Gimme a Break!


In the last week, we've had double ear infections, sinus headaches & now the stomach bug. Hughes and Banks are definitely giving us a run for our money.

Last week, Hughes woke up in the middle of the night writhing in pain. I felt so sorry for him because the Tylenol was just not cutting it. I stayed up all night on the couch with him watching Inspector Gadget - yes, you read that right. Inspector Gadget. Now, he loves it and requests it all the time. Thank goodness for Netflix! Of course, these ear infections would come after his first cold after his tubes falling out. I'm not totally convinced that we don't need another pair of tubes but time will tell.

The sinus headaches are all me and have seem to have subsided.

Now, Banks has the stomach bug. And you know what that means - who is going to get it next? This is Day 2 - yesterday was the "bottom end" portion of the stomach bug. Today he woke up at 5:30am and had thrown up in his bed. Great. Thankfully, I wasn't productive yesterday and didn't get to change the sheets like I had planned.

But, on the bright side, Collins has given us 4 nights in a row with at least a 6 hour stretch (one night was 7 hours). So, at least one son is giving us peace of mind!
