Another change of plan

Just popped in to say thank you so much for all the kind comments yesterday - I'll reply to them all as soon as I can.

Rachel seems to be feeling better.  She spent most of last night wide awake in a loud and happy mood.  I ended up getting about three hours sleep (hence my lack of online time today), though I'd rather be kept awake because she's overly happy than have her be ill, so I 'm not complaining.

Of course, this morning she was exhausted (me too), so I kept her at home today.  Any ideas I had about going online were pretty much scuppered when her twin sister, Emma, who's also autistic, threw up at school and I had to fetch her home (Rachel had to come along for the ride). 

All in all, an interesting day.

Ah well,  I guess it helps me appreciate the good ones.

I'll try to catch up with everyone tomorrow, but if you don't see me around, it means I went back to bed. 

In the meantime, I need to give someone a bath.

Take care, get some rest. You've earned it, and we'll try to survive without you a few days.

Hugs. Hang in there. I know all about happy midnight concerts and yes, it's better to have a happy one than an unhappy one, but still, SLEEP is important :D

The dad thing isn't an easy gig, eh? Get rest. Hope everyone feels better soon. (((hugs)))

'...The dad thing isn't an easy gig...'

I'm considering hiring a stunt double, but you know how much those guys charge ;)

They're very expensive, especially in the 'dad' case. I understand they charge double what they do for jumping off roofs.

Jumping off roofs? Pah! Try changing five thousand nappies in five years - yes, it's sad that I kept count ;)

Hehehehee. Nappies. I love that word. I've a friend, a transplant from Ireland, who said nappies instead of diapers. It always made me giggle with joy.

Ok, I think I have you beat. Four kids. A combined total of ten years in nappies. I think there is a landfill somewhere with my kids' names emblazoned on a plaque nearby.

Sadly, my girls weren't toilet-trained until they were five, so my combined total is about twelve years-worth of nappies, and that last year was brutal :)

Oh, yikes! I bow to the king of the nappies!

Oh, you do have your hands full. I'm glad everything went okay yesterday and your daughter is feeling better. Your spirits sound good despite the lack of sleep. I hope you do get a nap in. A little downtime for yourself is absolutely required when parenting (just very hard to find). Best to you and your daughters.

I got a straight eight hours last night, so I'm feeling much more awake today, thanks :)

I didn't see the original post, but I hope everyone feels better soon. Those are some tough days (and nights).

And here's your hug returned (ok, not returned, but maybe reciprocated?), because methinks you need it more!
