Gettin' Puked On...{Oh, The Glamorous Life of a Mom!}

Man oh man, we've had the sick bugs at our house this week, and they have been yucky! I don't think I've ever done so much laundry in the span of a few days or have changed clothes (the boys and my own) so many times on a daily basis. Johnathan, who got sick Wednesday with a stomach bug, is finally on the mend. Little Eli though is still in the middle of it...with a sinus infection though...he somehow skipped the stomach bug, but has been throwing up frequently regardless from all the coughing and gagging on the nasty phlegm (otherwise known as "flem" haha, thanks Dad) in his throat. Gross, I know, but I'm just keepin' it real! ;)

It's funny, when Johnathan got sick I was thinking to myself how I had never been thrown up on (besides baby spit up) by my own kids. When I was a nanny years ago I was fully initiated into the Yuck Club by getting puked on and peed on and snotted on by the two little boys I watched. Well, after this past week/weekend I have been reinstated into the Yuck Club by my own dear children, and believe me, it's just as gross when your own kids throw up on you as when other kids do. It's all bad.

On a brighter, less nauseating note...I have been incredibly thankful for our boys' good health even though they're sick. Recently I have become more aware of just how good we really do have it. Sure, our little dudes catch the occasional bug and are prone to allergies, but really, it's not that bad. I know they're going to get better, and I am very grateful that they are overall very healthy little dudes. So even when I'm cleaning up another "mess" and throwing another load of laundry in the wash I'm still thankful for the good health that our boys usually enjoy. That is such a blessing!

This week is off to a rough start, but I am sure that it can only get better! Sometimes the good thing about being at the bottom is there is only one way to go...and that is up! ;)

Happy Monday!

Gross. Nothing like my Grace at "keepin' it real."

nasty flem = nastier phlegm

Haha! For future reference, thought I'd hurl up the more disgusting looking, though nonetheless accurate spelling. ;)

Praying for you all,

Dad

Well, I'm not going to say I really envy you right now, but though your outside clothing may be all yucky, your heart is beautiful. Good outlook sis!

Love you so much! Hope Eli is better soon!
