we've been under quarantine.

well, this has been quite a crazy week. kieran has been home sick since tuesday. he's had a fever for four days which is unusual for him & a snotty nose. it has been challenging to be up at night with both a sick kid & an infant. between diaper changes, feedings, burping & rocking & wiping noses, rubbing backs, dosinfg medicine, trips to the bathroom, aaron & i are both pretty tired. i'm lucky if i can get a shower in during the day, it's been really hard finding a minute to go pump when the kids are all content, & aaron has been busy busy busy with work & being self employed makes it hard to just take a day off whenever. i've been trying to get to target all week & while i have no problem taking the baby with me, i can't drag kieran all over to run errands....ugh. i'm starting to wish i was working somewhere full time. at least i wouldn't have to bring an infant seat into the bathroom with me.

oh, and the last thing i'll whine about is that aaron took kieran to the doctor yesterday & it was assumed that he just had a bad cold, but today they got test results back & turns out it's the flu. we went to go get the flu medicine that they said would shorten the duration of it--it was $130. i laughed, said that was ridiculous, & did not get it. after four days of being sick i think kieran's starting to get a little better, that kind of money is outrageous for something that i can't even be sure of will really help.

oh yeah, & really this is the last last thing i'll whine about: madyn seems to have a cold. we're trying to hard to keep her from getting what kieran has but she already has a runny nose & is snorty & congested. i hate when tiny babies are sick, it's so sad.

on the bright side, i did manage to get a couple decent kid pictures for our holiday card! being absolutely insane, i decided the other morning that even though i was completely overwhelmed & still hadn't showered in two days, it would be a good idea to photograph the children for our holiday card. i only threw a few tantrums during the photo shoot--it's incredibly difficult to direct three kids, one being sick, one being a three year old spaz, & one without control of her head. but i was actually surprised with the pictures at the end of it, quite successful after all. thank goodness for a few victories.

in conclusion, thank god it's friday :)
