This should be fun!

Well, it is official, we have a house of sickies. Everyone has a vicious cold.

DJ had a rough night last night. Poor guy. With his medical condition, it is always so unnerving. Anderson is basically suffering from a runny nose, so he is in the early stages. So, we kept both boys home from preschool and DJ did not go to kindergarten this afternoon. David is at the end of the run of the cold, but I am just starting. And we are not too sure if Madigan has the cold, since she is a cranky, snotty, red-cheeked teething monster. What a wonderful family we are, sharing like this...

At bed time, we were already planning for the possibility of DJ missing school again. I was entertaining a very low key day of TV, warm drinks and cuddly comforters. When I noticed a message on the telephone.

Yep - tomorrow is our annual photo shoot. Loblaws was calling to remind us and to also ask that we come in early...they must have read that we have a 9 mth old, an almost 3 year old and an almost 4 year old set for 8 poses...pity the poor minimum wage part time grocery store clerk taking photos tomorrow!

So, now, between blowing my nose, rubbing my throbbing temple, I am picking out outfits for each child to wear. Sounds easy - but I need to hit the right mix as the boys are getting their birthday shots done, not just the Christmas shot. Oh, and did I mention that hubby has a dentist appointment at the same time we are getting the photos?

Yep, this should be fun...getting 3 cranky, sick kids to cooperate for portraits. FUN WOW!

hope y'all are feeling better soon.

we had the snot-nose-runny-booger-with-fever run through our house too. it's no fun.

I've only got one I can only imagine how horrible it is to hit a family w/ more kids. And sadly, the world doesn't stop spinning when Mommy gets sick.
...our work is never done!

Oooh...I hope things went well. I am hoping? that we are done with germs at our house for at least a week or two.
