I Think It's Finally Safe To Say......

The Flu Bug is gone.

I hope.

It was Saturday evening, November 3, that it entered our home. I remember every little detail.

Just kidding. That was a long time ago. I remember it was a Saturday night and I remember it was Joshua. Other than that, it's all a blur.

We finally got him back to school the following Wednesday.

Then BAM! Thursday night at 10:15, it was Alex.

It's weird to say but even a child's personality shines through in their ability to vomit. In an effort to not be so graphic, I will just say one word, "Everywhere." You name it, it was on it.

OK, never mind. I'll be graphic. Walls, sheets, comforter, pillow pet, another kid, the bathroom, down the stairs, in her hair. You get the idea.

At this point I forgot how long it took for one kid to get better and the next one to get sick. I want to say it was the following Tuesday night that Isaac came down with it.

Amanda insisted she had a force field around her and I was being a germ-a-phobe (how do you spell that?) I cleaned it all up and washed a million sheets but tried to stay far away from all my children. Everyone was under strict instructions to not touch anyone else's cup or food regardless of who had it already.

We thought we were going to be in the clear for Thanksgiving but there was one person that I don't think was as much of a germ-a-phobe as I was.

Yep, Tuesday night before Thanksgiving Brad got it. And he got it the worst! He had a vacation day all planned but spent it in bed. Once again, I stayed far away! He spent his Thanksgiving Day laying on the couch recovering after a day and a half of pure torture!

Well, now it's been a week and a half and neither Amanda or I have come down with it. We both had small touches of not feeling good but we never came down with the full fledged flu.

Now that you've had that fun fascinating details of our sicknesses, here is what else has been happening.

A little boy lost his first 2 teeth. It's hard to tell because his new ones had already come in behind but he lost both of his bottom teeth. Unfortunately the tooth fairy forgot to come when he lost the first one but the second one, she was all over that and made it on the first night but almost got caught!

When I look at his teeth, I think one word......BRACES! Can't wait for that!

They've been a little suspicious if the tooth fairy is real or not ever since a friend told them it's their mom. They've asked me several times and I make sure that I don't lie to them. I simply ask them what they think and they decide she is real. After all she gives them money.

Then there is this little boy. He keeps losing teeth but they never seem to want to come in. He lost both of his front teeth last January and the 2nd one finally popped through about a week ago. He currently has another one loose.

Can you tell he wasn't too happy about having his picture taken? This was the best I could get.
