Time To Cry

I haven't slept well in weeks.

Maxwell's been battling an ear infection and amoxicillin wasn't working after 5 days so we went to something else. Because his sleeping hasn't gotten any better after day 5 of Cefdinir I took him in to see if his ears weren't clearing up.

Thankfully they were all clear.

Please note, I'm extremely tired while writing this so I guarantee that it'll be confusing and jumbled.

Anyways, the doc says that Maxwell's ears were all clear which, even though he hasn't been sleeping, is good news. Of course, if it were due to an ear infection that was persisting - trying another medication would be the clear answer and a potential medical fix for his poor sleep. Being positive though, it means that he doesn't have an antibiotic resistant ear infection. And even more positive, it doesn't mean that we have to look into tubes or anything for his ears yet. I'm optimistic that we won't have to do tubes, but I was nervous that we might.

So last night, after getting the OK from the doctor, we let Maxwell cry it out. We went in about every 5-10 minutes to hold him just long enough to calm him down, put him back in the crib, pat his butt, and try to get him back to sleep. He was screaming from 11:40-2:00 easily.

Anyways, after Maxwell finally seems to be asleep we hear Nolan screaming at the top of his lungs and guess what? He's throwing up!

I can't catch a damn break with the kids being sick and never sleeping.

To anyone with multiples or with more than 2 kids...

Now would be a good time to invest in Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

I count myself extremely lucky that my kids are generally healthy and hopefully this is a blip on the radar. But when my kids are teenagers I'm going to enjoy waking them up to get them ready for school. MUAHAHAHHAHA

But right now I'm so tired that any little emotional thing will set me off. It's like the tears are just right there ready to fall and I just need the sad news article to send me into a spiral.

Also - this is my first post since the election and all I can say is FUCK TRUMP and the idiots that voted for him.
