Maybe it is b/c I am half Puerto Rican but I've always been hugely superstitious. Last night was a lovely evening and we really had such a good time. We got the kids to bed early and I wrapped up everything and got into bed by 10:30. But I couldn't sleep... I just had a HORRIBLE feeling something bad was coming. I took a sleeping pill... it didn't work... so I took another... I finally drifted off into a Benadryl stupor when I awoke to the oh so HORRIBLE wretching noise... BLAH! Poor Chris got soooo sick and has spent the whole day in bed today or worse. His whole family has been passing around this horrendous stomach virus (so far 7 have come down with it) and so now I just have this horrible feeling of a new foreboding: I CAN'T GET SICK!!!!! Or worse, my Nanny better not get sick!!!! Or even WORSE THAN THAT what would happen if we both got sick???? Or the most worse scenario at all WHAT IF THE KIDS GET SICK????? Hopefully this is just silly worrying not another omen... just in case I washed all our emergency crib/tot bed sheets so I am prepared for the worse.
So if you are wondering if having Chris sick was bad for me? YES, yes it was! I am so spoiled at night that he deals w/colicky Callum (he gets lonely in his crib). Between Callum, and being worried about Chris I think I slept 3 hrs. Today was logjammed w/appointments and "must do's" so there was no time to feel sorry for myself and of course Harm woke me up at the butt crack of dawn (obviously he went to bed way way too early last night). I've got through everything in a coma. In fact I didn't realize I had Harm's poop on my pants until a few hrs after it happend. Chris is feeling better and it was cute having him call me on my cell phone each time he wanted fresh Gatorade ;) I will miss him tomorrow. But I got through everything, the kids show NO signs of illness, and neither do I so I am VERY grateful. Hopefully the plague is over!!!!
