I hate winter. not only because it is cold and ugly and cold and did i mention cold. I am so sick of my kids being sick! I swear my kids catch every sickness in Carbon County and I am just tired of taking care of sick kids. Sydney was throwing up all day yesterday and Kyler threw up twice. My neighbor had a little jewelry party and I thought i should go just for a minute and I guess one of her girls had been throwing up earlier, and so I thought we would be fine if they just didn't play with that one girl, actually she was downstairs the whole time, but the bug still got us! Ya know i feed my kids healthy, I make them wash their hands, they get plenty of sleep, I clean the shopping carts... I don't know what I do wrong- basically I feel helpless. Even talking to my pediatrician she basically said when you have that many little kids close in age, they just get sick a lot. So if any of you have any tricks of the mommy trade of keeping your kids well, I would love to know. All I know is each winter is getting progressively worse and I really don't think I can handle one worse than last year.
