Going unplugged.

I now have all 3 kids sick at home.

So, in order to play nurse maid and do some housekeeping, I will be signing off today...at least until later tonight when reinforcements come in.

But before I go I'll leave you with a few things I've learned these past few days...

1) You really should think twice before you leave your youngest almost 2 year old Monster unsupervised for more than 5 minutes 5 SECONDS because if there is any semi-edible food leftover in the top of the trashcan, he WILL find it. Remember when this happened? Well, this morning it was leftover McDonald french fries from yesterday and he found them, took them to his little carpet picnic in the living room and was munchin' away before I found him.

You would think I would have learned by now.

2) Just because your 7 year old has a 103.5 temp. does NOT mean that he doesn't have the energy to still fight with and irritate his younger sister.

3) It is inevitable that the moment you decide to write a post about the evils of cold cereal and your current ban on them, your supportive other half (who hasn't read your blog for awhile) will decide to insist that you buy some cold cereal to have on hand, and thus unknowingly make you out to be a liar. (and he thought it quite funny!) I did refrain from buying the Cheerios (ahem, Whimzie!), and instead went with the more expensive Organic variety that is half-filled with air and is gone in 2 days. Strategy, I tell you. Strategy.:) Because I also stocked up on Steel Cut Oats and the ingredients to make healthy muffins, granola bars, and the like...

4) I really should retake English Grammar because my punctuation is all over the place.

5) One more reason to not judge. Thanks CarpoolQueen! ...for making me a goose-bumped, lump-in-my-throat mess.

I am praying the kids feel up to their "normal" selves again and that you will have the strength to take care of them and not get sick yourself! Hang in there!

That Susan Boyle is something else! I've watched it a couple times already! I'll have to get a lock for our garbage can I think! ;-)

I hope your kids feel better soon!!
I don't know how you are managing without cold cereal in the house! It makes my life so much easier :)

Hey Chickie! Sorry to hear that your little ones are sick. Hopefully everyone's back to quasi-normal.

Sickness? Yuck! I hope it's the kind that leaves quickly!

So, all those healthy hot breakfasts and your kids ended up sick anyway. Hmmm.... ;)
