That Dang Bug Will Mess Up Your Day

Yesterday was one of those days. You know- the kind of day when you don't think you can be a mom. Much less a good one.

Two words- stomach virus.

It started at 3:30 a.m. And didn't stop for a looooong time.

When Maddie woke up, she wanted breakfast. First, it was a blueberry waffle- sorry, we're out of them. Then, she wanted a pancake- sorry, too much effort. I suggested a Pop tart. She was okay with that.

I crawled to the kitchen, looked in the cabinet, and we were out of them. I told Maddie that we were out of Pop tarts, and her response:

"Well, I guess you'll just have to make me a pancake. Just try not to throw up in it, m'kay?"

Yep- it was a long day.

I am so sorry you have been sick. I remember when I had a 2 week old and an 18 month old and I had the stomach virus and my dear husband who didn't think he could handle it anymore called Mom for help. Too bad, she was sick too. We barely made it through that one.

She is so hilarious.

And, why oh why, do stomach bugs have to hit when it's hot and sticky. It's just not fair.

Feel better!
