Burn, Baby, Burn

Have we mentioned that part of our childcare arrangement is a swap with another family? I watch their kid on Mondays, and they watch Natalie on Thursdays. It’s great. The kids love each other, the other family is pretty in line with our child-rearing philosophies, etc. They even use cloth diapers.


We keep passing bugs back and forth. That’s where we got the evil stomach bug. There have been a few colds. Today Natalie, who had been getting congested over the weekend, woke up with a fever. We figured it was either her ear infection coming back, or the cold that C’s mom came down with last Friday, so we said it was OK for C to come anyway. Shortly after C arrived, I noticed he felt hot. Naaah, I thought. Just imagining things. Finally I took his temp. 102.

So now hot stuff #1 is napping in her crib, and hot stuff #2 is napping in my arms. Gonna be a fun day around here. Thank god my sister is visiting. I only hope that it’s slightly less contagious than the stomach thing. (which reminds me, I spoke with my dad yesterday and we DID get him sick. Luckily it was after he made the 10 hour drive home).


  1. Now you know what it’s like to have sick twins! (Only one of them doesn’t go home at the end of the day, hee hee.) I really hope they both feel better soon and that you get a break. Enough of the sickness already!

  2. LOL, the dreaded “sharing of the germies”.

    It had to happen sometime, and at least Natalie is building up her immune system.
