Sick Peep Day

Sweet Baby Girl on the right,her best friend K on the left.

Today is Tuesday, and I have a sick peep. Sweet baby girl, 13 year old, has the flu. She woke up to it, and I got to pick it up. If your a mom, you know what I'm talking about. I knew something was strange because Blue Eyed Husband said at 6:45 this morning, "Katie needs you." It was 6:45, (in the morning, yes, I was up), but Sweet Baby Girl is NEVER up at 6:45, and she's 13, and thinks she NEVER needs me. So I knew it wasn't good. WHAT?!,I looked at Blue Eyed with a scrunched up face. And I was right. Sweet Baby Girl was coming around the corner, "I just p----." Where, I'm thinking.Before I could ask, "Right beside my bed." Yeah, thats not in the bathroom. Oh well... Being a mom, you pick up lots of p---. After awhile, it's really no big deal.

Tuesdays at our house is known as grocery/errand day. Mom gets the goods, peeps eat well when they get home from school. 16 and 18 year old were aware that their sister was sick before they went off to what they call The Stupid Place, other wise known as school. Now, I know my boys, and I can bet that they are thinking all day that I won't have time to do groceries, and the first thing they will ask as they get into the car won't be, "Hows Kate". It will go something like this, "Did you get groceries?" No boys, I haven't had time yet. "Is there anything to eat at home?" Probably not anymore than what was there when you left this morning. Thats when the grumbling from the passenger, and back seat starts. I of course give them THE EYE, which translates to them as, seriously boys, your sister is sick, remember. And just for a moment, and only a moment, with a touch of feeling in their voices so I will put THE EYE away, they say, "Oh yeah, hows Kate?"

Poor thing! I have always told my kids, please if you have to, do it in the bed. At least I can throw the comforter, blanket, etc in the washing machine, but I can't pick the carpet up and put it in the washer!!! I remember one time my daughter woke me up at around two in the morning to tell me she threw up in the bathroom and oh, "You can clean it up." I never thought anyone could miss like she did!! Hope all is well soon and no one else comes down with it.

Hope your peep is better soon. I know lots of folks coming down with this flu. They say it is hard to shake. So far, I haven't caught it. Hope you all stay well! Hugs, Kathleen

Poor Kate! Annie is her age and it always amazes me how little she is when she gets sick, being such a grown up these days LOL

I hope she feels better soon!

I know exactly what you're going through. When one of my four come down with something it usually ends up making its round to everyone. Yep. These are the great days of parenting, they won't always be with us. One day they will grow up and our homes will be quiet and we will wish they were back even if it is to do a little cleaning up after them.

Thanks for the post on my blog. She is doing much better, now she has a runny nose and watery eyes.

She's watching Dora the Explorer right now.

God bless you and yours

Awwww I hope your peep is better soon and that she doesn't share it with all of you. I LOVE your porch in the last post. I have always wanted a big, huge porch.
