wordless wednesday: i haz mor sickness

Poor baby. Poor mama. Poor Sis. It seems we have drawn the short end of the stick as far as non-life-threatening illnesses are concerned. Two weeks ago, it was the barfing flu. Now? Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease. I do not have the HFMD, but my oldest and youngest do. And Wee Man? Well, he's just annoyed that he's not getting any of the yummy Motrin. And to that, I say, Whatever, dude.

The Mister took this picture Monday night around 11:30, after HB woke up crying for the umpteenth time. We were tired.

The doctor said we should keep the kiddos at home until the blisters aren't active. Blisters? Oh yes. You must not have clicked the link to the CDC website. It's all about the blisters, baby. And keeping them home? Means...

We might have to miss out on the trick-or-treating. And that? Would totally not ruin my day AT ALL. I would rather hit the grocery store for a few treats, stay home and watch a movie than trudge around in the snowy mud with a bunch of weirdos in costumes.

But that's just me.

And speaking of just me, would it be really, REALLY wrong to dress up as Bristol Palin for Halloween? I haven't been able to think of any other pregnant people. And I think I could pull it off.


  1. Hi! Thanks for the comment at my place. You are hysterical. My son just had HFMD AND has those exact pajamas AND slept with me pretty much like your picture for, oh, the whole first year of his life.

    I don't know your political leanings but Bristol Palin would be a hilarious costume. I once went as barefoot and pregnant - it was funny. But not in snow.

    I am always torn between taking the kids trick or treating and staying home to pass out treats, which I love to do. Sounds like you don't have to choose this year!

  2. Oh no! I hope the, er, blisters heal soon. And that you all are well and rested soon.

    And yes, Bristol Palin would be an AWESOME halloween costume.


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
