Staying up all night used to be fun and exciting--usually entailing a concert, a cute new guy or a dance party followed by food and girl talk to the wee hours.
Unfortunately staying up all night these days means a sick kid. We had some sickies a week before spring break, then pretty healthy kids during spring break and suddenly yesterday I found myself with flu-like body aches and by evening Lamp was throwing up. At least sister is healthy I thought... until she joined the throw up party sometime in the middle of the night. Luckily the husband took the majority of the night shift since I was still coming off a sick day. Thankfully I'm feeling better. And little Lamp is finally sleeping... I really don't think she slept more than 30 minute increments last night. Poor thing. Looks like we're set for a day of TV, pedialite and chicken soup. I can handle that...
ps: If you have time watch this great video about a girl with autism overcoming some big obstacles... this Katy Perry song has been permanently endeared to my heart because of this video.
