Flu shot shmoo shot

 UGH  What a week.
We got flu shots. Flu Shot-Shmoo Shot.
Hurricane Luke was sick with the flu for 6 days!
Brady had it for about 24 hrs but still didn't feel 100% for a few days
Jon had it for 24 hrs (exactly at the same time as Luke at one point....vomit, diarrhea, vomit, diarrhea)
right after i finished cleaning the house top to bottom...i thought we were on the upswing- WRONG

Do you mammas realize how hard it is to get that toddler to the toilet in time? Brady had the flu once when he was a toddler and it was NOTHING like this.
In fact Saturday while i was working J texted me a message....

"ugh poo fountain out of the back of Luke's diaper. couch got pooped on, you might have to get one for your birthday now." (ive been wanting a new couch for a few years now..hmmm)

Finally gave up trying to get him to a toliet, the bowl didn't work very well...most of it ended up in a towel or on me. It will be a miracle if i don't get it.

Do you want to know what is great about all of this?
 I got extra cuddle time with my babies.
Monday night Luke would not sleep unless I was holding him. Brady gave me extra cuddles.
Poop, Puke, Cuddle, Repeat.

Would've loved to get a good Embrace The Camera pic this week but an old one will have to do. Too much poo, puke
 work and lack of sleep

jana- yes definately the flu shot! In fact (as im sure you are aware) we cannot work if we don't get a flu shot, it is now a requirement! If it's not the flu then its something else. Always busy with kids!
