I am so sick of sick children. Not that I don't love them bunches and bunches, but enough already!
Christian had a 103 fever from Saturday through Monday. Her head hurt; her body hurt; her throat hurt. I took her to the doctor who told me she had a throat infection. She got antibiotics, and went back to school on Wednesday.
Which is when Cullen came down with a 103 fever. And grumpiness. EXTREME grumpiness. I put him to bed an hour early last night (Hubs was gone AGAIN) and he didn't protest a bit. He did cry out a couple times in the night, and woke up coughing. With a fever. When he wouldn't eat or drink, and would randomly cry for no apparent reason, I guessed his throat was sore, too. I took him in this morning, and he's got what Christian had, only worse.
I gave him his antibiotic and cough medicine, and he immediately threw up. Poor baby. I really feel for him. I put him on the couch with his ganket to watch Caillou, and he fell asleep. I turned the TV off once the show was over, and realized he was giving me the perfect opportunity to play with my new camera!
Only he didn't want me to play with my new camera.
But I'm bigger, so I won. Is this not the most pitiful face ever? He looks like I kicked his puppy.
Hubs was out of town all last week and worked late the last two nights. Last night he got home after midnight. Tonight will be another late night, but not THAT late! Which I'm oh-so-thankful for, since I have contracted the dreaded sore throat.
The kids have been tag-teaming us lately. One or the other has been sick every single weekend for the last month. Like I said, I feel for them, but enough already! The sickness is no longer welcome here.
Not that it ever was.
Here's hoping your home is germ-free.
