The day started out well. Alex seems back to normal.
Alex: “Look, Mama, I didn’t spit in the bucket last night.”
Me: “That’s good. Are you feeling better?”
Alex: “Yes!” <pause> “Can I have cookies today?” 😀
Alex helped me make pancakes and both kids finished theirs. Baths went well. We started watching the Packer game and had cheese and crackers for lunch. At one point we had the following conversion with Beth:
Beth (from the dining room): “Help!, Heeelllppp!”
Eric (from the parlor): “Beth, do you need help?”
Beth (from the dining room): “No” (Uh, why are you calling for help, then?)
So Beth went down for her nap at 2:00 and Alex and I finished the turkeys. Ended up taking about 45 minutes:
Beth got up from her nap around 3:30, which is, quite honestly, a little early for her. 15 minutes later she threw up. Eric took her to the bathtub while I stated cleaning up downstairs. She puked twice more while in the tub. Once more after he brought her down. And again while I was typing this paragraph! Hopefully this settles down soon. She seems to be worse off than Alex in that respect. But, like Alex, she’s perfectly happy in between. Hopefully she’ll go to bed and sleep through the worst of it. And hopefully Eric and I will avoid it, but I’m not counting on that. We might be delayed if one of us is still sick when it’s time to leave on Tuesday.
Oh well, we’ll survive and Alex and I finished the turkeys. I should probably pack tonight in case I’m sick by tomorrow. 😉
But on the bright side, we got this cute pictures of the Coppertone Baby:
(I finished typing this around 5:30pm. But I still needed to upload the photos and it was time to make dinner, so I took a little break. As of this typing, Beth threw up one more time, but hasn’t done it again in about an hour.)
