Days Without Incident Continued...

The record for days without incident is 2. 2 whole days. So, in about 60 days, we have maybe had 10 days that haven't included our good friends, vomit or diarrhea. I shouldn't have complained, because once again, my kids are sick. So, instead of 1-2 incidents a day we deal with 8-10. So far it has been Paige and Morgan with the issues, but this morning Oakley said she wasn't feeling well and went right back to sleep on the couch. Aiden is laying down as well and Morgan is still the one with the major issues of throwing up all over.
This is what I look like after a long night of Morgan getting up about every hour. Not good. Luckily, Trent got up with her half the time and even slept with her on the floor. I have a great husband. Then Morgan joined me in bed at 6:00. I tell ya, she is a mover! And that is my second shirt for the day, the other one is already in a batch of throw up laundry...
With this round of disease in our house, Morgan is turning back into Kilowatt. Nothing but skin and bones. Hopefully today will start getting better for her sake...and mine.

I have to say you look great for a lack of sleep and having sick kids. Wish I looked that good with no rest. You are amazing to be able to deal with all that stuff. Gotta love the joys of motherhood.

I bet it's so hard to get yourself out of bed on a day like today knowing what lies ahead! The picture of your sick kiddos is heart breaking . . . and I can only imagine how exhausted you must be! Here's hoping for a quick recovery for all the munchkins.

p.s. I agree that you look pretty darn great for getting no sleep and dealing with loads of puke!

Oh, Amy I am so sorry you have to deal with this so much. There is not much worse than sick kids...I hate feeling so helpless when I know they are miserable.

Hope the day gets better, and the dwi count can start going back up. BTW, you do look great for no sleep!

the fact that you are wearing a clean shirt and have a clean house is amazing. i can't seem to do either of those things even when my kids are healthy! you look great even with no sleep. maybe that's why my kids sleep through the night...i need all the beauty sleep i can get!!!

What is going on over there that your kids are giving you so much vomit and diarrhea? That is so rough. I feel bad for poor Morgan, all skin and bones. Good luck.

That really stinks! Poor kids! I hope everyone gets better soon!

Sarah said...

You actually look great considering the no sleep! I would be a wreck!! Hopefully they all get to feeling better soon.

Karina said...

not fair that you look that good and your hair is combed and you are not in your pajamas..... I would have still been in my pajamas, with uncombed hair and big dark circles under my eyes.... I know this because I spent the first three months of my sons life like this. No fair,you look that good!

Poor little guys. There is nothing harder than trying to be Mom when you haven't slept. I think you look beautiful! Maybe Trent's right and your kids will have super-charged immune systems when they get older.
