Crap. That's what I feel like. Total crap. Oh well, it's not like I can just curl up in bed with some chocolate milk and watch Bride Wars and 27 Dresses. Nope, I am taking care of my sick baby boy and my crazy 2 year old. Now that the crap has gone around the whole house, I know that I am in for some serious cleaning. So, I brushed up on some cleaning techniques. Here are some of the books I have been reading.
THIS one is my favorite.
I guess there are some good points in dealing with all this grossness. For example, my complexion has improved from sitting in the bathroom steaming Brody. It was like having a facial 3 times a night! I guess it's good that I am going to clean the crap out of the house (literally). I haven't done it in a long time and now it is inevitable.
In this book it says this:
When your child is home sick, she can spread germs around the house faster than she can down Jell-O. Keep bacteria in check-and the rest of the family well (um, too late)- by paying extra attention to these three areas.
Bath towels: Since viruses can survive on fabric, give your sick child a towel in a different color so her siblings know not to share. Wash is as soon as she gets well. (While she's sick, old germs won't hurt her, so there's no need to wash it daily. Same goes for sheets.) Awesome... no sheets yet.
Bathtubs: Germs can get splashed around in water so don't bathe siblings together. Rubber bath toys should also be disinfected.
Light switches: Banish germs from switches and video-game controls using disinfecting wipes. Right, that means disinfecting Daylen's room. Wish me luck....
I will be spending the day preparing for the DAY OF DISINFECTING (tomorrow). I am being optimistic that Brody will be feeling better and then it's on!
