Busy Weekend

I know it's been a while since I've been on here, but I've been busy. All last week, one by one, every member in my house got the stomach flu. First was my 3 year old, she was a champ with it, but I had to stay up all night with her. She would ran to the bathroom and do her business, and then be fine and go back and lay down until it was time to go again. My 11 year old was worse! He got sick and every time he would go to the bathroom he would bang on the door yelling "mom!" I would run over there and he would be saying how there is something wrong, and hold my hand. He would cry and want to me to lay with him in bed. It was just strange how my 3 year old took it better than he did.

Friday rolls around and I get it! Not bad, actually I didn't throw up at all, just had a bad stomach acke. I got lucky!! Friday night my husband got it just as bad as the kids. He was up all night long, and then went to work the next morning. Now he's a trooper!! Not only that, but we had an All Night Softball Tournament we had to attend Saturday night. He made it until 5 am with that one, need to say he was exhausted Sunday!! Oh, and Sunday at 10 am he actually made it to his baseball game!!

So, now everyone is better, thank goodness. Saturday night we had our Annual Michael Day Memorial C0-Ed Softball Tournament to Benefit MDA. We had a great turn out, and made lots of money!!! This is what we do every year in honor of my late brother. Those all night games are tough!! I only made it until 5, but the rest of my family made it until it was over at 7 am. I had to go pick up the baby so I needed to get a little rest before my day started with her. She ended up going to my cousin's house for the night. She's only been around her twice so she ended up freaking out on her!! She is only 3 months old, so I didn't think she would be aware of her mom and dad not being around yet. She cried for an hour straight, wouldn't take her bottle, wouldn't take anything!! Finally my cousin called me and I had to go get her. I got there and held her, she calmed down and drank her bottle. Then I stayed until she passed out. After that she never knew I had left. I still wasn't sure if it was us she wanted or she had a bad tummy acke.

The next day I took her over to my parents house where my sister and her boys were, and my cousin from Texas was in town so she and her two kids were there. I tell you what, every time someone picked her up she started crying!! Not even my mom could hold her!! So weird!! My sister thinks that it dramatised her when she went to my cousins, and now she thinks every time someone holds her I am leaving again. I felt so bad!! I still can't believe she is doing this at 3 months, I thought maybe 6 months, but not 3!! I guess I was wrong. Not sure what to do with this, my other kids were never like that. Not even know, heck half the time they would rather be at my sisters, or my parents, not with me!! Oh well, I guess I just won't be able to leave her very much. I'm fine with that :)


  1. Wow,you have been really busy!!

    Don't worry almost all kids don't wanna be with their parents. Most of them rather be at another place where they get spoiled! lol

  2. Lol!!! I know!! That's what grandma's and aunt's are for!!

  3. This is the case with children around.It kind of a therapy soothing and calming them when they are sick and scared .And they need the mothers love especially during sickness.
