The Face of Swine Flu

Poor little Emma has been struck down by the Swine Flu. No fun at all. Brother is sick but doesn't have it yet. Both had a trip to the dr yesterday and are on all kinds of meds. At least with today's technology, we're able to work from home AND take care of our sick kiddos. Never having to be torn between your loved ones and a paycheck. I love my company!
Here is how Malek is coping with being sick....all the toys in the house and he'd rather wrestle with my ceramic rooster!

Rewind two days...back before our house was infected....we took Malek to the park for the first time. He loved it. He got to swing, go down the slide, and even feed some very hungry geese.

And even though Malek is only 8 months old, he is already over 21 pounds and 29" tall, we had to get him a new big boy car seat. He seems to love it. It's a whole new world to him now that he can see all that is going on around him and feel the air conditioner too.

It's amazing how fast illness can strike.......

Here's hoping no one else gets sick. Have a great day!


  1. Sorry to hear your two are sick. You ARE lucky to be able to work from home. My daughter doesn't have that option (working in a hospital's Wound Care Center) and I always worry about her losing a lot of a week's paycheck if she has to stay home with a sick child. (They live 3 hours from us, so we can't get there quickly to help.) Hope your crew is better soon.

  2. Poor kids, hope they're better soon. It is nice to be able to work from home -- when my boys were little, I was working in a hospital for the most part so it was difficult.


Thanks for leaving me a comment. If you have a question, feel free to ask and I'll email you back!
