Another missed Sunday...

Why is it that my kids only get sick late Saturday night, or bright and early Sunday morning?

That's when they start throwing up, or having exploding diapers that require a hazmat crew and a clothespin on your nose.

Or at least a husband willing to brave the nasty crib sheets.

And no, Steph, I don't think it is catching. Probably just too much junk food and a really busy week catching up to him.

So we made the executive decision to keep him home from church today, so we wouldn't have to do the whole blowout thing at church. A good thing too, because we have already had 2 additional blowouts so far. I hope stuffing bananas down his throat helps...

This is three weeks in a row I have missed. Sick kid, family reunion, sick kid. I never missed a week as primary pianist. Except for having a baby. And being sick myself once or twice. Then they put me in Nursery, and I missed once for going out of town. Now I am Relief Society as chorister, and I keep having to miss Sundays for one reason or another. Mostly sick little ones because Mark is acting Elder's Quorum President while the other guy is deployed and so he has to be there and run the meeting or give the lesson.

Nobody better be sick next week! I want to go!!!!!!!

Too bad that you had to stay home from Church. My Sunday was interesting, I had to go solo with the two kids because Jeff had work. I'll blog that later. I really hope all your kids are fine next week (and you and Mark too!) so you can go to Church. By the way - I loved getting to spend time with you guys yesterday, thanks for dinner. We will take you guys out sometime.

Aaron was sick today so I got to go single with two girls, too. Let me tell you, it made nursery interesting...

Anyway, I really hope everyone's better next week. I know what it's like to just keep missing. Here's to health all around, whereever we all may be!
