All Night Long

So you are probably wondering what I did all night long. It was not fun, it was not exciting. I was awake almost every hour on Sunday night due to a 5 year old that was constantly sick and a 13 month old that decided to keep waking.
It all started around 12:30 am. Aislynn woke up first. I went into her room and got her back to sleep after some rocking and a quick nursing session. Then in my sleep I felt a tap on my arm. It was McKenna. She said that she got sick and threw up in her bed. I was very tired at this point because I think I had just gotten back to sleep. As I go into her room to survey the damage I could smell what was coming. I stepped on wet spots as I entered the room. I turned on a small light, trying to let Kambry sleep and I could see it all over her rug. I stepped up on Kambry's bed so I could see on Kenna's(note to self: bunkbeds are not good for sick kids). As I peeked over the edge I saw throw up all over McKenna's sheets and all over her side rails. I guess we were being kinda loud because then I heard Kambry waking. I am glad she did because then I noticed that McKenna had gone overboard and poor Kambry almost got thrown up on. Luckily, it was just lower than her legs so I preceded to strip both beds and set the girls up on the couch. I put a load in the laundry and went back to bed. About an hour and a half later I hear McKenna coughing in the living room. I jumped out of bed as quick as I could but it was too late. She threw up on the couch. What was I thinking putting her on the couch? Now I know, any sick kid should be on the floor. So, that's what I did. I made her a palate on my floor next to my bed. It worked much better. An hour and a half after getting back to sleep once again McKenna woke up coughing. We went to the kitchen to get some water and then once more the kitchen floor got a present. Yes, the dose of pepto bismol I gave her ended up on our floor. Another change of clothes and we were finally back to bed.
Out of all the years I have had the girls I have never had such a long night of throwing up and cleaning up. I hope it never happens again. McKenna is feeling better now. We could never determine what caused all that sickness but it seems to have passed.
On another note, I will post some pictures I took of a girl I work with soon. They turned out really cute. Sorry for the long story but I think I will want to look back at that night in case I have to deal with that again.

UGH!!! We have had a night or two like that. I DREAD when it will happen again. Hopefully everyone is on the mend now and will stay healthy.

On a side note, I got the flower clips today and LOVE them! It's purple day at school tomorrow so Kinz is wearing a pair. Hopefully she'll let me take a few pictures. Thanks again!!!

Ah I'm so sorry to hear your night went so terribly. I'm glad that she's feeling ok right now though. I hope you don't have to go through another night like that one again either.
