(sung to that childhood favorite of 99 bottles of pop on the wall)
99 pieces of bedding;
you wash one sheet
and another kid
(enter your favorite term for 'throws up')...
another set of bedding to wash.
Fun times at our house.
the plus side: It was sunny and dry
and I hung LOTS-O-LAUNDRY on the line.
the down side: wonder who'll be next?
the other plus side: not much in the way of meal prep today
the down side: we're out of saltines and apple juice,
and the only bananas left are green.
the plus side: Mr. W. escapes this germ warfare
the down side: one less adult to steer sleepy bodies towards the bathroom in the middle of the night
HUGE plus: Mr. M. has had this 'bug' the longest, and has not missed
(the toilet or bowl) once.
AND he cheerfully and proudly announces the throwing-up tally to his brothers and sisters, like it's a really great accomplishment.
Tomorrow is a new day.
