We were hit hard with some kind of flu bug this past week. As I posted a few days ago it all started Friday night and by Sunday night both kids were pale as ghosts with fevers and the whole kit.
Mommy guilt stepped in when K missed a few days of school. I know we kept her home because she was seriously not in a condition to be at school, she had no energy etc but that part of me felt bad she was missing out on her lessons. We end up reading books and pointing out her “snap words” in cases like these.
It’s hard when both kids are home and neither one feels good. They get on eachothers nerves being crabby and sick. Not fun for anyone, especially mom and dad who are hearing it ;).
Finally Friday rolls along and both kids were feeling much better. K wanted to go to school for what they call “Friday Funtubs” where at the end of the day they get to choose a toy from the “Funtubs” to play with and they are allowed to bring something in to show the class.
So, since the fever went down and she wasn’t violently coughing anymore she went to school. Unfortunately we missed when the pizza day forms went home and poor K had a meat sandwich for lunch while everyone else had pizza. Hey, at least I packed her cookies! We can thank the flu for K blaming missing pizza day on us! We did get pizza for the kids for supper but I can see why she was upset being the only kid with a lunch made by mom on pizza day. 😦
Other than that episode, it seems that nasty virus has left the building. Knock on wood.
I’m lucky, hubby and I had a couple of days where we didn’t feel 100% but not nearly as sick as the kids were.
Happy the kids are better, it’ll be easier to get things back into routine (again!) having them back to healthy.
Let’s hope this is the first and last strain of flu virus for winter 2011!
