A Day At Home

William, having thrown up several times over the last few days, has stayed home from church. Mark is the only one left from Elder's Qorum, the others deployed a few weeks ago, and therefore has to give the lesson. So I was the logical choice to stay home with munchkin.

Happy Father's Day, Honey! Now take the kids to church....

And of course, William has seemed fine so far this morning, but Nathan was complaining that his stomach hurt a bit earlier. We sent him anyway since it could just be stomach cramps from the Milk of Magnesia we gave him yesterday. It's hard to say. But William still has the runs so we thought we'd err on the side of caution just in case. It has been really boring. I actually get to sit and enjoy church now with the kids being older. I even get to listen to the talks occasionally! So I am missing being at the meetings this morning. I like leading the songs.

Steph, I don't know who gave what to whom. Amanda was sick a couple days ago too with the same thing! :-) Sorry, just in case.

Plus, not being at church throws my whole Sunday off. I am not hungry at the usual eating times, because I end up grazing all day. And the kids will be harder to deal with later because my routine is off.

But, at least William will not be throwing up or blowing out in Nursery, or getting some other poor little kid sick. And he is being very snuggly, which I love, because all too soon he will be taller than me and won't fit on my lap any more.

Jeff ended up taking the kids home after Sacrament Meeting today. Zaylee has had major sniffles since Thursday and we didn't want to infect all the kids in nursery. Thomas is getting sniffly too. Plus I had to play the organ in SM and the piano in Primary, so Thomas had to go home with Dad and Zaylee. At least Jeff got to be there for Sacrament Meeting when all the Primary kids sang "I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home."

Hope all of our kids feel better soon!!

ICK! Isn't it bad to be sick?!?!

How fun that Jeff got to see Zaylee sing...weird thing, in our ward the primary doesn't sing. Strange, no??

Anyway, hope everyone gets feeling better!

Oh, Zaylee didn't sing. It was only Sunbeams and up, and she's still nursery. But he got to see all the other kids sing! :-)
