Sick parents

You never know how much you do as a parent until you can't do it because you're sick.

And when both parents are sick, the wheels come off.

We ended up buying Pixar DVDs for Boom and buying ourselves an hour or so of rest on the couch. But that was not a substitute for well parenting.

And our 4+ day sickness perfectly spanned Memorial Day Weekend. I can remember no holiday weekend with such perfect, dry, warm-but-not-hot weather. I think we bailed on exactly 5 cookout opportunities, attending exactly 0. (I did grill up some bay scallops and corn on the cob, but it was low key.)
