    Oh. My. God. Ds (2) is sick and has been all week. Dd (11 weeks) and i also have it.

    I think i may explode. Ds requires my undivided attention, keeps screaming and waking the baby who is already harder to settle atm. Went to get coffee once she was down. Boil the kettle. No cups. Nice. Do some dishes, ds comes in. 'i want i want i want' but screams when i try and give it to him. Finsh dishes, dd awake, ds: peanut butter peanut butter! So i give it to him, and am now trying to resettle bub. Ds will be in at any moment and wake her, i'm sure of it!

    Our house is trashed and i just want to sleep for a week!

    Oh yes, I dread when everyone in the house is sick at the same time. I pack a picnic basket of snacks and sandwiches, fill up the water bottles and we camp out in the lounge room with DVD's and blankets. Also have a stack of books to read and some paper and crayons.

    Good luck, hope you all recover quickly

    Hubby is sick too, and the washing machine died! So we were at the laundromat last night, and he really does help where he can. I think its just hard that i have to get bub to sleep so can't give ds attention all the time. At least its only 1 more day til the weekend!

    No advice, but I know I struggle when DH, DD and I are all sick... totally different, but I hope this brings a smile to your day... My DD is 15 months old and I am 23 weeks pregnant, with severe reflux, so I have no voice today (it comes and goes) and I sound like a man and everytime I talk to DD she looks at me as if I'm an alien (or I get half way through a sentence and then its just silence)! LOL...

    In the meantime...

    Medication for you to help .. Get some berrocca or something along those lines .. My choice is too many red bulls lol. And just keep swimming just keep swimming. It's hard but won't last forever
