My husband put on his Facebook post, “HOW TO: Have four sick kids at once. 1) Have four kids. 2) Have one of the four kids be sick. 3) Mix well on a snow day.” The next day, naturally, he had to post a “how to have a sick dad.” The positive side is that at least the kids haven’t missed the whole week due to sickness, and there may be a snow day tomorrow as well.
As mothers, there’s a sickness regimen I think we develop for ourselves. Healthy food, limit sugar, lots of tea/water, naps, clean/disinfect. Perhaps the universe is reminding me that this is of utmost importance in our daily round, not just when the kids are sick. I say this because my focus this week has been on being productive and taking my “work” seriously.
Fortunately, I have the time to spend with my family. We are here together and somehow seem to have the means to provide, thanks be to God. As I strive to check items off my list today, I’ll try to remember what will help keep us healthy individually and as a family.
I’m just sad it’s too cold outside to play! We may have to make an exception to the sugar rule for some homemade cookies. 🙂
