1 little, 2 little, 3 little sick boys

When it rains it pours at the Macdonald house.

Why is it that if your child is going to be sick to their stomach, they have to do it between 1 & 4am?

It all started with Jacob sometime around 1am. The good news...he made it to the bathroom and there was no mess to clean up. The bad news...after he woke me up, I woke Joe up but I never got out of bed and don't recall any conversations about this episode.

Next it was Aaron's turn. There is nothing like waking at 3am to the sound of a child crying, coughing and losing their lunch. And the best part, he lost his lunch right out side my bedroom door. What a mess to clean up at 3am. Joe and I spent the next hour getting up every 15 mins for a different child. Aaron then Jacob...Jacob then Aaron. And of course it all woke Tyler up and he decided he needed to get in on the good times.

Needless to say, it was a long night and is working out to a grouchy morning. Jared seems to be the only one to have escaped the horrid bug...knock on wood.... And I have 3 boys whom I am refusing to feed breakfast due to lack of a replay of last night. Poor Joe had to go back to work this morning. I'm sure he is exhausted as well.

We are hoping this is the same bug that has been going around and passes within 24 hours. Wish us luck!

  1. YUCK! I agree...why do kids only get sick and throw up in the middle of the night? It's a mystery! We had a 1 week stretch a couple years ago where Jaxon would throw up all over himself and his bed in the middle of the night...but not wake up and cry, so every morning he and everything in his bed would have a disgusting stinky throw up crust! YUCK!!!!! I feel you sister!
