Sick kids

Most of our day today was video games, boxes of tissues, apple juice, and resting.
We were up ALL night. Seriously.
Shi was in awful shape coughing uncontrollably...which woke up everyone in the house, especially since she sounded like she was going to throw-up any minute. :(
This morning she was so pale, with dark circles under her eyes.
She had a fever, and barely touched her breakfast so when she said that her ear hurt for a second and then went away, I thought it was time to call the Dr.
(Not to say I didn't debate it with the bitter cold and windchill warning, worse to take her out in it or worse to not get her seen?)

But sure enough, ear infection. :(

So we stopped at the drugstore on the way home to pick up her antibiotics and shopped while we waited for the prescription to be filled.
Sparkly Bling nail polish...ah yes, just the thing to perk-up my glamour girls. :)

Also grabbed some Peppermint candies to soothe their sore throats and coughs.
Cough drops are too strong and a candy cane really helped Shi's throat yesterday so I was excited when I saw the Peppermints there!

I think the antibiotics are just what she needed.
Finally...she sleeps. :)
As I was getting Vivian ready for bed, I got the vaporizer refilled and all ready and I couldn't find the cord to plug it in.
Vivian said "It got shoved under the bed."
"Why?"
Vivian: "I was trying to see if I could fit under the bed and accidentally pushed the cord back."
"It didn't work so good Mom, I got my head stuck."

Earlier she had asked me for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, so I asked her if she wanted a half or a whole sandwich.
She said "half" and was watching me as I was making it, then she asked "Mom, where do you put all the other halves of my sandwich when I ask for half?
Are they all in the fridgerator (that's how she says it)? Or do you throw them all out?..That wastes a lot of food, Mom." "Where do they go?"

I love five. :)
