I'm totally still here! Thank you so much for the comments of concern!
Ok, so I could probably offer up excuses and explanations - we were traveling, and then were sequentially felled by some kind of beastly stomach flu from the depths of the ninth circle of hell (you know, the level reserved for acts of treachery, which this thing certainly was totally guilty of, what with its randomly changing incubation period and symptom order and duration. Overdramatic much? Maybe, but I earned it with our 2-time ER visit week.)
Anyhoodle, luckily the kids got off comparatively lightly and were back in the saddle in no time.
And by the saddle, I of course mean, the big mommy-and-daddy bed, which is perfect for some sibling bouncing action.
