"Are they triplets?" "No, I found the other one in the parking lot and thought, 'why not?'"

We had a wonderful weekend visit with family.  We even managed to get a morning at the pool before family checked out of the hotel.  Swimming was lots of fun for the most part.  Aidan did not take well to the water and the echo(y) sound of the pool area.  He cried for quite some time but finally quieted down and seemed to enjoy the water.  Isabelle too liked the water.  She enjoyed playing at the stairs mainly and splashing anyone if they came close.  Madeline was the all star.  She swam with Mommy.  She would kick her legs and had a great time in the water.  She liked being tossed in the air only to land with a big splash.  Out of all the kids, she probably had the best time.

I’ve spent the last two days in bed trying to get over what ever germ has weaseled it’s way into my body.  Just as I get over it, the kids are now showing signs of feeling the way I was just the other day.  I tried my best to keep away from them all by staying upstairs since Ian stayed home.  So far 2 kids have had mini throw ups and all three have had some seriously gross poops.

The three of them at lunch time looked like they just needed to go to bed rather than try to eat lunch.  I made them scrambled eggs and toast in hopes that would be easy on their tummies.  Seems to have worked so far.  They are all napping and I’m debating joining them for the last two hours.  I could always use more rest.  Fingers crossed they aren’t all going to be terribly sick.

Parenting and adulting is hard. There is no manual. No volume control. No self cleaning house and self refilling fridge. This is my story of navigating through the ups and downs of our crazy-wonderful life.
