Snotty Children and Sleep Deprivation!

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

With Gracie starting school this September we knew it wouldn't be long until we experienced the joy of her bringing home bugs to share with the rest of the family. This week we've been living in the house of snot. I thought I would be fine as I haven't had a cold since having the flu jab months ago. However I didn't think of how badly having three children up at intervals in the night would affect me. 

Gracie came home Friday with her first cold of the season which slowly got worse and worse leaving her crying in the night and me following her around in the day picking up a trail of snotty tissues as I went. It was only yesterday when I spotted her and Zach had been swapping drinks bottles that I realised what would happen next. Then last night, yes you've guessed it, it was Zach's turn for crying all night and struggling to breathe. Then there is Elsie who thinks sleep is for losers making my nights just that bit more difficult! 

Sleep deprivation is well and truly kicking in. I'm getting awful migraines that along with the tiredness make me feel sick. 

Someone please tell me it gets better?! Does anyone have any tips for boosting children's immune systems? I'd love for you to share!
