Now, you may be thinking my children are the best behaved, most wonderful little angels ever, and why wouldn’t you?! I’ve never said otherwise (not in writing). But today I’m ready to quit my job and run away screaming! (of course I wouldn’t do that so don’t call CPS, they are, at this moment, angelically sleeping in their beds and I can remember how much I dearly love them!)
My daughter is sick, I haven’t slept in two nights since she’s had high fevers and couldn’t sleep. I finally had to find the medicine. I don’t give meds unless really needed so had to read the label! Figuring out dosage while half asleep and trying to read all that tiny writing just to find where the directions are is not fun. She felt SO hot I resorted to giving her a bath to cool her down. It worked and she finally went to sleep around 3am. She was clingy and fussy all day today. My son was very helpful in irritating her as much as he could when I wasn’t looking, telling her what to do, or trying to steel my attention from her since she wouldn’t let me put her down. That didn’t stop me from trying to work, clean, cook, etc. I say trying because I was not very successful at anything today. But now, oh sweet ecstasy, now I’m going to bed and you can’t stop me!
