Whew, Thank Goodness That's Over

We are flu-free.

Looking back, I would say that there were two highlights from the mostly unpleasant bout with this stomach virus. First, Eleanor totally gets the concept of recognizing the feeling that you are going to throw up and using a bucket. This is huge -- it saves having to hop in the bath tub, wash the sheets and scrub the carpet every time a kid gets sick.

Plus, I can also highly recommend the "my kids have the stomach flu and I could not possibly think of eating anything" diet. This experience seriously curbed my appetite.

So it is a new week now -- one that is hopefully full of healthy kids and warmer weather.

Glad you're feeling better!

I remember when my daughter learned to ask for a bucket. It almost makes the experience bearable. Almost.
