Not that I'm complaining. (I NEVER complain ;-) I know it could be worse. Two years ago, just before Christmas when I was pregnant with Elle, a rotavirus-like bug blew through this house like a tornado on crack. I had just finished 4 months of multiple-barfs-a-day morning sickness like I had never experienced with the boys. This virus ripped through me in about 12 hours, all during the night and all through which I took care of two boys alternating between losing it at either end every 5 or ten minutes. We must have gone through every single sheet, blanket, mattress pad, towel and set of pajamas in the house. I really don't think I slept more than 20 minutes that whole night. The virus lasted the boys TEN days, left Cal a walking skeleton, started Mike on a month of illness and landed Tate in the hospital for days. It was more than slightly unpleasant.
Here is what I've learned in all this:
1. waterproof crib mattress pads and sheets fit very nicely over two of the cushions on our couch.
2. If you wrap a towel around a pillow...either over or under the pillowcase.... you may save yourself washing pillows
3. At least children that are really sick are generally not running around being naughty.
4. No matter how ungreen it may be, bleach smells really good.
