Mama, I pooped!

Definitely not the words I want to hear at 3:30 AM on a Thursday morning.  Especially when crying accompanies the statement.  I bolted out of bed and went into the girls' room.  Kylie was standing in her crib crying, and that awful smell hit me as soon as I opened the door to their room.

I picked her up and hugged her.  Then laid her down to change her diaper.  As soon as I took her sleep sack off, I could tell she leaked out of the diaper.  I got her cleaned up and changed her pants.  I threw her PJ shorts and sleep sack in the laundry.  I cuddled with her a little longer. She was happy and talking to me (which of course woke Kendall up).  Finally, I put her back in her crib and covered her up.  I said goodnight and left the room.  Once I left the girls were bouncing around a bit, and Kylie kept crying out for me that she needed a hug.  I went into their room a couple more times to comfort her.  Finally, I grabbed a bunch of blankets and took them down to the couch. I was planning to bring her downstairs with me, to let Kendall get some sleep.  Before I went to get Kylie,  I sent Rachel a text and left a voicemail for my boss to let them know I was staying home with the girls that day.   I could tell Kylie wasn't right.  Kendall had been battling stomach issues since the previous Friday, but no one else had gotten sick.  And other than one or two bad diapers a day, she had been fine. (No fever or puking, and she had a decent appetite and energy).

I went back into the girls room to grab Kylie and she was all cuddled up with her pillow and blanket.  I reached for her, but she didn't want to get out of bed.  I just stayed there and rubbed her back for a little bit.  My girls actually like sleeping in their cribs.  They've never slept in our bed with us, and rarely have slept on the couch.  I decided to see if she would fall back asleep in her bed.  (Plus, Kendall was still awake and probably would have pitched a fit if I took Kylie out of their room.)

We all fell back asleep.  (Actually, I didn't until almost 6AM). The girls woke up around 7:15.  I went in and Kylie had pooped again.  I changed her and Kevin and I took the girls into our room.  I plopped Kylie down on our bed and went to the restroom.  When I came out, Kevin was holding her over the sink.  I guess she coughed and gagged and puked up some bile.  Gross.  Guess this was a stomach bug after all.  We took the girls downstairs and I put towels all over the couch and set Kylie up with a puke bowl.  We turned on Dora, and I fully expected to be hanging out on the couch all day.

After two episodes of Dora, I got Kendall some breakfast.  Kylie started crying and carrying on that she wanted yogurt and muffins.  It was so weird for her.  Every other time she's had a tummy bug, she refuses to eat for days afterward.  I gave her some banana and water and she gobbled it down.  

After breakfast we went upstairs and Kylie wanted to get dressed, do her hair and play!  Seriously, usually she is so lethargic when she's sick.  I guess it was a super quick moving illness.

I stayed home with the girls on Friday too, just in case she was contagious.  I didn't want to run the risk of getting Rachel's whole house sick again.  We went to Kroger, met daddy for lunch at Panera, and just played.  Although, I hate the fact that she was sick for a little bit, I'm so glad I got to spend a little extra time with the girls.  We actually ended up having a really great time!
