My kids were sick with the flu and I had to write about it.
We all feel better today. Just want to share a little mom crazyness...and am thankful to have support and such awesome kids.

It started with Jai,

My little five year old guy.

he started feeling crummy,

then out from his tummy,

he erupted his supper.

Next was his brother.

Brayden didn't puke,

wich we thought a fluke.

With a  cough and a hack

He helped put Jai in the shower

and then in the sack.

Then it was Kaede's turn to hug the bowl.

Then soon after,

 she burrowed under cover,

like a snug little mole.

It only skipped Teya,

as far as we see...

She danced around...happily surprisingly,

germ free.

Unfortunately mom spent the last day ,

Lying on the couch...

squirming and grumbling,

an invariable grouch.

Good thing her husband had offerred to stay,

home from work...

On that horribly nauseous awful day.

Now they are better and the sun brightly shines.

chores after  boredom,

now seem a good time.

Peppermint,popsicles,soup and tea

cream-o-wheat,advil and a cuddly movie.

these and a bit of patient time,

Is what helped this chick's family feel better and fine.
