and the parenting award goes to...

As puke-a-palooza continues (but we have been vomit free since 7 AM this morning (there is hope) I am ashamed to report the following.

Since Monday my children have:
  • not had any milk
  • not had any juice
  • not had any vegetables
  • have had minimal fruits, but most of that ended up in a bucket
  • watched more TV in the past 4 days than they have in the past 4 months
  • not been outside (but I do open their windows wide during the day to air out germs)
  • had at least 5 bed sheet changes (cleaning and germ prevention)
  • rec'd two new toothbrushes (again, with the germs)

Since Monday I have :
  • not had near enough sleep
  • eaten take out three nights in a row
  • missed half of my favourite TV shows
  • been wearing sweats
  • many overdue library items

Stellar week, dontcha think?

I think survival for the little ones as well as the parents is all you can ask for during those weeks. I think you need a hearty pat on the back.

A hearty, non-vomit inducing pat on the back.

Whew, what a week you've had!

You didn't post it, but I bet your babies got lots of lovin' and comfort, from their tired sweatpants' wearin' Mommy.

Still crossing my fingers that you don't catch it next!

I have to agree with TwinMom, it can only get better from here.

Kudos to you for hanging in. I would be crying by now, for sure.

You definitely deserve an award in my books, Nancy! Truly a super-mom!

It's all about holding it together - even if that's in a non-nutritious, grungy, sleep-deprived way!

Hope everyone is feeling better!

The fact you haven't been institutionalized is remarkable. How you haven't managed to lose your mind I do not know. You deserve major kudos for being an awesome mom.
