When will it end?

I am sick of everyone being sick! Yes, Clara has the chicken pox. I can deal with that. She doesn't even care. Then Josh gets sick on Tuesday I think. I just assumed he was being lazy. He never said he was actually sick. He really was though because he so graciously gave it to me. AT THE WORST POSSIBLE TIME!
I'm a cake decorating instructor and I have a meeting every year. They motivate, inspire, inform and just give me a TON of free stuff. I love them!!! It was on Friday. The night before I stayed up late getting everything ready. I packed it all up in the car. The next morning I woke up to go and I was soooooo sick. I'll spare you the gruesome details but I was out of comission for the day. I laid on the couch while the kids watched movie after movie. Four in a row. They were so good. We hardly ever watch TV so they just soaked it up. The only saving grace of the day.
I was completely better on Saturday. Like nothing ever touched me. But Nolan. He now has a fever. Poor little baby. Its so sad. He's extra cute though. His lips are extra red, his skin extra white and his cheeks especially pink. And he's so cuddly. But he just lays there. He's the most active baby ever and he just lays there.
Worst Possible Scenario: He has the fever for a couple more days, gives it to Clara and then gets the chicken pox.
I think that's as bad as it can get. I hope it doesn't go that far though. Best scenario: He gets rid of the fever today and Clara's chicken pox clear up by Wednesday. That would be lovely. In the mean time I'm just going to try to enjoy my baby's cuddliness and have fun with Clara at home.

how unlucky that you were sick on the ONE day you'd get free cake stuff! So I think Clara gave Anna and Matthias chicken pox. I'm not sure that's what it is though, since a)there's only a few of the questionable bumps and b)I think they might be a cluster of mosquito bites. I'm not sure. But they're getting more each day. What do the early ones look like? Mosquito bites?
(Just kidding about them getting them from Clara, hehe)
