So Morgan ended up sick this past weekend...mostly high fever combined with extra crankiness. I took her to EZ Care yesterday (I LOVE that place, it never takes long) and she has an ear infection. Are these contagious? Because if they are, I'm going to give a couple of kids in child care at our gym the stink-eye...especially the one that was listless and sitting on the lap of the lady in charge.
Another fun fact this weekend - Michael decided to work overtime...night shifts. He always calls to get my permission, usually something along the lines of 'it's good money and I'd really like to replace the windows in our house, they are 40 years old and in horrible condition and it would help our heating bill stay under control, but I understand if you don't want me to work, I can tell them no....'
So I've been stuck at home at night alone with a sick kid. We all know that kids are always worse at night. Yesterday during the day Morgan was running in circles and laughing, even though she still have a fever. Michael gave me a look like 'sooo you said she was sick all night and you got 4 hours of sleep...' so last night I took video of her throwing a lovely fit on the couch and texted it to him. She didn't want to be held. She didn't want me to leave her but kept mule-kicking me if I was too close. She didn't want her blanket but cried if it wasn't close to her. She didn't want any clothes on. She wanted sippy but then didn't want to drink it.
Have you ever realized that dealing with babies is sometimes like dealing with drunks?
'are you hungry? are you sleepy? are you sick? why are you crying? what can I do?!!! talk to me! I can't understand you....NO DON'T FALL ASLEEP THERE!'
Yeah drunks are as fun as babies.
Anyways, for the past 2 nights Morgan has ended up in our bed, which is fine with me when I'm here alone. I'm 99.9% sure that all evil things that lurk in the night won't come into a bedroom with 2 people asleep there; only if 1 person is there.
But then Michael comes home from working all night and tries to slip in bed...and our queen size bed should be plenty big enough for 2 & 1/2 people but trying to sleep with a toddler is insane....just check out this chart:
All of a sudden one of the cats popped out of the curtains onto the train table and looked at me like 'oh, hi; didn't see you there.' and I wanted to yell 'run wooden train people! kitty has eyes set to laser mode!' but obviously I couldn't yell because I had a sleeping sick kid on my lap, and luckily kitty was only after a half eaten stale hotdog bun hidden in the train station. I posted this picture on Facebook and several people commented that poor Elmo must have been the first victim, but no, don't you dare feel sorry for Elmo, because earlier that evening he was perched on the bridge catching trains and throwing them onto the floor.
After reading my blog I've had several friends and family members tell me I need to get out more...I have NO idea why they feel that way.
