A Little Under.



It's Martin Luther King Day and we are celebrating. With the flu. At four in the morning we had the older girls both in our bed, I fetched the throw up bowl and Daddy cleaned up. As I rested my hand on the hot skin of her back, I told Grace, "It will all be over soon"! She didn't believe me so I told stories about baby goats, rivers, and Raspberry Pie. It seemed to help a little. Now we all wait with breath drawn in to see who gets the pukes next.
Happy Day, MLK! Happy Day.

I was just singing my blues thinking what a yucky day my day off has been going from one room to the next cleaning.

Once again I realize it can always be worse. Let me know if you need anything, anything at all! Hugs & kisses with lots of well wishes!

I'm sorry that your holiday was spent looking at puke. On a positive your story about baby goats, rivers and raspberry pie sounds so cute.

Hope your all feeling better soon. xo

Ick. What a way to spend the day. Hopefully it clears out quickly! At least the kids are out of school Monday and Tuesday!

We had 2 rounds of stomach flu here in December. I feel your pain. It is so sad when your kids look at you for help, and you can't make it go away any faster.

I love the light in these pictures- so gorgeous and dreamy.
