They're. Still. Sick.

Both of them.

Day 6 for Emma.

Day 3 for Hayley.

Day Crazy for Kate.

Honestly, they're being really good. Needy, but who's not needy when they're feverish and bored?

My saving grace during this Week of Sick? The girls' new obsession with iCarly. It's actually a cute (and tweenishly funny) show and I don't mind watching it. BONUS!

Hayley downloaded past seasons of iCarly on Netflix, so the two of them have had something different to watch.

And last night, we bought Barbie and the Three Musketeers. Emma adores the Barbie movies (shh! don't tell her I told you that!), so we bought it instead of renting. We've gotten caught in the Barbie rental trap before -- every time we let Emma pick out a movie to rent, it's a Barbie movie she's seen a hundred times before. So rather than spending $4 each time she rents the same movie, we just bought it.

I gave it to her a few minutes ago and I saw the biggest smile I've seen since last Saturday. Thank you, Barbie!

Now I'm off to work between beckonings. Ooohh! Sick kids and Support! Oh joy! Can... you... feel... my... excitement...? (Those ellipses are supposed to indicate the slow and monotone voice of that question. Did it work?)
