Unwelcomed Guest...

It has been a really loooonnnnnggg week at our household.  Some unwelcome guest decided to drop in on us!  Those of us that live here have decided not to be a gracious host.  We haven't offered  any accommodations to our guest, but that doesn't bother him at all.  He makes himself at home.  He latches on to whoever he can and makes his presence at our house very well known.  We have tried to drug him to get him to go away and sometimes he does leave {only for an hour or two}.  He tends to make my children very grouchy.  He also causes my children pain and discomfort.  I hate seeing my precious babies uncomfortable.  Mr. Cold/Flu/Influenza/Viral/Crud or whoever he thinks he is is no longer welcome here.  And that is in order so leave now....pretty please!!!!

Needless to say I have been playing Nurse to my kids this week.  We have been through five boxes of kleenex.  I lost count on the bottles of fever reducer and cough syrup.  My digital thermometer has been in overdrive because the kids want there temperature taken every 22 minutes to see if they got rid of the unwanted guest.

They are miserable and I try to cheer them up however I can.  I bought them blue gatorade {because that is their favorite} and ramen noodles {my kids think they are some sort of luxury}.  I also left a note in their bathroom the other day that said "Mom ♥'s U" hoping to brighten their "sick" days.

When I went to my bathroom I found this.

And my heart melted and I gave them {{{hugs}}} and kisses!!!!  It made my day!!!

  1. One hope you all feel better soon! Two that is SO sweet the note you got back! Three CM loves ramen noodles too. Makes a mom feel kind of guilty when a kid profusely thanks you for something that is so ridiculously easy to prepare!
