Yesterday the dreaded stomach bug made an appearance at our house. I knew it was coming when dear Oliver woke up for the day, snuggled mommy for about an hour and a half without eating, and promptly went back to sleep for hours. He woke up to throw up, then slept, and repeated the cycle. Yuck!
Today he’s still not up and playing but he has been awake all morning sitting on the couch. He has kept a bit of food and drink down as well.
Now I’m left to wonder if any of the other children will be joining the ranks of sick and yucky in the next few days. I’m praying they do not.
We have done homeschool on autopilot mostly, I’m able to do a lot of reading aloud while I hold the sick one. Of course, there are the times when I’m holding the sick one, feeding the baby a bottle, and simply run out of hands to hold a book too. That’s when audio books come in handy, and children who enjoy creating things with bits of paper and stick glue.
I’m off to do some more holding, I just wanted to check in here while everyone was eating lunch!
