If you don't have children, you no doubt realize that it's back to school time due to an explosion of "first day" pics in your Facebook newsfeed. I love seeing all my friends' little ones as they head back into the trenches…before the excitement of being back in the classroom is overshadowed by the countdown until winter break.
Well, reality stars are no different, and they are snapping photos of their broods as they start a new school year…or not in the case of Real Housewives of Orange County's Alexis Bellino. Instead of dropping her children off on their first day of school, she's nursing her kiddos back to health after a bout with the flu.

Like many families do, the Bellino crew took an end of summer vacation, but they came home with an unwanted souvenir…the flu. Alexis posted the above picture on her Instagram showing her family's recent before and after. Of course, many fans wished her kiddos a speedy recovery, while others criticized her parenting skills. I've snarked a lot about Alexis in the past, but having sick kids after a fun-filled vacay certainly doesn't reflect negatively on her.
Alexis captioned the photo, writing, "I know it's the first week of school, but my kids are missing it because we came home from 12 day vacay with flu. So this week will be about our trip. Here is the beginning & end! The in-between is best part!"
Here's hoping her gang feels better soon and is ready for a happy and healthy (albeit it late) start to the school year. On another note, can we talk about how awesome Jim looks rocking his finest Michael Brady gear?
