I'm On A Mission

To clean the whole house in hopes to wipe out every germ that is still lurking around here.

I've been in the Dr's office or Urgent Care 5 times in the past 6 days. The girls have been really sick, especially the babes.

2 have croup, 1 has strep, and 1 has both. My poor little ladies. Ella is the only one who hasn't caught anything (knock on wood!!).

After I left the Dr's office today, I took the younger 4 to Target to fill 2 more prescriptions and to pick up an extra humidifier. I didn't want to go in because Kinley and Raya were feeling so bad, but I had to, they needed the prescriptions. They all actually did pretty good, I gave them some crackers and let them look at some toys while we waited for our medicine.

But then Raya threw up. In the middle of Target. And I think I heard a muffled "she sure has her hands full" sweep across the onlookers who were standing there watching.

Oh well. I like having my hands full, it's our way of life :). I just like it better when my loves are healthy!

So anyway, needless to say, I have a lot of disinfecting to do around here. And I have some little girls to hold and rock till they feel better.

Here's hoping everyone starts to get better soon, and I can start playing catch up on everything!

Poor little girlies! I hate when they're sick!

Don't you love comments from strangers about your "hands being full?" I always wonder if people mean it in a negative manner!?!

I hope everyone gets better really soon! For their sake (and yours!)

Awh, I hope they get better soon! It's no fun having sick kids :( Except for when they lay around and don't cause trouble for a few hours... did I say that outloud?

Have you announced your boy name yet? I'm so curious at what you picked!

Oh goodness! It's great to have your hands full but not so much when your babes are sick. Sending up prayers that everyone gets on the mend soon and Ella stays well.
Take care.
