So today started off like most other days with the kids eating breakfast, watching a little TV and then heading off to school. Then I enjoyed a little "me time" at the gym doing this awesome boot camp class with a couple of girlfriends. After showering I met Steve for lunch before picking up the kids from school. Shortly thereafter, the kids were in their respective beds taking naps while I was relaxing in the peace and quiet.
Unfortunately, that peace didn't last long because Bennett started screaming for me. When I walked into her room, she was sitting up in bed, crying because she had thrown up all over herself, her blankets and her favorite stuffed animal. I called for Steve, who thankfully was there to assist in stripping her down and getting her showered. Meanwhile I cleaned her linens and started doing laundry....again.
After the shower Bennett was wide awake, and not interested in taking a nap. I let her veg with cartoons for a little while, but then I made her lie down. She had no interest in sleeping on a bed though, so she slept on Spencer's dog bed in her sleeping bag....pathetic I know, but she was quite comfortable and took a 2 hr nap until we woke her.
Since then she has thrown up two more times...so it looks like this weekend is going to be a repeat of last weekend. What a bummer for us.... One of these days when everyone is healthy again, I'll write a post that includes some photos. Until then, pray for this to be a 12 hour bug.
