Ever notice that sick and tired always go together? Ok how many moms also know that they are tired even if they aren't the one who is sick?? (I see you all raising your hands... I know I do!)
This has been the week of the never ending head cold here. Blake got it first, then Richard, then Colby and then guess what... I got it too! Here's how it goes... Blake gets it and then sleeps fitfully the first two nights. Guess who also doesn't get a good night sleep? Richard then gets it, but he at least takes some Nyquil so he does sleep. Then Colby has a terrible night sleep... guess Colby's getting it too. Oh and that means I'm up again! Are you counting yet... less than a week... three nights of crappy sleeping/sleeping on the couch if at all... guess what that means.... a tired Mommy who now can't fight it either.
The boys and I have had lots of do nothing days this week just cause I'm pretty much too tired to function. Blake has actually had THREE naps this week. Colby isn't napping as well cause he is congested.
So both boys' beds are propped up on blocks. Vicks is applied every night to chests, backs and feet (now if only Blake would wear his socks it might work better). There are lots of tissues being used and lots of hand washing going on (especially mine since I had to wipe all that snot).
I can't complain too much as they only have head colds... no fever, no vomit, no green snot... you know you needed to know all that!
I just wish they didn't have to share all these lovely germs and restless nights with me.
