Misery guts

Please excuse the lack of posts!

We're all sick again. This time it's something really nasty. It makes our throats feel like we swallowed razor blades and ears feel like they may explode at any given second!

Last night Noah was awake until 1am and then up again at 5am. Aus had a fever and was sweating and throwing off his blankets in the freezing cold (very stressful when all you want to do is cover him up!)

And I had to work today.

It's so much harder by myself and even though Hubby sends comforting messages and calls as often as he can, I'm still doing it on my own.

And something I hadn't counted on was how scary it is when you have sick kids and no one there to ask 'what do you think we should do with him?'. You have to make the decision and hope your educated guess was not totally wrong!

So far tonight they're both asleep peacefully and I'll soon follow them... right after I spend 3 hours putting another jewellery tree together!

And I have to work tomorrow... why do I do this to myself?! :)

Aww. If it makes you feel any better, as a mother of four (oldest is now 19 and married, youngest is 12-1/2) those "gut instincts" you have when they are sick are usually right! Feel better soon!

I hope you are all feeling better soon Kris.
You are a great mummy, try to remember that at 5am :)
