The whole house smells like vomit. And diarrhea. And, rightfully so.
Aleni's bed had been vomited in. 3 times. Noah's bed has been vomited in. Once... so far. Our bedroom has been vomited in. Two times. The kitchen has been vomited in, once. Noah's floor has been covered in vomit--twice. The office, check. We've really only managed to avoid the livingroom--but, I'm sure everyone is carrying a bit about on their feet, so--you fill it in. Eww and grossness. Add to that the stinky diaper every hour or so...and you have a regular fest of explosive sights, smells and goop.
Just before typing these words, I finished cleaning up Noah's before-going-to-bed-gift. Yes, he came whimpering to me, grabbed my sleeve and let 'er rip. Do you know how hard it is to clean slightly-processed ramen noodle soup from the carpet? And your own shorts and flip-flops?
Aleni started vomiting Monday around 7 pm and then vomited about every hour until 4 am. She finally was able to sleep around 5 am. No sleep for momma! We slept ok last night. (Taking turns on the floor in her room). She seemed a little better today, just diarrhea--but then ended the evening with an emptying of the stomach on the kitchen floor.
Noah has seemed fine--just a little tired--until he woke up from his nap. He woke up, filled his crib with the fun stuff, and then his bedroom floor. He seemed chipper after that--until repeated the stomach-emptying about an hour ago.
My poor babies.
Poor me. ;) I have a stack of laundry about 4 foot high (not exaggerating) to fold put away. Thankfully, we had sun today so I could somewhat keep on top of the washing/drying. I need to finish scrubbing this newest spot on the carpet. I need to douse all the floors with bleach water. I haven't changed out of these clothes that have been spit-up on maybe 3 times. And a shower? Whoooaaa. That seems overwhelming right now. I would like some supper, but don't want to make anything. Boohoo for me, right?
On the happy side--my bro Ben gets in bright and early tomorrow morning. I hope my hunch is WRONG and that we don't have a long night of cleaning up messes ahead of us. And, I hope everyone gets better so we can just focus on enjoying Uncle Ben time! And, I really hope Uncle Ben doesn't get any unwanted souvenirs from his niece and nephew!!
Over and out.
