Josiah woke up from his nap in very bad condition. This was more or less to be expected.
BUT, I was not expecting Joshua (4) to wake up croupy!!!
And, though Nelson (almost 8) is way too old to have croup, he coughed and sounded like a seal. And, since he didn't even touch his lunch, I know he is very sick too.
Paul leaves for work at 3:30ish am. What am I going to do with 1, 2, or 3 (or more?! - heaven help us!) croupy little ones?!!!! I have no one nearby to call to stay the night with me... there is no one who is not scared of sickness.
I have further resolved my decision that when I am an older mother and my youngest ones are grown, I WILL help mamas with their sick babies!
Oh, God, please help me!
