My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

OH Fun!

Cue the music....sing along with me folks, the tune is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer...

There was retching and puking and cleaning the carpets.
washing the sheets and changing the diapers...

But the best of alll..............are the blessings I can recall.
(Ba dum dum dum)

Sick kids are very snuggly
Even those who usually aren't
Husbands are very handy
Renting carpet cleaners fast.

Bath time is lots of fun
even several times a day
it makes you smell so yummy
and washes all the sicks away.

Then there's one very big...Blessing I must share
I would up and go to work..Leaving hubby there
(he's the best!)

Now all the kids are better
Eating all the food they can
Running around like banshees
Playing hard and chasing cats!

Yup, life moves pretty fast, remember to stop and count your blessings during this busy season folks.

I guess that being a nurse you can say that you've been there and done that but it's always worse than you have to do it with your own because you feel so much worse for them. Well, at least I do!

Hope that everyone is feeling better now!

Someday you will look back on all of this and - and - or maybe you won't. But it certainly does bring back memories of sitting up at all hours of the night with my daughter because I was the one that she came to in the middle of the night, and I was the one who had to sit with her in the bathroom on those especially sick nights.

By the way, a jalousie is a an old jalopy named after an old girlfriend named Lousie. Jape is what the young fellow and Lousie were caught doing in the back of the jalopy by Lousie's father.

Can I say that here?

sorry to hear the kids were sick and glad to hear they're feeling better. it takes a lot out of the parents taking care of one sick child, let alone 3.

you are always an inspiration.

Sometimes the most precious blessings are to be found amidst the yucky parts of life. Glad you were able to find some!!
