You take the good, you take the bad...

I really thought we were getting all on the mend over here.  The twins have been done throwing up for a few days now.  We finally settled on the right meds for Caden's miserable ear infection.  We were getting there!!

And then Declan throws up in the wee hours of the morning.  And Avery follows just a few hours later.  And they continued right up until bedtime.  They are both loosely tucked in with towels and buckets...

But you know what?  I'm so thankful.  I am thankful that we are warm and cozy at home for them to be comfortable.  I am thankful it is MY OWN CARPET they're hurling on, I own it (or at least it's my mortgage on it, lol) and I don't have to worry about stains.  I am thankful that they waited until we were home from our trip to deluge the home with illness because really, who wants to be sick away from home?  I am thankful, that's what I feel overall.  Thankful.

What great blessings!
May the stomach bug quickly get bored and go away! You probably already do this, but eating yogurt once or twice a week really cuts down on the severity of stomach ailments.
Also, when stomach bug is around, put the kids to sleep with bath towels under their heads and a big bowl(bucket, trash can) close by.
