Down With Disease

Down with disease
Up before the Dawn
A thousand barefoot children outside dancing on my lawn...
But when I think it's time to leave it all behind
I try to find a way to but there's nothing I can say to make it stop
Just two weeks into preschool and already India has brought home a lovely case of upset stomach to share with the other 2 Turman girls (photo above is from her first day). Been stuck in the house for two days and canceled dinner and lunch plans with friends and their children...didn't want to spread the joy, of course. The word on the street is this fabulous virus is making it's rounds on the Shore; we always love being the first to try out something new.
Today we are watching Mary Poppins while dressed in every possible combination of crowns, mardi gras beads, dress up clothing and scarves. Later we will wreck the kitchen by spreading play-doh (yes, Janice, the dreaded play-doh) through the kitchen and pressing in in the cracks of the floor (very colorful). Unfortunately it is too wet to go outside. I'm still trying to jump-start my fuzzy brain to come up with afternoon activities that prevent abject boredom and frustration. We'll see how it goes.

Hope you all feel better soon. Nothing like preschool to spread germs around. I am germ-x happy now especially with visiting public restrooms all the time with two kids.

I just had to knock on wood when I read your post and thought, "Thank God we haven't had a stomach bug this year!" Bad karma, and now I've just asked to have a raging GI bug on our way to Minnesota next week!
I hope you're all feeling better soon and that the fabulous fall weather we're enjoying is making its way to you.
