Seriously, you guys, “What the Flu!” In a desperate attempt for me and my husband to avoid the flu, we were recently using up our Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and hand sanitizer at a speed never before seen in our house. We’ve always been pretty relaxed about germ fighting in our house, but with two family members so far succumbing to this winter’s nasty flu, my husband and I are on high alert – well, let’s just say we’ve been changing our ways.
First to fall was my kiddo. Poor thing; I swear there was never a more pathetic sick child. Or a funnier one; she had the most hilariously sad laments.
Please allow me to share “Things Your Kid Says When She Has The Flu”:
• “Mommy, what’s the point of flu anyway?” She said to me, her eyes glassy with fever. GOOD QUESTION, KID. What IS the point?
• “I wish I’d never met the flu! The flu is horrible!” This one she yelled from her bedroom in the middle of the night. I laughed, then got up and sat with her until the fever reducing medicine kicked in and she was able to sleep.
• “THE FLU IS SO STUPID!” She yelled, right after the antiviral meds she was taking made her throw up, again.
• “Does the flu last forever? Will I ever feel better?” This sad statement came a day before she did, in fact, wake up fever-free and feeling better. Poor little bunny.
Sadly, as you all know, my mom managed to snag the flu from some surface or another (probably something I couldn’t reach, since she’s about five inches taller than me). Thankfully, she’s okay (she came home Saturday from the hospital and rehab), but still… while the flu is a serious matter, it’s important to find the humor in some of the things that come with the flu, like being so achy it hurts to much to change the TV channel. Lucky for us, Tori managed to be her hilarious self. THANK GOODNESS!
