Surrounded by Sickies.

Mike and Claire are sick. Nothing too bad, just some belly aches, congestion, tiredness, low-grade fevers and on Claire's part, general crabbiness. They both are camped out in the living room watching Sesame Street, and I'm hoping they fall asleep sometime soon. So far, I don't have any symptoms, and I'm pretty sure that it has something to do with the Moms Can't Get Sick Rule. Growing up, I remember my mom getting sick one time, and I was sick right along with her. She claims its because of The Rule, but I have a suspicion that there is a second part of The Rule, Moms Can't Get Sick, And Even If You Were Sick, Moms Don't Get Sick Days.

We're a pretty healthy group, so hopefully this will pass quickly and we can get back to normal around here. In the meantime, I'll be using handsoap and anti-bacterial gel like there's no tomorrow.

I hope everyone feels better! I came down with something yesterday - airborne has been working wonders so far. I don't remember my mom ever being sick either...

Grandma Muriel was never sick either.

That's a petty hard and fast rule.
