UGH!!! School vent!!

My son is in kindergarten this year.  Well, this week, he was out on Monday for MLK day, then yesterday it snowed, so they closed school.  Today they were supposed to be on a 2-hour delay, but no, they had to go ahead and close school again.  It sucks because I haven't slept in the past 3 nights, I'm 31 weeks pregnant, and I have a cold that won't go away.  When he's in school, I can usually get my 3 year old to take a little nap right after lunch, but he won't go down for a nap if the 5 year old is home.  So, another long day for me with no sleep whatsoever.  And of course, they get up early today.

will they be good if you lay on the couch and put in a movie or some toons for them? Then you could at least lay down and rest ?

They are brothers, they fight like crazy over what to watch or what toy to play with.  Once I get something going on TV, they usually agree on it.  I've got to try to rest a little today.  I can't keep going on if I don't.

That wouldn't be good.  My boys were sick over the weekend, they both had strep.  And of course, I got sick from them, not strep ( I don't think), just a cold, but it still sucks.

This is going to sound really goofy but for your cold at night try the Breathe Right strips. No kidding they really work. Again, they are goofy but you'll be able to breathe much better and hopefully sleep much better.
