The saddest sight ever

The Plague hit our house. Did it hit you? My whole family was KOed with runny noses, hacking coughs, sore throats, and other don't-get-close-to-me symptoms. The twins, who haven't napped for well over a year, took an afternoon siesta every day for two weeks.

The poor guys just couldn't make it through a whole day.

One afternoon, Harrison fell asleep in the bathtub while Cameron channeled Michael Phelps going for the gold.

I put my poor sleeping sickie to bed.

(Will it surprise you that he popped up two minutes later, energized until nearly midnight?)

Thank goodness The Plague has done its damage and is on its way out. My sympathy and goodwill run out at about 9:00 at night.

So sad. Quinton was down for a week and Quade for a little over a week. The rest of us have been really lucky.
I hope everyone feels better soon.

What a precious photo op ! Ya the "sickness" went through my house too.... Thomas got it, missed a whole week of school... Noah got it two weeks later and was down for the entire last week of his track break... luckily i never *knock on wood* got it. But i was overdosing on vit C while they both were sick! Hopefully all get better soon!

How does one fall asleep in the tub?! Too funny!

I think it's great the sympathy and goodwill faries visit your house each night to sprinkle you with special nice mommy dust for the next sympathy and goodwill usually run out Monday around 4:00pm and don't return until Saturday morning.

Very pathetic. Very sad. It must be the week of illness! Hope you all survive okay.
