Poor Sweetie!~

Our poor 3 yo is S-I-C-K

I was finishing up my workout last night at around 10:30 p.m. (Yesterday was a tad busy!) when two of my dds rush into the room to tell me our 3 yo had just thrown up. They told me they would take care of him. I got off my stepper and tried to mop off all of that icky sweat (EWW!) as quickly as I could. Before I could say "Jiminy Cricket!" they had him bathed and resting comfortably on the couch with his favorite orange shirt on (the one with the pocket- you know how kiddies love pockets), his favorite monkey stuffed animal, his favorite baby doll, his beanie Clifford, a sippy cup of Ice Ouha (water), books, and his Captain Feathersword.

I think I may need to pray for his future wife. She is going to have a man who is used to being pampered :o).

I am blessed to have such sweet dds!

Poor little one was up most of the night with coughing and fever. Praying for a quick recovery as we are leaving in less than 48 hours!!

Oh, and in case you are wondering what dh was doing during all of this he was fixing a leak in his radiator (Yes, at 10:30 at night). It's been quite the happening week!

Wow!! What great big sisters!

We'll keep your little guy, your husband's radiator and your upcoming travels in our prayers.

Poor darling, he is blessed with such attention. Tell dh that my dh was up to 8pm getting a flat fixed on my 'burb when he needed to be up in 6 hrs (2am) to catch a flight out by 6am in another city. Something like this always happens when you least need it!

I'm sure your dds will nurse every one of the men back to good health if need be when you are gone. :)
