And the Winner is...

I didn't know. No, really. I had no idea that my children could be so devious. Apparently they've been planning this for a long time, but I'm just barely catching on. They are having a contest amongst themselves to see who can be sick the most days this year.
So far Little Bug is in the lead with 10 days.
Baby Girl has 4 days - including today.
And Red is seriously lagging behind with just 1 day- that would be today.
I'm afraid I'm going to have to step in and be the "mean mom" and put a stop to this little game they are playing. The fevers, the coughing, the hours in the bathroom... I'm putting my foot down. No more contest!
I'm sure that they will whine and complain, but I'm okay with that (as long as the whining and complaining isn't accompanied by germs). A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do! Right?

You guys *have* been sick a lot his year. Hope that means your kids have immunity to all the germs and won't get sick for the rest of the year!

I could sort of use some time off right now. Want to rub some of that off on me?

Let me guess... the contest was little bug's idea?
Because usually at my house, the person who's winning is the one who made it into a contest in the first place.

Hope you feel better and don't win!
