What do you do when the kids are in bed?

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

Let’s keep this clean…..ish but I was wondering what you all do after the kids go to bed?

Most of the time, Lizze and I are so exhausted by the end of the day that we crash on the couch and watch Netflix and work on our respective blogs.

Tonight, Lizze and I are watching the first two episodes of Hell’s Kitchen before we try to go to sleep. After a really stressful day, it’s nice to watch someone else getting screamed at for a change. :-)

Whats wrong with this picture?

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

Last night I went to check on Elliott before go to bed.  This is what I found.  Can you see what’s wrong with this picture?

Let me give you a clue.  It’s not so much what’s wrong but what’s missing.

When I went to tuck my 6 year old son Elliott, this is what I found.  What’s missing? That’s simple, Elliott. In Elliott‘s place was Emmett’s dog Bella

Apparently, she had kicked Elliott out of his own bed last night

Bella is one of those dogs that likes to really snuggle.  Sometimes she doesn‘t realize that she takes you so much room.  She means well but is struggling with boundaries. Ironically, that may need why she fits in so well.  :-)

The long night ahead

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

It’s going to be a really long night.  Lizze’s meds have made her sick to her stomach and Emmett is still not feeling well.  We’ve played musical beds already.  Emmett climbed into bed with us and Lizze moved into his bed.

I’ve got to figure out a way to help Lizze get through this.

I’m so tired and I was going to sleep on the couch because as crappy as the couch is,  it’s better for my back right now than our bed. My hope is that Lizze will get some much needed rest and Emmett will as well.

When your little one can’t sleep

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

I have honestly lost track of the time.  It’s either really late or really early.  :-)
Emmett,  my littlest minion,  is not feeling well and has a runny nose. I know it may not seem like a big deal but for a child with #Autism and various sensory issues,  it really is a big deal.

Emmett struggles with the sensation for his nose running.  He basically panics and doesn’t know what to do.

It’s heartbreaking really.  We are out of benedryl,  so it’s going to be a long night. I sent Lizze to bed awhile ago because she hasn’t been sleeping much lately,  which is ironic for someone with hypersomnia and chronic fatigue.

Emmett and I have decided to squishy couch.  Basically,  we push the two couches together and make one giant bed.

Anyway, Emmett is under his weighted blanket and chillin with his tablet.  We have Color Crew on NetFlix in the background and he’s getting tired and will hopefully fall asleep soon. Daddy’s very tired and needs his beauty sleep.

The truth of the matter is, that as a parent,  we endure many uncomfortable or unpleasant things for the betterment of our little ones. When our little ones have special needs,  it’s that much more important to provide whatever comfort we can,  when we can.  If that means a sleepless night on a giant uncomfortable bed, made from two crappy couches,  than so be it.  :-)

Three’s a crowd

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

The last couple of nights Emmett hasn’t been sleeping well.  Around midnight,  he makes his way into our bed and takes up all my space.  I’m not sure what’s going on with him at moment but this doesn’t promote a restful sleep as I end up on the couch.

Then of course there’s Bella. She follows Emmett and takes up the rest of my side of the bed

It really doesn’t bother me and in a way it’s kinda cute. If I wanted to sleep in my bed I would just move Emmett back into his. However, if he sleeps better than it’s totally worth it.  :-)

I took this picture last night before moving to the couch.

Go back to bed

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

I have been saying that for the past few hours now. Elliott has been up since just before 4am.

I’m not sure why he’s getting up this early.  I can’t even see straight to type this right now. As long as one of the boys is awake,  so am I.

Somethings got to give.

I should have stayed in bed

PinterestLinkedInRedditShare/Bookmark

I woke up this morning to the realization that today is Friday the 13th.  Honestly,  I’m not a superstitious guy but having said that,  it’s Friday the 13th.

I have already been back and forth to the Ford dealership and in a little bit,  Emmett is being seen by his pediatrician for the second fever flare.  We spoke with immunology last night and the said there is nothing we can do aside from 1ml of Benadryl,  4 times per day.  It’s something about reducing the inflammation.

Outside of that,  all we can do is manage the pain and do our best to keep him hydrated. The doctor told us if we even suspect that he may be dehydrating or stops drinking that we are to get him to the ER right away.

As far as the van goes,  I have no idea.  We may get it back today or sometime next week.

There is a laundry list of issues right now that affect the safety and reliability of the van. We only have 6 days left on the warranty so I need to get this fixed ASAP because we simply can afford anymore expenses as we are crumbling under what we already have.

If I had it my way,  I would probably have slept all the way through today and just skipped it entirely all together.  :-)
