Morning came early for us today. At 5:00am I got my first child in my bed. Eric rolled out of bed and decided that getting to work early wouldn't be such a bad idea. I'm sure that it had nothing to do with the hacking, gagging child between us.LOL Believe me, if I could have gone early to work, I would have.LOL By 5:15 I had my second child in the bed. This one was hacking, gagging, and screaming. Eric left hurriedly.LOL By now, I had the song "10 in the Bed" playing over and over in my head except it was....

3 in the bed and the little one said, "I'm thirsty, I'm thirsty!"
Mom got up and got a drink.
3 in the bed and the littlest said, "A Ba-ba, A ba-ba!"
Mom rolled over and got a ba-ba.
3 in the bed and the little one said, "Cough, cough, cough. Hack, hack, hack."
Mom got up and gave her a drink.
3 in the bed and the littlest said, "Waa, waa, waa. Waa, waa, waa."
Mom stood up and rocked the child.
One in the bed and the little one said, "Gag, gag, gag! Gag, gag, gag!"
Mom ran over and grabbed said child.
One in the bed and the littlest said, "snore, snore, snore. cough, cough, cough."
Mom tiptoed out and took the other.
One on the couch and the little one said, "Why does HE get the bed?!"


So far today has not gone as planned but it's been pretty good anyway. Or maybe I'm so tired that the things that would make a day seem bad just don't trigger that thought in me.LOL Just picture an empty void where my head usually is. Speaking of vacuums... I have to say that I still love my Little Green Machine. So far I've sucked up Rootbeer and Vasoline.LOLOL Enough said.

I like how you made a fun song out of it anyway :-). so sorry to hear that sickness is still invading your home. Not fun, not fun, not fun.

Thanks gals. Sheer will-power got me through yesterday and I think we'll be making a run to the drs today. I AM choosing joy. These kids really have been good even though they must feel just awful. I'm thankful.
