crewsk, best wishes for TC's speedy recovery! Besides yoghurt smoothies and chicken soup, perhaps you might want to prepare rice porridge for him if you know how. This is easy on the stomach and is usually given to people with stomach or digestive tract ailments.

Boufa, the only way he will touch rice is if it has beef stew on top, the canned stuff no less! I am going to try out one of my old childhood favorites on him today though, hot buttered rice sprinkled with sugar, it always made me feel better.

Ok. So what's the deal? Is he better yet? Is he? Huh, huh? Is he better yet?

Just a side thought; if he's not better by tomorrow afternoon, you could always pitch a tent in the back yard and relegate him to that. Then, everyone else can enjoy Christmas Eve without a lot of "Mommy, could you get me a glass of water?" and "Mommy, I think I'm gonna throw up", Mommy, tell sister to quit stepping on my belly!"

But seriously, I hope T.J. is happy, healthy, and in good spirits now, and that no one else in your house has caught the dreaded bug. I wish you, your DH, and your children a truly great Christmas and New Years.

We used to wake our children at midnight just so they could toast the New Year in with us. We used our finest crystal glasses and filled them with Welch's strawberry soda to toast with, and then played some games with them. It was a treat they loved as their normal bedtime was 8:30 pm. And to a kid, what better fun is there than getting to do "adult" things with their Mom & Dad.

I'm convinced based on my own experience, both as a child and as a Father of four, that if they could, children would pick their parents over their best freind if given the chance. It's just that too many parents won't allow that. They won't play with their own kids. And to me, that's a very sad thing.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

How's he doing now Crewsk? I sure hope he's all better and no one comes down with the same thing.

Thanks for asking Goodweed & Sizz! TC is doing much better, all that's left is a slight cough & runny nose. Thankfully no one else has gotten sick!!

I'm glad TC's better and everyone else stayed healthy, crewsk! My family ended up all having various forms of flu for Christmas! DH has it the least bad so he's been nursing Sofie and me the last few days. Sofie was a trooper and didn't let it stop her enjoying Christmas and all her new goodies and I still managed to cook a great dinner even though I'm too stuffed up to taste any of it. Let's hope our families are getting their illnesses out of the way early this winter and will be healthy for rest of it!
