A little glimpse....

This week started out so good and promising.  It ended up being very long and a hard week.

This week my 3 year old started preschool!!  I am super excited about him going to preschool, I get a little break from his craziness.  He is my busy boy, he is constantly "on" and never has a down moment.  So it will be nice to have a little quiet a couple times a week.  Sadly, he wasn't so excited.  I left him crying and so sad.  It's so hard to do it but it is definitely needed.  

This little guy has speech problems.  Pretty bad actually, so hopefully going to school will help him.  This is actually my second son that has done speech before going to kindergarten.  Did you know that they had early childhood programs?  They are great!  If you have a child that you think might need speech, don't wait until they go to school, do it now.  I started him at the age of 2 and it has helped a lot! 

Half way through the week, all four of my kids got sick.  On Wednesday, I had all four of them home sick.
2 had double ear infections
3 had pink eye
1 had a cold
1 was throwing up
Yes that equals to 7, two of them had ear infections and pink eye and my 5 year old was throwing up on top of everything.  We had sleepless nights.  My baby and 5 year old were the worse, their fevers wouldn't break and were just miserable.  She just wanted to be held, day and night.  My 5 year old missed the whole week of school.  They are finally on the mend and hopefully will be completely better soon, I'm ready for more than 4 hours of sleep.

We had a barfy week here, too. One chest infection, two gastro. You win. :)

Oh my! I feel so sorry for the week you've had! I'm glad you all survived and everyone's on the mend... sounds like Mom needs an "All About Me Day" in the near future!!

I hope you are all feeling better. Pink eye is a beast to get rid of. Last year we went to see family in Utah and one of my boys got it the first day there - we gave it to every cousin....then we gave it all back to ourselves for round two when we got home...ugh!!!! Good LUCK!!!

Poor kiddos - don't you wish for magic REALLY badly when they are sick - Tylenol just doesn't seem to cut it!

Poor kiddos. I hope they are feeling better!

Our son has speech delays as well. We started with the county program at 15 months. I think it is so important to start early and do it as frequently as you can in the beginning. Hoping school goes well once everyone is well.
