What's even better than lice the week before an international move?


Poor sweet Nina. She woke up with a stomach ache last night, and I told her, "It'll be OK, my stomach has been hurting too since this evening." And she said, "I'm going to throw up!" and dashed for the bathroom. And bless her little heart, she made it in time! Thank you Nina!! The last think I would have wanted is to clean all that bedding again 2 days later. Knock on wood and all.

She threw up again this afternoon in the downstairs bathroom. Maggie came over to see and remarked, with disappointment, "is that all?". There wasn't enough vomit for her, apparently. Poor little Nina felt too sick all day to do much eating. And on top of that, she ran a slight fever all afternoon. She did take a nice long nap at least, but still felt sick at bedtime. Cross your fingers that she has a good night.

Oh, a funny. We were talking about their great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmothers (great^n) and what we know about them (just that they're dead. How about our great^n+1 grandmothers? Great^n+x? You get the idea...) and Maggie asked about their "greatest grandmother of all," which I thought was an adorable and precise way to put it, and I said "Well, we do know a lot about her, because that's Eve from the bible!" and then a few days later Nina asked a question about "Alvin and Eve." Ha ha! I cracked up. Alvin and Eve!!

Hope Nina's feeling better (and that no one else catches the bug!)
