A friend with 6 children got hit with the flu. This was the result.
To the tune of “What Child is This?” by Sheri Reimer
“What child is this now vomiting, on bedding and on everything?
While two more bend over the commode and I run to and fro?
This, this was quite a sight. The clean up took me half the night.
This, this was quite a sight, the stomach virus blight.”
Following in the footsteps of my fellow musician, I have created a second verse.
“What child is this that is so sick? Oh dear, which one do I pick?
Help! There’s buckets all over the floor, uh oh! I need one more.
This, this is such a sight. I’ve done laundry half the night.
This, this is such a sight, the stomach virus blight.”
But we were both blessed in that it didn’t hit us over Christmas! She got hit before and I got hit the day after.
