Well, it’s done. All the kids have succumb to illness. I can’t remember the last time everyone was sick at the same time.
This morning it was just the boys. They spent the morning sleeping while Miss B was watching cartoons on iTunes.
And then she climbed into bed with me while I read a book and fell asleep. That was unnerving because she never naps. She hasn’t taken naps since she was 2 years old. She woke up a bit later but didn’t get out of bed. She just stayed cozy against me for another hour and then eventually fell asleep again.
When she woke up after her second nap, her fever was 103.4*.
So there we have it. Everyone sick at the same time.
My fingers are crossed that Jake and I stay well. At least until everyone else gets better. Though this cough deep in my chest suggests perhaps not. Here’s where I admit that I’m so, so glad we are not on the bus.
We broke down and bought a television and dvd player. There have been times during our trip that we thought we’d like to have them, but we kept putting it off. We didn’t have the space, but we were also glad to read, talk, and play games rather than watch television.
But this seemed like a good time to do nothing but relax and watch movies. In between naps we’ve been watching all the Jake Ryan movies. We’re currently watching The Hunt for Red October. We also watched the Ocean’s trilogy (my favorites!).
So that’s what is new with us. Here’s to some quick healing and lots of good movies along the way.
Do you have any suggestions for good movies we might enjoy?
