Bucket, my friend

Oh for crying out loud...

Viral gastroenteritis. Emphasis on the word viral, meaning: now it's me, too. I'm down, The Kid isn't out of it yet, and The Man is having to stay home with all of us. Ever tried taking care of a (sick) toddler and a breastfeeding baby whilst walking around with a bucket?

God bless The Man. If he weren't such a great guy, I'd be having a meltdown by now, but he is, so we're good.

Talking of good: it was snowing up here yesterday, but today they're forecasting 19 degrees Celsius. It's like one of those old Robin Williams stand-up comedies where the spring hasn't made up its mind yet and the flowers are going, I'm in, I'm out!, I'm in, I'm out!

  1. Been there with my eldest when he was 3 months old. I got cryptosperidium so not viral but the same end result with the vomiting etc. Luckily I was the only one in the house, but it was about a week and a half of it while trying to feed a hungry baby; not fun. Hope yours is all over and done with today and you're feeling better.
