First . . . hurry over to 5 minuets for mom if you haven't already to enter into a contest for cute jewelry . . . it's painless I promise, just a taste of the Blog party to come . . .but you only have until tomorrow (Sunday) to enter.
One of the worse things that I've experienced as a mother is being dawg-sick at the same time as my kids.
This is complicated, of course, by my hubby living with peritoneal dialysis - so he has to be hooked up to a machine for 10 hours every night. He has a 20 foot "tether" we call it, so he is able to go to the bathroom . . . but it isn't enough to reach the children in the middle of the night. Night time vigil is mommy duty.
Also into this equation is that both my kids are prone to croup. My little boy, much more so. It makes it difficult for him to breath laying down. Besides he is a thumb sucker and when he's all stuffed up like that he also struggles to suck on his thumb and breath . . . . you know, just a lot of not fun stuff.
So what started out as a cold for me and my boy is now croup for him and sleepless nights/regular busy but miserable plus sinus days for mommy. *Ugh* Notice the bag under my eyes, and cotton balls up my nostrils to control drips.
Dishes are piling up, laundry was started by my hubby this morning as he (BLESS YOU DEAR!) took our daughter with him to do errands, but I am not looking forward to hanging the clothes on the line, much less taking them down and putting them away
For now . . . . little boy is napping. It hurts to much for me to lay down and sleep (sinuses) so I'll blog.
