Oh man has this been a week… First I guess if you noticed I have stopped posting daily. I was participating in the BlogHer NaBloPoMo and was doing pretty good making sure I posted something every day – even on the weekends. Then … life happened and the house (miraculously minus me) got struck down with the stomach flu. Mommy duties took over and I spent the time balancing my freelance work and cleaning puke.
I lead a glamorous life.
Something I realized while attempting the NaBloPoMo challenge is that I don’t do good with the ‘you have to write for the sake of it’ thing. It’s hard for me to come up with something to say just because I have to post to a schedule. I, apparently do not work in that way when it comes to Accustomed Chaos.
I wish I could say everyone is better today. Big P and Babe E are doing a lot better today. Slowly starting to eat again. Princess R is still refusing to eat anything – even her most favourite thing ever, peanut butter. I’m trying to make sure she is at least staying hydrated but I’m starting to get worried about her though. Husband is also still really sick – he hasn’t eaten much in a few days & I haven’t seen him sick in a long time. I have yet to be sick – I don’t think I will be getting sick. Totally thankful for that because this flu – does NOT look fun. It’s gross enough taking care of everyone.
:: Anyone have any parenting advice on how to encourage the kids to start eating again? Is it better to let them decide when they’re hungry enough to eat or should I be doing something more? ::
