It is a tiring day for me. I have no intention to cook nor bake, I just want to rest, for a few reasons:
  1. DS2 had a high fever last Tue night and DH was working late so I had to lug all 3 children to the clinic. It was a mad rush! I have not been sleeping well as I need to wake up regularly in the middle of the night to check on his temperature. He threw up one night and we had to clean him and change the bedsheets in the middle of the night. His fever finally subsided on Friday, phew.
  2. Both DD1 & DD3 started coughing and have slight runny nose on Fri. OMG! I was praying hard that they will be okay but when a child in the family falls sick, his siblings will most likely catch the virus too. DD3 started her fever last night and because her temp wasn't too high (between 37.5 - 38C), I didn't administer any medicine except for the runny nose and cough medicine. So I woke up almost every hourly to check her temp. At midnight, her temp shot up to 39.5C and after giving her paracetamol, I had to constantly sponge her.
While I'm typing this, my eyelids are closing on me but I can't go to bed yet. I need to check DD3's temp at 12.30am. Oh well, this is part and parcel of parenthood and it's only through such events that I've learnt to appreciate my mother more.

Though I've mentioned earlier I have no intention to cook nor bake, I still have to whip up some meals. Also, I baked a sponge cake for my birthday with the children's help to decorate it. It's not a glamourous cake but the children felt proud in their participation. Will update this later when I don't feel so zombie.
