Wishing there was a pill

I think that there should be a rule about children getting sick between the hours of 10pm-6am. Not sure how it would be enforced. But I definitely have a strong opinion about this. Maybe science could help to invent a pill to take while pregnant to prevent children form getting sick in the middle of the night.

It has been a LONG couple of days. Shaggy (Sharkbait's new nickname) started vomiting about 10pm, and didn't stop until 4:30am or so. The next day he was a bit whiny, but not bad. Than Moose had a belly ache right before dinner. He started to vomit from about 6pm- 2:30am.

Sleep has been sparse. Laundry has been overwhelming.

It is amazing that a 25lb child can produce about 6 loads of laundry.
16 towels, 11 wash clothes
3 large blankets, 2 crib sheets
3 PJ's, 3 larger Baby blankets

And that a 50 lb child can produce 2 loads of laundry.
2 large blankets, 3 towels
1 set of sheets

But the trade off in laundry is that the older child is definitely more verbal about how rotten he feels. When I come up from my sleep deprivation, I need to write a letter to someone letting them know they need to invent this pill for the next generation.

Tonight is the test to see if the third will be up all night. I really hope that he is somehow safe from all the misery. My hands are raw from washing them so much.

Oh, no! :( I hope everyone in your house is feeling better now.

I totally agree with you about the pill. We had to call 911 in the middle of the night once due to croup. Not the way you want to be woken up that's for sure.

Aww, so sorry you're dealing with that right now! I hope it's over soon, and no one else gets it - esepcially YOU! I agree, there should be some law against being sick at night. Heck, as long as we're at it let's just ban all sickness. ;o)

Oh so sorry! I hope everyone is feeling better:( I have been through these nights with my son...ours is usually asthma attacks. We have had a few 2 and 3am visits to the ER for them. Best of luck to you and I hope all your little ones feel better!

Oh no! I really hope the two get better and the 3rd doesn't get it. I will sign a petition for that pill too!

Good heavens, that some pile of laundry! Hope you all are better now. Nothing quite as dreadful as being sick for the holidays!
