Food and Babies

I must have some kind of good metabolism because if the gods were fair, I would weigh something like 400 lbs. I like creamy things. Not to be Freudian, but I don't care if it's sweet or tart. If it's creamy and runs to the back of my throat, I'll swallow it. I feel hollow and my mouth waters just thinking about it.

Gwennie and Emma are sick. Emma has had a fever for a few days, and Gwennie just came down with it yesterday after school. I should have known something was amiss when her daily behavior chart had all smiley faces. I guess sick and lethargic makes for a better behaved Gwennie. Her teacher was so happy about it, I don't have the heart to tell her it was because she had a 103 degree temp.

Gwennie pretty much went straight to bed. I heard her crying a few hours later. She had fallen on the floor of her room and she kept saying, "I don't know what I'm doing." I figured she must be delirious since she has never displayed a lack of self-confidence in her life. I held her on the couch for awhile and she told me that her "brains" hurt. She's so sweet when she has no energy.

Sorry for the short post, but I have to go make some chicken soup. Later

The worst part of being a mom, when they are sick, looking so pitiful and you can't do a thing to help.

I hope they get better soon,and you and Jethro don't get it!

Good luck with it - that nasty bug has been going around. I hear it is pretty bad for about 2-3 days (along with really high fevers), but you really don't feel yourself for about a week. Yuck!! Sorry your babies have the crud. Let me know if you need anything.

My sister has that kind of metabolism. She is about the only woman I know who has absolutely no care in the world about what she eats, yet she remains thin. I wonder if she's hiding a coke habit.

Angi - Fortunately, Jeth and I already had it.

Jen - Half Gwennie's school is down with it.

Anon - Not much you can do for a virus

Inanna - Thank you

Angi - Better

Gooch - I don't have the greatest metabolism, but from the amount I eat and the amount I exercise, I ought to be a friggin' whale.

Cig - thanks
