All three kids are sick. Again. They were all sick last month and I thought that we were probably done with cold season. Not so much. They all woke up on Friday morning with boogers everywhere and hacking like they had been smoking for years. Saturday night was bad, and I didn’t get much sleep. Last night was horrible too. This is what it looked like:
8:30: Ethan wanted to watch a movie in bed, the girls wanted to snuggle me in my bed as I watched a recorded Dateline. Jason was downstairs watching Shameless and Californication.
9:30: The girls are asleep and I’m falling asleep. Ethan calls me to come snuggle him. Jason comes up to bed at some point and gets in with the girls. I fall asleep in Ethan’s bed, sleeping peacefully for entire hour and a half.
11:30: Mia wakes up screaming for Mommy. She’s inconsolable. She doesn’t want to be held or put down. She wants milk. More milk. I try putting her in bed with me and Tater, but she won’t stay still. She tells me her mouth hurts, which I take to mean her throat. We end up downstairs on the couch, where after an hour or so she falls asleep.
And I get to sleep un-peacefully on the couch with one little blanket until 5:30.
5:30: Lila wakes up screaming for Mommy. I run upstairs and bring her back down to lay on the coach with me. Sleeping near me isn’t good enough. Nope, she has to sleep RIGHT.NEXT.TO.ME. on the couch. After about 30 minutes, she finally stops flipping around and kicking me and falls asleep.
7:30: Mia, who was sleeping just above my head on the couch, wakes up. I don’t hear her, but she goes upstairs looking for me. And starts screaming for me when she can’t find me. She wakes up Ethan and Lila while she’s at it.
Did I mention I’m tired?
My morning’s already off to a fantastic start. Jason tries to help, but when the kids are sick, they want mom. How do you deal with kids who are all sick and miserable at the same time?
Speaking of sick…today’s Mommy Moment blogger has a house full of the sick, and she’s sick too. She’ll be here sharing a Mommy Moment later this week.
