Oy!

The title sums it all up. What a day! After Shawn and I battled a stomach virus the last two days, the kids all succumbed today. They fought the good fight, but alas, were no match against the wee little germies (imagine that in a Scottish accent). We won't go into all the gritty details, but imagine doing piles of laundry, scrubbing stains out of the bedroom carpet (don't even go there), and a weak, exhausted, running on 4-hours of sleep mommy (not to mention the tired daddy who had to get some work done today after skipping out the last couple of days).

My positive outlook is that I've had lots of time today to snuggle on the bed with Jamie and watch "Toy Story," snuggle on the couch with Clare and read lots of Elmo books, and snuggle in the glider with Simon rocking him to sleep.

I love to cuddle with the sick wee ones, or as Avery says, "cuggle."
Hope you get some rest soon.
