Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

No Crash Test Dummies here and and had nothing to do with the church floor; however, Dayton did lurch all over this morning. Sadly enough he woke up this morning with a tummy ache that I took pretty seriously given the tears in his eyes. I gave him so Pepto and popped him in the tub. He insisted he didn't need to go potty, that he didn't feel like throwing up, that he wasn't hungry and he curled up in a ball in the middle of the floor with a blanket. For safety measure I put a little tupperware bowl near him and grabbed a towel.

Ellie woke and we fumbled through our morning routines and migrated down stairs. Dayton asked Marky to carry him. He was gray in color and seemed pretty weak. The mistake we made was NOT to take the bowl and the towel with us. While we were down stairs Dayton spoke up and said he was going to throw up. Why I didn't move faster is beyond me. I did hop upstairs but the bowl had been moved so I was scrouning for another and went back down stairs only to find Dayton, the couch, his pillow and his blanket covered. Poor baby!

I got him cleaned up, carried the linens upstairs and he seemed to feel better but still didn't want to eat. The good knows is that his lurching settled the debate about whether or not he should go to school! Now he's snuggled up on the couch complete with Propel, lots of towels under him, a bowl and some Nilla wafers that he has slowly started to munch on. Ellie is content to make a Strawberry Shortcake bracelet and with a little luck the rest of us will remain healthy!

Fortunately it is Friday and the weekend is upon us. He is also doing amazing with his CPAP and that makes life much easier except for the part where I get up 4 times a night to check on the little guy! Lucky for me my dumb pregnant/diatbetic bladder serves as a natural alarm clock (is that really lucky???)

On the B Side: I am so fortunate to be able to work remotely. I do not know how I would be Mom without the flexability that my job allows!

Sorry about the D-splatter! Nothin' beats when your kids are sick. Ok, that's not true. Having a sick husband beats it. Hubbys can be such babies! That's why we love'm though! They need taking care of! :)

You are super-mom! Take care of the D'ster.

Love you

Too bad about the sick weekend. We had a sick little guy too... Noah got his first ear infection and somehow that meant he got to throw up too. However, Brett and I were celebrating our anniversary, so G-ma got to enjoy most of that fun. I hope you're all feeling well though and it doesn't spread!
