For reference, I started writing this post on 6th Nov. However, November has turned out to be a 'November Nightmare'! Both kids have been suffering with one illness after another. Two kids ill at the same time is tough and something I never considered when we were thinking about how lovely it would be to have another soft bundle of joy...what fluffy cloud in cuckoo land were we sitting on???!!!

So, today is 26th Nov and I think we're finally past the worst of it. Harriet is still a little snuffly and Drew did puke up (again) on Jerry last night, but she's not coughing anymore which is a massive relief.

Anyway, here's the original post...

We should DEFINITELY buy shares in nappies!!

Every day brings a new challenge, but today was one of THOSE days.

Summarised version so as not to bore you...
  • Day started well. Went to SureStart centre with Drew and Harriet
  • Harriet stayed awake and Drew had fun with her friends
  • Left early to visit the Doctors for 2nd time for Harriet as she has a nasty rash on her face and neck and the eczema cream prescribed two days ago only made it worse
  • Different Doc said it wasn't eczema but some kind of 'virus' and to monitor it
  • We've been monitoring it for a few weeks, so asked to be referred to a specialist, but Doc gave us mild steroid cream instead and if it doesn't go away by next week, they will refer us
  • Went home, gave Drew her lunch which resulted in her being put in the naughty corner twice for throwing cutlery and food (Barney the K9 hoover cleaned it all up, but that's not the point!)
  • Put Drew to bed. By this time, Drew has had 3 runny poohey nappies. Harriet lagging behind with 1
  • Drew took an hour to get to sleep, only to wake up an hour later having coughed so hard and woken up AND had another runny pooh and been sick
  • Harriet has only had 10minutes sleep by this time, having woken by Barney barking at a delivery man who rung our doorbell
  • The rest of the day is a misty blur of pooh, puke and tears!
Now you can see why I chose THIS title for this post!
