Pest Control

There is an uninvited, unwanted bug pestering my family. It is making Nathan feel like this:
And it is causing Noah to feel like this:

And when our children feel yucky, John and I feel like this:
Well, maybe the eye bags should be bigger or darker... and the eyebrows more concerned/compassionate... and I've never been able to twist my mouth quite so much ... but ... you get the picture.

While we wait out the symptoms, we get to pray for them, love them, comfort them, hold them, wipe their noses, take naps with them, and make them laugh. (The laughing part can be a challenge but it's doable; it really helps if you make a spectacle of yourself.)

"Get out of here, Bug! You're not welcome here!"

The playing will resume shortly.
