So much for TCBing

January 17th, 2011 at 06:44 am

I am now convinced it's useless to make a to-do list and actually plant to cross anything off of it once you have children.

I had a ton to do today, both work and otherwise. I was JUST about to put my head on the pillow last night when kid 1 walks in the room. I pick him up to put him to bed and he barfs everywhere. Projectile. Great.

I had to change his sheets, clean his floor, change his clothes. Everything. So we sit up together for a while, he says he's okay, I put him to bed. Five minutes later, he's up again, barfing. And on it went. Didn't get to bed until 2:30 a.m. Decided to keep him and his brother home from the sitters. Had to cancel all of my meetings today, and pray like heck I can reschedule them for Wednesday.

Now, we're all home. I'm exhausted. He's lower energy, but still high energy because he's a toddler. No naps in my future. Lots of laundry. And I'm just praying me and brother don't get sick, too.

Oh well. Always a wrench in the plans, right?

    That is the way it always goes. Girlfriend, you are singing my song! Just today speech was cancelled for one child and then other child wants to move her plans up because we don't have to be someplace, then that screws up the rest of my driving plans, etc.

    Hope your kiddo is feeling better and doesn't pass it to #2! Hang in there!

    I'm wondering if kid 2 already had it. He barfed a couple of times this weekend-- at night, of course, but is fine now.

    Yep. Life with kids. My girls don't get sick nearly as much as they did when little, but they still have days where they don't go to school and it messes with my plans. Just they way it is.

    Ah--Life with kids--never linear, always surprising. CCF is right, when they get older they don't get sick so often. Much patience and energy wished for you!

    Sorry your kid is not feeling well. Hopefully it will pass soon.

    Oh, those are the things I dont miss with all my kids grown. I know that 'exhausted, too much to do without a break' feeling all too well...I hope you can sneak at least a little nap in today and that you are successful at resetting your meetings. Hugs.

    Oh I hope things get better. And what's with calling it "projectile vomiting"? There has to be a better name, like tsunami vomiting or ceiling spewing? It is just brutal. Hang in there. Put the "to do" list on hold. It's not really that important.

    When you have kids, all plans are soft! Don't stress.

    Hope kid#2 doesn't get it (and you don't get it either!)

  10. ThriftoRama Says:

    Kid 2 has it and I do too now. This is why women's life spans are shorter if they get married and have kids-- Mommy has to take care of everybody, and there is no time to take care of herself. ; )

  11. frugaltexan75 Says:

    Well, hope you get feeling better soon then!

    It will get better :-) My youngest turns 11 this March, and I so miss the days of having little ones around the house. We are moving out of state, so I had to go through their baby clothes and only keep one box. That was a very hard thing to do.

    yuck--poor you.
    Hang in there.
    Think of the easy (ha) weight loss!
