I learned a lot from a good friend Darci Lang who I met 14 years ago through a bridal show in Regina. She is an amazing woman and her message is to "Focus on the 90%" When 10% of things are going wrong and falling to pieces move your magnifying glass to the positive 90%. She has an excellent message and if you ever get a chance to attend a seminar or workshop with Darci I highly recommend it. So even in a houseful of sick kids when 90% of the kids are home sick (including mine last week) I am trying to take Darci's advice and focus on the positive!
So here is the "circus house" version of The upside of being sick.
Good Thing #1 Staying in your PJs all day. Making a bed in front of the TV out of couch cushions.
I give bonus points to anyone who can count the random socks and kleenexes in this post.
Ohh " I Carly" We love that one. I am going to do "I Corla"
Good thing #6 is awesome Drs., nurses, pharmacists, and everyone who helps us get through it!
Kids are amazing creatures. In the emergency waiting room one day and trick or treating the next. If only it was so easy for us adults. Just remember even in the times when your kids are sick and you are getting no sleep, you have to miss work and activities and the body fluids are coming out of every opening. That the best thing for a kid who is sick is having their mom or dad with them. Just being there for them is the best medicine there is.
