We ha a couple days respite, and then, last night, the final Houx fell to the stomach bug. Poor James. He'd JUST recovered from the Coxsackie.
Wheeeeee! Sound like a fun week?
We're all back on our feet now, tired and slightly shaky, but glad to be putting last week in the "past" column. Also, I may need to buy stock in Lysol. Is that a thing? Let us just say, I have repeatedly scrubbed every possible surface, and I still may require some napalm to finish the job. Anyway, it's over.
Let us never speak of it again.

*sigh* Do you ever relish the ten seconds it takes to walk around the car, after you've put your child(ren) in their seats and shut their doors after forty five minutes in the grocery store? Just a few, brief moments where you know they're safe and fine, but you can't hear them? No? Just me? Right on.
Anyway, one great equalizer and guarantee of a few minutes of peace and truce is our iPad. Miss V likes to sit and watch the J-bird do reading and writing games (or just regular games. Who doesn't love Angry Birds?), and he lets her press the occasional button - big of him, right? They both really love the interactive "Monster At The End Of This Book" with Grover and Elmo from Sesame Street.

The girl of the hour seemed pleased with her party, and that always makes me happy, since that is, after all, the whole point! Happy party, baby! We love you!

Miss V and the J bird got completely filthy and had the kind of fun they only ever have outside. They dug in the dirt, sat in the mile-high grass, found some worms, and Miss poured a cup of sand on her head. THAT was fun to shampoo out.
