Stomach flu

Kieran started it all, he was very restless last night and after numerous trips into his bedroom to rub his back, give him tylenol (he's teething), give him benadryl (when we discovered hives on his tummy) and give him back his pacifier, he finally let us know what was really up when he throw up all over his bed at about 9:30pm. I picked him up and he promptly threw up all over me, twice. Mark came running and and cleaned up his bed and the carpet while I cleaned up Kieran and me. Kieran went straight back to sleep, I had a shower, and we went to bed. Midnight comes around and I hear noises from Kieran, he's thrown up all over his bed again. Mark changes his bed again, I clean up Kieran and change his pajamas again.

They both wake up at about 6am and are a little grumpy. Kieran goes back to bed at 9am and Callum goes off for his swimming lesson, comes home and goes for his nap. Callum eventually wakes up at 3pm (that's a 3 1/2 hour nap), comes down stairs and promptly throws up - only his is also coming out of his nose, yuck. He's been sick two more times since then. Kieran hasn't thrown up at all today so we're hoping that this is just a 12 hour thing. All Callum wants to do is lie on the floor and watch Sesame Street.

Oh poor guys!! It's no fun being sick. I hope they both feel better soon!
I looked your pics and I love the series of Callum in the water geysers! He looks like he's having a blast! They have those at SeaWorld in San Diego (where we used to live). Emma (my oldest) loved them. I hope we'll be able to go back there one day to show Sarah.

Amanda - The geysers are at a local park and Callum absolutely loves them, we've been going up there at least a couple of times a month. The boys are both back to their usual selves today, thank goodness.
