It is that time of year again, the dreaded stomach bug is going around and taking no prisoners.
I am seriously scared, but the thing is I am scared more about the kidlets then myself. I have been keeping them in a little more then I should, frightened that they are going to pick something up, something that will spread through the entire house and take no prisoners, including me.
Can I take care of the family while they are sick. I think so, but can I? I have before but it is so scary every time. I mean the lead up, the are they aren't they, even thinking about it makes me want to have a little tiny panic attack.
Being afraid of vomit and vomiting is the hardest in the winter. I want to hang out in my house and not expose my family to anything that could make them sick, heck there are days I do this. It is not healthy, and I know I need to get the kidlets out to socialize, I know that lets face it I am pretty darn boring. I know that I need to get outside.
So what do I do, aside from purelling the heck out of my hands and my kids? Seriously, I don't know, but I do know purell should start paying me because my children are hand sanitizing devotees. Oh and then the hand mousturizer, the anti-bacterial soap, the belach. The list goes on.
Winter sucks for me, and not because it is cold out, but because this fear is at its worst and I hate it.
Anyone else feel the same thing?
