This is the first time it's happened. Yes, they always pass germs to each other, but usually they get things one at a time, overlapping by a few days of course, but never in the throes of it at the same time. This time we got hit with a whammy.
It has been a loooong weekend, filled with so much snot and whining I don't know what to do with myself. I am scared to go to bed tonight. Why? Because this is what last night looked like:
7:30 - Nolan in bed, no medication
8:00 - Rio in bed, homeopathic cough medicine
8:30 - Asher in our bed, homeopathic cough medicine and ibuprofen
10:30 - Asher moved to his bed
11:00 - Tracey to bed
12:30 - Jordan to bed
1:00 - Tracey still awake (having trouble these days - thinking I'm hyperthyroid but that's a whole other story)
2:15 - Nolan bawling and coughing up a lung. Tylenol and homeopathic cough medicine given.
2:16 - Asher bawling and coughing up a lung. Tylenol and homeopathic cough medicine given.
2:18 - Tracey consoling both boys
2:25 - Tracey sneaks back into bed, knowing it's not going to last
2:30 - Both boys crying again, Jordan consoling
2:31 - Nolan in bed with Tracey, Jordan on the couch, Asher quickly back to sleep in his own bed
2:40 - Jordan moves to spare bed downstairs at Tracey's insistence (he's way too big for the couch)
2:45 - Jordan moves back to the couch because he thinks he won't hear Asher downstairs
3:00 - Nolan asleep, Tracey still awake, God knows what Jordan is doing crammed on the couch
4:15 - Rio awake, crying to mommy about sore ears. Tylenol given.
5:00 - Rio awake again, crying to mommy about not wanting to sleep in her bed. Given that sleeping with me is not an option she wants the couch
5:01 - Rio on the couch, Jordan in Rio's bed
5:05 - Rio is not happy on the couch. Back to her bed, Jordan back to the couch.
5:15 - Maybe all of us are asleep at the same time??
6:45 - Asher up
7:00 - Rio up
8:00 - Nolan up
Entire rest of the day - someone crying, coughing, or snotting at all times
See why I'm scared to go to bed tonight? And did you notice that poor Jordan slept in FOUR beds last night?! Send us health please. PLEASE. The thought of having the boys in the ER again this week is not pleasing me....not to mention how much this sucks in general!
