So how was your weekend?

I wish I could tell you we went to Disneyland. Or camping/swimming/ice fishing.  But noooooooooo, we had to stay home. All weekend long. And I wish I could blame the kids. “no, the kids are sick again, I’m so sorry but we won’t be able to make it”, but the truth is that they are the epitome of health. The adults are the problem this time.
Here,  I’ll break it down for you: Papa goes to work + papa socializes too much with the hospital staff = Papa contracts germs. Papa then comes home + Papa kisses Mama =  Mama contract’s papa’s germs. Papa and Mama get sick. And they lived smuttily ever after.

I don’t know about you but when I am sick, my usual need for TLC quadruples. Is lying motionless on the sofa while being served head to toe really too much to ask? (the pink cover please honey, no, this one is too small..no honey, my tea is not warm enough, can you please microwave it for me again? and where are my cookies?). The obvious answer (just in case you were wondering), is Yes. You just can’t tell a newborn and a toddler to take care of themselves because mommy and daddy are sick (anyway, they are too short to reach the microwave). So we pulled it together and played house, hoping the 2-year-old won’t play too much with the growing piles of kleenex. Sometimes I think that we will just have to burn this house instead of disinfecting it. Much easier.
