Holy COW! James has gastro!!!!!!
God help us! James was all ready for school this morning, bag packed, I came out of the bathroom dressed and ready to go when he said 'mummy cuddle'..... that was CUE for VOMIT, VOMIT on me, the couch the floor.... EVERYWHERE!
James has literally done upwards of 20 vomits.... James has still been trying to drink his milk which is making him vomit even more, I suppose he is getting a little fluid in that way!
James is miserable.
The couch is miserable.
The carpet is miserable.
The dry cleaners have been called in and they will be here Monday to fix what this bug does to our furniture.
God help us if Scarlett gets it! She just ate sausages and saurkraut for lunch so that could be interesting to clean up.
I know kids get sick, I can't handle vomit. I wish my Mum lived close because today would be one of those call on Nanny days. It's hard to chase Scarlett, clean vomit and lay with James because he wants to be stuck to me when he is unwell.
Thank goodness we have a great daddy. Daddy headed to the school and dropped off our Christmas donations for the shoe box drive and he went to the education shop to pick up a Time Timer. Time Timer is not cheap. $48.95 for a TIMER, my gosh!
ASD is not cheap. The therapy, specialists, supplements, alternative therapies and the STUFF. By STUFF I mean all the EXTRA STUFF you are told to buy.
Ball pitts, trampolines, fit balls, swings (2 special swings) flash cards, ipads, therapeutic music, sensory toys and tools, TIMERS, charts the list goes on and on and on. Just this week I have spent 450 at the Therapy store for sensory tools, $48.95 on a TIMER, $60 on therapeutic listening, $80 on 2 special feeding plates..... meh.
I still haven't purchased the flash cards the speech therapist wants us to buy for home. That's another $150. It's insane.
I was looking at some beautiful new crystal glasses yesterday that I really want, sick of giving people old mismatched glasses when they visit.
Crystal glasses are one of those things that I need to put at the bottom of the list because James' therapy and his list comes first.
Scarlett needs new shoes now too lol. I have searched high and low for her summer shoes..... I keep asking her 'where are your shoes?' she replies 'they are in the garden'..... i have searched the garden and I CAN NOT FIND THEM.
They say when you become a mother you become selfless..... one day I will get my crystal glasses.
Peace OUT, I am back to clean up some more vomit and sip at my 3rd coffee (first to got some extra milk, if you know what I mean) for today!
