Healthy body, healthy spirit, healthy mothering. This is the journey I have set out on with my two amazing children.

Sick Day

You may have noticed that I don't get to post on here very often.  Senior year is kicking my butt.  I am taking 15 credit hours of a very heavy science load, working 20 hours a week and both kids have busy schedules.  Neva has karate 2-3 times a week and softball 3 times a week although I only get to attend practices on Friday nights thanks to my crazy schedule.

So why do I get to post today you may be wondering?

Only because I have been up since 3 a.m. (it is now 8) with a very sick little boy.  He has already vomited nine times.

Nine.  Freaking.  Times.

I emailed my professor, Endocrinology lab TA, nutritionist and writing partner to let them know about my very sudden change in plans.  Now the boy is laying on the couch moaning (literally moaning baaaabaaaabaaamaaaaalaaaaaaalaallalalalalaa) in his typical smart aleck way while sipping on a coke and watching some television.  The daughter got up and got herself out the door thankfully able to catch a ride to school with a friend.

As for me?  I'm about to crash out on this couch and try to get a little rest.  Maybe I'll throw a little something into the crock pot before I do.
