What poison would you choose for your kid? I was personally hoping for a case of strep. At least if strep was the cause of her ridiculous fevers I could grab an antibiotic for her and we would be on our way...and she would feel better in 24 hours.
Ahhh...but my hopes could not have been more crushed.
Since sure enough four days after Abbey showed signs of some tortuous virus, Audrey followed suit.
Same fever. Same symptoms. Same sleepless night last night.
And guess what?

Meanwhile, the kids and I are spending plenty of quality time together. We have played many games, read some books, and they have spent some time 'working' next to me.
As for me, I am hanging in there. Thankful for good friends that take care of my responsibilities for me (Amy and the book fair this week) and family for sending a pick-me-up when I needed it (thanks Mom & Richard).
Just a little side note...pay no heed to the crazy lady you see creeping on your neighbor's roof this evening.
That would only be me, stringing a dozen keys along their roof.
