Stomach Flu Revisited

The night before last I was up with children from 1:30 AM until around 4:00 AM. Miriam woke up at 7:20 AM. Rachel woke up at 7:30 AM. Last night I was up with children from midnight until 3:00 AM. Miriam woke up at 8:00 AM. Rachel woke up at 8:40 AM.

Oddly enough I'm actually feeling a lot better today than yesterday. I guess 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep is one of those wonderful things you can't go without.

So Miriam has diarrhea. Rachel has diarrhea and has been throwing up.

It's been glorious.

This morning when we were all still snuggling in bed, we reminded Miriam to be gentle with Rachel because Rachel is sick(est).

"Rachy's not sick!" Miriam insisted. "Rachy's just sad! Me make Rachy feel happy!"

Then she hugged and kissed Rachel over and over again, repeating, "I'm loves you, Rachy. I'm loves you. I'm loves you, Rachy. I'm loves you."

It was one of the sweetest moments of my life.

You know, in comparison to full throw-up buckets and the like.
