Oh- the stomach flu! In my mind nothing is worse than little ones dealing with this. And its been a month and a half of on and off sick babes in our home. Passing it back and forth between them and really its no wonder when Ysa feels she needs to shadow her sister from morn to night. So how do I break the spell between these two when they are sick? To try and keep the healthy away from the sick?! Cleaning everything in sight wasn't enough. Laundry was impossible to keep on top of. So when my little Aubrie was leaning over the toilet with an upset stomach it really was little surprise to find Ysa at her heals. The part that tickled me was when Ysa cries out in utter frustration that she wanted to be sick too. Nothing is really any good unless its just like her big sister. So if Aubrie had an upset stomach then she would too. Simple and true as that. She leaned into the toilet when Aubrie did and would not be talked out of it. Try as I might to convince my sweet little girl that she really needed to give Aubrie some space...no. Tried distracting her...no. I even stooped to bribing...no. She knew where she had to be and that determined babe was immovable! Once Aubrie started to feel better she found the couch. However Ysa instantly seated herself on that vacant stool resting her head on the toilet seat and mimicked the face of misery. Funny little thing. We seem to have finally beaten this flu and I couldn't be happier to see color back in their plump little cheeks.
