Hoping to get well soon.

So much to write but the entire household is down with the flu. It all started on Friday afternoon when Ashu threw up her lunch and started burning up with fever. She was worse on Saturday and we could nt even move out the house. On the same night, I started shivering with high fever and it was horrible. On Sunday, Antu fell sick and did nt sleep the whole night. Hd started popping pills afraid he ll be next. On Monday morning Ashu felt a little better and absolutely wanted to go to school (first day after the winter break) and Hd dropped and picked her up. While Antu and I slept the whole time. But I guess sending her to school was a bad decision as the fever came back and she had a nasty cough too. Rushed to the Doctor in the evening with the both the kids. As always, the Doctor did nt give any meds for Ashu. Asked to continue the inhaler for her and gave Antu Paracetamol after confirming with a blood test that it was indeed viral. Ashus whining was an all time high, Antu was in pain, I was tired and Hd could nt even attend an important phone call because Ashu decided to throw up just when I put her to bed! Oh man! Awful. Hd was the pillar of strength, poor thing. Cooking and cleaning and taking care of sickies but I could see he was losing it. Thankfully we are a little better today and he could go to office. Or you would ve read about us in today's headlines. "Husbands kills wife, kids and dies a slow and painful death by accidentally shooting himself in his toe instead of his head". What? You think I would want a quick and easy one for him after he does off me and my babies?

Wanted to write about my first ever blog meet(yay!) and so much stuff about our India trip. Will do so soon. Meanwhile, you can read about the blog meet here, here and here.

Achacho! Poor you! Poor Ashu and Antu! And pooooor poooor Hd! Get well soon all of you!

And Boo, dont you think Hd needs more training with kids so that he doesnt 'lose it' when he HAS TO handle them when you arent up for it,like the last few days? So why not leave him alone with the kids,as you had already planned and you coming here to Ireland for a holiday?My invitation is still open I say! Remember the break you menationed about in your last post before leaving to India? *waiting for your answer with chappal in hand* :P

Happy Pongal, Folks! Thanks for your wishes.

Revathi - Why do men need "training"? Do moms attend a boot camp or something to get trained on this parenting thing? Adhellam thaana varum. Also, more than the babies its me who is being diffcult here! hee hee hee! ;) Btw, read the fine print in my prev post. I said after I stop breast feeding Antu. So unless and until Hd has started lactating(!) overnight, thats not possible in the near future. Will keep the offer in mind, though! :)
