A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down...

Last night I watched Mary Poppins for the very first time! I have always been familiar with supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, but I've never seen the movie. If you think that's bad, it's only been a year since I watched the Wizard of Oz for the first time. The Sound of Music is next on my list.

Well, my 4 year old caught the virus the rest of the kids had last week, so I figured we'd borrow the movie since he loves the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious song. It was definitely a spoonful of sugar last night. This last round of viruses has hardly been serious, and we have been spared from the really bad viruses (flu & stomach bugs) this year. Still, I am weary from so much illness in the past year. They say that infants catch somewhere around 6 to 8 viruses in their first year, well my first two didn't get sick in their first year (this is my daughter's 5th), so I am having a hard time writing this off as "normal". But it does appear to be a year with more viruses going around. Anyway, I know it could be much worse, but it's still hard. So, I'm going to try and take Ms. Poppins advice...
