Sorry for my disappearance…we’ve spent most of the week in our PJs around here. I’m a momma on the edge. Just less than 24 hours after the germ fest Halloween party, Sabrina started sounding hoarse and coughing a bit. At 3am, I was awoken by a child screaming “Mommy, I puked.” Fortunately, her fever only lasted about 24 hours and she seems to feel mostly okay. She has a cough and a runny nose and a bad case of the whines but she is fine otherwise.
Tessa had a very brief low grade fever but the cough and runny nose is worse for her. She has started coughing to the point of throwing up. It is lovely. I have a mountain of vomit-y clothing to wash (hers and mine) and can’t stop wiping her nose and washing my hands. She is down right crabby (who can blame her?) and I shudder when I feed her because I consider her fully loaded at that point.
Steve has been working non-stop for the past 3 weeks and my dutiful “Do what you need to dear…I know you would rather be home with us” has stopped being said with a smile and now is being uttered through gritted teeth. I don’t know how you mommas with traveling or workaholic husbands do it. I miss my partner in this craziness. When he is home, he is torn between his want to spend time with the kids and his desire to just rest for a few minutes.
I don’t think the girls will be well enough to attend the Halloween party we were going to tomorrow but Sabrina should be fine to trick-or-treat tomorrow evening. Hopefully, I’ll have some photos to share soon.
