Sick kid making me crazy

I am stuck on the couch with plenty of non productive contractions and a lot of back and sciatic nerve pain. So I can't do much with my kids today.

On top of that, my 3.5 yr old is sick. She doesn't have a fever, which means she's not lethargic and laying around, but she's covered in snot, sneezing, coughing and all the mucus makes her gag when she coughs. This of course means no outside, which she can't do anyway because it's chilly and damp and rainy anyway.

So, because she's uncomfortable and sick, but not tired and laying around, she's just all over into EVERYTHING. She doesn't want to lay down and watch tv. She doesn't want to sit and color. She doesn't want try to do a paper chain for halloween.

Instead, she wants to run around and push her little sister over. She wants to climb on the top of the couch and play with the locks on the windows. She wants to eat...but not more than a bite or two of anything, and then tells me she's "so hungwy!" again and again. She wants to swing pillows in a circle and see how much stuff she can hit (cat, sister, couch etc etc)

She does want to help me cook...but I can't let her do that because she's sick and sneezing and so on and so on!

And now she and the 2 yr old have knocked over and broken and wrecked the changing table. Good thing we got it for free 4 yrs ago. We were planning to get a new one anyway, just hadn't found one yet.

Re: Sick kid making me crazy

And now DH is emailing saying he is thinking about coming home sick. Cause I really want to deal with a man cold on top of all of this. *sigh* DH JUST got his email...on the first...that he's out of his 6 month probation period. So he just, on Monday, became eligible to even call in sick! It will look SO good to have him leave early on like the first day he is able to...just days before he has to leave because his wife is having a baby.

*sigh*

All I want to do is curl up on the couch and moan.

Re: Sick kid making me crazy

Thanks.

I can't say the day has gotten much better. DH did come home. Which, I do get that he's sick. It's going around the family, I am not blaming him personally, etc etc. But he walks in right before nap time and that completely eliminated nap time. Then, instead of keeping the 3 yr old from being crabby and onry, I then have to keep her off of HIM, because he doesn't want to go to bed, he wants to sit and eat three bowls of cereal.

Then, I have to go pick up the teen from school, because she stayed after for a club, and she gets in the car and immediately begins to melt down about every little thing. She's stressed because she's taking the SAT on Saturday, she's stressed out about having a new baby in the house, and then she's stressed because she's got her drivers test coming up and she doesn't think she can take it because she doesn't have a job yet etc etc. So all that combines to make her fuse as short as mine, and that makes for a not fun household.

It's not been a good day. I wish this baby would decide to show up and give me a 2 day vacation with room service and good pain meds lol
