Ickity Ick Ick Ick

9 Jun


We had grand plans for this weekend. Well, at least I did. They were not such grand plans but they definitely did not include what actually transpired.

Miss H was a tad grouchy on Friday and got grouchier on Saturday. She did not want to eat anything and she did not want to go anywhere. Like, good parents, we just chalked these things up to being 4. Then, she took a nap and we knew something was up. But, we had plans to go to the neighborhood picnic and she seemed rejuvenated from her afternoon slumber.

Grandpa learned how to play cornhole.


Miss H refused to get on the trampoline. This should have been our final indication that something was wrong. It became clear there was an issue when she projectile vomited all over herself and Kerry. We quickly left the party.

Today, was a lot of laying around for me and Miss H.

Kerry and Grandpa enjoyed an early Father’s Day outing at National’s Park.

Miss H seems to be on the mend. Here is hoping that this stomach bug is over.

And, Miss S embraced the laying around today too.


Hope your weekend was less icky than ours.

Bitten by the bug

The stomach bug that is. Miss H’s day did not start off so great yesterday but by last night it had greatly improved. I will spare you all the details but she had her first bout with stomach issues. And, I am still fighting the cold that she gave me two weeks ago.

We spent a lot of yesterday watching TV, laying on the floor and eating popsicles. The Zoku popsicle maker comes in handy on days like this!

By later in the afternoon, the illness seemed to have subsided and life was back to normal. I was a little nervous earlier in the day when I had called the pediatrician and they had said, ‘this could last for two weeks’ Thankfully it did not and life has returned to normal.

The pediatrician mentioned that this bug was ‘running rampant’ through the area so hope you all stay healthy and bug free!
