Sick week

It started with Adelaide. She got sick and was throwing up. But Adelaide tends to get sick more often than the rest of us, so I didn’t think too much of it. We planted her on the couch with an iPad and 7Up.

Then Kyle got sick. That’s when I knew it was serious, because Kyle doesn’t usually get sick. And when he does, he usually gets over it pretty quickly. That’s when I knew it was only a matter of time before everyone was throwing up. But I was hoping and praying that the rest of us would be spared.

August was next. Poor bub. He didn’t know how to handle throwing up and he kept trying to swallow it. Ew. But he sort of got the hang of it eventually.

Hazel was OK for a while…

But soon even Hazel got sick and was throwing up. (Fortunately she got the lightest case of us all.)

Then I got sick. It was so bad. Here I was, caring for four sick people while I’m trying to take care of myself. I got so mad at Kyle for not being very helpful, which wasn’t really fair because he was recovering. But I was literally cleaning up vomit and other bodily liquids off the floor and changing two kids’ diapers and nursing Hazel while being sick myself.

We each lost about 5 pounds.

It was perhaps the worst three or four days of my life. But we survived.

Thank you for coming to my pity party. It’s over now.

TBT: Hazel’s first trip to Disneyland

Time is getting away from me on this one. I think Kyle has some more photos on his phone or on the computer from this trip, but I’ll just post what I have for this Throwback Thursday edition of Happy All Those Things.

Grandpa Percy came for a last-minute trip to California in October, and what trip to SoCal is complete without a trip to Disneyland? (Answer: No trip to SoCal is complete without a trip to Disneyland.)

This was Hazel’s very first trip to Disneyland. She wore her Minnie Mouse outfit from Ali for the occasion. Hazel was very excited.

AND this was the first time Adelaide wore her birthday Elsa dress to Disneyland. She did her Elsa poses for us.
