I'm tired!

We had another rough night here. I'm not trying to complain but I would really like to get more than a hour of consecutive sleep. I get the baby to sleep about 9:30 and I made a phone call that lasted about 30 minutes. I climbed into bed around 10:30 which isn't bad. Just as I fall asleep Red starts screaming, "MOM MOM MOM" I jump out of bed not even really knowing what is going on. I run into his room and ask if he has to go potty. He says no. I give him a big hug and kiss and snuggle with him for a few minutes, in which time he is out cold. I realize it is after 11 which my husband should be home, he isn't. I go check my phone and see a message from him saying he will be late. I go back to bed but the commotion has woke up Peanut and guess what she did? If you said pooped you would be right. I change her and lay down to get her to sleep again. About an hour later Red starts screaming again and he stopped before I realized what has happening but he woke his sister up again. And she pooped. At this point I believe it is 1am. I change her and put tons of diaper rash cream on her butt, because I wanted to nurse her to sleep and that tends to make her poop. After 10 minutes of nursing she starts making her poop grunting sounds and she pooped AGAIN. Have I mentioned it is GREEN poop? I think she has another virus, grr. My hubby gets home at 2am waking me a little, but not enough to keep me awake. This morning I have GG in my room telling me Monkey is sick. I tell her to let daddy handle it because he is taking them to school and I need sleep and don't want Peanut to wake up, you know?

Fast forward to noon when we get Monkey from school. We all went. I put decorations in GG locker and then we went to get fruit shakes at the local coffee shop. While we were in the store Monkey says his tummy, throat, and head hurts. We get home and I take his temperature 99.9 well I guess he isn't going to church tonight. He doesn't want to eat lunch, now I know something is wrong. GG has to go to church tonight because they preform next week for children's choir. I get all GG's rides to and back figured out and make Monkey a doctor's appointment. I am hoping that when we go I can ask about Peanut's night time green pooping episodes. Right now Red and Monkey are both sleeping. Monkey stopped taking naps at 3yrs old and only takes them now if he isn't feeling good. I'm just worried this is going to start the epidemic of sickness through our house again. They did send home a sheet the other day saying that Chicken Pox are breaking out at school. Even if you have the vaccine you can still get it, is what the sheet said. I don't believe we gave that vax to Monkey anyways. I hope to update after the appointment.

We've had weeks like that-it's horrible. It does get better, but it only lasts until the next bug. Sorry, I'm THAT mom, so I can totally relate.

Oh no! And just when things were starting to get better. I hate to say it, but it sounds like strep to me-fever, tummy ache, no appetite, sleepy...
Oh I feel for you, I really do. Hugs to you all- hope you get to the bottom of it all!

I hope your family gets well soon!

We have had a BAD RUN of sickness! It doesn't seem to be deterred by the massive amounts of Lysol used around my house!

Oh Tonya,
Bless your sweet mama's heart. I hope you're all on the mend soon. Sending prayers of good health your way...
Also, the last email I received from you was the one where you told me where you lived. Is that the one you sent, because I replied to that one. Just wanted to make sure another one didn't fall through the cracks of the internet!
Again, I hope you're all well soon!
