UGH!

Well, folks it just went from bad to worse around here tonight. Last night, Tyler pooped in the bath tub. Tonight he gave me a special kind of bath...vomit! I noticed when I picked him up from school this afternoon he looked really pale. He was a bit fussy and clingy as we shopped for birthday gifts for the TWO birthday parties we were invited to attend this weekend. When we got home, he didn't care much for dinner. When we finished I gave him a bath and he started complaining of his belly hurting. It wasn't long after he was dressed until he coughed and got a bit choked. I did the "cupped hand" move that every mother is ever so familiar with, I'm sure. I caught a hand full. About the time I reached to grab the towel I had just dried him with, the flood gates opened and I got my vomit bath. I felt so bad for the poor little fella. Thank goodness hubby came to the rescue and took him to the kitchen and began to strip him down while I did the same. He's asleep now in the recliner. He got sick again a little bit ago and then went right back to sleep.

Just as I began to type this post Shelby came running out of her room to the bathroom. I went in there to check on her and she began to vomit as well. *Sigh*
At least, this one is big enough to go to the bathroom and she made it this time, so there was no clean up this go around.

I have a feeling it's going to be a long night...

UPDATE:
It's 11:30pm and my children have been alternating their vomit schedule. I sent hubby to bed and told him I'd take the first shift. I'll keep running back and forth as long as I can do it while he rests and then I'll let him take over. So far they've not been sick at the same time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Oh NO!

I so know how you feel - it's the absolute worst when they're little and so sick :-(

Hope they settle down soon and you can get a good night's sleep.

Awww...sorry the little ones aren't well. Maybe this is a good reason to excuse yourselves from the parties this weekend? :)

Oh no! Sickness is never fun to deal with, especially two at once... I hope they are feeling better soon!
