first question

“It is difficult to say who do you the most harm: enemies with the worst intentions or friends with the best” Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

So we're up tonight (okay well I am the only one up anymore)
3:30am- "mom! I go potty!"  One touch and I know she's on fire.
3:32- Motrin, temp 102+
3:45-puked up the Motrin
4:15-fever seems down a smidge {she is refusing to let me take it again} and she tells me to "get out nanence's bed mom."

Hypochondriac mom was on to something.

I am horrible. 
 I know the first question they will ask tomorrow is
"did she get a flu shot?"
and how do you look at her so miserable and say "well...we did every other year, but no, I meant to, but I was really busy."  

I can't sleep.

Look at it this way...there's a million people in the world who think that if you give your children the flu shot you're a bad mom!
There's always 2 sides to every story...
and you're a GREAT mom!

We didn't get flu shots this year either. Actually, we haven't gotten them for several years. It doesn't mean you're a bad mom. Kids will catch things, shot or no shot. They also bounce back 10 times faster than adults, so she'll be wanting mom back in nanence's bed in no time at all!
Take Care!
