Yesterday was rough. After a weekend of being sick, and the kids being sick, I was completely exhausted, and I didn’t handle it very well. (I’m also feeling kind of uncomfortable about having written about it, but if I’m going for honesty, I guess I’ve at least achieved that!)
Today is better. I slept all night. The boys slept all night. We got up at 6:30, and I was feeling a lot better, even then. B was well enough to go to school today (kind of — after a meltdown at 6:30 and almost falling asleep at the dinner table, I’m not sure he really WAS well enough for school) and Liam and I got to stay in and do nothing today while we work on recovering.
Still, by nap time I felt like it was 10:00 at night. B, who has made the transition away from diapers for his waking hours, wanted to try napping without a diaper today. I was exhausted, and the thought of cleaning all the bed sheets didn’t appeal to me, but I also don’t want to discourage him, so he gave it a try . . . and was completely successful. (Score one for not discouraging him. As a side note, I am really proud of him.)
Today went well. I’m still getting over being sick, as is B. Liam is still sick. I opted for ordering dinner instead of cooking, and we skipped bath time because both kids were so wiped out. But today was peaceful and fun. We had a good day.
