...being sick is the pits!

As much fun as we had last week in Dallas, all good things come to an end. And by "end" I mean.... getting sick. Katie started getting sick Monday night. Her throat was scratchy. Then by Tuesday after school, she fell asleep on the couch ~ sure sign she's sick. By Wednesday, it's a full blown severe sore throat, major cough, drainage.... etc. But late morning she started running a very low fever, so I called the doctor. She had an upper respiratory infection. Lovely. Doctor's orders are to stay home until Friday (today). She's FINALLY back to school!

Then Maddie comes down with a sore throat and a cough. A bad cough. She's never sick! Ever! So, she stayed home on Thursday, and coughed.her.head.off! We're home again today.... but I think she's on the mend and recovering.

My thermometer went ka-put a few months ago. It's the kind that you take the temperature in the ear (well, as long as you HOLD it the right angle!). But the battery is expensive and sometimes hard to find. I received a Temple Touch Thermometer from MomSelect & Walgreens a few weeks ago, and was thrilled I had a working thermometer to check on my sick babies. I have to say so far about this Temple Touch.... I love how you just touch your temple or underarm to get a reading. No more sticking a thermometer in a body part.... well, you get the idea. :D

So, I'm off to spend a relaxing day with my Maddie Rose. We're going to decorate the tree today, clean my bathroom, make dinner for a change!


  1. Glad the girls are feeling better. I think our dr office uses the temple touch kind, seems to work well.

  2. Oh no! Your poor girls. Being sick the the worst. That thermometer sounds so cool though. I want one now. :) Glad to hear that they are on the mend. I am looking forward to seeing your christmas decorations. You know you need to blog about them! :D

  3. OH i hope you girls feel better soon!
    Enjoy the snow. : )

  4. Um, we had a discussion at our house about where they used to stick the thermometer when I was a kid... So, if that comes up, it is my fault. Maddie thought it was hysterical.

  5. I hope the girls are feeling better! :)
