The Stomach Bug

It creeps into your house in the middle of the night
Taking precious sleep from parents and babies
It steals away hours of sick time
And any plans you may have for the next twelve to twenty-four least

It necessitates loads and loads of laundry
An abundance of lysol
Towels and pedialyte
And mother's comfort

It will suck the life out of a rambunctious toddler
And sap the strength of everyone involved
Pale skin and tired eyes are it's hallmark
Trips to obtain pedialyte and crackers are the result

Poor babies
Poor parents
Poor everyone involved
House is in quarantine.....

  1. I would "get" the desolation of this more if it weren't underneath such a cute and happy picture.
