I did it, I flunked out. But, for good reason. Although I would have rather not. You see, yesterday both Hubby and I came down with the Norwalk Virus. The one where you hug the porcelain bowl for about 12 hours intermittently with getting your butt down fast. Yep, that one. Last time I had it I was pregnant with J.

Not having another person to take care of makes being sick very easy. Having two kids to take care of and both of us get sick with in minutes of each other (4am Sunday night) meant I had to put in an emergency call to Mom. And she came to the rescue. Thank goodness.

Not only did she take care of Apple and J, but she cleaned and did laundry while making sure Hubby and I had lots of fluid and whatever else we needed. It was the longest day, ever.

Having my Mom so close by and able to come and help out made me realize how fortunate I really am. I was sad for my older Sister in Regina yesterday, as she had been sick too, but did not have Mom around the corner to help out. There is no way I would have made it through yesterday without her.

Thanks Mom, again for coming to the rescue.

Oh boy, how great is your Mom?!

Hope you are both feeling better and that the kids do not get it

Please tell me that you have TWO bathrooms. If not, puking together in the same toilet must win the award for Best Marital Bonding Activity and you guys would win!

I'm not sure what you'd win, though.

It is so, so, SO hard being sick when you're a mom. Good thing you had help, and I hope you're all feeling better soon (and that the kids don't get it!)

Oooh...glad you're feeling better now. Nothing worse than both of you being ill with little kidlets around.

You're lucky your mother is close by to help out!

Yes you ar so lucky. There would be no way my mom would come and help us for fear she would get it. I wouldn't even ask.
Sooo sorry to hear you were so sick. I hope you feel better today.

That sucks! We got that last year, as well as our kids. Our whole house was puking and pooping like crazy. No family to help out either. It was a nightmare.
