I don't have any rl friends. :
So I passed out within moments of posting that message last night. I was awakened a few hours later (at exactly the WRONG part of my sleep cycle by violent coughing. It was BooBah, coughing and unable to stop... and throwing up on herself. Two-thirty in the morning, and I've got a coughing, puking kid on me. Bella was looking much pinker when we turned the light on, but BooBah was miserable. We finally got her into the bathtub, and after she puked a few more times, the steam slowed her coughing down and she finally stopped. I tried to get her to drink some mint tea, but she was kind of meh on it-- took two sips before she fell asleep again. She did sit and inhale the minty steam, though, and that was nice. And this morning, though coughing, she's energetic and relatively decent. Bella's extra whiny with a side of shrieks. Decidedly ill, but it could be worse.
Last night while I was braiding BooBah's hair to keep it out of her face in case she puked again, I found out why she's so creeped out by seeing Seamonkey move. She started asking questions and I realized that she was concerned that she would wake up one day and find that there was a baby in *her* uterus!! Poor kid! She was really upset and confused by all of it, and I guess while I was combing her hair, she could feel him wiggling around in there and she wanted to know how it had happened. I told her that little girls can't get babies in their uteruses, and furthermore it wasn't something that would just happen by magic, you had to do things first to cause a baby to grow in your uterus. She felt a lot better about it then, and I think she's less weirded out by seeing him wiggle around in there. The things that little kids think of! It's no wonder that they get so upset so much of the time.
I don't have any RL friends either, to tell you the truth. I am so busy with work, then when I am home, I don't want to do anything because I am so tired.
I am sorry to hear she is still sick
