Both boys hit rock bottom. I don’t know how I would have handled them and the lack of sleep alone with Troy still in New York.
Blake was so sick with a fever, cough, and congestion that he literally never even sat up between nap time and bed time one evening. He woke up multiple times during the night and I could barely keep up with the Tylenol.
Then there was Nash. He had probably the worst week of his life. He wasn’t sick, but my sweet baby that has slept through the night since he was two months old all of a sudden started getting up twice a night. He was inconsolable, sometimes screaming his lungs out for an hour and a half. It didn’t help that I was his roomie for the week since I let my mom have my room. It’s one thing to listen to the cries from across the hall, but to be in the same room with a pillow over my head is another story. Nash is demonstrating all of the signs of teething; interrupted sleep, constant drool (resulting in a terrible rash around his mouth), pulling his ears, gnawing on everything, congestion, and overall fussiness, but there are no signs of swollen gums or tooth buds popping through. Blake didn’t get any teeth till 10 months so that is what I am expecting with Nash. I almost wish that he was teething though so that I could at least solve the mystery of his abnormal behavior during this awful week! (Sorry for being such a downer. Just keeping it real on the good ol’ blog.)
So, I had a lot of fun outings in mind for my mom and me, but due to the circumstances, we had to skip a few plans. My mom and I didn’t even work on any projects which is very unusual for our visits. I sure hope she will want to visit us again after all the uproar.
What a horrible thing, good thing your mom was there. I remember when JJ was gone in FL for like 4 days the kids barely slept at all and neither did I. It was so hard to do it alone and be on no sleep. So good thing you had your mom and you were able to get out and do some fun things.
It was still fun to spend girl time with you and entertain the boys (I guess they entertained me)! I can't wait to come back!
