And so the illnesses begin...

Monday, September 20, 2010
Well, this weekend wasn't what I planned it to be.

I had plans. Big plans. I wanted to buy pumpkins, mums, and kale. I wanted to decorate for fall. I wanted to clean my entire house. OK, maybe that last one was really pushing it. But my intentions were good.

Instead, I nursed two little girls to health. When my children should be outside enjoying the last few gorgeous days of summer, they were inside, tucked in their beds with strep throat and croup.

And if it weren't bad enough that my Saturday was shot to pieces, in the wee hours of Sunday morning, I was in the Emergency Room with Harper. After spending 5 hours in the ER, I just wanted to sleep all day on Sunday.

Are my kids the only ones who are sick after just 2 weeks of school? I can't take 10 months of this. Please tell me I'm not alone.

Both of my kids had strep the first week of school and so did my sister's kids. My sister's kids actually had it again last week. It's running rampid!
