Diary of a sick kid.

The house projects have come to a drastic stop because our little one is sick. The sniffles started Friday morning, it was a full blown cold on Saturday, by Sunday he was having diarrhea, which caused us to leave the Superbowl Party early! (Go Giants - by the way!) On Sunday night my husband was reading to him before bed and screams downstairs to me to come help him, Aiden had just thrown up everywhere!

When he says everywhere, I mean everywhere. It was all over the rocking chair, covered the majority of the floor that was exposed, even hit the crib from across the room! YUCK.

I whipped out the shot spot and started to get to work. It also just so happened that Monday was my laundry day and he was wearing the last clean pair of pajamas that were clean. Luckily, I had put poopy pants in the wash along with some other things when we got home, so we only had to wait about twenty minutes for the jammies to dry! After giving him some water, cleaning the room, it was back to bed he went!

He slept through the night, but was still sick in the morning. It wasn't until nap time the true nastiness of a sick baby came out. He had a massive explosion. Need I not go into details. Needless to say, bumpers, quilt, blankets, sheets, mattress pad, and every stuffed animal had to go in the wash. I went to town with Green Works on his crib disinfecting everything, even the mattress. The window was open to air out the smell, a candle was lit, and it still smelled.

We were supposed to have out carpets cleaned last Friday, but due to the snow storm, they cancelled. THANK GOODNESS!

So, for those of you with little kids, getting them to eat the BRAT (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) diet when you have a picky little eater is impossible. We chose to go the au natural route of Culturelle for Kids. It is an amazing probiotic to help get tummies back to normal!

All he wants are Oreo cookies and spaghettios. When I say no... this is what I get....

But, because I am a giant pushover for my sick little nugget, I say fine. Eat what you need to eat. And I get this...

Much better! At least even at his sickest, he can still smile!
