spring where forth art thou?

last night we were awoken by the sounds of a child throwing up outside our bedroom door.
Like life long partners we sprung from the bed, without a word passing between us. Big grabbed E and ran to the toilet, sadly spewing a trail of vomit behind them :(
And we started our middle of the night cleaning ritual. I helped our boy to the shower, got clean clothes, stripped the bed and cleaned the toilet and the tile.
Big grabbed the carpet steamer and began cleaning the trail.

Eventually he was tucked back into a freshly made bed, the carpet was clean, the washer was running, we changed jammies and washed hands and got back into bed.

I was hope hope hoping that he would be fine in the morning. Today I was supposed be going on a field trip, to the beach, where it would be cold but fun. Instead I had to call in for a sub, again. Second time in the four weeks I've had a job. 2 other days Lu was sick and sweet Michelle kept her, and 1 day Han was sick and I left her home alone. (she is almost 12).
What is the deal?

I can not wait for fresh air, sunshine, warm weather, spring break, healthy children!

I'm with you, Lana. I am so ready for warm weather!

We have been hibernating since the baby was born. REALLY. We have been home a LOT and avoiding crowds where sickness will congregate. We've had some illness but it has been the healthiest winter in years for us. Not that I like being this isolated, but for now, with a new baby, with recovering from the fatigue of pregnnacy and being up at night, it is the right thing for us.
Hope E. is better.

Sorry about the sickness--never fun. My kids always had a tough time finding the toilet when they were sick ; (

I'm looking forward to spring, too.
