Had a rough night with Oscar last night - he threw up all over himself.
First time at about 11.30 - I was already asleep but heard him shout - I thought he was talking in his sleep - then make funny gurgling sounds so rushed in to find him covered in vomit and rather upset. He was still very sleepy but I took him into the bathroom and got him washed - went downstairs with him to get Rob (who was in the shed smoking) and then the two of us changed the bed, collected the puke covered toys, calmed the boy and put him down again.
I then had a shower - my sense of smell is intense at the moment and I was covered in vom....and tried to go back to sleep
Half an hour later - repeat performance. Now I only have 2 sheets for the cotbed (oops) so I put a towel down for him. He was very upset this time. He wanted his favourite teddy - a monkey called Muthy - we have 2 for occasions like this but now both were covered in vomit.
He had a restless night. Rob put the monitor in our room - it usually stays downstairs - because he was worried about Oz - but it meant that every little sniff or snuffle woke me up. And Rob snored too. So I'm shattered.
My lovely mum took care of Oz today while I did Monkey Music just to make sure he didn't pass anything infectious on to Elijah, my childminder's son. But I think he's fine. He woke up this morning asking for chicken dinner. (He had french toast). He ate a 4 sausages at lunchtime and a spoonful of peas. And a little dinner plus a yogurt. He's had a temperature but only a mild one.
So I'm keeping an eye on him. What it made me think about was what my normal nights are going to be like when a new baby is here - friends who have newborns + toddlers are telling me how tired they are - broken nights are hard when you have to be with it for a toddler the next day.....
Eek! I don't know how you mothers of more than one do it.....
