Sickos in the house

You know how you know time stands still? When you can't gauge it.  For example, you look at the time and it is 3pm.  And you think IT'S 3 PM ALREADY??!!  How can that be, I just woke up?And the next second you think, IT'S ONLY 3 PM??!!?   I am ready for bed!!

Yeah.  Both my children are sick.  The kind of sick that even though Tylen@l helps keep their fever down, it never goes down enough.  The kind that makes your knees weak and your head feel like a cottonball full of rocks.  The kind of sick that doesn't let you eat.  Mostly because you are sleeping; but even when you wake up you still don't want to eat.  The kind of sick that makes this momma stare at them while they sleep because there is not too much I can do.  Well, I pray, and pray, and then pray some more.

The kind of sick that makes time stand still.

Of course, today is their pediatrician's day off.  So I did the next best thing.

I called my mom.

And she promptly went about making her best jewish-grandmother chicken soup.   My dad just dropped it off and I am not kidding, BOTH kids got up and ate it!!

But why am I surprised?

Granted, they both went back to sleep after they finished it, but at least they ate something.  Something good for sick babies.

So, as time stands still, I pray that I don't get as sick as they feel, though I am definitely battling something.

Chicken soup is the BEST medicine. Made by grandma is the icing on the cake. I'm telling you, I even eat chicken soup when I am sick and I don't eat meat :)

Praying they will perk up very soon.

Oh the soup sounds FABULOUS.

So sorry for your sweet sick kiddos. That's so bad! Lucy hasn't been quite that down-and-out...but barfing on the floor half a dozen times is enough for me, ya know?

Time is standing still here too. And zooming by all at the same...time. As I sit here on my computer, all the things I failed to accomplish today are flashing before my eyes.

And yes, please sign me up to be a member of O/UAUMWDBOIC. Do I get some sort of card to carry with me...and maybe a t-shirt of some sort? Bumper sticker?

You TOTALLY cracked me up with your comment on my blog. I think we're both feeling a little punchy.

Have a great evening!!
