are sick with strep and flu like symptoms, we're both miserable with no one to pamper us. Of course the kids saw this as a unique opportunity to run amok throughout the apartment.
Maya ended making playdough cookies for her brothers and Bennett, becasue he couldn't wait that long for the cookies to bake resorted to his second favorite meal, "The Little Piggy who went to Market" as well as "The Little Piggy who went to Target" (Maya's version of course). Porter has been devouring Ice cream bars, applesauce, pudding snacks and anything else he can get his grubbly little fingers on and because Amanda and I are both tag teaming taking naps, his schedule is thrown off and he keeps asking for lunch at 8 in the morning. If this keeps up, our children will form some kind of Lord of the Flies Daycare.

So sorry you guys are sick- this is running through all of our households... YUCK! That's the cutest picture of Bennett.

Oh I feel so bad for you. Isn't there a parental rule that says both parents can't be sick at the same time?? I seem to remember laying on the couch with morning sickness while you drew all over the walls with magic marker while we were house sitting! you did manage to get some great shots of the kids--seems like feet in the mouth is an inherited characteristic!

Oh No! It's misery when it's one parent...but two at the same time! Oh...I am so sorry! Please get feeling well. I wish we could bring you dinner and watch your kids! GET WELL SOON!!!

OH MY GOODNESS-- I just want to get my hands on Bennett and snuggle him. He is AdOrAbLe and more! He is just so handsome. I can't believe I am have missed watching him grow. When I see him, he will probably be afraid of me :(

Jeff says the foot in the mouth trick is a male dominant inherited trait.
