nighttime excitement

Everyone in the house was asleep except me
when Kelly woke up last night complaining of a stomach ache. I gave her a sip of water and she went back to bed, only to return
around 2:30 or so -- to cough and almost throw up all over my bed!

We made it to the bathroom, but in the meantime, Mikey woke up screaming for me. Dad, being still really asleep, tried to comfort him, but he kept screaming louder and louder as I was cleaning Kelly up and getting her new PJ's.
I get her settled, and back into bed and then go to hurry and try to clean up the bathroom -- only to find ONE Clorox wipe in the container.
Mikey is screaming his head off !

I finally get back into bed and he just cries and cries and cries while I hold him. His is MAD, but after about half an hour, he falls asleep.
The bathroom light turns on almost immediately after that. I call to Kelly to find out if she needs me, and she is just cupping water in her hand and getting a drink. She gets back into her bed right after.

Then DJ is at my bedroom door.
"Kelly woke me up, and then I heard Mikey crying. It seemed like it might be a difficult situation for you, so I came up to see if you need anything"

DJ likes to have a job to do, so I asked him to go get Kelly a tiny cup of water and set it by her bed.
He goes down to the kitchen, comes back up and gives it to her, and then comes in to tell me he is going back down to bed. As he was walking out my door -- he meets Kelly running from her bed...

At least she hits the hardwood floor between the rug in her room and the carpet in the hall.

Well, DJ yells, "Oh great!!! This is all my fault for giving her water!" and is almost crying.

Kelly is crying.

Dad is sleeping through all of this.

I wake up Mr. Sleepsthroughitall, and he goes to help Kelly in the bathroom.
(by help, I mean that he stands there in the doorway while she is sick)

The baby wakes up in my arms with a huge smile on his face and is hugging my neck super tight and rubbing his face on mine.
It is one of those moments that you want to savor and bask in for as long as possible, but I have a sick 5 year old, an upset 11 year old, a tired 40 year old and a mess to clean up off the floor.

I get everyone cleaned up and settled back into bed.

Kelly has a few more, " I feel sick" and runs to the bathroom, but she is good, and Dad goes with her every time, since I have a sleeping 2 year old laying on me.

We all have just about settled down --

and then there is an earthquake.

DJ comes up again.
The earthquake was only a 3.6, but the house really shakes when you all the way upstairs --
and since he is up, I make him check on Kelly, she is almost asleep, and is not concerned about the earthquake at all.

As I am falling to sleep, I realize we also
have a Miss. Sleepsthroughitall.
Our sleepy teenage Paige missed out on all the action ~

daddy got a crockpot

We have been super busy these last couple of weeks!
Baby Mikey turned 2 on the 5th and Daddy Mikey turned 40 on the 12th.
Just yesterday Paige turned 14!
It seems like we have been baking cakes and singing Happy Birthday ever other day ~

Since Big Mikey's birthday was on a Wednesday (school night) and he didn't want to celebrate on one of the busy weekends on either end, it was a pretty
low key 40.

But the kids did get to make his cake

and I had a few decorations for him that I picked up

the kids "made his wrapping paper

and yeah, we really got him a crock pot!

October 22, 1995

I just found this recently when we were changing the kids rooms around. It was behind another picture in a frame --
I scanned it and cropped it.

It's of me. 16 years ago.

PK's Wolf Pack

My name is Patricia 
and I've been battling lupus for over 9 years now. 

It is under control at the moment with a cocktail of medications that are quite toxic 
and were meant to treat other illnesses. 
I'm trying to bring awareness to this disease so that we could find a cure for it or, at the very least, get the pharmaceutical companies to focus on a lupus treatment.  I'm happy to say that Benlysta is the result of our culminated efforts.  It's a good step forward to finding a cure. Please help me keep the momentum going.

I hope you will consider making a secure online donation to help me reach my goal for this worthy cause!  
It’s easy to do – just click on the link to support me and complete the donation process. I know times are tough, 
so any amount you can give ($1, $5, $10...) will be greatly appreciated -- 
and it's a TAX DEDUCTIBLE contribution. 
It will bring us that much closer to finding a cure. 

You are also welcomed to join 
my team 
on October 23rd, 2011 
at Golden Gate Park! 

It is estimated that 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus, an acute and chronic (lifelong) autoimmune disease in which the immune system is unbalanced, causing inflammation and tissue damage to virtually every organ system in the body. November 2008 marked 50 years since a drug has been approved for the treatment of lupus. There is hope on the horizon, and with your help we can find better treatments and a cure.

Making a difference starts with one step. Thank you for taking this step!

ghostly hands

You may or may not know that I love all art projects that use your kid's hand prints!
-- I have a cute Turkey one and a cute Christmas Tree one that I like to do since both come out great with different sized hands.
So when I saw all the ghosts being made in Kindergarten this year, we had to make our own! DJ was still at school when we did these, so my Tree will be filled with more ghosts once I get a hold of him ~
