The sickness

One after another the boys all started throwing up and being just generally miserable. Last night was day 5 of the sickness, with 2 out of 3 kids unable to make it to a proper spot to barf. I didn't think I could take another minute of it, and then today I'm home alone with the sickies until 7 pm. But... it wasn't as bad as I thought. I actually had a great day with them, going nowhere, just laying low and doing little things I need to do. My Creature has been just pure sweetness all day, so kind and adorable. I needed this little break, I'm sorry that they've been so sick, but it was kind of fun in a weird way.

About Me

My photo
I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
