And then there was today

It started at 1 am when Jr came crying to my door and barfed all over before I could get it open. ElCid rushed her to the toilet and I held her hair and he looked at the bedroom. Luckily all the mess in there was contained to a t-shirt that was on her bed amongst all sorts of stuff. How do you train a collector not to be a collector? I'm afraid she's going to be one of those people who can never throw anything away!

Anyhow we got her all cleaned up and settled on the couch and her bed stuff in the washer when George woke up crying that she needed her thisie. At first I thought she was crying for her sissy not a name we EVER use so I was confused but after listening to her for a minute I realized she wanted this her pacifier! ElCid and I just gaped at each other for a minute and then I went and grabbed a pacifier that had been left by a visiting baby and held it out to ElCid. He shook his head no and I went to bed. I was willing to hand over anything at that point to go back to sleep but he wasn't, mysteriously enough less than 5 minutes later George was crawling into my bed with the nipple part of a bottle in her mouth. He doesn't really have that much more stamina than I do.

George coughed on and off for most of the rest of the night and every time Jr made a noise my body tensed for the retching noise but it never happened. This morning when it was time to get up and go to church I just couldn't do it. 2 of them couldn't go to church anyways and I have no idea if ElCid was going or not (I'm not allowed to ask) so I just made the choice to stay in bed. Yes, I wimped out. I made the easier choice and today I'm going to try to not feel guilty about it!

Hopefully the excitement is over and today will continue on peacefully, hopefully!

Just reading about Jr making sounds and you tensing, brings back way to many memories. I hope everyone is feeling better soon and that the stomach sickness doesn't spread. Love ya.
