Family Fridays: Sick Boys

No pictures for this post, and you'll thank me for it. The boys caught some sort of stomach bug this week. Aaron threw up a miniscule amount twice on Monday and then has has mild diarrhea since. Andrew was fine until yesterday and then threw up all day long. It was one of those days where I went from holding sick baby, to cleaning up throw up, to wiping the toddler who still has diarrhea, to starting some laundry, and then repeating. No, this was not my most fun day ever.

However, these days have been so few and far between for me that it is making me stop and count my blessings at the same time.
  • Generally, we all have been blessed with remarkably good health.
  • The boys are healthy enough that a minor illness like this doesn't seem to affect them much at all in the long run.
  • I'm really appreciating our all hard floors in this house right now.
  • So thankful for a washing machine to wash dirty laundry.
  • This week has been warm and sunny, making laundry dry fast and our water nice and hot for bathing and washing.
  • We aren't moving, traveling, visiting, or required to be any where right now that would make this illness more bothersome.
  • Walmart sells real Gatorade here.
  • The sweet sick baby cuddles and says, "hug, mama, hug, mama."
And today I am so thankful that both boys seem to be doing better. Baby's fever broke today and no more puking. Stopped by a friend's house briefly, and she had real chocolate stuffed Oreos for the boys, and both ate some with no ill effects.
