Okay that is it I HAVE HAD IT

with Germs that is. Jennifer started puking some time early Monday morning......thankfully we had the wonderful anti puke medicine at home...but it was still a rough go until about 12:30 pm on Monday...she was able to keep some stuff down. Then the icky poops started and she was upset cause she went in her diaper cause she has really been trying on the potty.....but we reassured her its okay.

In the midst of it...we lost her pet rock Tim......and put out an all points bulletin for prayer to find him. God answers prayer.....even regarding pet rocks. In the meantime my sister had painted her a new rock until we found Tim....she dubbed him "Harry Rock".

Her brother asked her: Are your rocks boys are girls?

She said and I quote: "They rocks........duuuuuuuuuuuuuuhh"........oh my word I almost busted a gasket laughing......like hello big brother they are ROCKS they aren't boys or girls......it was so funny. I am sure she got "duh" from her brother but it was beyond funny......wish I'd had it on video.

So today she slept all morning.....and I confess......so did I. I was exhausted! Now she has a low grade temp...100.4. I just gave her a bath in baby soap......man she smells good......she hasn't lost that fresh washed baby smell yet.....LOL. Christopher......he doesn't smell like that after a bath.....and Hannah does but not quite the same....know what I mean.......

In any case.....she is still quite lethargic but not dehydrated......just gotta keep the fluids going...I am so sick of germs and sickness. It it aggravates me because I have taken my kids to school and seen kids in the nurses office obviously ill.......and they could not have just developed illness that quick.......I mean raging fever.......and you can tell from their eyes and cheeks they were sick....so they were sent to school sick.....with "but I gave him tylenol" he seemed fine.......uh if your child has a fever keep them HOME! So my child doesn't catch what your child has........I do.

okay off my judgemental soap box.......but it irks me when kids are sent to school SICK for everyone else to catch........sigh.

Don't mind me I am sleep deprived and frustrated. Thankfully even in the midst of it God proves His love to a little child by helping us find her beloved pet rock. In the grand scheme of problems in the world......a pet rock is not a big deal but to the Lord it was important to Him because it was important to her and us. That rock brings her comfort......and she adores him......so we all prayed and God answered. I was able to show my kids........God cares about all our needs even lost pet rocks.

Isn't God awesome!?
