Sick Anyone?

Wow, last night just kept getting better and better. The boys got hungry so we ordered a pizza and I went and picked it up. My 4 year old had had a fever off and on all day. I found that to be interesting. We ate dinner, and my son got a little snugly. I kept asking if he was okay. He would say yes each time. Well, I feel asleep while the boys were watching cartoons. My 4 year old was still on my lap. I woke up to find him sitting straight up. I tried so hard to get the garbage can in front of him, but I didn't make it. I spent the next 20 minutes cleaning up the mess. That lead to some frustration (in fact I am STILL working to get the smell out of the carpet- YUCK!). I got him all cleaned up and tucked up and I went to bed (it was only 10am by this time). I woke up to "Dad, I think M leaked." Sure enough, my 2 year-old had leaked all over my bed. I changed his diaper and we both went back to sleep, woke up again 2 hours later and found that he had leaked AGAIN! Figured at that point it was time to just get up for the day. I ended up washing all the bedding (Go me!). We had breakfast, I worked on the smelly carpet some more, and we have walked to the post office.

Now, we are just hanging out and watching Sponge Bob Square Pants. LOL- I am not sure what else we will accomplish today. I have math tests to correct, planning for next week to do, and various other garbage. Hopefully I get the motivation before Monday, if not, oh well!

Later...

  1. I can top your illnesses a bit - lol. When my youngest was about 9 months old and my daughter was almost 3, I flew out to Washington state to see a friend I hadn't seen in 23 years. I left the two tykes with their father for five days. I hadn't even made it to Washington when the girl got sick and shortly (probably a few hours later) the boy got sick. So the day I returned to South Carolina, I was greeted with - I've never been so happy to see you in all my life. You can now take care of the sick children.

    My husband couldn't handle all the mess of them both being sick the whole time I was out of town. I think I came back with a sinus infection though because it rained the whole time I was in Washington and didn't make for a wonderful trip but it was fun.

    So I can sort of empathasize with you about having to deal with sick children while the wife is away.

    Hope everyone feels better soon. - E :)
