just when i'm starting to be able to kiss my little sweeties again....they turn on me.
i'm pretty much regretting those kisses.

i heard neiko crying in his crib around 1am last night.  i assumed he was cold or something. so i went into his room and reached my hands into his crib to cover him up, and my hands landed in his dinner.  sooooo gross.  so i had to bathe him and strip his bed.  and work around the chunks of food suck in his hair and to his clothes and bedding.
and they don't go down the drain in the bathtub- or the washer.

i finally got everything cleaned up, changed my puke covered clothes, and climbed back into bed.
only to repeat the process 2 more times.

and then i woke up this morning to a sick tekoa.  she puked once and pooped in her pants.

oh the laundry for today.  sigh.

but at least i am finally getting some of my energy back.  and my appetite.  just still waiting to be able to take a full breath without doubling over in a fit of coughing.  and waiting to get my voice back so i can practice for a performance i have coming up on the 30th.....yikes!

and with thanksgiving only 2 days away i am hoping and praying that today is our very last day of sickness!! neiko seems fine now, he is eating and running around and teasing the girls and getting into things.....
and tekoa says she's feeling a little better too, so say a prayer!!

especially cause i'm lined up to have the Gilberts kids tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday while LaKisha is at work.  and i've never had all 4 of them plus all 5 of mine.
i'm gearing up to be a mother for 9 for 3 days.....ages 3 mos to 12 years.....
with God all things are possible, right??? :)
and dave and i will be bringing all 9 to the kellenberger thanksgiving on friday......should be interesting for sure :)

and now for the things i am most especially thankful for this year-

1.  my keurig coffee maker.  mornings like this morning are much easier to get through when you have delicious, piping hot coffee ready in 1 minute.  my early birthday present from dave. :)
2.  my van.  cause i have seen up close what life is like for a mother with out one!
3.  family.  who will let you through the door at thanksgiving with 9 kids.  and who will tell ya straight how awful you look when you are sick.
4.  my teammate. who is especially thankful to have his wife back.  i'm SURE it's cause he missed me.  has probably nothing to do with desperately wanting the housekeeper/chef/maid/nanny position filled again, right?
5.  my Father.  in whom i can bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, and endure all things.
even a little puke.  :)

  1. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but according to the Sceggels this sickness will go thru your whole family...very contagious and very short incubation period. It's really bad.
