The lack of sleep, the constant whining and the clingy children are starting to get to me. I know its not their fault, they are really miserable. Max’s temperature tends to spike at night, last night was the worst, he just couldn’t get comfortable and fussed no matter what I did. The gloomy weather is just a reflection of the mood in this house. I’ve broken the house rules and deployed the television to entertain them this afternoon. Let’s hope that I’ll get my happy, healthy children back soon.
