Taking Care of Twins: Sick Just Got Real™

As many of you know (and some of you might not), I recently had TWINS, which is so awesome. They are everything I have never known that I always wanted. Pure perfection. They are boy/girl fraternal twins that are literally different in every way. Different, but still perfect.

What is not so perfect, is the crying. One crying is fine, but when they both get going – find the ear plugs because it gets LOUD. That’s one thing I’m still learning how to navigate with these twins, caring for them at the same time when they’re distressed. I can only be one one physical space at a time so, more often than not, the one crying the loudest will likely be taken care of first. It’s tough being the quiet one.

That being said, I can’t even imagine what life is going to look like when they both get sick at the same time. Crying that can’t be controlled by soothing, feeding, or changing is rough with just one baby – I can’t even imagine with two! Do they have nannies that just come in when a kid is sick? If so, I totally want to hire one of those! HA!

As unrealistic as a “Sick Nanny” may be, do you ever find yourself wishing for the impossible when handling sick kids? I saw this video and thought it was dead on! #AMomCanDream, right?

Obviously, we just want our kids to be healthy, but it would be nice to have that wine on tap, wouldn’t it?

So far, I just have one sick kid in the house so I can confidently say that Sick Just Got Real™! I had to visit the ER with my son today, only to find out that he has croup and there is nothing that doctors can do about it. It IS contagious though, so I might find out just how real sick can get with TWO sick babies real soon!

To help you out when you can say Sick Just Got Real™, I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card, provided by the good folks over at Pfizer.

Good luck!!!

Party Time at the Skokie Exploritorium

Exploritorium-Skokie

For the last two years, we have been invited to a birthday party at the Exploritorium in Skokie. It’s quite a drive for us, but we really can’t say no to an opportunity to hang out at the Exploritorium. We used to drive to Skokie frequently before my in-laws moved to Florida, but never have […]

I am a homeschooling mama. Well..sorta. My son is currently 5-years-old, enrolled in preschool, AND is being homeschooled at the first grade level. Yeah, he’s all kinds of smart.

Fun and Learnin’ at the SciTech Hands On Museum

SciTech-Hands-On-Museum-Aurora.jpg

My son has – and probably always will – love science. And I’m not talking an it’s-cool-to-do-experiments kind of love, I’m talking more of an I’m-totally-obsessed-and-don’t-want-to-do-anything-else kind of love/obsession. I can almost guarantee (unless you’re kinda geeky too) that he can tell you more about certain scientific subjects than you have ever cared to know. […]
