I think we've had more than our fair share of being sick the last few months. Especially Rowan and now Chan is getting up there too. My sister is telling me my kids are always sick and I tried to defend it at one point. I won't anymore. You're right Avry :( We've got a house full of sickies. It all started last night with Chandler coming into our room. I went to put him back to bed and he just stood by his bed. Then I stepped in it. Need anymore of a visual? ;) I got Marshall up to get Chan changed and proceeded to start working on his room. Half hour later, I was ready to put him back in bed. He kept looking at Marsh and saying, "Oh no....so sad." I'd be sad too. Luckily we'd rented Kung Fu Panda and it was a great distraction at 4 am.
I finally got him back in bed only to have him throw up on everything 15 mins later. Into the tub he went. He sat in the tub for about a half hour and didn't want to get out. He finally stopped throwing up enough to fall asleep. Not 2 minutes after my head hit the pillow I heard Rowan crying. Why? Congested of course, (lucky boy has the little Nielson nasal passages so he gets congested extremely easily) and his asthma was flared up. He just finished up his 4th round of antibiotics and I bet he's working on another ear infection. I'm not going to be surprised if he ends up with tubes in his ears.
After almost 2 hours of being up, we all got some sleep. Chan woke up this morning, couldn't keep anything down, and had horrible diarrhea. Poor boy would start running around saying, "Oh no.....stop it! Oh no....!" everytime he got nauseated and threw up. Makes my heart ache. We stayed in our pajamas until it was evident that Chandler needed another bath (his 3rd in the last 12 hours.) Chan finally kept down some bread and powerade and both Chan and Rowan are finally napping and feeling a LITTLE better.
I thought I would start doing some deep disinfecting today, especially all the toys. It's been a few weeks since I'd gone through all of them and cleaned them well. I have been washing the small stuff in hot soapy water and wiping down the other stuff with disinfecting wipes. Lots of laundry today too, wiping down doors, handles, etc. Just wondering what kinds of disinfecting products you all are using and if there is some great product I need to be using? I have the lysol wipes and some Melaleuca botanical disinfectant. What else can I do? What do you do to help keep your home germ free? It seems hard to keep up with two little kids and I need some ideas. I don't want sick kids all winter.
