So I've been MIA this week. It's been pretty crazy at my house and since there is really nothing besides our every day life to blame, I'm blaming it on the girls' first colds. Yup, you read correctly. The girls are sick for the very first time. I don't know if they caught something from someone when I took them to campus last week to visit Jeff at work or say hi to my co-workers or if Jeff brought something home, but mysteriously, doesn't get it himself. Regardless, it happened. I'm proud to say that we lasted nearly 7 months before they got sick, but I wish I could have prolonged it about another 18 years! Poor things. Anna had it first, or I noticed her runny nose first. So I quarantined her from playing with all things fun and she had to sit on her own little quilt and play with just a few little toys that I could wash. Unfortunately, by the time she showed symptoms, all 3 had already been infected because by the next day, all 3 had runny noses. They aren't running fevers and really don't seem to mind the endless snot running down their face, except for when I wipe it away. They scream worse than when they get shots. They seriously HATE getting their noses wiped. So of course now I am sick. How do you take care of 3 babies and not get what they have? But, this too shall pass. Hopefully I'll be able to blog a bit more next week. We are getting dangerously close to 7 months...can you believe it?
