Sicky

Two of my little family are down with something or other and have been delegated to their respective beds under lots of blankets. I am going to go to work and try to stay clear of germy germs as much as possible. Last night after reading another chapter of Anne of Green Gables to the littlest, she looked up at me with the saddest big eyes and asked very seriously if I could tell her what that "N2D2" was. It took me only the slightest pause to decipher her question. I said that the H1N1 virus was a flu that made people really sick. It was called the swine flu, but the pigs got upset. (I tried to get her to smile.) She looked like she was going to cry, and said that it sounded really dangerous. I gave her a big hug and told her that I've researched this flu, and I am pretty familiar with the signs and everything was going to be just fine. Plus there's no sign that this kid has H1N1. My lord. Poor kid. Wish me luck avoiding whatever they have which may be next to impossible. Someone's got to take care of these people!

Your poor sick little family. I felt sad reading about little B's sad face!

God love children :-) I hope they are well soon.

I would've thought she meant R2D2- I can't wait to be a parent so I can finally decipher the language of little kids! Sending good thoughts of speedy recoveries to your family!
