It's a Wonderful Life

Well for the second time this December the hubby and I cuddled up on the couch to watch It's a Wonderful Life. We were finally getting a break. The kids were in bed. It was quiet. Mikayla is my 8 year old who has the frequent stomach issues. This past month as I mentioned before we have all had them. There is a BAD bug in this house. I am not sure what it is but stomach aches, and nausea. Angel had a vomiting episode 2 weeks ago. She is better now. Well I never know how much to believe Mikayla since she ALWAYS has stomach issues. She wasn't feeling well and I knew it. I have an appointment for her on Friday to hopefully get things worked out. I figured if I had stomach aches this week then honestly she will probably feel even worse. So I planned on taking her in and that was that.

Unfortunately that kind of planning only really happens in my dreams. I heard a cough...then two. I told Jason (the hubby) that I better go check on the girls. I walked into their room only to see Mikayla sitting up, half asleep throwing up all over her bed. It was bad. That's all I can say. I sat there rubbing her back, telling her it was ok. Her bed was already destroyed and it was really too late to save anything. So I just tried to wait for it to end. Then I looked up to see Angel walking around the side of the bed in a daze....covered in puke. Yes. Mikayla threw up on her sister. I mean...all over her. She has long red hair and it was drenched. Her face, yes drenched. I yelled for Jason and he came running. He grabbed Angel while I tended to Mikayla. He got Angel into the tub and seriously she had it in her eyes...in her nose. UGH! I have never seen anything like it. They had been snuggling earlier and I thought it was cute! Angelina was falling asleep while we cleaned her in the tub. She thought she had thrown up but when she realized what happened we just got a huge "ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" in return. I love my girlies. They sure keep my days busy and honestly this is one of those things you will be telling your grandchildren some day!!

I so remember these days. You feel helpless when they don't feel good. Then there is all that bedding to launder and the clean up of the girls. Yep, I remember those days.

Big hug. :)
