It's the illnesses that make parenting worthwhile...

So, we're sick again. All four of us. Some sort of tummy thing. I'm guessing it was something we ate, because it really hit us all at almost exactly the same time. (For regular diseases, there's usually a staggered progression: one of us will come down with it, then another, then another...)

It's not the worst thing we've had, but it's plenty unpleasant and I'm more than ready for it to go away.

This particular round of illness has left me with a question, though. Why is it that the more tired (and sick) children are, the more they fight against actually going to sleep? Seriously. I'd think it would be the other way around, but no...

Anyway, blogging may be a bit erratic until I get my guts my feet under me again.


  1. You've broken the strikethrough.

  2. ...Which is precisely what I get for trying to type while I'm sick. Thanks, though - it's fixed now (obviously).

  3. Sickness is part of a child's growth. Makes them learn a whole lot of things.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
