On Christmas eve night my 5 year old woke up vomiting, as soon as it started my husband and I just gave each other the look. You see, 2 years ago on Christmas eve night Robin started vomiting then within 48 hours it spread to all of us and was one of the worst stomach bugs I had ever seen it was BAD my husband was laying on the floor unable to move shaking, I had passed out. It was bad. So as soon as this started we feared the worst. Luckily it only spread to my 3 and 5 year old. My poor 3 year old would not stop chugging water and was throwing up and dry heaving at least once an hour for 30 hours. The bug ended up lasting 7 days in both kids....Duh!
On Christmas Eve day before anyone was sick I took the kids to go see Wreck It Ralph I even bought popcorn and soda which I never do because of the icky ingredients but it was a special day so I did and the kids were overjoyed!
I worked on my goals for 2013 you can read all about it here ,as well as read about how well I did on last years goals.
I planned on spending time redoing Falcon's school priorities, cleaning and de-cluttering school stuff and packing away Christmas decor. Instead I laid around for 7 days rubbing bellies, holding buckets and nursing my littles back to health while my 2 older kids played video games.Not quite what I planned but life never is!
