I'm not sure, but it may be safe to say that K's better. After 2 1/2 days of being puked on 10-12 times a day, she seems to be feeling pretty good. She had a fever in the 101's (underarm) all of Friday and part of Saturday. The last puke, which in comparison to what I've been dealing with could hardly be considered a puke, was yesterday afternoon. Before that, it was 1am. So, more than 12 hours since the last mini-puke, even. I can't count the number of load of laundry that I've done. Hubby knew "the sound" and would ask if I needed one towel or two, then he would go get new pajamas for both K and me. Sometimes I was wet down to the underwear.

Mom always told us growing up to "put the best construction on everything." In that light, it could have been worse. She could be a toddler who eats regular food instead of just breastmilk. That would be much worse to clean up.

Fortunately, she was feeling better yesterday and Daddy was home to juggle childcare/sick wife care/food making/cleanup/laundry. OK, strike the last two, but the first three are the important ones anyway. :) Yesterday, I woke with a low grade fever and a sore throat. Nothing major, but definitely achey. I took a nap in the morning on the couch and then a late afternoon nap in bed. By myself. Can I tell you how lovely that was?? This morning, I'm much better. About 90%, I'd say.

Thank goodness.

I think that she said it tonight. Granted, she was complaining, but I heard it and so did DH! So sweet!

when was the last time that you cleaned your monitor screen?
~~Mine has fingerprints all over it. If I have the blinds open across the room during the day, it makes it really hard to read anything. frustrating.

When did you last clean your bathroom?
~~Hmmm....when I have to think about it, it's probably been too long, huh?

How 'bout your microwave....when was the last time that you cleaned that?
~~My mom cleaned mine for me about 2 weeks ago. It's fabulous having it all shiny again.

How often do you wash your hair? (Be honest now!)
~~Honestly, about 3, maybe 4 times a week. It's better for your hair that way, you don't strip off all the natural oils and make it all dried out and unhealthy. That's what I tell myself, anyway. (It's really because that's how often I take a shower. I know, I'm bad. It's a mom thing, though. I have WAY better ways to spend my time.)

new project

My "baby page" is doing something called Day in the life of.... I'm next up, so yesterday was our day. I had a slow start, missing a couple pictures that I really wanted in there, but oh well. Despite that, I took more than 250 pictures yesterday. Some of them are multiples of the same thing, but mostly I would just do one click and move on. I guess we had a busy day. I'm just loading all of them off the card onto the computer to start looking through. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

K was playing peek-a-boo with Daddy. SHE was doing it--lifting her arms to cover her face, then moving them down. It was really adorable. I didn't know who was having more fun with it--K or Daddy.

Here's a challenge for you

OK, go try this game.

It's enough to drive me batty.


Recently, when B asks if she can have chocolate milk, or water, or more food, Hubby has been being a stinker and saying, "no, I think the whole world is out of (fill in the blank.)" B and I always laugh about Daddy being silly.

Tonight, he started doing that during dinner and I was telling B that Daddy was being ornery. She thought it was hilarious to call Daddy ornery! *grin*

A few minutes later, I was recounting a story to DH about B and her cousin Clara.

When Clara was over the other day, she and B were playing in the family room. Clara was tired and started whining and asking for her mommy. B said, "No, that's my Mommy, her name Anna."

Hubby and I were laughing at how smart B was. B watched, quite pleased with herself. Then she proceeded to point to me and say:
B--B (pointing to herself.)

Little stinker!

(We did tell her that Kayleigh wasn't a mommy....)
