Well last night was a doozie. Monday night that it.
Alice has a bad cough now, it kicked in Monday night around 7pm. She was down for a nap before her last feeding and going to bed for the night and she woke up crying, had a big spit up and then started coughing. Uggg.
We got her settled into bed but still the cough continued through the night. Poor thing. Alice was up again at midnight and it took until 1am-ish to get her back down.
Then Miles came into our room at 3am. I got him settled into our bed with a tub of kleenex, poor guy had a faucet nose.
Then I was back up at 5am with Alice and finally moved down to the couch with her sleeping on me after I fed her.
Miles came down around 6am trying to find me and ended up falling asleep at my feet on the couch.
So, with all the places in our house to sleep on a bed or on a couch; it was Alice, Miles and I crammed onto one couch passing kleenexes and soothing coughing babes.
Tuesday Graham went to school but I took Alice and Miles in to the doctor to get checked out. Miles was a trooper during the whole thing and was pretty excited to wear a face mask at the office and play pirate. Alice checks out okay, just a cold, which is a huge relief. She’s got a pretty big cough for such a little gal. The rest of the day was getting the boys their lunch, then down for naps. Alice slept on my chest for the rest of her naps for the day – that sure brings back memories!
Needless to say I’m one exhausted mama and ready for the rest of this to pass through the house fast!
