The Plague

So the plague hit the family this past weekend. Fortunately only Kailey had it. But what you don't know is when Kailey is sick, everyone knows about it and suffers as well. She is a bit dramatic with pain and the whole house can hear her. She cries, she screams, she begs and pleads like someone is killing her. "mommy help me", "I cant do this anymore", "Please help me", "ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh". Yep I can go on.

The throwing up began at 10:30pm, at about 2:30am that morning she was begging for her life, and believe me at that time I really wanted to kill her, just put her out of her misery, but I was trying to be the good mother that I am and console her, but really there was nothing I could do. Jax was awake for the beginning part of it, he was concerned and curious as to what was going on in the bathroom. He couldn't sleep with all the noise going on. But seriously who could.

At one point he began to cry, I thought he was worried about his sister because you would have thought she was dying. So here I am, in and out of the bathroom with a child getting sick and crying, back to the bed where I was consoling Jax from crying because he was worried.

And where was Isreal, the father?? He was hiding in the living room because he didn't want to catch the dreaded bug.

At about 11pm Jax began to cry again, I said "seriously why are you crying now?", I'm not sure if he was deliriously tired or what but he was crying because he wanted his sister to throw up. He states, "I want Kailey to throw up", I said "what?".  He says, "well I don't want to see her throw up, I just want to hear her throw up", "what is wrong with this child?" He was wishing the ultimate punishment on his sister just so he can hear. He kept saying "I want to hear Kailey throw up" I didn't even know what to say, I started laughing, and Kailey began to cry.

So there you have it, my night was Hell, one kid wishing the other kid was puke and one kid thinking she was dying, and my sweet husband hiding in living room with all his support from the couch!! Good times!!

Thankfully it was a quick stomach bug and Kailey survived, the plague didn't kill her and she is lucky that I didn't either. Jax got his wish, he heard Kailey get sick a few more times and peacefully fell asleep. Everyone was better the next morning!!!
