Last night was rough. Here's the background...today we have parent-teacher conferences, so if there is any night I needed to get sleep it was last night. And of course last night was the night that I didn't get any sleep. It is all Rex's fault...poor little guy.
He loves to sleep in our bed and will often cry out for us around 1 am and because we are suckers for him, we totally let him join us. Well, last night, he was crying for real...because he was very sick. And we didn't know it until it happened. Any of you parents out there know what I am talking about...yep...little Rex has a stomach virus.
Not two minutes after getting into our bed, he throws up VIOLENTLY. All over our bed, sheets, bedspread, pillowcases, his PJs, even my PJs. And the smell...my goodness, it smelled like a frat house after a all-night beer-pong party. Eww...
So we get out of bed, take off the sheets, put on new sheets, get Rex fixed, etc. Finally we can get back to bed. Now I can't sleep for being all stressed about Rex. I am also stressed because I won't be able to sleep. Blegh.
You know where this is going, right? By the time I finally fall back asleep (around 4 am)...Rex wakes up again...and again pukes everywhere...but thankfully not as bad as the first time. Out comes the towels, out comes a new shirt for rex, and out comes another set of PJs for me. Sigh.
I think when all is said and done I got maybe 4 hours of sleep...down a lot from my normal 8. Ugh. I am doing okay right now (there is a wee break between parents so I can blog) but still...
Needless to say, I did not take a photo of my outfit this morning. I had great plans for my beautiful peacock maggie jacket, but alas, it deserves a better Dina when it gets worn.
Wish me luck. I hope Rex gets better soon...I hate it when he doesn't feel well. :(
