Bloody buggar of a cold!

If your looking for the review of my psychic reading scroll down a post...

Bryn and I have finally succumb to the cold that Dave, Erik and Luey have all been struggling with for the past couple of weeks, and so from about 3am this morning, I haven't slept. Bryn would sleep for about 15 minutes, then snort and realising he couldn't breathe properly, then whinge and complain and KICK for about 20 minutes (on the boob), and then doze off again. Because he was waking so much, I found myself unable to get back to sleep, just waiting for him to stir again... So, no sleep for me since about 3am...

As you can see here, Bryn has just collapse from exhaustion! Yes, it is yet ANOTHER photo of him sleeping in front of the tv, and you might be wondering if this happens all the time, and why I'm obsessed with taking photos of it happening... Well, no it doesn't happen all the time. In fact, I've been working on him NOT watching the dvds, but this morning, with him and Luey at home and with me being somewhat sleep deprived, I've resorted to the one eyed nanny. Thought this was a cute photo though, such a man in the making, the DVD cover in one hand and the remote in the other... He ever stirred when I went to take this photo and momentarily let go of the remote but then *in his sleeping* his hand searched the seat beside him until it found the "magic clicker" again...

I'm kind of getting sick of us lot being sick... But on the upside, it has led to some interesting conversations with Erik, a chance to catch up with him a bit. Yesterday he asked me (and Dave apparently) if there was anything I wanted that I couldn't have. I told him I'd really like a girl, LOL, and he wanted to know what I'd name her, or rather them (he thought I'd like three, but I explained I didn't want girls INSTEAD of my boys, but AS WELL AS)... He'd asked Dave the same question, and we believe this is because he couldn't go to Liam's birthday party yesterday because he wasn't well, and we needed him to get better so he could go to school today. I just thought it was interesting that he's gone beyond the thought process of, "I want to, it's not fair that I can't", to "Maybe other people also don't get to do stuff they want to do"... It shows he's maturing!

Luey has finally started to show an interest in writing. Just in the last day or so he's been trying to write stuff and asking how to spell stuff he wants to write. I'm kind of relieved as I was beginning to think he had no interest in this stuff, or even that maybe he was put off learning this stuff because Erik seems to be getting quite the hang on it now (Luey is well known for not attempting to do things Erik has already figured out how to do, it's like he doesn't want to compete with Erik in case he comes up short)...

Anyway, enough rambling...

Urg... having just finished up our latest round of sickies a week ago, my sympathies, especially on the up-all-nightness! So neat to see Erik and Luey growing... makes me eager to see L at that stage, making those discoveries, though I don't want him to grow up either! LOL
