Poor baby girl is not well. I discovered this last night after I stumbled up the stairs at midnightish (fell asleep on the sofa watching Greys, not a reflection on Greys, just knackered) and went into the girls room to check them. I was hit by a smell and instantly knew someone had been sick . Little Miss M was asleep with a rather nasty patch on her bed, this little one just does not kick up a fuss when she's sick!
I then had to fidget about in the semi darkness (thank goodness for night lights) get the poor thing up, whip the bedding off (straight into the washing machine, yay for washing machines) find her new bedtime clothes and a new snugger (her comfort blanket) and take her downstairs to be cleaned up. She was asking for a bath but as I didn't want to wake the entire house hold I made do with a flannel and a ton of baby wipes. Luckily the hair seemed fairly clear, hate it when you get your hair covered, yuck! Once she was clean and dry she seemed quite happy to play, I was desperately trying to encourage a bit of sitting about and being quiet but she thought "well. we're up, must be time to play". Actually it was a good job I didn't get her straight back in her bed cos we had repeat throwing up performances for the next hour or so. She wasn't particularly bothered, just a bit bemused by all this stuff trying to escape her mouth, she was trying to prevent it escaping.... not a good plan. So hands, sofa, floor and mummy then needed clearing up (thank god for leather sofas) and finally she seemed to have settled, two o clock bedtime for me .
Madam seems fine now, although she is very quiet for herself, so somethings not right! We don't normally do lying about on the floor watching telly. I'm hoping for some actual sleep so that I can maybe have a snoozey myself for a few minutes... we'll see.
Of course I now have the added guilt of not going into work. I was stressing about it as soon as I got into my bed last night/this morning . I don't know why I feel guilty, I can't avoid the little girl being at home, I certainly didnt plan my nightime adventures and I'd much rather have been in bed.... so why the extra guilt? Must be a mum thing, guilty about everything I think!
I am watching a nice selection of Night Garden, Balamory, Big Cook Little Cook now and if I wasn't tired before I am almost comatose now .... still little lady is yawning, so fingers crossed for a nap .
