I just wanna sleep...

We've had a rough few days. Thursday night, Kacey fell off the slide and landed on her head. NOT the big slide that was just put together, the small Little Tykes one. She was sitting at the top ready to go down and just fell backwards!!! I was right there, but not close or fast enough. Landed on her head, right by our flower bed, on a brick. HMM, of course this was just about an hour before bedtime so I didn't want her to fall asleep if she had a concussion (I'm a paranoid mother). She had 3 bumps, big ones, and she was bleeding. I felt terrible, so I didn't sleep well because I kept bringing her in our bed so I could hold her and feel her breathing. Then Matthew put her back in her bed, but I kept going in her bedroom to kinda wake her up and make sure she was okay all through the night. She's fine now, but she's got a gash on the back of her head that will probably be there for a few months. It's covered by her curls, so it's not too obvious.

So, we get over that. Kacey can still say all her words, and she's not walking funny or anything so I figure she's okay. Then Kylie gets super sick. She was complaining that her tummy hurt at bedtime, which if you have a youngster... you know better than to fall for that. So we just said yeah yeah, rub your tummy, all better. She ended up throwing up for 3 hours that night. Not fun. It was everywhere, all over me, her room, the bathroom. Enough about that. We were able to conclude that it was from the nacho cheese at the Target Snack Bar. Anyway, when she finally laid back down to sleep, I slept on her floor next to her just in case she'd wake up again. (My husband's freaking out right now.... yes, he offered at least 10 times to sleep there instead of me, but I wasn't going to sleep well if I was in bed in my room or on the floor in her room because I'd be worried about her, so I just stayed there). She's much better now, she's a little sleepy because I'm keeping her on a bland diet, but she really wanted to go to Church and she was just fine so now.... I just want to sleep!!! :)

And the Mommy of the Year Award goes to.....Nicole Boyd! You are a terrific and caring mother! I think you deserve to hear that after all the worry you were put through last night. I haven't experienced tummy aches that turn into a barf fest yet but I know I will:) And I am sure that I will be writing them on my blog! Haley has taken a number of spills head first or face first off the bed and couch. Kacey's sounds a little bit worse in this case. I hope both girls feel better soon! Get some sleep sweetie!

ooohhh! I just hate it when the little ones ae sick. it's so hard to help them, and as much as I hate throwing up, I would so much prefer to be the one who's sick and not the kids.
I'm the same way when one of the kids bonks their heads. I pull out the flashlight and check their eyes every few minutes to see if they're dilating, and I'm like, "sorry, no nap for a while".
LOL
Glad to hear everyone is feeling better.

I wondered what the marks were on Kacey's head. Poor girl! Have you seen the throw up comforter they use on John and Kate plus 8?
