Today was my first day with the kids by myself.  Zach started school today.  It actually went reasonably well, especially considering the start of the day.  First, none of us got good sleep last night.  Zora would not settle and I swear it felt like she fussed all night.  She kept us all awake to differing degrees (me the most, obviously, since I am the one actually dealing with her).  Tonight we have to figure out something different for sleeping.  I am not sure yet if it will be me and Zora in Zane’s bed, or the couch, or me attempting to sleep sitting up in my chair/loveseat.  I really wish we had a recliner…so much more comfortable to sleep sitting up with a baby on your lap.  My neck and shoulders hurt like heck today from cat naps sitting on the loveseat.  Zach and Zane have to get better sleep though…all of us cranky from lack of sleep is infinitely worse than just me feeling sleep deprived.

Zane also started the day by puking twice.  I think it was just sinus drainage that he coughed up and had no idea what to do with since there wasn’t a huge volume though.  He hasn’t had any other ’sick’ symptoms since then and is playing like normal, which further makes me believe it was just post-cold sinus drainage getting the better of him.

My ears are also popping all day and starting to hurt a bit.  I am hoping to make something spicy for supper because sometimes hot food can curb a throat/ear infection before it really takes hold.

Surprisingly, I am still in a good mood.  Probably because I still feel so much better than I did when I was pregnant that it isn’t phasing me too much.  lol.  Gosh, I knew I was sick when I was pregnant, but I don’t think I realized just how sick I was until I started feeling better.

  • Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better? — Jane Nelson
