The Sick

 This has been one of the worst Winters for sickness. And not just for us. Almost everyone I know has kids who've been perpetually sick.  If it wasn't puking, it was mysterious rashes, pneumonia, Hand, Foot and Mouth, colds, coughs, fevers, Bronchitis, Strep, etc etc etc.

Fortunately for us, we haven't had it as bad as all that. Libby did get HFM right after Christmas but that was more of a relief since she is my last kid to get it. Done and done.

But in the last month our kids one at a time have fallen victim to a puking bug.  And finally, we're passing the flu (pretty sure that's what this is) around. Right now it's poor Anna. We're on day 3 of a fever and just for extra fun, today she lost her voice.  Poor thing.
 She's been pretty miserable. But you need to understand that Anna is my only cuddly child. So, all she wants is to be held. Obviously, I can't do that, but I've tried to acquiesce as much as possible. Also, it's 80 degrees here and holding a child who is running a 103.3 temperature makes things a little... uh... sweaty.
But sickness aside, isn't she beautiful? Don't you just want to kiss those luscious lips? Okay, maybe after she's done being sick.
