How short-lived. Thursday night? Amina got sick, too. It was kind of inevitable!
Then on Friday afternoon I realized that the girls had only had a cold virus up until now -- their bouts with the flu were only beginning.
After having been out of the office for most of the month due to his business trip and illness, Chris had to go to work... And I was on my own dealing with sick kids who caused MUCH laundry, also cleaning as much as possible to try to combat the germs... Their fevers made the girls miserable, so we did get to snuggle a lot.
OH, HOW I WISH WE ALREADY HAD SEASONS 3 THROUGH 5 OF THE BRADY BUNCH!!!!
I do, however, highly recommend a movie I picked up at Target: Ballet Shoes, based on the award-winning children's book by Noel Streatfield. It stars Emma Watson and we all really enjoyed it. It's rated PG, basically because it wouldn't be of interest to kids younger than 8 (because of having an older sister, Natalia is interested in such things sooner).
Miraculously, we're all doing a bit better this morning... I almost wish I could slip the girls a sedative!
