Again? (Updated)

Wow, seems that we have a common theme right now. Since Beth didn’t get sick until the afternoon yesterday, Eric decided he would stay home with her today. He’s got sick days left, I don’t. He didn’t realize when he agreed that he would end up with both kids. As Alex was helping me pack his cold lunch today, he threw up again. So, no school for him. Alex was actually upset when I told him he wasn’t going to school. When I talked to Eric 10 minutes ago, both of them have been fine since I left. I guess we’ll see what the rest of the day brings.

[4:30pm update]: Neither kid threw up again all day and Beth took a good, if early, nap. Looks like they’ll both be back to their respective routines tomorrow. And Eric didn’t run out of the house screaming as soon as I walked in, so they must have been fairly well-behaved. And so far neither of us adults are sick.

  1. Hmm… Are you sure Alex even HAS school today? Menomonee Falls have the week of Thanksgiving off. Just saying 😉

  2. I’m sure your youngest sister wishes she knew how to throw up on cue to get out of going to kindergarten. It would have worked much better than saying “I can’t go to school today because I’m sick!” In a bright cheerful voice.
    On a different note, we both hope they are better, fast, so we get to see you all.

  3. Alex was supposed to have 3 days of school this week, although he was going to miss Wed because of our trip. They only had Thu & Fri off.

  4. Glad to hear that the kids had a good day, and that the adults are not sharing the stomach flu with the kids. It’s great to share, just not illness.
