Sick Days

Just in case anyone is worried about the fact I haven't posted in a few days, I want to assure you this blog is not going the way of my last one. I haven't posted because we are sick over here. Amira and I both have nasty colds- I even have a fever. Being sick and a mom is NOT fun. Mohamed always gets really stressed when I am sick, and subsequently a little snippy.

Anyway, Norah is healthy and happy as usual (due to her all-breastmilk diet, no doubt) so that's a blessing. Amira says she feels much better if she can be "nakey." She is currently eating grapes and watching Robin Hood in the nude.

And me, I'm missing the sick days when my mom took care of me. Whenever I stayed home sick from school I would watch Hello Dolly (a wonderful musical starring Barbara Streisand for those who don't know) and my mom would get me a Wendy's chicken sandwich and a frosty. Those were the days. . .

Oh, and for your viewing amusement here is a completely unrelated picture of a time I brushed Amira's hair into a 'fro:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a sick child, although I am blessed not to be sick myself (if you don't count the gall stones, of course). I'm sorry you feel so lousy! Addie, although still on a completely breastmilk diet, is sick and it is NOT fun. There isn't much you can do to console or distract a 5 month old. If her mom can't do it, nothing can. So sad. I hope you feel better soon and I'll call you back SOON, too!

Poor little Addie :( Have you been able to find anything to eat that doesn't aggravate your gall stones? I'll look forward to your call.

Oh- and after saying Mohamed gets snippy when I'm sick he came home from work and made a big pot of vegetable soup and took care of the girls all day while I slept :)

I love Amira's hair.

Oh, Jami. I hope you get better soon! That picture of Amira reminds me of the time you let me brush your hair out into a fro. =Þ

During a boring day at work, your girls definitely put a smile on my face!

Ah, Case, wish I had a picture of that on my computer to post. Mine was MUCH bigger than Amira's. Why don't any of our high school friend's have blogs? Or why don't I know about them? Not a subtle hint here, ladies. . .
