I feel like I have gone back in time a few years to when Zach was an infant. The constant calling for me, the middle of the night wake ups, and the feeling of helplessness in not being able to figure out what exactly is wrong. Only this time I have two big boys sitting on the couch, or calling me from their beds, and although they can talk they have taken on a whining that will not quit! If ever there was a time when I thought for a second about having another child (we all know that this would not/could not happen), this sickness would take that feeling away from anyone! I love my boys, please don't get me wrong, but I also love the routine that we have gotten into now that they are older. I also love my sleep. I never did well with the lack of sleep that babies brought on. This sickness has thrown off our routine and sent us back to infanthood.
Needless to say, we are home again today. I was all ready to send Kevin to school this morning because yesterday he had improved so much, but he still has a cough and I don't want him sharing those germs with his class. So hopefully we are on our way back to normal and tomorrow they will both be in school and I will be at work. It's been a long week and it's only Tuesday!
