I ****hate**** Today :-( (Page 1)

I got absolutely no sleep last night.
Jacob got into my bed shortly after 2 am, (after keeping me up til midnight) And wouldnt be still.. tossed and turned til after 6 in the morning.

Both the kids are sick... not just runny noses.. FLOODING noses. Caty is also sneezing, Jacobs got a cough.

Well.. now that i have a pounding headache from no sleep, i have the kids in the livingroom watching cartoons and playing with their toys.

Then, they both start with the diarrhea.

After i change Jacob, (it took me a good five minutes because he wouldnt stop squirming and putting his hands in it and spreading it all over himself and anything he could touch, including the carpet) I changed Caitlyn, who's diaper dung had spread like wildfire out onto her clothes and down her thighs.

While i remove the liquid from hell from my daughters body, Jacob has taken it upon himself to take my Desitin (a BRAND NEW TUBE i bought YESTERDAY mind you) and SQUEEZE its contents all over the room, infiltrating every nook and cranny, including all over the light beige carpet and himself.
So, at this point theres nothing i can do but scream at him to stop- to no avail.
I leave Caty still with poo creeping up her back, to get the tube of Butt Cream from my now rash-protected son. Caty then decides it would be a good idea to take off across the room, stark naked with poo up her backside, and JUMP INTO THE TOYBOX.

Oh.
My.
GOD.

Please, somebody put me OUT of my misery.

Now, im trying to put the kids to sleep for their naps. Jacob refuses to go to sleep. Find it to be a game of *Lets See How Many Times I Can Get Up And Jump Off My Bed Before Mom Loses Her Sanity*.

Please God, make my kids take a rare 2 hour nap so that i may rid my living room of its Desitin clothing, and wash and sanitize my childrens toys and free them from their fecal enslavement.

i gave them a dose if Dimetapp Cold and Cough.. Their pediatrician told me this..

if a 6 yr old gets 10mL, that equates to 1.7 mL per year of age.. so i gave jacob 4 mL since hes about 2 and a half, and i gave caty 2 mL since shes a little bigger than a normal 1 yr old.

Yeah its not helping. His nose is still running like the re-runs of Cops.

yeah i ran to the store and got them some pedialyte and some vitamin water. i wont give the kids gatorade or powerade theres too much sodium in it.

And yeah, with the nose.. it running means its not back up into his ears.. so yeah.

GAG

lol

kids are gross.

Like, what the hell posessed Jacob to smear fecal matter all over the place? Like, when he has a normal poopy diaper, he sticks his finger down his backside, pulls it our covered in the sweet nectar of his rear-end, and walks up to either me or Rob and goes *look, i poop!*

I took his diaper off and he stuck his finger in his diaper and got a nice piece and just licked it. I don't think he enjoyed it much though. He made like a sour face ...i literally gaged!
