not to mention the fact that dd got up for the day at 11:15 last night and only cat napped 10-15 minutes at a time until 5 am! I told James his teacher wouldn't be there today to try to prevent a big tantrum at school and he got VERY upset and it lasted close to an hour. Very unlike him, crying and whining etc. Usually his tantrums are a few minutes of screaming and he's on his way. I don;t know if he thought she was gone forever or what. I tried to explain she would be back on Thursay when he went back to school. I told him Miss Vicky, Miss Julie, and Mis Janice would be there and Mrs. Sheilds (his speech therapist) was going to teach class. Then he started crying a river saying he didn't want to go to school because Miss Julie was upset with him. He pushed his breakfast away and refused to eat and sat there and cried and cried. I kept telling him Mrs. Shaw would be there the next day he went to school, but that made it worse. So, I gave up and said he couldn't go to school. He cried for a bit more and slowly ate breakfast and by this time the other two were upset because he was. Fun stuff, lol. Then when he was done eating he asked if he could go to school. So I got his uniform told him to put it on and ran him to school. I took him in myself to talk with the aids (Miss Julie wasn't there today go figure) anyway Vicky said she doesn't recall anything that happened yesterday where he would think Juile was upset with him. And his teacher put him in the van yesterday, and didn't mention anything unusual. I think he was happy after Vicky told them they were going to play and paint and build houses with popsickle sticks. He ran off to play on the playground before I could turn around and tell him "goodbye". They do their recess before class starts so he was off running around with a little boy before I could start the van.

My dd will not nap at all during the day unless I hold her. I got so desperate just to be able to pee and eat lunch I let her cry it out. She went over two hours each freaking time. I was so frazzled by then I was going to have a nervous breakdown! Now at night once I finally get her to sleep, I'll put her in her crib and she's up for the freaking day at 1:30 am. I tried laying on the floor with her but she just hits me (playing) climbs on me and rubs slimey fingers she's been sucking on all over my face while pulling hand fulls of my hair. This morning by 5:30 am I was about to lose it. I put her in the crib with toys and she screamed until dh got up. But screamed even more when he picked her up. It's now it's 8 am and she's so tired she's melting down and I can't get her to sleep by nursing, stroller or car rides. I'm seriously at my wits end with her! No one but mommy can hold her too. She'll scream until she can't breat if any one including dh tries.
I can't make plans, I can't clean, I can't get on the floor and play with my two other kids because it's all about her being fussy and clingy all day. My 4 yo even begs with her to stop crying!

It started with Christoph getting a 104F fever. Then from then on the other two had 101F fevers. By morning Christoph was hot again. But the other two were fine. Then all 3 had fevers again in the evening...fine in the morning. Then James had a high fever before bed and the other two were at 101F and all 3 better this morning. Now to see if they have a fever by bed tonight. Only symptoms besides fever was vomiting by Christoph on Friday evening. Oh yeah, Friday...I was cooking dinner and the electric went out. It was out for a few hours and the food was all ruined and had to be tossed. Hubby had to go get take out. By then Christoph was up to eating a TINY bit of dinner against my better judgment. But he did keep it all down that time.

We've been busy. Or more like I have been. It seems like the last 3 1/2 weeks or so we've been sick. I ended up having to nebulize all 3 kids and myself for some nasty respiratory virus. Then I got a pretty bad sinus infection, requiring 14 days of antibiotics. Some nasty med too! It make you think you were sucking on bug spray all day and night because of the taste. The pharmacist said it would do that though. Ick!
James stayed home from school yesterday because he had another fever. But it wasn't too bad I guess, because he played hard all day long. I hope none of the other kids get it. The aid at James' school said fevers were going around.
My finger that is supposidly fine (for over two months) is still hurting. The new Dr I saw gave me an order to get it re-xrayed but I haven't had time to fit it in.
