Spring Break is ovah!

The kids are back in school where they belong and all is right with the world!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids.

But when all four of us are cooped up in our small home and 3 out of the 4 of us are sick, it’s no picnic.

There were no trips to the beach or play dates in the park for us last week. Just 9 straight days of 102 degree fevers, incessant coughing, running noses… and the dreaded stomach virus.

I was the only one that made it out of the other side of Spring Break unscathed.

Maybe it’s all my years of having small people cough and sneeze in my face that have rendered me impervious to viruses. Who knows?

I’m just glad the whole ordeal is done.

I made banana bread over the weekend and I threw in some chopped caramels as a special breakfast treat for my adoring children. Their response was “Um, yeah Mom – this banana bread is fine and all but you’re gonna get us some waffles tomorrow, right?”


Anyway, I thought instead of a sandwich, I’d put some of that banana bread in Cam’s lunch today. I used our FunBites Cube It! to easily cut it into little bite-sized cubes so she could just pop them in her mouth. She also has a Babybel cheese (her new jam), Annie’s Organic Fruit Snacks (under the cheese), strawberries, carrot sticks, and a little treat from her Easter basket.

    If it’s any consolation, only one kid here for spring break and he was sick with a lung infection until yesterday. I’m the teacher and I’m ready for my son to be back in school tomorrow! (I love my kid, but it’s time to get back to work.)

      What it is about spring break this year? A lot of people are sick. I’m glad your son is better.

        I have no idea. It’s amazing how sick people have been lately. Hopefully fresh air, windows open, and getting outside will help some folks out.
