So this picture pretty much sums up our entire day today from 7 a.m. this morning until the girls went to bed at 6:30 this evening. The only thing you can't see is Will curled up on the floor of his office in a fetal position.
Anna Cate woke up with a tummy ache which we quickly realized (surprise!) was the dreaded stomach bug.
dun. dun. duuuunnnnn.
The three of us stayed in the den the entire day (except for my trips to the back of the house to check on Will and bring him some Gatorade and saltines every hour or so.) Anna Cate on the couch, Caroline playing with her toys, and me plugging away at our never-ending pile of laundry and working on sewing up some pants because we seem to have already grown out of the ones we bought this fall. But most of the day was spent just holding Anna Cate and rubbing her back.
When she wasn't in my lap, she spent the entire day curled up on the couch just like this.
I think she only moved twice.
Poor sweet thing. She was miserable.
Sweet thing #2 decided she wanted to try her turn at being sick as well, but it only lasted about 30 minutes when she realized being still when you feel COMPLETELY FINE is about as much fun as peeling grapes.
But we made it through today and hopefully tomorrow will be a better one.
