Where's mom's sick day?

Unfortunately, they've decided to share their germs with me. As much as my husband is helping out so I can get over the sickies, he still has a full-time job to go to every day. So I'm the one taking care of them and myself. And, at 15 weeks pregnant, that's not easy to do.
Of course, they're getting stronger and kicking RSV's tail as I'm getting weaker and coming down with my own version of the funk even harder.
Yep, mom is sick and the kids still need to be entertained. I'm living by this survival guide to help me get better and to keep them from climbing the walls until we can hit the playground to burn off some energy and get a breath of fresh air.
They've been good sports about taking their meds and chilling out while one of their favorite playmates recovers. Believe me, after being cooped up in the house for more than a week, we're all ready to go outside and play no matter what the temperature.
