Sick Day (not good)

Yesterday we were at Target when Ethan came to me and said he wasn’t feeling well, he thought he was going to throw up. Lupe took him to the bathroom and sure enough my poor guy’s lunch was no longer in his tummy.

For dinner we ordered pizza, you know your child is not feeling well when he doesn’t want pizza. Not one but two of my kiddos! Lance was not feeling well either.

They both just wanted to lie down. Thankfully I had some coconut water (natural electrolytes).

I had them sipping coconut water. Thankfully most of my kiddos like this because next up was Brent! He only ate a few bites of a breadstick and said he wasn’t hungry. Next thing I know he’s running to the bathroom.

I also added cinnamon tea using True Ceylon Cinnamon. I added a pinch of salt and sweetened with coconut nectar and another time with raw honey.

Cinnamon is an anti-bacterial that will destroy the bacteria and viruses. Just boil 2 1/2 cups water, whisk in 1tbl of Ceylon Cinnamon, let sit for 5 minutes, strain, add honey/coconut nectar, and serve. I poured the tea over ice for my children.

I added some gelatin for extra nourishment.

By 4:00 A.M. Annette and Caleb were added to the stomach bug list. My kids were dropping like flies.

I was up till 5:00 A.M. brewing tea, giving coconut water, filtered water, and stroking cute-small backs, praying, and keeping watch. Joshua and his cousin slept out in the backyard. I usually stay up because we have no fence.

I was working on some school stuff. All About Reading 4 arrived on Saturday, hurray! I need to really use an affiliate link since I am blogging abut AAR/AAS so much (no affiliate links in this post).

So here I am sipping my Bulletproof Coffee (well semi, since I don’t have any Bulletproof coffee beans).
I love Raw Coconut Butter. Artisana is so good. I just eat it out of the jar (no double dipping).

Josh and his cousin had fun staying out all night. They stayed up till 1:00 A.M. around 4:30 A.M. I heard thunder. I went outside and the sky was flashing, thunder and lightning. I woke the boys to have them come inside. As soon as Josh was on the porch it started raining cats and dogs. We all laughed how I brought them in, in the nick of time. Too fun.

Today we are taking the day off from school. I’m going to get everything ready for tomorrow.


  1. (((hugs))) and praying everyone gets healthy soon. Stomach flu is not fun especially when it goes through all your family.

  2. Thank you, I caught the bug as well. Lupe stayed home from work to help me out.I had committed to watching 4 kiddos that day and didn't want their mama's to have to scramble for another babysitter as they had to go to work.
