January 31

Wow! I can't believe it's already the end of January. Time sure is flying...

Here in the Roe Household we have two sick boys. I believe they both have what had me in bed all of last weekend... a yucky stomach bug. It hit Jack in the middle of the night last night... that's always fun. I'll spare you the gory details of our overnight adventure. He was kind of back and forth between saying he felt fine and saying he felt sick all day today... one minute he'd be playing, the next he'd need to lay down on the couch.

The bug hit Brayden midday. In fact, it was during his nap... he woke up crying, "Mommy, I'm siiiiiick...." and sure enough, he'd gotten sick in his bed. EEW. This is the first time Brayden's really had one of those tummy bugs where every time you eat or drink something, you're throwing up within 10-15 mins. Poor kiddo. Thankfully, both our boys are such good sports about being sick.

Today's picture was a tough choice though... while I could have shared a picture of the sickie brothers sitting on the couch together with their pots (for throwing up) and their blankies... this picture just makes me laugh so I'm using it for my photo of the day instead. Rob is in graduate school at DU, studying real estate. He's in his 2nd to last quarter. The program has been challenging, but it seems this quarter has definitely been one of the harder ones so far - lots of reading and studying. So much so that he often has to try and squeeze in some study time while the boys are awake. During a brief period when the boys were both feeling fine this afternoon and playing with their cars, he sat down at the dining room table to do some reading.... in the midst of puzzles put together on the table, a monster truck hanging from a crane, a deck of cards, and some color supplies. And almost as soon as he sat down, Jack and Brayden were all over him for one thing or another. Caught studying on the job! I don't think he'll be so obvious next time.... :)
