Okay, today's a quickee. Last week I thought I was getting my shit together. I posted Monday and even got a Weekly Words Challenge up on Tuesday. That's about where I lost it. Everyday last week and this week has one activity or more on our calendar. Then this weekend my little one developed a lovely croupy cough. Now she's running a fever and has a nice viral rash on her little body. She got a good 6ish hours of sleep last night. Damned 12 hour cough medicine only lasts 6 hours. So since about 3am hubby and I have traded off hanging on the couch with her through the morning. She's had sherbert for breakfast, juice, hot tea, then finally popcicles, but the coughing has been relentless. It's finally lessening after a shower with a Shower Soother and her finally giving in and sucking on a cherry cough drop. Now if her fever would just break...

Poor Baby :-( I hate it when the kids are sick . . . especially coughs. Dude has been fighting one for a couple weeks . . . it's FINALLY getting better, just when I decided to take him to the doc. And that medicine sucks! You're right . . . only 6 hours. I've gone to giving them the 4-6 hour med so I can give them more in the middle of the night.

Hope your little one is feeling better soon!

Sorry to hear there is sickness at your house - and for the lack of sleep that comes with it. Hope everyone feels better soon.

Awe....hope she gets well soon. I heard a kid at the store with that same cough today and Carly started coughing this weekend but that's the only symptoms she has. Damn germs.

Tell her Carly says get well soon.

I hear ya'. Awful...and lacking in sleep. And, daily activities in addition to the normally full routine.

Hope your week tops out better!

Happy Monday!

Take care,

Ouch! For her with the cough, rash, fever... For you being the mommy of all that.

Poor kiddo. It's been a while since we've had coughs like that in my house, but the memories come flooding back now...
Hang in there! I hope her fever breaks soon and you can all get some rest.

Poor thing. :( Bug just got over something similar. It was a rough go for a few days there! I hope you and she can get some sleep.

My 15 year old has it--we're at 10 days sick and still counting. He missed almost a whole week of school.

I hope she feels better soon.
