We decided that our 2018 will start next week. This week has not gone according to plan. On Monday, it quickly became apparent that Manatee was not suffering from a jubilant NYE. And then G2 started throwing up. Suddenly instead of putting away laundry and getting ready for the week, we were piling up blankets, outfits, and everything into piles for the wash. Puke bowls scattered the house. Our standards for personal hygiene plummeted. Then G got struck down. We thought G2 was heartbreaking until G started throwing up every 20-30 minutes for 9 hours. 9. Long. Gut-wrenching. Hours. 

Our hearts broke as we watched our little girl and as we thought about parents who deal this on a much larger level. We knew this bug would pass quickly but imagination and lack of sleep left us in tears for parents whose children are fighting battles we cannot even imagine. 

We are on our way to recovery, but it sure does take a lot out of these little girls. Wash your hands. Disinfect everything. Take vitamins to boost your immune system. And if your kiddos are sick, keep them home. 

Stay healthy my friends.
