Too tired to think up a clever title! :D

So... this is what 90 minutes of sleep feels like....!!  Ooof!!   Rough night ??  Why yes!  Yes it was!!  The breathing treatment they gave Millie was not as effective as the one the PD gave us a coupld of weeks ago so we spent a lo~ho~HoT of time trying to help Millie and hubster took her out several times into the cold air.  Sheesh.  By morning... ( and by "morning" I mean 5:30 when all hope of getting any more sleep was lost ) she was fully recovered.  and THAT is the nature of Croup, Ladies and Gentlemen!

After refusing the steroid shot at the hospital last night I had assured the doctor I would contact our Pediatrician (our FABULOUS Pediatrician!) so first thing this morning I gave them a call.. of COURSE they had an appointment in 40 minutes.... and it takes 20 minutes to get there... and I wasn't even DRESSED yet!!  Eeep.  A super fast shower and a quick change later and I was almost ready to go.  My BELOVED daughter made me a cup of tea in a travel mug and a piece of toast with peanut butter and smashed banana to take with me for my breakfast!!  How LUCKY am I ?!?!  Anyway, I took Miss M into the PD's office ( and whilst waiting the hospital called my cell to check up on the baby! ) and he told me he was glad I didn't let her have the shot!!!  YES!!!!  I love it when I do the right thing every once in a while!  The PD said he has tried to tell them at the hospital that it doesn't do any good and he's shown them information and what not... He's going to try again now he said!!  Ho hum.  Anyway I picked up a prescription from the doc and headed to Super Target to fill it.  There was going to be a 30 minute wait ( oh darn....  what COULD I do to fill the time...??!!) so I wandered the store in my element! Once the prescription was filled and what not we headed back home to find Jessie had, once again, cleaned the kitchen and tidied up!! :D  She watched Millie for me whilst Jack and I started  some chicken soup cooking on the stove.  Jack's so keen to cook, it's just heart warming!

Later in the day the big kids were playing Minecraft together.  Little sister was keen to join in.  She enjoys watching the iPod and iPad and DESPERATELY tries to have a go on them!  Watching her big brother and sister play was just TOO MUCH to ignore!!...

I can't tell you how much I love this picture!

teamwork!! :D
Of course a good dose of Minecraft results in the children wandering around with their arms out, groaning and demanding "Braaaains".... LOL!!  Zombies?  Really!?! :D  

So after all that fun we tried to get a nap out of our sweet baby.  Hah.  20 minutes. NOT a nap!  I was falling asleep nursing her and LONGED to get into bed myself but (foolishly) told myself I'd nap AFTER I paid the bills.  You can guess what I heard over the baby monitor no sooner had I closed down the bill payer app, right?!!  She's aWAAAake!!  GAH!!  

Tonight we are trying a new tactic...!  BATHTIME!!  Millie LOVES to have a bath ( she doesn't have one often but the last time she did, she discovered splashing!!!  She actually CRIED when I took her out !! ) Our bath plug doesn't always work and it seems silly to fill a whole bath for a little baby so I bathed her in a plastic container!! ;D  I sat her in it and SPLASH SPLASH SPLASH!!  I was soaked in no time but she was having SUCH FUN!!!   Hubby came in and took a pic or two.....

Action shot!!!

so after a warm bath it was a warmed towel, then lovely clean (100% cotton) clothes, a cotton blanket all swaddled up and some nice Milk....!!  (Please please PLEASE let this result in some more sleep!!)


And in other news, you may (or may not?! :D ) have wondered what happened to Flylady at our house!?!  ( ahem ) I guess she's TECHNICALLY still here but perhaps she got caught in one of the spider webs or dust bunnies!!  To be honest I am so dog tired right now and as Millie isn't napping I don't get any time to actually DO anything!!  I can't keep a decent eye on the little mischief AND clean the house.  If we ever get naps sorted out then I can't WAIT to get on top of my home again!  I LOVE the way it feels when it's clean and orderly.... not perfect, just tidy!!  Some day, right!?! Someday.
