B.R.A.T.s

No, no, I don't mean my babies are being naughty! I'm just referring to what we've all been subsisting on for the last few days; the BRAT diet: Bananas, Rice, Applesause, and Toast. All of us from biggest to smallest have been the miserable recipients of the dreaded influenza virus. It's a surefire way to slim down quickly, but I don't recommend this method. Fortunately for me, my Mommy made a two-hour trip to rescue my poor little ones who were suffering from starvation and neglect as I made my bed on the bathroom floor. I was starting to have visions of Lord of the Flies in my delirium. But, we're feeling a lot better now and are starting to join the land of the living. One good thing about illness: we are all forced to slow down and just enjoy one another's presence.

Babies get cuddlier when they don't feel good.

Oh my, I'm so sorry you and your family have been feeling under the weather as of late! ;) Glad to hear you are making small improvements in the way of recovery, though!! My prayers are with you at this time.

Blessings in Jesus,

Your last line is so true!

Sorry to hear about the flu bug biting. BRAT really does the trick....
