you guys. this nasty virus is no joke. i’m writing in all lowercase to show my exhaustion.
hubby is of course traveling with work & that’s when all the fun always seems to happen.
isn’t that how it always goes??
this guy thankfully hasn’t even been touched by it, but for fear that he is still a carrier i haven’t been sending him to preschool & i’m about to lose my mind with all the energy he is exerting. this boy needs his friends & daddy to get it all out.
my sweet lucas. he seems to always get whatever illness is going around & get it 10x’s worse. this time is no different. just this morning new spots showed up all up his ears, more on his mouth, all over his heal & more on his bum. he keeps telling me that he has owies. poor guy. thankfully he’s a tough one & doesn’t show too much discomfort during the day, it’s at night that the crying happens. and it happened multiple times last night.
this sweet girl had it bad about 2 days ago. she, as you can see, was miserable. she just wanted to sleep & be held…and that’s hard to do when you have other little ones. lucky for her, she and her sister got on different schedules so it was a bit easier to give in to her demands. 🙂 and wouldn’t you give in with that sad, pathetic face??
and this girl. i thought i was getting off easy bc she still seemed so chipper when her symptoms started. then yesterday came. and then last night. oh last night. when i say she literally cried for hours….i mean hours. when i say that NOTHING would appease her….NOTHING would appease her. it was sad, pitiful & exhausting.
i thought for sure i was going to call it an early night yesterday. one of my dear friends brought dinner, then stayed to help for a bit bc livia had so much mucous she was puking all over the place from gagging. and well, i just needed an extra pair of hands. seriously, God bless her. anyway, in the evenings, all our kids are typically sleeping by 8:30 but in bed by 7:30 at the LATEST! Well, it was 9:30pm and 3 out of 4 were crying. oh yeah. it was absolutely fabulous. by 10pm i only had livia crying…she cried till almost midnight. then once she stopped lucas started. he went on and off until about 1am. then around 4am livia started back up and then stopped about 20min later. then about 620am she was at it again.
so basically i’m tired people. i’m not looking for sympathy or “oh i feel so bad for you” because i really am okay. i just need to let it all out on here so it doesn’t get bottled up and then i end up crying. nobody needs that right now. right now i just need lots of chocolate, wine & sleeping children.
