The Pukersons - Episode II: Attack of the Germs aka She listens TOO well (sometimes)

Now we come to Tuesday night. (Zachary went to bed at 5:45.... for the night.... and stayed that way until after 7:15!). The night seemed to go fairly well. Zach slept through. Alex coughed a couple times, but we didn't think much of it.... until the morning..... She had thrown up during the night and it was not quite everywhere, but pretty close. She had to go right in the tub. When Daddy asked her about it, she said she threw up in the middle of the night, but she wasn't allowed to get out of bed unless she had to pee. (A rule we finally made after repeated exits from the bed for various reasons). I'm glad she was respecting the "rule", but I feel like a mean Mommy! Now she knows there are exceptions to the rule.

Just after we had gotten Alex bathed and cleaned up, Zachary - who we thought was all better - threw up again! It had been over 24 hours since the last episode. Not good. Jean-Paul was now going to have to look after two sick kids. I spent the morning "working" from home (see pictures) before going to a meeting in Hamilton in the afternoon. I did get a little bit accomplished before the group cuddle. It's funny how even the "Daddy-centric" Zoo wants his Mommy when he's not feeling well. OK, still not all the time, but much more than usual.By the time I left, Jean-Paul was starting to not feel well.....
