Knowing that the start of your day is around the corner, you do your best to enjoy the spare minutes of quiet. Sleep is the fuel you need to combat the sickness your children have so generously shared with one another. Each morning you wake, wondering if you're its next victim or if you're strong enough to avoid it. As your thoughts continue to race, you've accepted that your totally awake now; even though your body appears to be asleep.
With a house full of sick children (two on the mend, one in the thick of it), the day promises to be tiring, repetitive and at times demanding. But you know, if you're lucky, you can squeeze in a moment of fun in between the moments of crazy.
"Who are you calling crazy?"
For all the begging and pleading that was done that we carve pumpkins THAT NIGHT (according to Eliza, the urgency of the activity was a matter of life and death!), I found it humorous that the only one courageous enough to play with the pumpkin guts was Lottie. She thought it was fabulous. But you don't have to take my word for it!
