....and all we got was the stupid stomach bug. (You know, it's like those t-shirts). Anyway, the kids and I headed up to OK for a little trip. My mom was on spring break so we went to hang out for a few days. My brother's girlfriend, Savannah, was there too so all the extra hands were nice. Saturday thru Monday were great. Tuesday morning though, Hudson woke up with a little fever. I assumed it was an ear infection, after all, he has been off his antibiotic for three days. Well, apparantly it was not an ear infection, but the start of "Stomach Bug '09". If you recall, this exact same thing happened last January. We refer to it as "Black Tuesday" to this day. It starts off innocently enough. A couple stinky toots here, a few poops there, and then before you know, you are totally overun with poop! We loaded up to head home on Wednesday. I was driving through Norman to drop Savannah off and stop for a quick lunch with my brother. Every one eats great, we change diapers and hit the road. Well, what normally takes two hours and fifteen minutes, turned into a five hour trip from hell! We stopped no less than twenty times to change sour sickly smelling diapers. Several times, I would just get Huddy changed and back in his seat, start the car, and either him, Ella or Charlie would have another explosion. It was MISERABLE. Why oh why I ask you, does this only happen when I'm traveling by myself? I don't know either! We went through two boxes of wipes, I don't know how many diapers, and three way dirty, way stinky car seats that were promptly washed and hosed down when we finally made it home. Last night, Huddy had a major blow out at eleven thirty and had a midnight bath, but after that, everyone seemed to sleep okay. Of course, today we had our fair share of poops and I gave three baths before noon, but everyone seems to be on the mend and by tomorrow, I think we will all be back to 100%. Fortunately, it does not seem to be as bad as last year, and there was no throwing up this time. Small victories people, small victories.
Since I haven't had time to go through the pics from this weekend, here are some pics from the past couple weeks! Hopefully, I'll get back to my regularly scheduled blogging before to long.
Playing outside, poor Charlie, he can't even play in peace!
