Long. Long. Long. Long. LOOOOOONNNNGGGGG.
with the girls and their sickness that never seems to end--it's been a longggg-a-few days here.
and cause I'm sure you want to know,
*Amelie stayed home from school for 3 days and declared everything BORING.
((upon finally reappearing at school on a scheduled field trip the teacher did not acknowledge her presence or ask how she was feeling. annoying. amelie loves school but the teachers are definitely lacking in the *warm and fuzzy* department.))
*Maeve has had a runny nose--nothing terrible but lots of post nasal drip and cried during the night--i went in to comfort her, put her back to bed and didn't realize until the morning that she had thrown up and laid in it all night long and I hadn't noticed.
Yes, I accept my *mother of the year* award-
-cause I like, totally deserve it.
*the girls shared their illness with me (cough, sneeze, wheeze hack) and I, in turn shared it with Ezra--who came down with a low-grade fever last night.
URGH. Baby fevers are the saddest thing on the planet.
Poor little e-boy is sneezing and stuffy and post-nasal drippy and a little cough-y. And the occasional coughs are triggering his gag reflex only when I'm holding him.
((This morning as we were heading out the door to pre-k he had an "episode" all over me. all over him. all over the floor. all over my sweater, coat and shoes. all over everything just after we had both gotten clean clothes on. So I changed him and me and cried and resolved to just
MAKE IT TO PRE-K. and we made it. Amen))
*the rest of the day was better. the elder girl was a bit on the emotional grumpy intense side. the little girl was a bit on the funny, goofy, picking on sister side. ezra slept. i ran around in circles cleaning up messes doing allllll the laundry that kept appearing.
you know, Mom stuff.
*So to sum up.
It was hard.
Things are better now.
Hopefully they'll be even better tomorrow.
((This all wouldn't have been so bad if they hadn't cancelled conan AND ugly betty in the same week--I am no longer on speaking terms with NBC!!)
