100-blog recon

Worst birthday ever? -- Today is not my daughter's birthday, it's her birthday party. The wife noted that every single year, either she, or my son has been sick with the flu on my daughter's birthday celebration. So this year, she moved it up to today. Last night in bed, my son vomited. That means that I am the only one who this month has not prayed at the porcelain shrine. The wife has been slaving over preparations for the party, and then last night she got to help him by cleaning up his bed, changing the bedclothes, and helping him wash in the bathroom. Then she changed the sheets on our bed, because at bedtime, he'd been making a point of lying in it and not getting out when asked. This morning the kids woke up (it's always a little too early) and began begging and harassing the wife as usual. The boy got on our bed and would not get off. Kids have an instinct for finding the thing you least want them to do. Experimentally, I tried yelling at him, and that didn't work. He got upset and became more determined. He held a sit-in in the bathroom, to prevent his sister from washing her hands. I yelled more. I'm done with the yelling for today. I am impressed that I can do it without laughing. Worst Birthday, Ever? Let's try!
