Remember this post?

Where I bragged about how rarely our kids get sick?

They are now. Carter was briefly Sunday night. He begged to go to school on Monday (who does this?), but I kept him home just in case.

Jack was grumpier than his usual grumpy self at Holly's last night and then started throwing up when he got home. Lainey, at 11:30pm. No school today, just in case.

I'm not entirely sure these are legitimate illnesses or if Blake fed them Castor oil to prove his point of my "jinxing" them.

What do you think? Please vote on the poll......on the sidebar to the right of this post.

Let's settle this once and for all!

Haha, I love that you made a poll. I totally just voted Blake, haha!! Hope the kiddos get LOTS better. My Nick Nick has been out of school all week fighting the flu! No school for him today or tomorrow for "just in case" reasons also!!

Figures huh? I just wrote how Sophia had an earache on Sunday (she was crying in pain) - fine Monday morning then earache that afternoon - 1 1/2 hrs at the Dr. and he says she is fine. Then yesterday she pukes at school and is fine when she gets home! Good luck with yours - hope it goes away quickly!

I was thinking the same thoughts as cindy!

You are so losing on your poll...Ha Ha HAHAHAH!

Shannon said...

You already know my thoughts on my kids and being sick. The more my kids are sick, the less I understand Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy.

Hope yours get better fast-like.

Poor babies! Hope they feel better soon!!!

I'm totally blaming Blake. Sounds like something a man would do.

I hope they get better soon. The good news is Castor Oil should pass quickly.

Jodee said...

Oh my goodness! I am cracking up because we are in the same "sick" boat here too and hadn't been to the pediatrician since last summer! We both jinxed ourselves. :(

Kelly Beatty said...

a) where do you even buy castor oil? Did you have some left over from your little house on the prairie days in Kansas? b) what the heck is that supposed to do?

Ask Blake, Kel. He's the one who bought it.

Merry Mack said...

This is how it always works.

Feel better.

I place blame with the fish.

Please keep your computer screen cleaned just in case I may catch something. I am NO FUN when I'm sick.

Oh dear. All sorts of things have been going around over here. everyone has people out sick (not as bad as schools shutting down due to mass amounts of the flu), but everyone has something different! Today was the first day this month that I woke up and felt great. Sophie and I have been back and forth with our own share of infections and colds.

I voted for Blake only because his name was first and he told you that you were going to shoot yourself in the foot. I was going to vote for all three, but I soon learned that meant I would have to change each vote. Sorry Blake! Don't hold it against me. I'm just an idiot.

Hopefully everyone is well soon and Blake doesn't have to leave you alone the whole time. Get well!!

It is never fun to have sick kids!! I am laughing so hard because this sounds like something that would happen to me!

Hope everyone is feeling better soon & you find that Castor Oil so you can toss it quick!

True story:
I wanted to get out of a lunch date, called and flaked by saying, "the school called, TM has a fever."

Guess who called telling me TM had a fever 2 hrs. later.

Your fault. Sorry.

FireMom said...

Both of my kids are sick, too. When I called my ped just to check on things, the nurse said it's ravaging our area. LB's class normally has 16 kids. There were 6 on Monday. SIX.

Feel better soon!

I voted for the fish. Sorry, I don't do very well with anonymous stuff.

But really, what child begs to go to school? Carter must have been SO sick that he didn't know what he was saying. That is truly the only logical explanation behind it.

I hope everyone is feeling better. And if not, I'm really, really sorry. Having a house full of sickness is NO walk in the park.
