So, I'm in bed with Parker

It's that time of year....the time for being sick. And, not just your average cold..stomach virus sick. The worst thing in the world in my opinion. I knew that we were due...it's been a while since I've been woken up in the middle of the night hearing Parker through the monitor and walking into his room to find him laying in puke. So, for the last week, I've just had a feeling that it was coming. And, I was right.

Tonight Scott and I were sitting in the living room, wathing the Bengals suck it up once again and said something to him about "watch Parker get sick and I'll be up all night long with him." and five minutes later I heard Parker whine through the monitor. I told Scott to go check on him and then I hear Scott, "Alisha, there is puke everywhere!" I was right....our time is right now.

I feel so bad for him when he is sick. There is nothing worse than watching your poor little baby throwing up and being so sick. I hate to be sick, more than the average person I think, and I would happily be sick for him. It's misery for him and it's misery for Scott and I to have to watch him be sick.

So, here I'am laying in his bed (this is one of the main reason's we bought him a full-sized big boy bed!) for the night because he wanted me to sleep with him tonight. Scott has Beckett duty. Hopefully I can ge a little shut eye, because Mr. Beckett decided last night to stay up from 1:00-7:30, so, I'm going on about 1 hour of sleep right now! Scott said, "I'm overwhelmed with all of this....what do we do? Parker is sick, we have Beckett, I don't know what to do." I told him to calm down, we're a team and there is one parent for each child, so take one and I'll take the other and we will get through it. This is what being a parent is all about....sometimes it's not fun and it get's a bit messy (literally). I will gladly take a couple of sick nights per year for all of the wonderful moments that we have with them.

Here is to hoping my baby get's better and the rest of us stay healthy. And, that I get more than an hour of sleep tonight!

Awww...you all rest up and get better. Scott sounds like Todd. Cuddle with your baby. If Ty's crib was bigger I would be in it every night!
