a sick mom on Saturday

Today was one of those days when I let the kids do pretty much whatever they wanted all day long.  Gary had to work this morning and I woke up feeling absolutely terrible.  I can't remember a day when I felt so bad.

It all started about 5:00 am when I woke up with fever.  I felt so bad I couldn't get out of bed to get Advil.  I knew it was going to be a tough day.

The kids woke up around 8:15 and I told them I felt horrible.  They decided to crawl into bed with me and I was in too much pain to argue that they shouldn't be near me.  They started begging me to get up and make them breakfast so I allowed them to eat cereal and drink Capri-Suns in my bed.  Eating in our bedrooms is a giant No-No, but desperate times call for wild behavior.

I was finally able to get up and shower at around 1:00 pm.  After 3 bowls of dry cereal in my bed the kids decided to go downstairs to make themselves some sandwiches.  I was so proud of Layla taking charge.  She could have driven the car to Wendy's and I wouldn't have cared.  I was so stinkin' sick.  I made myself eat and slowly started to feel a bit better.

Gary got home and saved me.  He was awesome, but he wasn't feeling so good himself.  Hayden brought home all these germs earlier in the week and we have slowly passed them around.  Layla started sneezing before bedtime so I am hoping she doesn't get sick too.  YUCK!  I want us to be well for Christmas.

Since the babes were so good we decided to let them open one gift as a reward for being so sweet to their ol Mom!


Layla was so excited to see this fun puppy she has been eyeballing.  Layla is such a sucker for dogs  and stuffed animals.

Daisy is right in the middle of everything the kids do.

Hayden loves his new monster truck and Daisy approves as you can see!

I am heading to bed in hopes of feeling better tomorrow.
