Poo Poo The Stomach Flu...and Peanut Butter
Yes, after we got over the nasty goopy cold, flu and ear infection mess we had 2 days of health before we came down with the stomach flu for a week. Ick, Ick, Ick!!! Not only were there piles and piles of laundry from many nights of kids puking, but Tage and Simon started feeling better and got a hold of peanut butter and decided to rub it all over their entire bodies! I am not kidding! They were covered from head to toe with thick creamy (thank you Jiff) peanut butter! Then they realized how foolish they were being and knew they were going to be in serious hot water, so they started looking for any clean cloth they could find to clean themselves. Unfortunately most rags, towels, and bedding were waiting to be washed so they started taking clean clothes out of their closet to wipe themselves down. This also proved to be an ineffective way of getting the sticky mess off themselves so they decided to move the mess from their bedroom to their bathroom and take a shower, which really only made their bodies slimy rather than sticky! It sounds like this would have taken hours, but really it all happened in a matter of minutes. Fortunately for me...and not so much for them, Brant came home about the time I discovered it and took care of the situation! I was still down with the stomach flu at that point and discovering it pretty much put me right over the edge. Brant cleaned, disciplined and cleaned some more while I went to bed. It's funny now, but was quite distressing at the time! Here are a few wrestling pics that we took during the week. This was before the peanut butter fiasco!
